Probably should have put these in the random thread as they may be old hat to you guys, but

First link is to one of our sad online media sites, but scroll down for the 1966 Bronco ad, I enjoyed it, 11 mins long.

Second, a Land Rover Doc I stumbled upon, watched it mainly as Sir Ranulph Fienne narrated, if you don't know who he is, google Top Gear Sir Ranuplh Fienne episode, it'll make you look at your fingers differently .

Thanks to Willys for the inspiration, but as much as we loved LR's in the early years, the Toyota's soon replaced them as their electrics weren't made by LUCAS..... the Lord Of Darkness..... and we could get home again.
It's an hour long


Cheers

Those 66-76 Broncos are awesome. I wished I could afford one. The prices are jaw dropping.

I've been waiting for someone to make a short wheelbase, removable top 4x4 to challenge the Fiat Wrangler for years.  I hope the Bronco takes off.  

I keep my fingers crossed that Toyota will jump into the market (in the US), but it doesn't look promising.

At least the bronco has some old spirit still, not like the blazer <Yuck

What a let down. The blazer is just a name plate now.

This morning I took this picture after reading this post. Yes it's mine.
It is a Land Rover series ll  from 1963, one year older than I am.

That looks pretty good condition Luke. 
LR's ruled the off roads down here till the 1980's when the Toyota fj40's turned up.
I've still got a soft spot for LR's.

FJ40's didn't show up in NZ until the 80's?!?!

Toyota stopped selling the FJ40 in the United States in 1983, and only imported a few hundred that year.   Toyota sold its first Land Cruiser (an FJ2x) in 1958 in the US!

You're probably right Rob and it would have been in the 70's that they started coming in, but by the 80's the Toyota's had a dominant presence in the market.
The Hilux (Pickup) soon became the number 1 selling ute for 20 odd years until knocked off by the Ford Ranger 3.2 diesel.

A local personality and author propositioned toyota to make the first Hilux ad here, as he wanted one.
Barry and Scotty went on to feature in ads for about 12 years I think.

I loved all the old iron down in Enzed. Old British, Aussie and Japanese stuff. Felt like I'd wandered into an antique vehicle museum! You all got a lot of stuff we never did in the US, too, like the HiLux. I'd like to have one of those!
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Love that ad! (Except the steering wheel is on the wrong side😁) 

Timm - you could always sell that VW van and look for a 79-85 Toyota 4x4 pickup.  They sold a ton of those in the US, although most have been consumed by rust

Here's the 2nd Hilux ad


I'm no automotive historian, so my observations are just those of a boy growing up and seeing the changes.
The reason we had such old stock was the import tariffs, and being part of the Commonwealth most things came from Britain or fellow Commonwealth countries,  such as Canadian Coleman 🙂

We had HiLux pickups here in the states in the late 60s to early 70s.  We called them Mickey Mouse trucks because they had huge turn signals on top of the front fenders.  Datsuns were the competition for them back then, and were much better looking little pickups.

Hope the new Bronco is what it should be:  A minor face lifted '67 model with a little V8, like the old 289s they used to have.  They were sweet, and would go anywhere.  Hoping the new ones mimic those older models.

That would be trading down. I might consider adding a Land Cruiser or HiLux to the quiver if I could find one I could afford... to buy and get running.

I had a '48 Willy's PU back in the early '80s. If I hadn't driven it from Portland, OR to Big Bend, TX in two days, I might have it still. No way in hell was I going to repeat that trip. I traded it for a Yamaha Vision MC, and had a much better time on the return.

Down here the Toyota badge has earned itself a premium at sale time, some Toyota 4x4's are appreciating rather the depreciating, and not as collectables,but users.

Last year I sold a double cab 1985 Hilux I'd had for over 20 years, used it as a daily driver before I started getting company cars, and then abused it as 4x4 club hack.
Sold it to my mates son cheap, he had some fun and then tripled his money at sale.

3 years ago I had no qualms buying a 1999 Land Cruiser KZJ95 with 300,000kms on it, it'll soon rollover 400k and I don't see why it won't do somewhere near that again.

For its last 6 monthly Warrant of Fitness check (required safety inspection here, tho post 2000 cars are now yearly) I had to replace a shock and a sway bar link, both were original parts so can't complain at the milage. 
Gave it a birthday with a pair of good quality extended front shocks to suit the 2" lift I did a year ago, and a set of lower ball joints as well as a precaution, so I should be good for a while. 
(Apart from now the front rides so nice I feel I should splash on some rear shocks)

How times have changed (and I don't mean to offend anyone), when I was a teenager everyone use to say "I'll never buy that jap c..p"
I remember pulling up at my brothers in my first Japanese car, he said to his partner "looks like Andrew... but he wouldn't be driving a Mitsubishi....."

Well Japan certainly proved us all wrong with their reliability.
