Silver Series Models


There were two different Silver Series models, the SS60 and the lesser known SS150. Both are detailed on this page.

Silver Series SS60 1983

The limited edition 'Silver Series' was available in 1983 to mark the 25th Anniversary of the Landcruiser in Australia. It was the idea of Ian Glover, then editor of Overlander Magazine. The model was loaded with many accessories that were available as options from Toyota dealers. It also had some Sahara accessories as well. As the name suggests they were all silver in colour with distinctive pinstriping. There were only 500 made, but they were not numbered. They were available as both FJ60 and HJ60. Main features included;

  • Only 500 produced

  • Chrome wheels from the Deluxe model

  • Front bucket seats from the Sahara model

  • Interior colour is blue/grey.

  • Alloy combination bullbar designed to take a winch

  • Chrome rear bumper

  • Chromed tow bar

  • Chromed grille

  • 'Silver Edition' badging front and rear

  • Tailing edges of the door lined with a silver protective edging

  • Distinctive striping

  • 'Silver Series 60' tape deck and AM/FM radio

  • Headlight protectors


The 'Limited Edition Silver Series 150' was available from South Australian Toyota dealers only in 1986. There were only 50 ever made and each vehicle had a separate ID plate with the build number out of 50 stamped on a plate under the bonnet. The model was created to celebrate the Jubilee 150 - the celebration of 150 years of European Settlement in South Australia. Evidently it was the Deluxe model, but had the Sahara interior.
