what are my chances of ever finding a lhd 78 series in the states or even to get one imported? i guess all 78's are 4 door. i've seen several, but were all rhd.

It's a specialty market. They are imported for use in the mines. ONce they go into the mine they never see the sun again. They are maintained underground as well as parted out uunder ground when thier usefull life has been exceeded.

I read somewhere here on MUD that they cost $78k new for the non crew cab version.

not the diesel ones I know of.

1hZ cab chassis models sell new for about 42,000 CND dollars. Not 4 door models.


You want a 4 door 70 series, import one from Europe.

Here is the German version of MUD. No four door versions there.

i was curious as to where i could find a 4 door(not counting rear amby doors), but a lhd model.

technically all SWB and MWB 70 series are 4 door but the ones you're probably thinking about are 6 doors
Europe : not a chance.

so, are they in europe? or does this mean not a chance of importing them?

ha.

it would be a nice replacement for the 80 if/when the wife takes it over, but looks like i'm gonna have to wait a few years. something to look forward too.
