VEHICLE History

Toyota Land Cruiser BJ73 LX offered for sale and worldwide export by the original owner from the Canary Islands Spain.  The 3.5L “3B” naturally aspirated 4 cylinder diesel motor was made in Japan and is mated to a 5 speed manual transmission with two speed transfer case.  Always storage inside a garage.  A mere 146k kms from new, which are documented.  The grey metallic paint is original from the factory and paired with a FRP top painted white.  The interior is original in grey cloth and has been covered since new.  A well preserved example of a work horse Land Cruiser.

exterior

The Toyota Land Cruiser BJ73 LX wears its original factory grey metallic paint and graphic decals.  The paint and decals are in good condition, and the vehicle has spent its life inside a garage its whole life.  There are some areas of oxidation, one on the rear door and another on the sliding rear window frames.  Some scratches affect the paint.  The vehicle has never been in an accident.

The chrome 15 inch wheels wear Bridgestone 31 x 10.5 R15 tires in the front and NEXEN 31 x 10.5 R15 tires in the rear.  The wheel arches show wear and the mud flaps do, as well.  The fiber reinforced plastic FRP top is in okay condition and has never been removed from the vehicle.  There is an area near the front driver door on the FRP top showing repair work.  The chrome bumpers are in good condition.

Overall, the body and paint are in good condition with minimal wear and tear for its age and class of vehicle.

test drive

Three adults on paved roads around town and on the highway.  This is an excellent driver with strong motor and smooth shifting gears.  The suspension and handling were affected by under inflated tires.  This BJ73 is very attractive and fun to drive.  Acceleration is good and the brakes work properly.
