Toyota 1983 Land Cruiser Is The Bad Ass Ride You Need

On first glance, you’re probably thinking, “Why do I recognize this car?” Maybe you’re confusing it with its similar-looking relative, the Jeep. Or, if you’re like us, you may be thinking of Jurassic Park. If so, you’d be partly right.

Although the Toyota Land Cruiser didn’t appear in the Jurassic Park movies (in favor of the Ford Explorer), it was specifically named in the original novels as the vehicle of choice. If a car is handpicked for keeping you safe from dinosaurs, that automatically makes it bad ass.

Fortunately, you can get your hands on your very own custom refurbished Land Cruiser or the modern-day version of it. The Land Cruiser line is one of the most popular four-wheel drive vehicles and first began in the 1980s. Original versions of it were used for military units of the US, Japan, and Korea.

This particular model has a powerful look that makes it feel like you could drive over anything. The hard top is reinforced by a sturdy frame for added safety, just in case a T-Rex would happen to attack you. A 4-speed transmission and 2F engine make it run. A sturdy bar on the front is rigged for pulling thanks the to Land Cruiser’s powerful pull strength.

Whether you’re looking to outrun dinosaurs, fight a world conflict, or turn heads on the street, this 1983 Land Cruiser will do just that. Learn More
