1988 landcruiser VX

G’day I’m from the Mornington peninsula in Victoria, stoked to be on 4x4 earth.
I’m need of some advice from guru’s out there.
I’m currently looking at 1988 landcruiser VX that is a duel fuel and has done 470,000 km’s.
which is expected for such an old beast but I was wanting to get some tips for buying one of these tanks.
What should I be looking for issue wise and where should I be looking over the body and engine.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers guys.

G'day Andrew welcome to earth mate, I'm sure one of the Toyota fella's will be able to give you some good advice about pros and cons of the vx - I reckon if you like what you buy and your happy with it, that's all that really matters.
