Autotrader Find: Right-Hand Drive 1990 Toyota Land Cruiser

If you’re looking for a Toyota Land Cruiser that’s a bit more authentic than your regular, everyday U.S. model Land Cruiser, here’s the one you’ll want. This is a 1990 Land Cruiser that was sold new in and legally imported from Japan, and now it can be yours.

Offered by a private seller in Missouri for $20,000, this Land Cruiser differs from a U.S. model in several ways. The most obvious, of course, is the right-hand drive configuration, but there are other changes: While all U.S. Land Cruiser models of this era used a 4.5-liter gas-powered 6-cylinder, most Land Cruiser models sold overseas instead used a diesel — including this one. There are also a few other changes, like some styling differences and a rear-mounted spare tire.

This particular Land Cruiser boasts off-roading tires, a center differential lock and around 270,000 kilometers, which translates to about 170,000 miles — not bad for an "80-series" Land Cruiser, which is generally agreed by enthusiasts to be among the most indestructible body styles for the vehicle. The novelty of having a right-hand drive "80 series" model might also be cool for some Land Cruiser fans who are bored with the norm.

This Land Cruiser has a Missouri title and license plates, which should make it easier for future owners to register in their home states. With that said, given that it’s over 25 years old, it shouldn’t be too hard, since it likely complies with U.S. laws and regulations. And now it can be yours if you’re looking for something a little different with your Land Cruiser.
