FJ Fire Truck
Toyota J series Landcruiser prices have become wince inducing in recent times, possibly because good, rust free examples are hard to find and restoration costs are frightening.

Although they were built to last they’ve usually lived hard lives and rust was a big problem.

The 5 digit odometer shows just 27,500kms and it’s entirely possible that is its true mileage. It has had an external colour change (there’s only one colour for a fire engine) with the original colour being the iconic mustard yellow. Here are some photos of it during service.
Keep it as a fire appliance or revert back to original, you decide, but don’t let it slip by if it’s what you're looking for as they don’t come around often. More details here. Auction coming soon.
