1994 Toyota VXL 80 Series
Available for: $22,495
There are plenty of reasons why Toyota's Land Cruiser remains the brand's flagship SUV today. A rugged, relentless body-on-frame design, with reliability to back it up keeps this 80 series Land Cruiser up to par even by today's standards. This 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser VX Limited is finished in a stunning Black Metallic and Topaz Metallic two-tone (2AG) and the body is in great shape aside from a few minor rock chips and scuffs typical of normal use. This relentless rig sports a mere 144k verified and documented miles and has been well maintained. Although Toyota over-engineered these for off-road capabilities, it was marketed to the average consumer to haul the family and makes for a great commuter. Aside from the OEM rainguards and the rear ladder for easy roof access, the exterior design remains the same as Toyota intended. A great contender to tackle your daily trips to Lowes or as a perfect weekend overlanding rig!
Spacious is an understatement when you step inside the cabin. Well equipped with heaps of amenities, this Land Cruiser ensures a comfortable ride whether it's long-distance or around town. The leg and headroom are plentiful even when you pack 5 passengers for the ride. Toyota picked a two-tone gray cloth interior for the seats and are soft to the touch. The door cards are clean and free of any rips or tears and have been well cared for by the previous owner. Below your feet, the carpet is intact and shows no major stains or rips throughout the cab, and the headliner shows no sagging or stains to note. The driver benefits from a tilt steering column adjustment and cruise control for highway driving. The stock audio was ditched for a Panasonic double din but unfortunately is unresponsive and will need to be replaced. The A/C blows cold and the heat is ready for the cooler seasons to come, and is also accompanied by an automatic climate control so you can set the temperature and go. This VX limited offers a sunroof that tilts and retracts, allowing some fresh air for everyone to enjoy. A field monitoring system is right below the sunroof controls, delivering more accurate readings when you are on the road less traveled. This rig comes with power windows, locks, mirror adjustments, and a power-folding option for tight parking all of which operate properly.
North America never received the 1HD-T turbo diesel, but don't let that hinder you from ownership as it's one of the most desirable (not to mention reliable) Land Cruiser engines among enthusiasts for good reason. This 4.2L turbo diesel is bulletproof and easy to maintain. With the assistance of 2 new 12v batteries, this engine fires right up with a simple turn of the key. The engine breathes easy with a brand new engine air filter and a new axle back exhaust to ensure the engine receives the proper airflow. Combined with a smooth shifting automatic transmission, sitting in traffic is hassle free and geared properly for our American highways. The MPG can be rather forgiving depending on your driving habits with this diesel engine too. The brakes are confident to bring this rig to a halt, and the steering is light for easy maneuvering behind the wheel. This 4WD VX limited is also equiped with an electronically locking center differential in case you find yourself in tough terrain. A brand new set of Falken Rubitrek all terrains do most of the work with traction and inspire confidence both on and off road. Fresh off a recent oil and filter service this 80 Series Land Cruiser is ready for its next adventure with you!
