Car description

Our company was featured on the National Geographic Channel. We have imported and sold over 100 diesel land cruisers in the six years that we have been in business and have driven and inspected 100s of diesel cruisers. You can trust our expertise as the premier dealer of diesel land cruisers.

This super rare diesel cruiser we named Celeste. She is beautiful and so much fun to drive! You won't want to drive anything else once you cruise around in this head turning completely restored cruiser. The frame on restoration was completed on 12/25/18. I have pictures of the cruiser before restoration that I can provide upon request. It has the original paint color of Sky Blue 854. When we started with Celeste it was in great condition with no rust or bondo, and we just made it better. Celeste had 2 owners who took great care of her, garaged and maintained. It was sold to us by the 2nd owner because he couldn't drive anymore.

We had a certified diesel mechanic check her over and found no major issues. There were a few things that were replaced and now everything works perfectly.

Diesel Land Cruisers are worth much more than the gas FJ40s because they were never sold in the US, so any diesel in this country are super rare because it had to be imported from another country, though few countries have the regular left hand diesels. The diesel cruisers are a great investment because unlike a new car, whose value goes down the minute you drive it off the lot. These iconic cruisers value keeps going up. See video below for more details.

About Us
We are a husband and wife team, originally from Wisconsin, who moved to Costa Rica 8 years ago (but moved back to the good old US since then). We started importing Land Cruisers to the US and Canada 6 years ago, and have imported over 100 Land Cruisers to date. All of the new owners have easily gotten their US title and registration at their local dmv with all the correct papers we provide and Costa Rican title. Unless otherwise pre-arranged, ebay deposits are non refundable.

  • Amazing investment potential. Value only appreciates instead of depreciating like a newer vehicle.
  • High Value- Land Cruisers have sold at auction for over $100 and the majority sell for around $50k at auctions.
  • Used Veggie oil, run your cruiser for free!
  • 3 vehicles in 1. Take the top and sides off for open air driving or put on a soft top for a different look.
  • Parts are easy to find.
  • "Bullet proof engines" The B diesel engines are known to rarely break down and get to 500k miles.
  • Great MPG. 33mpg average
  • Drive something that no one else has. There are very few diesel LCs in the US.
  • If you're a business owner this is the perfect vehicle to promote your business because of the head turning classic looks.
