Old Yeller

New Zealand Classic Car - - PRICE ON -

Some of you will re­call out SUV fea­ture in Is­sue No. 312. One of the ve­hi­cles fea­tured was a very tidy 1984 HJ60 Land Cruiser. Fol­low­ing the photo shoot with the other fea­ture ve­hi­cles, the owner of the truck de­cided his paint­work wasn’t quite up to scratch, as a bit of lam­i­nate was peel­ing away and a touch of fade was be­gin­ning to oc­cur.

Thus, he en­gaged the team at CBD Panel­beat­ing and Me­chan­i­cal in Grey Lynn, Auck­land, to re­spray the truck. Fol­low­ing some back-and-forth about colours, they landed on a tint just a shade yel­lower than orig­i­nal.

The old Cruiser has come out look­ing a mil­lion bucks, and con­tin­ues to be driven around town and used as a fam­ily hauler by the owner.
