1992 Hilux SSR-X
The Toyota Hilux Surf is one of the most desirable body-on-frame vehicles offered here at Japanese Classics. The versatile model is great as a family hauler, overlander, or even a daily commuter. This 1992 Toyota Hilux Surf is fresh off of a recent oil and filter service and has a measly 70K verified and documented miles on the chassis. Finished in a one-off Fire Engine Red, the body is in great shape aside from minor rock chips and scuffs associated with normal driving. Highlighted with rain guards and a custom front grille, the exterior gives off a rugged, purposeful aesthetic. Well-equipped, spacious, determined, and affordable, this off-road-ready rig is a bonafide Japanese Classic and is turn-key ready to rock!
We love the simple, spartan interiors and the view of the road ahead in these Hilux's which are commanding and unobstructed. This five-seater is trimmed in a light grey cloth, with striped inserts, that lacks any major damage such as rips, stains, or tears. The seats are soft to the touch and comfortable for long-distance traveling or commuting around town. The carpet lacks any major abuse, and the Hilux OEM floor mats are included in this Surf for the next owner. Although the dash has a few notable cracks above the gauge cluster, and a minor scuff below the passenger side air vent, the interior has been kept tidy and well maintained overall. This SSR-X comes nicely equipped with plenty of power amenities for convenience. Power windows, locks, mirrors, and cruise control are fully operable as expected, and the driver benefits from a tilt steering column and lumbar support to attain maximum comfort. The A/C blows cold and was recently recharged here at the dealership, and the heat is ready for the colder season to come. The audio was removed prior to making it here stateside but allows you to decide on which American unit you prefer. The headliner is in good shape, with no sagging or stains to report, and the power sunroof will invite a fresh breeze and sunlight into the spacious cabin when you demand it. The rear stadium-style seating folds down to give you more cargo space for your trip to lowes or recovery gear for the trails. An electric rear window is a fan favorite feature that is standard on these Surfs.
Toyota's reliable V6 is bulletproof and has been proven here stateside, with US examples logging over 300k on the engine. The 3VZ-E is no stranger to enthusiasts and is reliable, peppy, and inexpensive to repair. Paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission, the acceleration is smooth, and merging at highway speeds is no issue at all. The TEMS adjustable suspension on this Surf is predictable over potholes and bumps, which also makes off-roading enjoyable. We have replaced the rear transmission seal, front inner tie rods, outer tie rods, and adjustment sleeves so the driveline and chassis maintains that solid Toyota feel. The brakes are responsive to the touch and quickly bring this rig down to a stop when called upon. To complete the visit to our shop this Surf has been outfitted in four brand new Falken all-terrain tires. The new rubber delivers plenty of grip on loose surfaces and will last for tens of thousands of miles to come. Whether you prefer on-road or off the beaten path, this Hilux Surf is one all-around rig to consider!
