This just popped up on Craigslist. The seller is just 1 mile from my home, if anybody a potential buyer wants me to go scope it out. The owner may be a member here, I dunno. If so I apologize if this is a repost. I know Series 80s pretty well and currently drive a 200. This is a 1 owner truck and he claims to have owned ten Land Cruisers.

1995 Toyota Land Cruiser - cars & trucks - by owner - vehicle...

I actually like it a lot but would not want to keep that sweet interior clean.... I would want to really look closely at the fabrication. But I expect that it has been done well.

Looks like something a Resort Hotel in the Caribbean, Thailand, Hawaii, --- might use to transport tourists to/from the airport.

Go take a look, ask the seller why the convertible conversion, was it in
an accident, roll-over?? Ask about the paint job, details as to where was it done (what shop painted it), cost for the paint job alone (cheaper paint is cheap), any bondo on the body, how they filled in the fender flare holes, how they extended the lift gate,---. I would also ask him if the soft top is waterproof at 70mph in a driving rain.

Would be great if you could take and post up some photos showing the modificiations to the lift gate (carpet removed) and how the soft top attaches to the body. Maybe a little video. Interesting conversion but not all that practical.

I wonder if this was a pet project and then he ran out of money or interest.
It's got new leather for all the seats including the console cover but still has the original steering wheel (leather)??

Sorry, I am not going to go pester the man except for somebody who has a real interest in buying it. All of those questions can easily be answered by directly contacting the seller.

The only reason I even offered to go is, he is maybe five minutes away.
