    The 96 that I recently bought is the same blue as the newer toyota cars, darkish blue with metallic reflective materials mixed in. To date I have yet to see or come across any other blue landcruisers. Are these rare or is this some sort of fluke. For what it's worth it looks pretty nice which is what caught my eye in the first place.
    Just curious if anyone knows about rare colors that toyota came out with.

    I've seen a few dark blue 80s, but there aren't too many of them.

    check out an older post from cdan on what colors were avail what years. Blue was only offered for a short period. Unfortunately they wasted a lot of 80's by painting them birdcrap white. :flipoff2:

    We had one(blue 96) for a while last summer(connie picked it up from work) it was the 1st one I had seen, now there are 3 in town, ours is now in Cali being driven by a 19 year old hottie :D

    I would think there are a few more blue 80's than black 80's........and I have only seen 1(maybe 2) black 80's. white/green/red thats 75% of what I see, not many desert dunes(love that) alot of the early 80's around here were either 2 tone(a few different versions) or white or red

    Now back on topic -

    I've got a 95 with the blue "mica" flakes but actually I like the gun-metal blue better (like Semlin has). See Junk - that's how to be nice and neighborly.

    Well, my fiance wanted an X-5 4.4i but I think I've talked her into a Landcruiser (which she had once before!)
    Now, she wants a black one so hopefully I can find one. I've seen only one black toyota (driven by a very attractive lady I might add) and the others were all Lexus models. Hopefully we can find one or else she'll probably take mine and leave me with a different color or something!

    You will find black in two different forms, all black and a version with chrome door handles and mirror heads.

    The all black was produced between 1-96 and 7-96

    The black/chrome was produced between 5-96 an 7-96

    Fairly rare color, good luck in your search.

    black with the chome(handles and mirrors) is what I have seen in town.

    I picked up a set of brand new chrome mirrors last year for $35(or something like that), was gonna paint em black but kinda grew fond of the bling bling look on my beater :)

    Beautiful Bloo. :D

    I parked next to a 97 anniversary edition at Sams in Dallas about two hours ago. Having just read this thread last night, I checked the color and noticed it was black.
    But when I came back out with sunglasses off, I realized it was deep, dark blue with metallic flecks. Really a striking color that I had never noticed before!
