The Toyota Land Cruiser represents all of the best attributes of the modern SUV, and none of the watered-down fluff most manufacturers are offering nowadays. The 80 series Land Cruisers were engineered with quality in mind. From the unstoppable 4.5L I-6 power plant and proven off-road capability to the spacious and luxurious interior these rigs are legendary. This 1995 model has plenty of room for the whole family, and a 4WD system capable enough to transport them over the most treacherous terrain. Upgraded with a small lift, custom Space Grey exterior, and oversized tires it looks mean and has the stones to back it up. While originally leaving the factory in Dark Green it underwent a full-color swap at some point in time in Japan. The swap was well done, with the only signs of the original color are under the hood. The respray is good quality and only shows minor imperfections and wear such as rock chips and minor scuffs from normal use. The body is in great shape as well showing no major damage and just the typical trim wear from age. In keeping with its off-road roots, the 80 is rolling on some beefy 33” Falken all terrains wrapped around a set of aftermarket alloy wheels. Completing the look is a rare and desirable Ganador stainless dual exit catback exhaust.
The VX Limited was the highest trim level offered by Toyota at the time. Since these were the highest trim level it wasn’t uncommon for people to order them for the accessories like the center console cool box and rear climate control, then pull the back seats for the extra space. While this one does not include the third-row seat, it can easily be reinstalled if you find a used one locally. The seats have been fitted with a quality set of leather seat covers to both spruce up the interior as well as to protect the seats below. The covers are in outstanding condition and are likely the best fitting covers you'll find. The seats feel to be in great shape below the covers, however, we have not removed them to see if there were any stains to note. We can say that the door cards and carpets have little issues if any, as the old owners obviously cared for this truck. The headliner does have several mounting holes from an old flip-down tv screen that has long been removed but otherwise, in good nick. The front passengers have most of the luxuries including wood trim automatic climate control and full power accessories. The steering wheels show the heaviest wear which is visible in the photos. Of course, you've still got all of the typical amenities of the era like power windows, a powered sunroof, cruise control, power mirrors, and locks. The climate control system has controls for both the front and rear occupants and is ready for the waning bits of the summer heat. For the days when you'd rather roll with the windows down, it has the factory rain guards fitted which help to cut down on wind buffeting and can allow you to vent the cabin even in the rain.
Underneath the massive hood is Toyota's tried and true 1FZ-FE 4.5L gas engine. These naturally aspirated straight-six engines are known for being nearly bulletproof. The beauty of this engine choice is the fact that it was used here stateside, which means that any Toyota mechanic can work on it. If you were to find yourself in a bind out on the road your nearest Toyota dealer could even take care of any issues for you. Being nearly all stock with a mere 147K verified miles means you likely have little to worry about. The beefy straight-six provides usable power on the highway and more than enough torque to get you out of any off-road adventure you may encounter, even if it is just a run to the market during the first snowstorm of the year. The 4.5L is quick to turn over and its upgraded catback exhaust offers a deeper tone without driving you crazy when cruising on the interstate. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly up and down the gears, and neither clunks or hesitates during routine use. This one is a K295 truck which means it's fitted with the front and rear LSD and center differential to aid the four-wheel-drive system if you're in a pinch. The power-assisted steering is surprisingly easy to articulate and lighter than you would expect while the brakes do an impressive job of slowing down this heavy rig. As a practical, unique, and capable SUV, the 80 Series Land Cruiser is tough to beat. Our trained technicians have also performed all needed maintenance including a brand new battery, 4 new tires, a new alternator, new serpentine belts, a new radiator, and a fresh oil and filter change to make this Land Cruiser turn key and ready to roll. The gold standard of SUVs, these Land Cruisers provide unbeatable value. US versions regularly sell for similar money in worse conditions with triple the miles, so why not make the move to a proper right-hand drive?
