Hi
I'm looking for a TLC to modify and use in N and E africa. Would prefer an
80 or 100 series, probably manual and certainly diesel. Used to live in
Kenya many moons ago and enjoyed the ability to go almost anywhere. Africa
is in the blood.
I know you probably get a few of these postings but just in case the right
vehicle is out there...
I am of course trawling through the usual sources and have missed a couple
of cars because of work.
Thanks
Jeremy

Hi Jeremy,
Welcome aboard.
I don't think you will find one from the list - none of want to sell ours,
however we can help in a number of other ways.
We have a number of very keen Overlanders on the list who are always keen to
impart advice on kit and suppliers - most of the them have 80 series.
Where are you? If there is a vehicle the other side of the country from you
I am sure someone would be willing to take a look at it for you.
Where where you living in Kenya?

There is a Jap import Turbo Diesel on an L plate on a garage forecourt
Here in Portsmouth for =A38999 (you'd most probably get for =A38000, its
been there a good few weeks). Looks in v good condition.

To the guy who wants an 80, Where are you based? we have at least two Jap Import centres in Bristol, one is down the road from me and one in Bedminster at the opposite of Bristol - the one in Bedminster has quite an active LC following and often have hi-lux (surf) and on occasions 80s and sometime 100s in - I can make enquiries for you if you like? to any of these garages

Thanks for this Julian.
Used to live in Nairobi, Solai valley and some of the time on the coast of
kenya...
I live in n9orth London, Finsbury park. But happy to go get a vehicle from
anywhere...
A couple of others from the site have told me of cars for sale they've seen.
To be honest I wasn't expecting one to come from contacting you all, but
this is a valuable source of experience and knowledge.

Hi Jeremy,
My mother was brought up there and she still has a sister near Watamu (runs
a snake park) - one day I will get around to paying her a visit!
Fair enough - your best bet is to work out your budget and spec and then
post it to the list. Most people here prefer to stick to 80 series,
avoiding the cost and also Independent Front Suspension on the 100 series.
If you have the budget, try to go for a 95-97 80 series with the 24valve
diesel engine (1HD-FT) - reasonable examples could be picked up for around
10-12k for the VX (luxury spec) or go for a GX with cloth seats for 8-10k.
All the UK vehicles of that age would have manual boxes. A lot of people go
for Jap imports because they can be cheaper, however factory fitted front
and rear diff locks will be hard to find on them - they are pretty well
standard on the UK spec models.
You will find plenty of that here.
