Just wanted to be the first to post....any other HJ60 owners on here yet?

T = turbo

And I'll raise you both to an ARB locker
nice one John.

Welcome to all the South Africans nice to see you here
Hi everyone. My names Adam, i´m based in Malaga Spain. Currently driving a hj61 (12HT) Turbo, which i´m preparing for a 6/8 month trip round africa. Also got a 1984 Hj60 (2H) which i´ve just restored and another HJ61 in bits for spares.
You could say i´m a toyota addict. My past toyotas are LJ70, KZJ90, KZJ73. Also built a Tomcat a few years ago, G Wagon,
and a few other vehicles. Nice to see a european cruiser site. Cheers for now. Adam
Hi Adam I have two 60s for bits and I've just got a 62 not as pretty but better condition.
The 62 has a built in roof tent accessible from inside. I am looking at a turbo engine for it at the moment. Meantime it is getting a bodylift and new springs to get 35 inch Baja Claws under the arches.
Doing the usual stuff to her, stainless snorkle, front and rear winches new bumpers sliders etc.
Starting off small touring around Southern Ireland moving onto Iceland next year.
At last you've come out of the undergrowth Derek ;-)
Gonna grace us with a few photos soon?

Hi Mike you still got that 61?
My FJ62 got swapped for a HJ61... love this machine!!!
for me HJ60 1984
I have a 89 hj60 which I have restored out of pretty much 2 hj60's, have used a body of a 88 hj60 and welded it of the chassis then refitted it in the last 2 months.
Almost ready to paint it. So there will be another one on the road soon. A solid rust free example for the future!!!
Hi all.. and after over a year...I come back to see if any one has replied to my original post
Still got my 82 HJ60...cut the entire roof gutter section away in parts a while back and replaced the entire gutter from A pillar to A pillar all round...all home folded gutter...a hell of a job...also managed to catch fire to the headlining..so had to make a new one...all repsrayed...then afew months later lost my driving licence for 16 months...almost up now.
I was going to try driving over here in jersey on my Uganda driving licence...but they would not accept that...strange ...cant imagine why
