Autotrader Find: Armored 2005 Toyota Sequoia

If you’ve ever felt like someone was out to get you, this 2005 Toyota Sequoia is the perfect car for you. This Sequoia is armored, with bulletproof glass and a host of other details — and it’s currently offered by a private seller in Ardmore, Oklahoma, for $29,000.

Here’s the basic situation: According to the seller, this Sequoia is "Level III armored," which means it offers protection from a 9mm round, along with other weapons as described in the listing. But this armoring includes a wide range of protection, like 40mm glass, a Kevlar roof and floor, firewall armoring, an armored battery and an armored engine computer. It even features run-flat tire inserts that can drive the vehicle, even if the tires are flat, up to 60 miles per hour for 30 minutes.

According to the listing, this Sequoia was used by Toyota in Southern California when executives were visiting the automaker’s factory in Tijuana. As a result, the listing says, this Sequoia was largely kept in a Toyota warehouse in Southern California, and only used for that purpose. The current owner in Oklahoma bought it within the last few years, and it’s now covered 82,000 miles.

It appears this Sequoia’s armoring — which even includes a second door added to the cargo area — was never used, and it remains in excellent condition today, ready to protect anyone who wants to drive around in a bulletproof vehicle that doesn’t exactly look like the typical bulletproof vehicle.
