    Default 1993 HZJ75 Troop Carrier - NC Registered/CO Located

    Due to some over all lifestyle changes and the need for additional capital, I am in the process of changing up the vehicles I own. Plus I have vehicular ADD…I have also just listed my 2011 F250 for sale on the board.

    I have sold a few vehicles on here and I hope that some folks on this board can speak for me and this cruiser. I'm sure I will regret this later…

    The title pretty much speaks for itself and I am sure everyone is aware of what this vehicle is and the rarity. Relevant information is below, but please don’t hesitate to ask questions or contact me, however for the sake of this thread, please let's not turn this into an importation discussion. The vehicle is here and registered, please appreciate it for what it is.

    Cruiser: 1993 HZJ75 Troop Carrier w/ 150k miles (actual odo is in KM ~240k)

    Origin: AUS (RHD)

    Price: $24,000 / Will Consider Trades

    Location: Boulder, CO (NC titled and registered - I recently move back home to CO, can get it titled here if important)

    Delivery: Willing to Ship at Buyers Expense or Could Help with Delivery

    Contact Info: PM

    Summary:

    This is an awesome cruiser - everything works as it should or better, it always starts up (preheat light works), runs strong and is a blast to drive. I drove it ~1,500 miles from NC to CO and then took it to Moab for CM. As you can see there has been a lot of work done on it by reputable shops and has great aftermarket improvements. I believe that some of the guys in ONSC and others can vouch for this cruiser. I have been able to source parts with a little bit of effort and have contacts to pass along. Unfortunately, given the current situation in CO, I just wanted to say there is no flood damage.

    May I ask how you managed to get that titled in the US, given that it's not 25 years old.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the question, Dan. I was not associated with the import nor do I know the specifics. I purchased the vehicle in NC where it was previously titled and had no issues transferring the title/registering it in my name at the DMV.

    I really wish I didn't have a bad left knee because I can't drive manuals any more

    Out of curiosity, what kind of mpg are you getting?

    Thanks for the cross post! I updated my intro thread over there but didn't put it in the FS section.

    Mileage has been low/mid twenties, pretty nice for a cruiser!
