All --

I have for sale a 2001 Toyota BXD-10 Mega Cruiser Landcruiser, Vin BXD100002694. This vehicle comes with a four speed automatic transmission with overdrive. This vehicle has a current registration / inspection in PA. This is an ex-Japanese Self-Defense Force vehicle with just 42,600 miles. The Toyota BXD-10 Mega Cruiser Landcruiser has the 4.1L 15B-FTE Toyota turbo-diesel engine, the workhorse engine of the Toyota Coaster bus line. The 4.1L 15B-FTE is a 4 cylinder, sixteen valve, OHV, electronic direct injection, intercooled turbo-diesel engine. Unlike its US "equivalent," the 15B does not suffer from reliability issues. Moreover, most maintenance parts for the 15B are readily available here in the US and the engine gets 14+ MPG. You can find a more complete history of the BXD-10 here:


Compared to it's closest competitor -- the M998 HMMWV "Humvee":

• The Mega Cruiser is lighter
• The Mega Cruiser has better ground clearance
• The Mega Cruiser (like the HMMWV) has Portal Axles – which puts it in very rare company
• The Mega Cruiser has 4-Wheel Steering and an AMAZING turning radius
• The Mega Cruiser has Limited Slip Differential
• The Mega Cruiser has Front, Center and Rear Locking Differential
• The Mega Cruiser has inboard ventilated disk brakes and an exhaust brake
• The Mega Cruiser has Onboard Air and an automatic (inflate / deflate) Central Tire Pressure System
• The Mega Cruiser has Trailer Air Lines

At the end of the day, the Toyota BXD-10 Mega Cruiser Landcruiser has been around since 1951 and is know for its extreme reliability. There is no other vehicle like the BXD-10. Less than 150 were originally sold to the public, so you will be in extremely rare company.

This particular example was stripped down to bare metal and all body work -- metal replacement where necessary (w/no bondo) and dent removal -- was completed at a local body shop. The vehicle was repainted Toyota Calvary Blue. While not perfect, the results are very good. This vehicle comes with its original rear bench seats, rear doors and full-cover canopy hardware (it is a troop-carrier) and a new custom 1/2 top that makes it look more like a very large pickup than a troop carrier. All mechanicals are in working order and up to specifications. We have fitted custom 17" rims -- made from the original rims -- to replace 17.5" that came with the vehicle, as tires for 17.5" rims are impossible to come by. The vehicle comes with a new set of 37 x 12.5 x R17 Yokohama Geolander M/Ts.

A few things to remember:

• This vehicle is not / not eligible for registration in CA, as it would be too difficult / prohibitively expensive to retrofit the engine to meet California smog regulations.
• This vehicle is not for the faint of heart, as it will literally climb a wall.
• This vehicle is for someone that wants to go anywhere!
• I doubt that you could take this vehicle to your local Toyota dealer for work, so most buyers should expect to be able to do a lot of their own work -- or have a mechanic on standby.
• Parts for the Mega Cruiser are available at shops like: Genuine Mega Cruiser BXD20V OEM parts supplied from Japan - Nengun Performance

I will be posting pictures shortly. Please call with any questions.

$29,500.
