    Default What 1960's cruiser to buy?

    I'm setting up a 2 night 4x4 safari route on private land and I'm looking to get old Landy 88" series 2's and Cruisers. The problem is I know zero about the old cruiser from the 60's except they look really good!
    My question is what short wheel base 60's model cruiser would you buy for a challenging 4x4 safari route? Sand, mud, rock, drifts, hill climbing etc
    I'm not interested in any newer models or other brands for now, yes I'd love old Willie's Jeeps but just not available up here so sticking with what I can get to start.

    Shorty Cruisers are hensteeth. Finding a 60`s model even less of a chance. Maybe some rare imports in Africa. Going ridiculous prices.
    Even old FJ45 pick-ups in good running condition fetch very good prices these days.

    Why do I know? Cause I am looking for a J40 for the last few years.
    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    Check out the film Dark of the Sun (1968) based on a Wilbur Smith novel. Some crazy action scenes in a shorty Cruiser!

    I've seen a few bangers up here but don't know a good one. I'm taking it that you'd recommend the J40 so I'll start looking there.
    Up here still a number of old 4x4's in out of the way places, they'll all need lots of work but that's the fun
