TOYOTA LAND-CRUISER

5-door 6-seater all-terrain estate car.

Range Rover sized, but Land-Rover style and quality 4?4, only sold in the UK from 1975 to 1977. In retrospect, too big, heavy and crude. Much more of a light-truck than a large 'car-style' 4?4, which may explain its unpopularity, though the all-synchro'box and full equipment were a bonus. Top speed of 84mph was good, but 14mpg consumption was bad, as was the hard and rugged ride and handling. Strictly for masochists, though reputedly these machines lasted for ever.
