Toyota Land Cruiser KZJ70

Natural Aspirations

Factory Built Convertible 70 Series with the 3.0L 1KZT Diesel and Half Doors. One of the coolest rigs out there from the factory and this one has a crazy amount of modifications. Intercooler with side exit exhaust!

Since taking pictures we have updated the front seats and installed a brand new set of Corbeau reclining racing seats and a bluetooth headunit.

This Toyota is stored in our Aiken, SC climate controlled warehouse and comes with South Carolina title. We do not consign vehicles. The inventory is 100% owned, maintained, and driven by us here at Car Cave.

We are constantly searching for 70 Series Land Cruisers in particular the soft top half door models. The KZJ70 shown here is an excellent combination of options and drive train. The Land Cruiser features the rare combination of 1KZT 3.0L diesel, manual transmission, convertible body configuration with half doors, and was factory built with a limited slip differential. Since new this LC has received a significant number of performance, suspension, safety, and aesthetic upgrades.

This is a left-hand drive example sold new and lived it’s entire life in France until recently being imported by Car Cave. A 3.0L turbo diesel powers this truck and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission and two-speed transfer case. The smooth running ultra reliable Toyota 1KZ-TE is a 3.0L (2,982 cc) Single Overhead Cam indirect injection turbo diesel. Front hubs have been converted and upgraded to manual Aisin hubs with a push button high range and floor shifted transfer case when low range is necessary. The KZJ70 is finished in Toyota Paint Code 045 also known as basic white. Factory front seats have been replaced with Outback Import racing seats and 5-point harnesses although the factory 3-point safety belts are still installed. Factory equipment includes manual windows, manual locks, tilt wheel, center console, idle control speed, power steering, power brakes, intermittent wipers, suspension front seats, and rear heat. The front windshield does fold down with quick release wiper arms to accelerate the process. The factory gauge cluster includes: tachometer, speedometer, temperature, fuel, oil pressure, and voltmeter. The dash mounted factory altimeter, inclinometer, and exterior temperature gauges have been removed in favor of a set of non-functional aftermarket gauges. A brand new set of five 285/75R16 Yokohama Geolander M/T tires and Pro Comp 69 16×8 Flat Black wheels keep rubber on the ground. Timing belt was changed at approximately 93,000 miles according to records.
