Look Rolly, plenty of people on this forum drive jap cars. As a Land Rover driver I've learnt not to be too critical because they can be thin skinned.

I reckon you ought to apologise before you get flamed :-)

Roly, You dont need to apologise.

I drive a Toyota HJ47, and i also, have had a Land Rover.

As it's only on "Flee Bay", he also has another one on their, if you look at sellers other items, what he is saying is need's to sell as he is going through a divorce,.....I would take the 4by and leave if it was me.

Cheers for now...William H...Bunbury...WA.

Just be careful.
We see a lot of these coming out of the mines in WA, unsuspecting people buy them then discover what they have when the rust starts jumping out, or chasis cracks start to creak, then try to onsell them.

Car yards and privateers buy them at the auctions, trick them up (new paint, stripes & stickers, and bars) and flog them. You'd want to know it's history from day one to even consider looking at it. You could say it's one of those 'buyer beware' scenarios.

Not that one id say. Without checking the stats that looks like a pre 89 2h version so if it was going to fall apart it would have
at $6500 it would be right at the upper end of its worth anyway so i dont see a bargain there

No... this has been on plenty of times. His original wish was to sell it for $20,000+!

It's just standard troopie, not an Arkana.

Nothing very special about it. The two snorkels are not fitted!

You are not wrong Paulnmissus, there are so many landcruisers coming from the mines in WA either direct or via hire vehicle. It is hard to get a good private owned one at present. I think the same applies in Qld from what I can see.

The snorkels aren't attached to anything!!!

It's just got an old 3F motor.

He loves it, but .....

I saw a BT 50 this avo, got to check it out at the lights, dual cab diesel with twin full chrome snorkels coming out the being back seat of the wellside and pointing to the rear.

Looked like, well, looked liked he wanted a truck but settled for a dual cab ute and spent way too much on it trying to look like a truck at detriment to the tub space.

My son bought an Cruiser once from a guy who had been doing it up with fancy stuff - it had the sign across the front "WASTED MONEY". At least he knew it. He was selling it to buy something more suitable for baby on the way.

That'd have to be at least his 5th go at selling the Troopie on eBay!

His initial "Buy it Now" was I think around the $15,000 mark!

At the current price and with the gear he has it'd nearly be worth more to him to dismantle and sell as parts.
