I know its an ANCIENT 4X4, but what are the pros and cons of a 60 series petrol ran manual Landcruiser ?

Thanx :?

Depends if its still got the original motor then lack of power.

If its for a project then its an awesome platfrom to build off

Thirsty if its a petty. And depending on k's and if its been rebuilt or not, I'd be a bit concerned about the longevity of the engine.

Rust is a big problem in 60's too, well all yota's :lol: . But particularly around the roof and frames. Actually, look for it just about everywhere.

I'm guessing you've seen one that you like/want and its petrol? Or is there a reason you don't want a diesel?

Clint has just gotten a job at 'OUT OF TOWN 4X4' and is a bit of a distance away.
He has an old V8 dodge thing and he wants to get rid of it now and get something more reasonable.... AT LEAST SOMETHING THAT CAN BE FITTED WITH A BABY SEAT :$
Some guy wants to swap him the Dodge for his 60 series.

I would say if he gets it, he will be playing with it :lol: I just hope this time its something reliable :shock:

My opinion with swaps, is that if someone offers YOU a swap, they must be thinking it'd be a good trade for them. So I'd be lookin very carefully. But thats probly just my paranoia :lol:

But I think the most important thing in your last post was YOUR HUSBAND WORKS AT A 4X4 STORE!!!! ::()

Can he get us discounted stuff!!? :armsup :mrgreen:

Yeah ... get an 80 series ... they are the stalwarts in the Cruisers.

I had a petrol one and got it converted to gas, blew up one motor and got given another so bolted it up and it ran really well too well sometimes I could fry 35's on bitumen in second gear :armsup

They are generally very tough vehicles but they do rust bad, if you have any questions I have owned 5 of these now and have rebuilt everything on them at one stage so just post up.

And about time!

Now all you need to do is come up to Hervey Bay and buy a great CT that's going cheap ... you get a great holiday out of it and a great camper too!
