Well thanks for peaples advice concening which 4wd to buy and I think I have found one.

Its a HJ60 G, white, diesel, auto, twin batteries, winch, new tyres and rims and some rust for 6000

The owner wasn't sure is the auto was original or not

so my question is did the hj60 have a auto option and are they ok? are autos ok off road

I want the auto for my wife so she can drive it, one less thing for her to worry about.

And who is the best person to have a look at it to make sure that its not a bomb, RAC?

Nothing wrong with Auto's offroad.

RAC will do at a pinch, but a specialised 4by place would be a better option. They know EXACTLY what they are looking at, and what they SHOULD be looking at.

Rust in 60's is a BIG BIG problem.. If it isnt rust, theres a good chance its BOG...

Dude be caredful.. get lots of inspections done.

Definitely get it looked at by a 4X4 specialist. One idea may be to contact your local 4by club and find out where most people take their trucks for service, this should be a good indication of a reliable workshop. and like Truckster said, watch out for the rust in the HJ60.
Nothing wrong with auto offroad, only downside is not enough engine braking for downhill as a manual, but still very capable!
Just my opinion

Its got about 3k of extra goodies on it, so if it is in good nick mechanically then go for it - Although yes the older toyos do have rust problems in the roof. But then again it is an older vehicle and she is cheap. Nothing wrong with autos on the sand and beach only if you get on a steep downhill muddy track. ( i'll let truckster explain the 'pucker' factor to you :-) ) A good dedicated light commercial and fourby workshop would be the go for an inspection.Moo... everyone knows what a Jackaroo looks like :-)
