Apart from Olive, I have always had one other ultimate dream car that had eluded me .... but sometimes you just get lucky.This one had been sitting "under my nose" for 11 years without me having the faintest idea .
The vehicle has an interesting history for a June 1999 HZJ 75 RV but I will first let the pics tell some of the story ...

Very nice! I need to spruce up the interior of ours and I like your cargo rails. And the speaker install in the rear is sweet! Are those 6x9s? Any detail pics of those?

Since I'm a woodworker, I plan on using 1.5mm wenge (very hard wood) veneer instead of diamond plate and with doors on storage nooks.

Mate, I am no great fan of diamond plate either but I bought the car like that 2 days ago so time has not been on my side.I am sure that those speakers will not last there for much longer. The side panels may remain for reasons of practicallity.

Thanks guys.The basic idea is to turn him into a designated over lander for 2 people.


The extra items including in the sale, were delivered yesterday ...
This one I have no use for so it will be for sale as soon as I have some idea of what it is worth

This one is a custom Hanibal and will stay - the looong HLJ, worklight and Hanibal awning being a further bonus.The Hanibal awning will also be sold.

I eventually opened this bag

and to my surprise found it even contained the original OEM Canvas Toolkit bag with tools and jack :cool:

We were scheduled to go camping at Koningskop this weekend and it took zero time for the kids to seize the Troopy as their mode transport - the only mildly entertaining part was watching who would win the rather fiercely contested battle, to be the designated driver
