This looks like quite a nice rarity, a fully restored 1971 Land Rover Series IIA 109, that’s been re-powered with an intercooled Cummins 4BT turbo diesel engine. In addition to the roof rack, it’s fitted with a custom bumper, 8,000-lb Warn winch, and dual fuel tanks. From the sound of the ad and the look of the photos, this is a first-class truck.

Can you imagine yourself sitting in that clean, purposeful interior as you rumble across the terrain? The seller is asking $31,000. More images below. The seller offers a full write-up on his blog.

Today I spotted this rare 1966 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45 for sale on Craigslist. This longbed version of the Land Cruiser was known as a station wagon in its day. The seller says the body and interior are in rough but usable condition. Mechanically it sounds sorted out, however, with a newer engine and transmission, Old Man Emu suspension and a factory PTO winch.

A PTO (power take-off) winch is driven by the engine, via the transfer case, instead of off of the electrical system or the hydraulic system like almost every aftermarket winch. The main advantage is that it will run all day, unlike electric winches, which typically have short duty cycles given the heat they generate and the huge amount of current they draw.

The owner is currently considering offers over $5000.
