In my searching I haven't found a Y61 in europe with a factory TD42T and the NA TD42 is rare. Or rare enough people don't sell them. 2.8 is common but underpowered for towing.
Who cares who has what. If you can't wrap your head around RHD vs LHD vs RHD (no difference), then Phillipines, SA and Europe are your shopping grounds.
I agree about knowing what you want before you go shopping.
Y61's are coils all around.
If you haven't driven a Y60 and Y61 to compare, I suggest you do. They are very different. My 91 Y60 felt like a tank. My 95 Y60 feels like a Y61 because it's a newer (Safari) model and nice and quiet inside.
It will come down to personal preference. I prefer the Y60 after driving both as I won't cringe when I take it into the bush and because the outer shell is less bulky, it doesn't feel like a bloated whale when in tight areas compared to the Y61. On the other hand, the Y61 is more comfy inside but only comes in a low roof. Y60's have both low and high roof. High roof makes a large difference when sitting inside. The 95/96 Safari Y60's from Japan most come factory turbo'd with rear diff locker, 12V system with 24V starter (extreme climates) and a more refined interior/sound proofing that is more along the lines of a late 90's Y61.
Try both and see what you like.
