7 Tasteful Trailblazers

By Petrolicious Productions

Heading off the beaten path? Want a classic that’s at home on the range and ready to—gulp!—work? We searched around Europe, Asia, and North America for this selection of beautiful vintage off-roaders and trucks.

It’s time for adventure…

The car: 1967 Toyota FJ60
Price: $33,900
Location: Syracuse, Utah
Seller’s info: Click here

Even more unbreakable than M. Night Shyamalan’s character played by Bruce Willis, the FJ40 just keeps going. With values on the rise, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to buy one, enjoy it, and make a bit of money—or at least cover your running costs. A nearly free truck? Not a bad deal.

The car: Mercedes-Benz Unimog 401
Oldenburg, Germany

Go anywhere, do anything—the Unimog is the ultimate off-roader. Never all that affordable, fleets of these things have been used as utility vehicles in the harshest terrains. That beautiful Alpine ski resort you were at last year? There was probably a Unimog or two keeping the place going.

The car: 1968 Land Rover Series II
Price: €6,500
Location: Offingawier, Netherlands
Seller’s info: Click here 

Said to be rot-free, this is a great price for the smallest Land Rover—just be comfortable with right-hand drive and book your flight to the Netherlands to pick it up…

The car: 1950 International Harvester KB II
Price: €13,750
Location: Wommels, Netherlands
Seller’s info: Click here

Frame-off restorations can be helpful on work vehicles such as this; with many living hard lives, “patina” is a word that often means “rot”. Better still, the seller says its engine has been recently refreshed. 

The car: Range Rover classic
Price: Inquire
Location: San Fior
Seller’s info: Click here

Sadly without a price, this listing for a red two-door Land Rover Range Rover is par for the course in what we’ve seen from this Italian dealer that specializes in the marque. Offering restorations to the customer’s taste, it’s one of the few shops that cater to people who want a “brand new” Range Rover.

The car: 1971 Mazda T-2000
Price: Inquire
Location: Osaka, Japan
Seller’s info: Click here

Also from G.Lion Museum, we can’t resist the chance to include a Mazda T2000 in our market finds—the finest and one of the largest 3-wheeled pickup trucks ever built. Seriously, this is as long as a Ford F-150.

The car: 1980 Mercedes-Benz 280GE SUV
Price: $24,800
Location: Chicago, Illinois
Seller’s info: Click here

Preparing to be a Bond villain for Halloween this year, or do you just really enjoy the thought of being the coolest dad on your street? There’s something about these old G-Wagens that instantly causes fantasies of spontaneous cross-country adventures…
