…. But it seems it can. Apparently it has been running happily for 10 years like it.

What do we think?

Mines just the same, missing the screenwash cap......

Or are you referring to the disconnected heater hoses or the lack of ABS and an old school servo and master cylinder?

Screen wash caps - Subaru at about $1.00 each fit just fine.

But...why?

Well the fellow lives in Borneo, so I'm guessing it was a lot easier to work out how to fit a Tojo one that get RR support.

I guess that's not a bad reason - if its done well and safely, I'm not hating on it - just couldn't see the appeal but that makes sense.

Advantages would be cheaper more readily available parts, a simpler or more conventional braking system and easier to fix if you are in the sticks.

Disadvantages would be no traction control, no ABS, possibly less power from the brakes? ... vacuum servo vs high pressure pump.
Front to rear braking split could be solved with an adjustable valve.

What am I looking for - or missing - except for the fact that there is no cap on the windscreen washer bottle ?

No ABS modulator, just a conventional master cylinder and servo.

Modulators are bloody expensive new, like £2 to £3k, so that would be the reason for doing it.
There are different types as well. I am not even sure if you can buy new modulators now. Could have been on the dealers shelf for 20 years.
I got a few used modulators that have popped up on Ebay just in case. Along with Wabco controllers which sometimes go and used booster pumps.
