1994 Toyota Prado KZJ78
The 70 series Land Cruisers are tough and stylish rigs. This 1994 is a special truck, with a classy cabin, turbodiesel, and rugged 4x4 underpinnings. Finished in one-off Midnight Black, this truck is set off by some stylish Raguna ZZYZX wheels with new rubber, OEM rainguards, privacy tint and a polished Sorex rear receiver. The body and paint are in fine shape aside from some light dings, chips, and scuffs associated with normal use. Offered with a mere 143k verified and documented miles, this recently serviced Prado is barely broken in. As a unique daily driver, kid hauler, or weekend trail rig this KZJ78 would be ideal for any application. For those who want a practical and collectible Toyota, this Prado is it!
The cabin is spacious and laid out in a simple manner. The fitted leather seat covers steal the show and make the cabin feel much more upscale. The dash is in good shape aside from a few minor splits on the passenger side, a common issue for this model. While these cracks aren't easy to notice, we wanted to disclose them prior to the sale. Directly below is a manual climate control system that features working air conditioning and piping hot heat! A woodgrain Nardi steering wheel replaces the factory and the driver benefits from a tilt-adjustable steering column along with electric windows, door locks, and mirrors. These all work as advertised and make daily use more enjoyable. The door cards and carpet have resisted major abuse over the years and the headliner is taut and lacks any sagging. A Bluetooth capable Sony headunit upgrade plays clear audio throughout the cabin while modernizing the driving experience a bit. Privacy tint keeps the harmful rays of the sun off the soft plastics and keeps temperatures down under the summer sun.
Under the skin, the J78 is a simple but sturdy product. Powered by the 1KZ-TE, this truck is fresh off an oil and filter service. It starts up promptly thanks to a new 12v battery and idles with confidence. The 1KZ is mated to a slick-shifting automatic transmission. The Prado moves impressively for such a hefty truck and sustained highway driving is stress-free. If you encounter some snow the hubs can be locked electronically from inside the cabin and 4WD low can be selected as well. The suspension can handle the rigors of daily use and abuse and new Profender shocks were installed on all four corners by one of our trained techs while it was up on the lift. The brakes are confident, and the alloys are wrapped in new all-terrain Falkens on each corner. They look menacing and should last for tens of thousands of miles to come.
