Its a sale I know I'll regret but I'm selling my 60 to fund a couple of business ventures I've started.
Unfortunately I just don't have the time available to drive it anymore and need the cash rather than the vehicle at the moment.
I bought it from a forum member Mark, who did a huge amount of welding to get it where it is, he'd bought the car from Andy on here and went all over Europe in it.
I spent some time sorting the mechanicals and bought a turbo conversion from Andy which has given it a small but very appreciable shot of power even without increasing the fuelling.
The 4 core radiator and oil cooler handle the extra heat and it runs well, it sounds great through the stainless exhaust. The seals blew on the turbo so I've just fitted a reconditioned unit.
Its been dry stored during my ownership.
I'd prefer the 60 stays within the club so I'll hold off advertising elsewhere for a week or two but here's the blurb I'd written and some pics.
I'm after £4000.
Cheers

1989 Landcruiser HJ60 4.0 manual
200k miles
MOT till 6th December
5 previous owners
Turbo conversion including oil cooler.
Turbo recently replaced with reconditioned unit.
Stainless 2.5" exhaust
Radiator re-cored with a quality 4 row unit.
Front winch bumper
Rear towing bar and rear bumper
Electric windows and central locking
Snorkel
All suspension items have been replaced in the last few years and in good condition, lifted leaf springs, Koni front shocks and DeCarbon rear, OME steering damper.
I renewed all the fluids, filters and belts 2 years / 2K miles ago and did another oil service more recently.
33" Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tyres on 15" steels and as new 33" spare.
It needed some welding to the sills and bulkhead to get through the last 2 MOT's.
The chassis is in good condition for the age, the body varies from fair to poor condition, it isn't going to win any show'n'shine competitions and there are numerous areas of rust and holes!
Everything works except for the stereo, the rear heater is disconnected.
Heavy duty roof rack included but not currently fitted.
A decent number of spares included including a front axle, the parts to revert back to naturally aspirated if needed, a set of 16" wheels and tyres and other bits

Cheers Higgy, I know nothing about bikes but that one looks awesome for some retro touring or blasting down neon soaked Tokyo streets!
I'll probably advertise elsewhere at the weekend, from past experience most people looking to buy a 'classic' don't like modifications so maybe I'll have to put it back to standard...

I think I saw that on Andy’s ramp just before it sold. I hope you find a buyer soon.

I'd sell it as it is with original parts included.

That was the one that John ( Hemi) had off me Jacob, when I was running it. I sold Wills to Mark must have been 3-4 years ago.

Thanks All, its now on ebay so fingers crossed there's some interest on there. I doubt it'll be the last Landcruiser i'll own, would still be keen for a commercial 90 or 120 if I could ever find one...

Good luck with the sale Will, it was nice meeting you that day. Hopefully someone buys it and joins the forum.
Its a funny time to be selling niche stuff at the moment, some things which one would expect to sell take an age to move, trade in my world is only steady, the transport job is patchy, take away food wholesaling is not buoyant, I think there is a lot of uncertainty about Brexit and its repercussions.

I should try it on "Car and Classic" website. Apart from the 2 Collies I recently sold everything else has sold on that website. Its free and seems to get a good following.

If I hadn't tied up my little savings account against a home improvement loan I'd have that 60 in a heartbeat.

If you're after a commercial 90 or 120 then there are hundreds of them in Ireland. Happy to check one out for you at any stage of you're interested.

Start here. Plenty of rough ones but a few diamonds in there too.

I've had lots of interest Higgy, one viewing, tonnes of people asking for my number who then don't call... plus the usual ridiculous offers in pidgin English!

It was great to meet you too Andy, you were on your way to Lincolm if I remember, shame I couldn't make it there this year.
I tried adding it to car and classic and they deleted the Ad so I left it, had good experience there before though.

And cheers Bob I'll keep my eyes peeled over here for now, good to see yours is still going at 330k!

It might be that they don't like/ allow items that are on Ebay to be listed?? I tried the things on C+C first, as it was free, Ebay and its charges are a last resort.
