There were 12 Toyota Landcruiser BJ43 with a factory vented hard top and second side mirror top that were built.
11 of them stayed in Japan for military personnel.
ONLY ONE was imported to Europe .... that's the one.
Obviously, the ONLY ONE in the USA.
17985 ORIGINAL Miles (28945 Kms) and driving it.
GARAGED - NO RUST
This is my personal vehicle, from my collection and have used it in Europe.
I imported the car and went through the tedious and complicated work of making the car US legal, so you won't have to do it and got it registered in the USA, meaning I have a clean and clear Title on hand under my name and made it legal in all 50 States .
I have already imported some of my cars from my personal collection and they were sold within few days.
ALL my cars have very low original miles, mostly with documentations, mostly with their original books and kept in meticulous condition.
Since my last sale here on Ebay, I have had lots of inquiries for the upcoming cars.
Collectors, enthusiastic persons are waiting to put their hands on my very rare cars.
Their value are increasing and as of today, there is NOT an other car like this one in the US.
It's a very rare car in Europe and unique in the US.
It features factory vented Hard Top and original mechanical winch, factory bush guard, 2nd passenger mirror, factory jump seats, factory radio.
None like this one around. No chances to see an other one. Your chance to own it.
Disclaimer: Ebay does not recognize the 4 digit VIN for this European car. As shown on the Title and stamped on the chassis, the number is BJ43002300.
This Toyota is a BJ 43. B standing for the Diesel type of vehicle, 4 cylinders inline and a very rare Diesel Toyota motor, and 43 stand for the length of the chassis. This is a medium chassis.
Gear box is a 4 speed, shifts like new.
The car drove 17985 Miles since new (28945 Kms) and counting, have all documents, has been serviced and kept in a heated garage at home when not in use.
The body has been fully restored and the under carriage freshen up.
There is absolutely NO rust on the chassis and the frame. The original chassis was RUST FREE when the restoration was started. NO blistering paint or bubble of any kind, NO rock chips because the car stayed garaged its entire life and pampered. Actually, there is even NOT a single scratch on the paint.
Interior is also original with no stains, no tears, no smell.
Dashboard is impeccable, complete as of day one and include the original radio.
Seats are perfect, adjustable. There is the factory rear jump seats which are a rare feature.
Window seal, rubbers are like new with no cracks and there is NO leaks.
Motor is original and pulls strong, has lots of torque, does NOT smoke and fires up easily. Injectors were checked, fuel pump checked, glow plug checked, oil change few days ago.
It's an original Toyota Diesel, 4 cylinders, and is ALL ORIGINAL.
The original bottle jack is also included and from factory.
This Landcruiser has never done any muddy off-road but has been driven on the road instead.
I will include the original handbook from Toyota seen in the photos.
NOTE:
This Toyota is legally imported in the USA, comes with a Florida State Title under my name and is exempted from smog check as it is a vehicle over 25 years old and some states, will register it as a collectible vehicle.
I went through the tedious and the very complicated work of making the car US legal, so you won't have to do it and got it is registered in the USA, meaning I have a clean and clear Title on hand and under my name.
It has a speedometer in kilometers, inspected, approved by Florida Highway Patrol, Florida DMV and legal.
This car has been through several inspection at Custom Border Patrol (CBP), Agricultural Inspection, EPA, DOT, Highway Safety Inspection, DMV Inspection and passed all of them with flying colors.
Thank You and happy bidding
