Discussion in '60-Series Wagons' started by archaeology_student, Aug 25, 2006.
I was wondering what the "G" ornament/decal on the 60 series meant. Does anyone know?
I told the homeless squeegy kids it stood for "Get away from my truck".
G for Diesel.
no, not for diesel.
it is actually a trim, and indicated a certain outfitting line.
Yes, I realize G is not for diesel, I was just having fun (Sesame Street take-off).
Can you elaborate on the trim package as my 1983 BJ60 had the G as well as my friends 1985 BJ60.
After asking around, it turns out that all Canadian spec Diesels had the G on them.
I think it is a luxury trim package, and the north american B and H 60s all got it-chrome thingies, light dimmers, inside lights, and stuff.
you can find central american HJ60 series without the G, they are truly basic. front benches, no dash light dimmers, no rpm indicator, no dome light...
But I do not know the exact details.
Mine has it!! and I always wondered what does that G means. I've seen a few 60's here on Venezuela with the same G to, I think that here in my country the few 60's i've seen with the G are from years '82 to 84' and is not that comun to see 60's from that years specially '82-83, but from 85 to 92 is pretty comun to see 60's all the time.
So someone in here that knows what does the G means?
This pic show the G in my fender during m y SO process.
The letter " G " in Land Cruiser means a level of ewuipment .. as you see GX or VX or GX in other models ..
G is the first over basic level in 6* series the top are the GX in our Diesel world asosiated to 12H-T engine in 61 or 62 series ..
One of my fellow employees keeps saying the "G" stands for gutless!
Tapage, you should post more of your pics from your conversion, if they're not on here already!?
Look at your VIN it should read (if it's a gasser) JT3FJ60GXC#######, or something similar. The GX is the trim/option level.
GX is the top level of options (so I have been told)
In one of the Land Cruiser FAQ's I see numerous places on the net, it says the "G" stands for "Gran Tourismo".
My Central American spec HJ60 has the G on it.
I found the badges dont necessarily follow rhyme or reason. Its possible to find the highest and lowest spec 60/61/62 without badges.
Looking through my files I found 3 61/62 series without badges as well as this entry spec 60.
In australia, the G stands for girly pack (g-pac) as it indicates the truck has all the pussy features.
G pack has the cloth seats and panels, aswell as the push button 4x4, aircon (wich is an option on the base model), rear tailgate (barn/ambulance type doors on base model).
Also the g pack included a vacuum booster on the clutch
This is australia of course, so the us standards may have differed. But I do believe the US didn't get many if any base models, as the creature comforts were in much more demand (in australia, governements mostly buy the base models)
Yes .. already .. from 2004 ..
US gassers have a vent there(that's where the carb fan pulls its outside air from)

...why, Snoop Dog named it of course... ..."aint notin' but a "G" thang baby..." For the badest Cruiser!
Fo shizle that nizle yo'!
Now I feel slighted for not getting a "G" on my fender. Bad carb fan vent! Sniff.
Don't all the cool trucks have a 'G' spot?
Mine has a G - but by the time I got it, it certainly wasn't a luxury vehicle. I guess it did originally have AC though. I have always thought that some markets didn't badge their cars with a G as I have definitley seen 61s/62s with power windows/sunroof/AC/etc.. w/o the G.
I like my G. Way cooler than the vent that the US cruisers got.\
Yep, trim level. One step up. Not nescessarily A/C or push button 4HI but tilt, dimmers, chrome, int. wiper, cloth, buckets, center console. Not really lux compared to your base model Kia these days but a step up from the truly utilitarian base model of the early 60 series. I tell people it stands for "grunt".
I thought it stood for "gangsta"!
