Hello Gary thank you for reply, i think it would be a struggle to find a better one, and having the detailed history to look back on is
something pretty special.
I am sure it will go well before it works down the list of people interested.
I am only fairly local in Middlesbrough so its been good seeing all the pics of the runs out you have done on routes close to home.
Wishing you nice weather for May for the coast to coast.

So I'll post it here on the 80 thread for now but it has a replacement!!! Picking it up next weekend.
Earlier then planned but it's the right money, 42k miles invincible X.

Still got the coast to coast in May in the 80 then a few bits to remove to sell...

Where's the fun in that!

I wanted the later one tbh, this is a 66 reg, auto, leather, full dealer history and just been serviced so a years toyota warranty.

I'd looked at some newer ones but the undersides were future nightmares! Some had little or no service history too. This was cheaper and the only compromise is the the canopy.

Plans for this are subtle (every new 4x4 I've had got more subtle every time)
Hidden winch, sliders and decent bash plates, slightly bigger tyres, the back will get fitted out but so i have usable space day to day.
Canopy will get changed to a gullwing variety too.

I could keep the 80 aswell but it's space and it'd get used even less, sell for a reasonable price and let someone else enjoy it.

Are they actually bigger than the 80 ? some muppet who couldn't drive one had me reverse my wider than average 80 about 100 yards up a traffic crowded hill the other day because he was obviously scared to try and fit in the gap between parked cars right in front of him ,I'd have gone in there if he had dropped back a bit before a queue formed behind him :angry-screaming:

Longer, but not wider, Shayne. I don't notice much difference in width driving one or the other around the back lanes here.

All being well I'll be picking it up Saturday, I'll get some decent pics and get some next to the 80 too.

Little mileage update on the 80, been trying to keep the miles down and it's done 1000 miles since the end of November! I've nearly done that in the Hilux in a month.
