Information about Brazilian 4x4 Toyotas:
I stopped in at a dealer that imports this model today and asked about the price. I was told they sell them here (in CA) for about $80,000!
I have a 1978 model and I think Bandeirante is the most reliabylit FWD vehicle I've ever seen. I know some others cars, like Land Rover, Nissan, Mitsubish. Those are excellent and comfortable. But Bandeirante is the best, it's strong and I love it.
Hi there from Germany. I own a BJ42 ('Bandeirante') aged 20 with over 270'km. It works very well here in heavy foresting. Since I added two lockers front and rear, nothing is able to stop this bulldog. My Toyo gets me everywhere, anytime.
10/14/2002 - Love Bandeirante Toyota. I have this one. It is 1991, diesel and it take me any where. With sun, rain, beach, mud, sand, water I go and go back. But I know, there are any car better to drive on asphalt.

I have a 1986 Bandeirante with the 4 cylinder Mercedes Diesel, anyone interested?. I'm located on Vancouver Island, B.C.. For further info. John email@example.com.
I have a 2001 Toyota "bandeirante", it is the last year of production here in Brazil, where I live. This last model has a diesel Toyota engine "14 b" with 3700cc, 98 hp@3400 and 22,5 kgf@2200 rpm, 5 manual speed with reduced. It's very reliable and it's your trademark. It makes 10Km/l in average and top speed is 135 Km/hour.
I'm willing to turbocharge my Toyota "Bandeirante" 14B engine. Could you help me with parts specs (turbine, inter cooler...)? Is it necessary a waste gate valve?

Hi, I think I own the only Bandeirante in France, and most probably in Europe.
I brought it from Brazil in 2006.
Apart the Mercedes OM364 motor, differences are few with the other BJ's. I have recently changed the front bearings and birfields using parts suitable for the local TLC BJ's.
