Hi all
I'm still pursuing my dream diesel Cruiser and there's a likely one
advertised in Aldershot.
Is there anyone near there on list that might be prepared to go and have
a look-see for me before I make the long journey down there?
Thanks
Pete

Thank you for the kind offer Sripad but I was hoping for a clued up 80 owner
to be handy :-(
I think I'll give it a miss and look out for one closer to home.
Thanks again.
Pete

Hi Peter,
I live in Basingstoke which is near Aldershot. I own 70 series Landcruisers
and I know about the 70 series only. If you want I can go and have a look at
it and you can talk me through your check list while I am there. Let me
know.
Thanks,
Sripad

advertised in Aldershot.
I didn't spark up at the time, as that vehicle was on my short list too,
also I'm no 80-series expert, but I do know my motors.
I went to check it out this last weekend, and its not for me.
It drives okay, a bit tappetty from cold maybe, good brakes tight steering.
Interior is nice and bright with the grey leather, and glass sunroof, but it
hasn't been looked after. There are dog hairs, the headlining is dirty where
its been used by someone with dirty hair !! Leather is cracked, but I
suspect would renovate okay. Carpets have been cleaned so much they are
faded.
Most of the body work is okay, it had been raining, so hard to tell. A bit
of rust around the keyhole on the rear hatch. But the roof is terrible,
lacquer peeling and discouloured. A replacement ariel has been fitted, and
that is buckled and silicon'd in.
Wheels needed a refurb.
Engine bay looked reasonable, but not loved.
I didn't crawl around underneath as I had no intention of parting with my
cash.
If he got =A33500 - he'd get the roof done in the sale.
Mileage showed as 04**** which I thought was strange.
I want one with a mint interior, so even if he said take it away for =A32500
I'd decline.
Also its in a builders yard, which is as bad a buying one parked in front of
a 3.5 tonne catering trailer IMHO.
Hope it helps
Andy

Thank you Andrew.
I had my doubts about it for several reasons so thanks for confirming them
for me.
It certainly looks like decent 80's are becoming a rarity.
If you see one in my neck of the woods that you want looking over then
please do let me know - I'd be happy to help out - so long as I don't want
it of course!! ;-).

We paid =A36,500 for Daisy in December. 88K miles and in generally GC. Some
minor bodywork damage, interior well used but no rips. GX manual on an R
plate
not sure if this was good value but I am very pleased with her.
