Toyota Landcruiser Hardtop 75/ 78

The Toyota Landcruiser Hardtop has (up to) six window seats and a pop-up roof. These classic safari models are extremely powerful and reliable and with no electronics, made for the bush. Hence note that the driving comfort on asphalted roads and features like A/C and quality of the speakers can't be compared to cars manufactured nowadays.

Pop-up roof: yes, or 2 roof hatches, one in the front and one in the back row seat. The pop-up roof can’t be used anymore when a rooftop tent is mounted.
Inverter: yes
Dual battery (for the fridge): no, the fridge can only be used while the engine is running.
Water tank:no
A/C: no. Reason being that the A/C can get blocked easily as a result of the bumpy and dusty roads and it's very challenging to fix this in the bush. Drive with your windows open. 
Radio with small speakers and USB and audio port. Bring your own audio cable to play music from your phone.
Booth: the booth is small. We advise packing your luggage in soft duffle bags as they pack easier than suitcases. If your travel group is six, you will store some bags between the seats inside the car. In case you go camping, the vehicle can accommodate 4 persons with camp gear and luggage. 
Tools: wheel spanner, towing rope, jumper cables, high-lift jack, shovel, fire extinguisher, reflector triangles, first aid kit, Bradt Travel Guide, roadmap, practical information booklet.
