What you see here is great example of an iconic and rare Land Cruiser hard top convertible with the rare rear half doors.  A 1993 Toyota Land Cruiser KZJ73 left-hand drive European spec sold new on August 8, 1993.  The Land Cruiser was sold to the Fernseh Breuer-Thewald & Co. GmbH by Kretschmer Toyota of Bruhl, Germany.  The selling dealer serviced this Toyota for first 3 years according to the Service Book.  Car Cave purchased this beautiful KZJ73 from a Monsieur Stephane located in Perols on the southern coast of France.  Since then we have put plenty of miles on this LC and even drove it down to Florida for the Amelia Island Concours.

A 3.0L Diesel turbo diesel powers this truck and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a two-speed transfer case.  The smooth running ultra-reliable Toyota 1KZ-T is a 3.0L (2,982 cc) Single Overhead Cam indirect injection turbo diesel.  The front hubs are the always faithful manual Aisin with push button 4-wheel high-range and a floor shifted transfer case for low-range situations.  This Cruiser had a complete tear down respray by the previous owner in a Classic Silver finish.  The fiberglass removable FRP top, roll cage, and glove box door were all painted in a contrasting gloss black.  Interior carpets grey carpet with cloth Grey Moon Mist interior appears to be original to the automobile.  Factory built options include power locks, power steering, center console, power windows, tilt steering wheel, manual idle speed, rear barn doors, rear wiper, head lamp washers, digital clock, and rear defrost.  The factory Toyota altimeter inclinometer tilt gauge are still present on the dash above the JVC KD-X230 Media Player playing music through Sony speakers.  Blackstar 265/70R16 mud tires provide a smooth ride with aggressive off-road capabilities and wrap around a set of aftermarket 16” black steel wheels.  A full size spare will be included with the sale upon buyers request.  Service records, manuals, history file, French technical control, factory Toyota jack, and rubber caps will be included with the sale.

The top is removable and a factory integrated roll cage is found underneath.  Several suppliers do sell a soft top to make this a unique and universal vehicle.  In addition, the windshield folds down on to the hood if you want a full throwback overlanding experience with the wind in your face.
