1994 Toyota Land Cruiser VX Turbo 80 Series


  • A very original survivor in great condition for its age and mileage
  • 4.3-litre turbo diesel coupled to an automatic gearbox with high and low range
  • Incredibly rugged vehicle capable of going just about anywhere

The Appeal

If there’s a car you can rely on above all others, it has to be the Toyota Land Cruiser. Not only are they amongst the most capable off-roaders ever made, a Land Cruiser will keep on working mile after mile.

Testament to their longevity, here we have a 1994 VX Turbo 80 Series that has covered an indicated 188,999 miles. Naturally, it’s still going strong and not only that, it’s also in really good condition. 

Furthermore, they’re immensely comfortable and make great family transport. So if you’re tired of your lesser all-roader breaking down, or fancy a good old fashioned 4X4 for family duties, then this Toyota has you covered.

  • Besides the off small mark and some gentle creasing very little wear is evident to the seats
  • Electrically adjustable front seats
  • We're told a new electric window motor has also been fitted
  • The carpeting appears rather tired but may respond well to a thorough clean
  • Veneer on the dashboard and door panels adds a touch of luxury and they’re in reasonable condition with some slight deterioration
  • We understand that that the switchgear works correctly

  • Largely straight bodywork, with a few minor dents and some scratches
  • The panel alignment looks good and the doors shut well
  • The bumpers and side steps remain in good order
  • Underneath, this car looks to be clean and well presented
  • There are no obvious signs of corrosion to the chassis or the bodywork
  • Fitted with a towbar, pin and trailer electrics
  • The alloy wheels are in reasonable shape for their age and the tyres look to be in fair condition

The Mechanics 

  • 4.0-litre turbo diesel
  • Automatic gearbox with high and low range
  • Locking differential
  • We understand that this Toyota drives well and the gearbox operates well
  • Under the bonnet, all appears to be in good order
  • We're informed by the vendor that the axles have been reconditioned, new brake discs, pads and callipers have been fitted, and new dampers have also been fitted all round
  • The vendor also tells us that they have fitted a new cambelt, water pump, radiator, auxiliary belts and given the car a full service with fresh fluids throughout


These old Land Cruisers make great workhorses and, with the right maintenance, we see no reason why this example shouldn’t remain on the road for many years to come.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
