- United States
After a few phone conversations I told a guy that I would help him sell his '76 HJ45 Pickup Truck. Photos at: http://www.collegeinternetsolutions.com/cisautoweb/dtlc/76HJ45/
Has original H inline 6 diesel engine, H41 4 speed with low first. In '76 front disk brakes were not an option in Costa Rica, so later model disks were added. I believe it has 4.11s. It supposedly starts, runs, and drives excellently which would lead me to believe the smoking problem is related to dirty injectors or a fuel filter. You'll notice some body filler, take it for what it's worth. I think the bed is OK but the cab is fairly clean. 100% legal US importation via the 25 year old rule, imported through a registered importer.
Original description follows. Located in Boston MA, I believe he's asking $9,800 OBO, email me direct for questions and contact information firstname.lastname@example.org
Rare. Just imported from Central America! 1976 Toyota Landcruiser HJ-45, with a six cylinder diesel motor. Diesel motor starts and runs well but does smoke however, I have not ran a compression test to find out what this problem may be. Four wheel drive is functioning well. The truck went through a complete makeover, including completely sanding entire body down to bare metal, and using minimal body filler where needed. Where there was rust, the area was cut out and a new piece was welded in before priming and applying
four coats of original paint color to entire truck. The chassis is very solid, with minimal surface rust under the bed which does not penetrate the frame, and the chassis # is still completely legible.
The brakes and clutch were rebuilt prior to arriving here. Front brakes have already been switched to disk brake setup, and the rear brakes remain as drum brakes.
The interior still needs some final touches such as a nice carpet set and door handles need to be changed. I do have the rear turn signal assemblies, but have not installed them yet. And it is a 12 volt system.
This vehicle arrived about a week ago, and I will provide a title and temporary registration within five business days.
