This 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ46 Long wheelbase was inspected for a client at USS Nagoya auction on 15 September 2017. The BJ46 model is becoming quite rare and hard to find now with many exported in the past to Canada, Australia and elsewhere.
It was graded R (repaired). 127,855 kms on the odometer but marked with a * as unknown total kms due to age.
Still had some registration left (this affects price in Japan).
There was no obvious accident damage / repair – the R grading appeared to be due to the rust repairs.
A semi-restoration had been done and considering the condition of most others now available, it was about the cleanest one of this age you might find in Japan.
Patch panels and plates were fitted for rust repair. Some of the welds and seams were different but overall not a bad job for Japan.
New diamond plate side steps had been welded on, and some welding had also been done on the rear lower quarters around the wheel tubs and floor seams.
Interior was quite original. Engine started right up first time and ran well. No major oil leaks, top of transmission, transfer case, U-joints were all OK. No oil leaks on the diff.
It passed in (unsold – reserve price not reached) with the last bid at 2 million Yen. Based on that the owner wanted more than 2,200,000 YEN FOB – total price for import to Australia at the time would have been more than $30,800 landed (calculated at a rate of 88 yen to the dollar).

The pictures are typical of the information we provide prior to auction for each vehicle of interest, with any faults shown so you can clearly see the condition before we discuss whether to bid, and your budget.
It is vital when sourcing your vehicle to use an agent that takes the time to physically check each vehicle and looks beyond the auction pictures and report to confirm condition. Some vehicles may have an unpleasant smoke or other odour, rust underneath, or other faults which are impossible to know without inspection.
