What kind of model is this?? No airbags? 96 model?

It has a fridge, no leather, funny dashboard ???

How can you place pics of a dirty car inside and outside on a sales page ???

Be careful most of the russian or eastern LC's are stolen from Germany, France, etc. Most likely no papers.

Personally I don't like the third row seats and the design. Manual tranny, maybe.

Not very nice. :doh:

Man, we all pine for different things here. I like the completely manual ventilation system. Want to hit recirc for the bozo who just pulled in front of you blowing smoke out the tailpipe? Bam - it's on. No waiting for the motor to respond to the switch on mine.

many landcruisers were special ordered by Russians for delivery at japanese ports and then "imported" privately into russia to avoid duties. Vladivostok is just a short hop from Japan. The specs could be for anywhere in the world, but probably not for russia.

Semlin,

most of the LC 80 in Russia were special ordered by the port of Germany (thefts). Nowadays it is very hard to find a good 80 in Germany because all were stolen for eastern europe. You can't pay for insurance anymore because the LC has highest stealing rate of all cars in Germany. Long live Russia :mad:

Of course TOY sold LC 80 there but who had the money. Only very few rich businessmen. And do you think that such a businessman would order the cruiser on the pics here in this thread. I doubt it.

Could be but seriously many LC 80 were stolen for the eastern markets after the fall of the wall and sold to the russian mafia.

I don't want a car like this. How many dead bodies were carried in it?????

Thanks.

In the far east the Russians ship logs to japan from small ports and the freighters come back full of "duty free" japanese goodies. Landcruisers were a popular item in the 90's.
