Remember the other car star of the Back to the Future films? Yes, the rugged looking black Toyota 4x4 Sport Truck! While we do not have a clone of Marty McFlys Toyota 4x4 SR5 Club Cab, this example is very close and still captures the impressionable pop culture that these little Toyota sport trucks had on the US market when new in the early 1980's. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is excited to present the nicest 3rd generation HiLux 4x4 pickup know to exist today! You will never find another 4x4 Japanese truck as nice again! Still shows low mileage of 73k and is understood to be actual.

This truck comes from a one-owner from California who purchased the truck new from Toyota of Sacramento. At the time, the truck had a dealer installed camper with carpet installed and remained on the truck until recently. The second owner purchased the truck from the original owner in 2018. The new owner was a passionate Toyotaenthusiast who performed a stunning professionalnut and boltrestoration from top to bottom, which no details were skipped or overlooked. The extreme high quality condition of the restoration is truly show winning and makes this Toyota appear and feel showroom new! Please see the detailed photos and video!

Made in Hamura, Japan, this -ton 4x4 sport truck was originally sold at Toyota of Sacramento in Sacramento, California. It has a deluxe standard bed (still original bed) and a regular cab versus the extended cabs that are so popular today. Quick note to California buyers, this particular truck still retains California smog equipment and sticker, this truck still can beregistered and road driven in the state of California. This situation is a rarity as some of these trucks that didn't rust away are still missing smog equipment!

Finished in correct Toyota White (code 33) with the attractive 1980's flare of the tri-tone (gold, umber, brown) striping, the trucks paint and trim are in like new condition overall, as are the glass panels, exterior trim and vehicle lights.

The body is straight and solid, which is literally impossible to find today with the 3rd and 4th generation HiLux trucks. The original bed cargo area is extremely tidy; there used to be a camper shell and carpet kit back there but nothing else has been in the bed but air! The complete original bed and tailgate are in pristine condition and the bed still has the original Y81 factory sticker. The black, front bumper is in excellent shape just like everything else, the engine bay is extremely tidy and the battery appears new.

In the engine bay which all appears brand new is Toyotas 2.4L SOHC four-cylinder engine (code 22R), buttoned to a four-speed manual transmission (code L45) and4x4 RF1A transfer case.

The rolling stock here are BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A light truck tires, size 31x10.50R15 at all four corners. Each tire is wrapped around factory gold alloy wheels with front locking hubs. The tires are in very good order while the wheels are in excellent shape. This truck is equipped with factory front power disk brakes.

Inside, the trucks tan vinyl interior (code LU41) is in excellent shape split bench seat, rear slider window, headliner, two-spoke steering wheel, instrument panel, door liners, console and the factory AM/FM stereo.

In North American markets the Hilux (known as the pickup) saw the use of four-wheel drive. It had a solid front axle and leaf suspension. The body saw a redesign that included single round headlights and a less complex body. This new 4WD setup featured a gear driven RF1A transfer case. This tr
