Andrew St Pierre White of 4xOverland fame recently moved to Perth, Australia and purchased a new 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser 79 Dual Cab. These are currently unavailable in North American and other markets. 70 Series Land Cruisers are popular 4 wheel drive vehicles. For example, Brendan Batty wrote, “If there is a four-wheel-drive that still embodies the practicality, ruggedness and base function of its early ancestors, it’s the 79 Series LandCruiser, a fact made blatantly apparent while I was waiting for the NRMA to jump start me in Sydney Airport’s long term car-park.” While the 79 Series is often used as a fleet vehicle for mining companies with its tray in the back, solid axles, V8 turbo diesel, locking differentials, it also enjoys strong appeal among four wheel drive enthusiasts.
This should be an interesting build to observe over the coming weeks. Watch Andrew St Pierre White describe “getting his own life back”, purchasing a new vehicle, planning his build (including a new camper), all in preparation for a trip along the famous Canning Stock Route.
