I have a 1985 Toyota HJ47 Landcruiser and wonder if anyone can tell me the colour code for the bright yellow paint used on all the body?

Many thanks

If it has the original factory build plate (the jap one with the indented lettering not the aust complicence plate with the raised lettering) the paint code should be on the plate

Thanks Don but the plate is missing - that's why I hoped someone would know the code as they were all painted the same yellow colour

532 may be correct for yellow

I know a lot of the codes but i am not 100% sure on yellow

I managed to find a Code 576 for a colour called Solar Yellow - does that ring a bell?

Go & ask a panel shop, at least they will be able to see the colour.

They will probably also have colour swatches.

If you go to this web site & find the fj40 section you can click on 532 & it will find a photo of a fj40 in this paint colour

You actually need to click on the camera shaped symbol beside the word yellow to bring up the photo

A lot of toyota people think of the late hj47 is the best cruiser ever made as a off road workhorse & it is a shame they didn't come with power steer like the fj45 as it is a bit of a bugger to steer at low speeds

Everytime i get in one of these old rockets i reaise how soft i have become with everything now having power steering as standard

Years ago i used to drive these things & others & think nothing of it

Agreed Donk, HJ47 one goooood Cruiser. Could never figure why the petrols had power steering and the diesel didnt.

I managed to modify mine so that it has both air con and power steering. I needed this as the chassis was stretched to pull a mobile laboratory and an all up weight of about 8 tons!

Power steering was fairly easy to fit using a fj45 box & a hj60 pump

These old rockets are simple,strong & easy to fix (i am starting to sound like john rooth)
