Here’s an interesting vehicle for anyone who’s ever wanted their pickup to stand out a bit from the norm. It’s a 2013 Toyota Tacoma, and it’s been converted to right-hand drive — and it’s currently offered with just over 130,000 miles for $13,200 from a private seller in the Atlanta area.
I’ll start with the basics: This right-hand-drive Tacoma isn’t just someone’s random pet project to make their vehicle look Japanese, or possibly British. Instead, this truck is used for rural mail delivery, where right-hand drive is useful — largely because the postal employee must reach out the window to drop mail in a mailbox, and that can’t be easily done in a left-hand-drive vehicle.
Unfortunately, the downside of a right-hand-drive postal conversion is that it isn’t exactly a professional job that looks like it came from the factory. Instead, most right-hand-drive postal conversions are exactly like this one: A second steering column and a second group of pedals is installed on the right side of the interior, and the steering wheel is attached to the original steering column with a giant belt. The passenger seat has also been removed in favor of empty space and a large board — better for mail storage on a rural route.
So while this may not be the factory-made right-hand-drive Toyota Tacoma of your dreams, it’s still a lot more unusual than virtually all of what’s out there today — the perfect pickup for someone who wants to stand out from the crowd. Or, ya know, someone with a rural mail route. Find a 2013 Toyota Tacoma for sale
