1993 Toyota LC VX Limited 80
The 80 series Toyota Land Cruiser needs no introduction and is arguably better than most SUVs built today. This VX Limited comes nicely equipped from Toyota and is hard to believe the bells and whistles that were offered in a 90s SUV. The rugged body-on-frame design is robust and reliable able conquer all terrains all while keeping you comfortable in the cabin. Finished in a stunning one-off super black, the body is in great shape aside from a few scratches, chips, and scuffs from normal road use. A few tasteful add-ons such as OEM rain guards, LED taillights, an aftermarket exhaust system, and 16" Alloy wheels wrapped in beefy new Falken all-terrain tires are outfitted on the exterior. The mileage is unverified and as such this vehicle is being sold with unknown miles. Nicely equipped and fresh off of a recent service, this 80 series is turn-key and ready for the next adventurer!
The cabin is spacious and comfortably seats 5 passengers. The leg and headroom are more than enough with plenty of cargo space to spare for your belongings. The dash is in good nick and shows no cracking and bubbling, and the door cards do not show any rips and tears. This VX limited is nicely equipped for an off-road rig and is outfitted with heaps of amenities that you wouldn't traditionally see in a 90s SUV. The cruise control works great allowing you to set the desired speed and relax. The power windows and the power locks are fully operable. Although the power folding mirror feature is no longer operable, the mirror adjustability operates as expected. You can still manually fold the mirrors in for tight parking to prevent any scratches. The OEM coolbox will keep your drinks cool on your trips, and the passengers benefit from an electric sunroof with a wind visor for additional sunshine and a fresh breeze. The seats are fitted in Clazzio black leather seat covers and lack any rips and tears, and the front seats are also heated to keep you warm in the winter. The previous owner ditched the OEM radio and upgraded it to an Alpine headunit for your audio needs. The automatic climate control is a nice perk and blows cold A/C on-demand and scorching heat just in time for the upcoming winter. The headliner is intact and does not sag or show any major stains. The carpet has also held up well and is in great shape. The rear seats split 60/40 and also collapse to create more storage space when you need it. Overall a very well-kept and tidy interior.
The machinery underneath the bonnet is the infamous 1HD-T 4.2L inline 6 cylinder turbo diesel engine. This engine offers enough torque and horsepower to drive this 80 series with ease and is known for its reliability. Two brand new 12v batteries were installed and with a quick twist of the key the engine fires up immediately. Mated up to the turbo diesel engine is a 4-speed automatic transmission, providing seamless shifts for an enjoyable driving experience. The acceleration is linear and happily accelerates up to highway speeds without breaking a sweat. The suspension absorbs the bumps on the road and drives great whether you prefer on or off-road, thanks to the new front struts our trained technicians installed. The brakes are confident and slow the rig down easily, and the new 34" Falken tires are quieter than expected on the pavement. Toyota designed the Land Cruiser to take on rugged terrain and has equipped the driveline with all of the tools to do so. This Land Cruiser comes with the standard center locking differential, and the optional and hard to find front and rear axle lockers to send power to all four corners at the same wheel speed to get you even the most difficult terrain. The 4wd is selectable from high to low as well. Other maintenance bits we performed here at the dealership include all new serpentine belts and a fresh oil and filter service. Although the miles are unverified, this 80 series drives like a dream and is ready for your next adventure!
