    Hi All, thanks for letting me join, my name is Barry
    I've just bought a 1990, 80 series with 133k on the clock with absolutely no rust, anywhere!
    Its taken 2 years to find one this good and apart from the tyres its pretty much standard
    I plan to turn it into an overlander (Morocco mainly) so will be probably asking for lots of help sourcing parts :)
    I spent 3 months in Morocco a few years ago and fell in love with the place and been wanting to go back ever since. I used to own a Hilux Surf but that overheated and cracked the head, even with the extra cooling i'd fitted. Oh well, onwards and upwards :)
    Cheers!

    Hi Barry and welcome. Seems like you’ve found the needle in the haystack. I have heard about rust free 80s out there. Some even come in blue. :)

    Looking forward to hearing more and seeing some pics along the way.

    Best wishes

    Rich

    It won't be rust free once it's been to Morocco.
