Japanese Fire Truck: 1980 Toyota Land Cruiser


What boy doesn’t dream of driving a fire engine? There is just something mesmerizing about those big red trucks. This 1980 Toyota Land Cruiser might not be the type of fire engine most of us dreamt of as a kids, but I’m sure the child in all of us would love to take it for a spin. It was imported from Japan and only has about 8k miles on the odometer. It is currently in Monterey, California and can be found here on eBay.


Admittedly, this isn’t a barn find, but it’s an interesting survivor that would be fun to own. The seller has all the original paperwork from when it was imported by the U.S. Military and they claim that everything works as it should. It might not be a big shiny fire truck, but it’s one of the few fire engines that you can park in your garage.
