1978 Toyota Land Cruiser Chrome edition Additional Info:

For sale a 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 we named "Naranjada" which means "Orange" in spanish. This is the diesel model that was not introduced in the States! Originally from El Canton de Naranjo en la Provincia de Alajuela in Costa Rica. My uncle and I personally hand pick the best remaining Cruisers in Costa Rica!These diesel cruisers are bullet proof. They are stronger, last forever, and do around 30mpg. Also parts are not hard to find at all, for the diesel engines where produced more world wide then gas engines. Thus getting parts for this cruisers are easily available. This vehicle is 70% restored with that said please take in mind this beauty is almost 40 years old.The paint job was redone and buffed with the original red/orange color. It has new leather upholstered seats and brand new roof liner. Mechanically this BJ40 is perfect and will crawl through any off road trail! As you can see in the pictures, it does need some minor work but I leave a little for those who want to work on something and help bring this gem to it's full glory that way the price is not over the top and still affordable. **On a side not, any orange seen on the frame or under carriage is not over spray rather just the sun reflecting the red/orange.** Unlike US models, these vehicles have history. A story of how they were used on coffee plantations to help farms with daily chores or like this specific Cruiser was passed down from generation to generation and well maintained by a family in the countryside. When you purchase one of these vehicles you continue the legacy and special care of this antique treasure.Every vehicle is sold with a framed certificate from Tuanis International Auto Imports. The certificate has the original picture of the vehicle in Costa Rica, vin/ make/ model info and the original CR registration sticker! A keepsake prove where this rare beauty is originally from!
