Successor to the legendary J40, the J70 introduced in 1984 was available in several body styles. The 70 Series was designed to retain the off-road capabilities and durability associated with the iconic 40 Series. The 1996 model was last in this series and features many cosmetic and feature upgrades.  This one is the 2-door, short wheelbase model with right hand drive.  Sold in many markets worldwide, the J70 was never available in the US.

A legend around the world, this compact true-off roader is in incredible condition.  Outside, inside and under the skirts overall condition is almost like new.

Clean, classic styling features stout chrome bumpers, a removable soft top over front and rear compartments, and ample ground clearance.  The interior features durable vinyl upholstery and rugged rubber mats, ready for the back country. 

A 5-speed manual gearbox is controlled via a sturdy shift lever and AWD Hi or Lo range is engaged via another handy lever.

The 1HZ Toyota Land Cruiser 4.2 litre (4164 cc) diesel inline 6-cylinder 12-valve OHC (overhead camshaft) is of the IDI or indirect injection design, and delivers maximum power of 96 kW (129 hp) at 3800 rpm and maximum torque of 285 N⋅m (210 lbf⋅ft) at 2200 rpm.

The short wheelbase chassis features live axles and leaf springs on both ends.

The Land Cruiser J70 has a global reputation for durability and off-road capability. 

Here in the USA it is simply the coolest alternative to a Jeep Wrangler.
