At the beginning it started out as a four-door pick-up truck and later it was modified in to wagon. I have never had a single problem with any of them and rotate them often. It had a little leaking in one area but, it's an easy, silicone goop patch if it leaks again. It is measured from a perpendicular imaginary line to see if the rotor is running in a true pattern or if one part is not as true as another. I can open up both rear camper windows and the sliding window and the cross breeze is like being in a convertible through the entire truck, front and back. Good spare tire with chrome painted rim. I have always kept it very clean and well maintained.
The aluminum radiator, alternator, brake master cylinder, clutch cylinder, heater and starter have all been replaced, mostly with re-manufactured lifetime warranty parts. The clock in the radio doesn't keep time anymore. Stability control and traction control became standard on four wheel drive and PreRunners in 2004. I do all the servicing myself, including, tune ups, oil changes, lube jobs using Lucas full synthetic grease, fluid changes and tire rotations. The only reason I'm offering this baby of mine for sale is because my health does not allow me to enjoy this truck as much any more, and my medical bills are over the top.
One year later, in 1969 a long-wheelbase version was added into production. The oil gauge is manual and the bright red warning brake light, might start flicking on and off again. I will say that it has always been very well cared for, kept clean and in excellent overall condition it's entire 35 years. I would like to get this awesome truck to someone that will enjoy and take care of it for many years like I did. It hangs loose when the tailgate is closed, and folds over the back to make it easy to keep clean under.
I'm sure it's very rare to find another original 1983 Toyota 4X4 short bed pickup with as many miles, one owner, very well cared for, in as good as condition as this one. All 4 shocks were replaced for the second time, less than 40,000 miles ago with Monroe Gas Magnum shocks. Top speed: 185 kmh 115 mph 0-60 mph acceleration 0-100 kmh : 9. I re-carpeted the floor in 2011 using indoor outdoor carpet and in 2013 I replaced the mats. I never parked it uncovered if possible. In 1999, a Tacoma PreRunner was introduced, mimicking the four wheel drive model but with two wheel drive.
The story continues A shift-on-the-fly four wheel drive system, allowing front hubs to be locked from within the truck, appeared in 1984, on the fifth generation. Across the board, this generation had more comfort changes, an Xtracab with storage space behind the seats, and turbocharged versions of both the gas and diesel engine; the diesels would be dropped in 1988. We recently featured a version of the , albeit in more impressive 4×4 configuration. It is a very long conversation piece with everyone that likes anything camo, and or old Toyota 4x4s. Someone would have to look close to see it. But other than that it was my pride and joy to drive around until the frame rusted in half.
Rubberized undercoating in all the important areas. Items that did not get upgraded during the restoration are door window seals and door seals during the restoration. This one is leak, crack and pit free. Fifth generation 1988-1997 New redesigned generation was produced since 1988. This little 4×2 Hilux though, found , has a factory diesel engine — a rarity these days and a reminder that Toyota attempted to pair fuel economy with trucks long before it became fashionable. All the windows, vents and fan work.
The V6 let the compact truck tow 3,500 pounds. You can email me directly at alaskamyk gmail. The StepSide appeared in 2000, the four-door DoubleCab and S-Runner in 2001. I always use castrol gtx 10-30 engine oil in the winter, 10-40 in the summer, always with a Napa gold oil filter in the engine. The interior has camo wrap on the dash, the doors and the back wall.
If you want to compare more cars, you can go or. You can haul the untreated veggie oil in the bed! I'm not saying that his truck is perfect. What will it need in the next 10,000 miles? Letting this little gem go as I have a shop expansion staring in December and need to clear some space. It mostly just sits in my Man Cave till I can get a chance to go camping in it. He also noted that the Hilux Surf is the name used on a version of the 4Runner sold in Japan. At that point you are supposed to check the disc runout using a dial indicator.
Interior and images In the pictures bellow you can see the interior of Toyota Hilux that has very sophisticated interior. Last time was last summer. It has been in my garage, Man Cave for almost 35 years. Hoping to sell it to someone that lives outside of a big city and isn't planning on using it a lot on 80mph freeways. The rear brake shoes were replaced twice and the front brake pads were replaced four times. It can be fixed using standard seam sealer, or the dealer can take care of it under warranty in about 2 hours. Not the fastest truck, will do 65 just takes a while to get there not perfect but a blast to drive and will put a huge smile on your face.
The 4x2 also got the aforementioned big tires and wheels with cloth seats; the 4x4 included radials, chrome wheels, and chrome grille. Never been rock climbing, mudding or long trips down jeep trails. This battery is close to 10 years old. I can help arrange shipping at the buyers expense. In 2011 Toyota Hilux had an upgrade, including redesigned front end and some other changes in the exterior and interior, new turbocharged diesel engine and lower fuel consumption. I am the one and only original owner and driver.
