1985 Toyota LandCruiser with trailer
I purchased this ute from the previous owner who got it new in 1985. It was originally a petrol powered HJ75, however it has been modified extensively and completely rebuilt since then.
The vehicle has had 105k spent on parts and was valued at 70k in 2012
GEP Optimizer 6500 Intercooled Turbo. This engine was designed and built by GEP for the US Military to use in their Humvees. It built on the design of the well known Chev 6.5L however changed the design to fix a number of the issues that that motor had. Parts are cheap and easy to get from the US.
The conversion was done by Dewars Engines in Albury and engineers certificates are included. They have installed a big custom radiator and a custom oil cooler. Engine has done around 70k kms.
