Ozzy's Toyota HJ60

Let’s hear about all those weekend toys for the boys (and girls) boats, skis, camper trailers, motor homes, 4wheel drives OK even airplanes (again add the make and model to the title we will organise as it gets unmanageable).

Ozzy's Toyota HJ60

Postby Ozzycamperboy » Thu Apr 09, 2009 12:18 pm

Picked this up last weekend:

I lasted a whole 2 weeks without a 4x4 after my rocky dropped a valve down a cylinder and I sold the whole thing :(

Drove past this and grabbed it.

It's got:

Cargo barrier
Roof Basket
Bullbar
Sidesteps
Rear bar
Spare wheel carrier
Draws
Dual batteries
Turbo with timer
Center console
A/C, Power steer
Driving lights

And possibly more that I've forgotten. All for a tad over 4k. Paints rough, but that's about it really.

Planning on adding in the near future

UHF, rear airlocker and bigger tyres, maybe 35"s will see how I go :twisted:

Nice - What´s the milage, and are there normally many reps. on a car off this age ?

Are the 60's the best buy in the 4-5k area?

Nah, I don't generally DD on my 'play' tires.

If funds allow, I hope to eventually have a set of mild 33"s, maybe BFG muds to drive everywhere on, which should be just legal. And a set of 34-35's with something a lot more aggressive like ETs or TSLs that will get crammed in the boot, backseats and roof or trailered when I go on 4x4 trips. That's about 3k worth of rubber though, so we'll see. Probably stick with the A/Ts its got now for a while.

They are leaf front and rear. I did have my heart set on a GQ for this very reason, but to find a stock diesel one around this price range is a bit of a mission, let alone something with all the accessories already fitted.

Still surprisingly comfortable given the age, size, and simplicity. But then again, I can only compare that to my Rocky which was a real kidney buster.

This one's got 350 000 odd, which is pretty good I thought for something so old.

Reps. ? I assume you mean repairs? This one just needs a coat of paint when I get around to it, and a new spedo cable. But it really depends on each car and how its been looked after I suppose. But Toyota's have a great reputation for being 'unbreakable' and reliable.

And there's no one 4x4 that's a best buy. Depends what you want it for. I reckon it'd make a great tourer, but I've only had it for a week.

Uses between 12-15L/100 depending on where and how you drive it. So not exactly economical, but not too thirsty either.

Great thanks for your answer. I like the 60's and the Landcruiser reputation get all the way to Danmark both reliability and 4wd ability.

Yes - Reps = repairs :) It can be a little difficult to know wich words you can shorten ( from now on I stick to write the whole word and try to prevent misunderstandings).

You say there no "best buy".

If I tell that our need is a car for touring Australia, and have place for a matress in the trunk, would the 60'serie bee the best to byu in that pricerange.

Thanks
