“Only 57,000 KM in this vehicle but it included some...”

Written on: 06/04/2010

Only 57,000 KM in this vehicle but it included some rough mountain camping trips and a 4 1/2 months camping trip right around Australia. Melbourne to Cape York across the top down through WA and back to Melbourne, with lots of detours along the way. Averaged about 27 MPG overall, FWD included. No problems at all. Sweet little engine. Suspension helped by good after market shockers and spring re-tempering, which was a must in those days. Sold only to buy 60 series station wagon. Owned an FJ40… Read Full Review

“4x4ing is what the Toyota Landcrusier was built for...”

Written on: 25/03/2006 by FreeRider86 (1 review written)

4x4ing is what the Toyota Landcrusier was built for and nothing but it, on road she's a nice drive, hasn't a lot of pick-up, but corners very well. Provided you don't take them too fast, as it is a tall car and whilst it still has a wide chassis, she can be a lil top heavy at times. But it takes a lot before you even start to feel the body roll. The braking is great, can't complain till the drums fill up with mud and the mud dries, but if you keep her well cleaned and looked after, then this… Read Full Review

Anniespaw's Response to FreeRider86's Review

I imported a 1980 Toyota Landcrusier BJ40 from Canada earlier this year. While not a fast vehicle, there's certainly ample amount of low-end torque available for getting out of backroad ruts. It's also a fun vehicle to drive, and it certainly turns a lot of heads while going down the road. Since owning my BJ40, I've installed rear disk brakes, new shackles, new steering dampner, tie rods, installed a swingaway tire carrier, and a several other upgrades. Currently, she's in the body shop getting the dents and rust removed and some new paint.

<br>New owners of BJ40's should assess their mechanical capabilities before investing in one of these classics. 3B engine parts, if you can find them, can be very expensive, and often not in good working order. Likewise is true for a competent diesel mechanic - most have never worked on a 3B engine. So be warned. Taking ownership in one of these fine vehicles means getting your hands dirty, and paying through the nose for parts.
<br/>
<br>See you on the road!
