For sale: 1977 FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser (SWB)

This 1977 FJ40 has been with the same owner for the last 20 years, and has received significant investment in practical upgrades to make the car the perfect weekend cruiser for the short-wheelbase enthusiast. The current owner is regrettably offering the vehicle for sale, having covered only 3,500km since the engine was replaced with a new 350ci unit in 2006.

This cruiser is offered with full NSW registration expiring on 26 February 2019, and is in excellent roadworthy condition, seeking a new owner who will appreciate the time, energy and dollars that have been put into the car over the last two decades.

- Mechanical

An engineer complied 350 Chev is currently fitted, with a Holley carburetor, and power sent through a 5-speed manual gearbox with additional Fairey overdrive gears making for relaxing highway cruising whilst retaining the classic bottom-end FJ40 4X4 capability.  The engine runs very smoothly, with all 4WD gear connected and working well. The car also has power steering and a power clutch fitted for ease of driving.

In 2006 the car received a replacement engine (receipts can be provided). Since then, only 3,500km have been covered. The engine operates with dual-fuel through the addition of twin 80-litre (150 useable litres) stainless steel LPG tanks in the rear cabin (in addition to the 100L petrol tank). This provides excellent range for those long weekend trips.

The brakes and suspension have also received significant upgrades. Front discs are fitted, and the larger diameter front drum brakes have been fitted to the rear wheels.  Load variable shock absorbers have been installed in the rear, allowing pressure to be increased under heavy loads or to suit the driving conditions.

The car also received brand new rear axles in July 2018, and sits on near new 16 X 8 GT 8-pot alloys with barely used Light Truck 285/75 R16 Hankook DynaPro MT tyres (including the spare).

- Body and chassis

The history of this vehicle is not straightforward. The chassis and running gear are from a 1975 vehicle, with the body from 1977. At great cost in 2006, a good straight 1977 body was sourced and taken off its chassis. The shell was then fully submerged in a caustic acid then a phosphoric acid dip to kill all and any rust inside and out. The condition of the undercarriage is a testament to this, and having been garaged all its life the body remains very well preserved.

Following the acid dip, body work was completed to adapt the owner’s preferred rear barn-doors to enhance accessibility (originally the vehicle had the lower barn-doors and upper hatch). The factory mild steel bolts fitted throughought the body were all replaced with stainless steel bolts, to prevent any future rust outbreaks. It then received a 2-pak paint job of gloss black with burgundy accents. The body was then put back on the chassis with the V8 driveline and various upgrades. Although there are some minor scratches and blemishes around the body, the paint retains and excellent shine, and only small touch ups would be necessary.

The vehicle is currently fitted with a light-weight aluminium bull-bar (with Narva spotlights), and towbar. All electrics are hooked up and working.


- Interior

The seat trim has been very well preserved for its age, with the current owner having always fitted seat covers to the original bench seat. Examples of the cloth condition can be seen in the images, with very limited wear to the seat bolsters or bases.

Custom-cut rubber floor mats are fitted to the front floor-pans and rear deck sitting on top of the metal, providing for great protection and easy cleaning. The floors are all in excellent condition. In the rear, neat side benches have been custom built to house the twin LPG tanks, which sit nicely on either side of the rear deck, with plenty of space in the centre for luggage.

- Extras

The cruiser comes with a large number of spare parts and extras as part of the price. This includes a water pump, 2 front brake rotors, 4 front brake pads, 4 rear drum brake shoes, 2 rear shocks, Chev vacuum advance, 2 new distributor caps, tail lights, headlamps and more.

For sale: 2002 Mercedes CLK55 AMG


Australian delivered,  all original, outstanding condition, full service history. The car is in Sydney but on QLD registration, I can deliver with either NSW rego or as is.

This is the first of the in house AMG vehicles which were essentially hand built supercars - astronomic money when new given the extent of the engineering and features fitted.

This example had long term ownership with a Mercedes mechanic and runs faultlessly and is great fun to drive. It has its standard exhaust and the V8 sound great. The interior has a few small imperfections but it's in outstanding overall condition, and nothing needs attention. Easily get in and drive anywhere, and it is ridiculously fast. long registration - happy to do NSW or QLD for the buyer.

A must inspect car for the serious buyer, at a realistic price. It's a true modern classic and will likely only increase in value as its recognition as such a special vehicle grows. These early in house AMG cars are really gaining momentum.

More information and images coming soon.

For sale: 1997 Mercedes-Benz CL500 (C140)


The last of the over-engineered Mercedes cars, and surely one of Bruno Sacco’s finest designs, the C140 is the king of the S-Class coupes. There are never more than a handful of these for sale at any one time, owing to the C140s very low production numbers (and particularly low sales numbers in Australia, having a price tag of nearly $300,000 when new).

This CL500 was built in June 1997 and is finished in Smoke Silver, with Mushroom Nappa leather interior. The car has been well looked after, and has low k’s for its age. This example is particularly special because it has the very rare “Leather Exclusive” factory option (Code 515 on the data plate). This option provides for two tone mushroom leather trim, a leather trimmed dashboard, door card and rear card arm rests, console and sun visors, with suede headliner. The Leather Exclusive option is usually applied to selected V12 coupes, and is rarely specified on the 500 models.

Being a later series “CL” badged car, it features several specifications not present on the 1995 and earlier C140 vehicles, including the upgraded (non-biodegradable) wiring harness, 5-speed transmission, side airbags, front and rear “Parktronic” parking sensors and updated tail lights (just to name a few).

The original Smoke Silver paint is in great condition for the car’s age, and all panels on the car are straight, with no rust anywhere to be seen. The seller is only the third owner, and its condition suggests that it has been kept undercover its whole life. Inside, the leather is in good condition throughout. Importantly, the driver’s seat bolsters are in great shape, and there are no serious tears / cuts anywhere in the leather fabric. The timber trim accents (which appear to be the “Chestnut” option), are all immaculate and stand out nicely against the mushroom trim.

Mechanically the car is excellent, runs very smoothly with no oil leaks or problem known of. It has won multiple awards at concourse events over the years, and the current owner has retained all of those records as part of the car’s file. The car comes with its two original keys, plus the original “Swiss Card Key” which was issued to owners when these were new.

For sale: 2006 BMW Z4 M Coupe


One of only 1,052 E86 M coupes built in right hand drive (and one of only 103 delivered new to Australia), this example is all original and hasn't event hit 100,000 km in its 14 years. It is of course fitted with the legendary S54 engine (the same as fitted to the M3 CSL), providing extraordinary power to weight (252kw in a car that weighs only 1,395kg!).

The car is in immaculate condition, with a full service history, and finished in its original Space Grey Metallic, with black trim. Fewer and fewer original clean examples come up for sale these days, and prices are expected to get stronger for these rare “M” cars, which already have a big global following.

There are very few currently available for sale in Australia. There is nothing to spend on this example - buy to enjoy, or as a modern classic investment. Inspections welcome, for further information about this very unique collector car, please login to contact Anthony by clicking the “contact seller” button at the top of this page.

This rare Australian delivered 560SEC was advertised on carsales Australia in May 2020. A fair bit of work needed to get it back to its former glory, but compared to some of the prices being asked for these AU delivered 560s now, this is somewhat of a bargain at 18K. There are some immaculate examples asking over 50, which may be a bit premature, although we expect that to be the norm in the coming decade.

Only 75 of these were brought to Australia as part of a small Homologation exercise, and we've written about these as modern classics around 7 years ago - and over that time it seems values have staggeringly increased.

This example is advertised through the Classic Throttle Shop in North Sydney. CHeck out the link here on carsales: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1994-toyota-celica-gt4-manual-4wd/OAG-AD-18597121/?Cr=0
