test drive

Two adults on back roads with poor pavement, around town and on the highway.  This is an excellent driver with a rebuilt turbo compressor, newer clutch and recent maintainence.  Easy to handle around town and park in tight spaces.  

Compared to a similar Land Rover Defender 110 the acceleration is similar, the torque is less pronouced but the cruising speeds are the same if not better in the Toyota.  The drive of the Toyota far exceeds the Defender in comfort, visibility and manueverability.  The interior finish and acoustics are far better in a Land Cruiser.  The LJ77 is a civilized, fully capable SUV that will never go out of style.

Conclusions

The perfect family 4×4 that is comfortable to drive and efficient, 9L/100kms or 25mpg.  Seating for eight people with a fold down third row allows for optional added cargo space or room for the dogs and the kids.  This LJ77 LX is not equipped with a sunroof nor air conditioning but has power locks and windows.

Overall, this is one of the special LCs that come available every year.  It drives like a real Toyota should, being maintained by Toyota for the life of the vehicle.  Above all, this is a gorgeous presentation with a rare color combination.
