Remember the other car star of the Back to the Future films? Yes, the Toyota ton 4x4 Pickup. While we do not have a clone of Marty McFlys Toyota Club Cab, this example is close. MotoeXotica Classic Cars presents this 1981 Toyota pickup, a oneowner, California truck and probably the nicest early 1980s Toyota truck left
Made in Hamura, Japan, this ton truck was originally sold at Toyota of Sacramento in Sacramento, California. It has a deluxe standard bed and a regular cab versus the extended cabs that are so popular today.
Finished in Toyota White (code 33), the trucks paint and trim are in very good condition overall, as are the glass panels and vehicle lights.
The body is straight and solid, the 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 black, front bumper is in excellent shape, the engine bay is extremely tidy and the battery appears new.
In the engine bay is Toyotas 2.4L SOHC fourcylinder engine (code 22R), buttoned to a fourspeed manual transmission (code L45).
The rolling stock here are BFGoodrich AllTerrain 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.
Inside, the trucks tan vinyl interior (code LU41) is in excellent shape split bench seat, carpet, headliner, twospoke 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 fourwheel 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 transfer case is unique in that its lowrange reduction portion can be replicated, using what some refer to as a dual or triple transfer case. This results in a much lower overall gear ratio.
Competition to this Toyota pickup in 1981 included Chevrolets LightUtility Vehicle (LUV), Datsuns 720 Truck, Fords Courier, Dodges Ram 50, Isuzus Faster, Mazdas B2000, Mitsubishis truck and Plymouths Arrow truck.
