1978 Toyota Landcruiser Diesel. Three liter four cylinder B series diesel engine with 4 speed transmission. Aesthetically looks great with fresh paint, has some rust underneath but overall very very solid body. Runs and drive great but has some leaks. Primary problem is transfer case seal for the front output shaft needs replaced complete seal kit is $24 from Spector offroad and is only about an hour job to do the front only. Also has slow leak from oil pan in front right corner. Not even enough to be concern between oil changes but it is there. Doors in back don't line up quite right and there is some cracking in the top where the upper hinge mounts on one side. There is the bad now the good this truck looks great and gets stares everywhere I go. It runs and drive fine. I wouldn't take it too far right now until the transfer case is sealed up but starts right up and will go anywhere. I recently drove it back from Costa Rica and have a clear Colorado Title in hand. I will be taking the highest offer by June 1st above or below asking price as I am taking off for Argentina on June 7th. Please come by take a look and make an offer. It will sale June 1st to the man with the most cash in his hand. Put a couple more dollars into this rig and have a 25k diesel original.
