TOYOTA LAND CRUISER VDJ78
Our claim is that this is the most practical compact touring Land Cruiser yet built by anyone, anywhere. It's designed and developed by Andrew, through actual real overland expeditions. Nothing on these trucks hasn't been personally tested.
Based on the Toyota Land Cruiser VDJ78 4,5V8 turbo-diesel Troopcarrier, we build these in Western Australia for customers all over the world, as well as here in Aus.
Prices begin at around AU$130 000 topping out at about $200 000.
To get an idea of what these vehicles can be equipped with, below is a list of optional accessories.
To chat to Andrew about him building one of these for you, please read here.
We are taking orders. Toyota can almost always find a white one in a few weeks. But with any other colour, (biegh and blue) the wait is normally about 90 days. Our work takes four months or more. Some items are shipped from overseas, and so timings can be difficult to determine, particularly with COVID-19 restrictions.
