TOY­OTA LAND CRUISER HJ47 TROOP CAR­RIER

4 x 4 Australia - - History -

YEAR OF MAN­U­FAC­TURE: 1984 OWNER: DANIEL RAGUSI

LAND Cruiser 40s built on the long­wheel­base chas­sis were des­ig­nated ei­ther 45 or 47. What we have here is an HJ47, which means it’s a long-wheel­base, 11-seat Troop Car­rier with the 4.0-litre 2H six-cylin­der diesel and four-speed gear­box. The two fourper­son rear seats run along the sides of the cabin rather than across, hence the Troop Car­rier des­ig­na­tion.

The 40 came with a num­ber of dif­fer­ent diesels, in­clud­ing the 3.0-litre B, 3.2-litre 2B and 3.4-litre 3B four-cylin­der en­gines; and 3.6-litre H and 4.0-litre 2H six-cylin­der en­gines. Long-wheel­base mod­els only came with a six-cylin­der en­gine.

This very tidy ex­am­ple is from the last year of 40 Se­ries pro­duc­tion in 1984, and it was pur­chased from its orig­i­nal owner in Melbourne around 10 years ago.
