My friend and I traveled to Germany in the summer of 2014 to go to the Abenteuer & Allrad Off-Road Expo. We arrived a few days early and decided to drive around Germany and The Netherlands to look for Land Cruisers. We found many nice examples over there and ended up importing 3 very nice ones: this green soft-top BJ42 for me and two others for friends.

This BJ42 was well cared for by the previous owner in The Netherlands; it was kept in his garage under a cover.

Since getting it home here in Texas, I have driven the Cruiser only about 250 miles, and it has been garaged as well. I have taken the full soft cover off and just keep the bikini top on.

Buyer is responsible for local pickup or shipping, but I can help to arrange the shipping if you need help.

I will accept cash in person, and check or money order (has to clear the bank before taking vehicle). I require a $500 deposit within 48 hours from close of sale.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have.

Thank you for looking!
