1995 Land Cruiser 4.2TD
The 80 series Land Cruiser is a true swiss army knife on and off the road. A perfect blend of rugged durability and plush comfort, our 1995 Turbo Diesel cruiser would make an excellent candidate for a weekend camping rig, family hauler, or even a day to day commuter! Finished in Deep Emerald Pearl (6M1) and set off by factory rainguards, LED tail lamps, 16" Deerfield alloys and a trick OEM translucent rear spoiler, our 113k verified/documented cruiser is a fine example and shows no serious defects to note on the exterior apart from a spot of clearcoat fade on the roof. We also wanted to note a prior replacement of the left rear and front right door in Japan. Bolstered with premium build quality and one of Toyota's most sought after powerplants to date, this Cruiser is a Japanese Classic no matter which way you spin it.
The interior is clean, spacious, and overall appears to have been extremely well maintained in its prior Japanese life. The factory cloth upholstery is in terrific shape for the age, and the heated factory front seats show no major defects no note. The dash is free of any pesky cracks that typically plague Cruisers of this vintage, and the driver benefits from an SRS airbag in the wheel should your drive take a turn for the worst. We did want to note a few screw holes atop the dash from a prior navigation screen install, but that does little to take away from this cabin's appeal. Accessibility is abundant in this cockpit, all power windows work as advertised alongside power locks and even power folding mirrors. Additionally, a power moonroof can unfurl or tilt at the push of a button to funnel some more natural airflow into the cabin. The previous owner did a lot to modernize this interior, adding LED illumination where needed and installing a fully upgraded Kenwood sound system with Bluetooth functionality! The speakers sound top notch and are perfectly primed for blasting your favorite tunes on a long road trip. The factory climate control's simplistic design is easy to navigate, and cold A/C or hot heat can be primed at a moment's notice. The rear bench offers ample room for three additional passengers, and can be folded fully forward if you need to set up your sleeping bag in the rear. The headliner is taut and clean, and we're even including the factory owner's manual for the eager first stateside owner!
Under the hood, the 4.2l turbo diesel power plant is nothing to scoff at. A champion in fuel economy, reliability, and low-RPM torque, there's not much the 1HD-FT can't do, and this updated 24 valve version is plenty powerful for your on and off road excursions. This beast cranks to life care of two new 12v batteries and idles smooth and confident thanks to a fresh oil and filter service. Acceleration is plentiful, and highway cruises are easy and not too labor intensive. The automatic transmission is smooth shifting and geared comfortably for highway driving, and the selectable transfer case offers both high and low gears to quickly climb out of any less than desirable situations, and a center locking differential is at the ready for efficient propulsion. Additionally, we've rebuilt the left front hub to ensure your full time 4WD stays in good working order. The suspension is soft and composed and soaks up road imperfections with ease, whether you're on the asphalt or traversing loose surfaces and the Bridgestone tires are knee deep in tread and near silent on the road, giving you plenty of grip for the road ahead!
