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, but this example is even more rare and desirable then Martys pickup but still captures the impressionable pop culture that these little Toyota sport trucks had on the US market when new in the late 1970s and 1980s. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is excited to present one of the only documented Toyota authorized Wolverine pickups still known to exist today You will never find another documented Toyota Wolverine 4x4 like this again

So what exactly is a Toyota Pickup Wolverine 4x4?

Before Toyota offered a factory 4x4 pickup truck for the American market they partnered with Offroad Marketing of Garden Grove, California who was to produce and be the distributor for the Toyota authorized 4x4 Wolverines to be sold at dealers across the county. They performed the conversion work atSpecialized Automotive Engineering of Van Nuys California and then eventually expanding to Conversions Unlimited of Sunnyvale, California and Tolsdorf Industries of Putman, Connecticut for the east coast dealers. Wolverines could only be purchased new from authorized Toyota dealers.

On this particular Toyota Wolverine 4x4, theWolverine Package cost $3,922.00 plus the cost of the truck of $5,092 for a total of $9,020 Included with the conversion package was aSpicer 30 drive axle with semielliptic leaf springs designed by SAE, SAE locking hubs, Dana 20 2speed transfer case, Wolverine speedometer adaptor, Wolverine skidplate, factory front disk brakes with Wolverine 4x4 hubadaptors, Wolverine custom aluminum oil pan, optional Wolverine rear tube bumper, Wolverine front grill guard, California Step Side Bed and the stock power steering was relocated by Wolverine to front of the drive axle.

We recently purchased this truck from a town 100 miles south of our dealership in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. This truck was sold new at Cape Girardeau and remained in the same town with only two owners until 2019. Sold new off the showroom floor on 01/31/1979 at Wescoat Motor Co. to a local landscaper,Harry Bertrand, Jr. After owning the Wolverine for many decades, he sold the truck to another local resident in 2002 and we purchased the truck from that gentleman this year in 2019.
