Autotrader Find: Imported 1989 Toyota Hilux


If you’re interested in a Toyota pickup, but you want something a little more exciting, look no further than this 1989 Toyota Hilux. That’s because this particular Toyota pickup is a Japanese import, featuring right-hand drive, cool 1980s graphics and a 4-door body style that wasn’t offered in North America.

Finished in red with a gray cloth interior, this Hilux really does check all the boxes for American shoppers interested in Toyota reliability without Toyota ubiquity. Yes, there’s the red exterior, the right-hand drive, the cool graphics and the 4-door body, but you also get a reliable diesel engine — one that was never offered in North America. And, amazingly, you get a truck that’s traveled just 42,000 miles, which is unheard of when it comes to used Toyota pickups.

You also get a truck that stands out from basically every other Toyota on the market, but you have to pay for it. This particular Hilux is offered for $30,000, which is (of course) huge money for a used Toyota truck, though this one seems to fit the criteria for a used Toyota truck that would bring that kind of money. The only real drawback for some shoppers is the right-hand drive configuration, since this truck was imported from the RHD Japanese market — but, of course, that will be a cool selling point to others.

If you’re interested, this Hilux is offered by a private seller in Mary Esther, Florida, on the Florida panhandle just east of Pensacola.
