1994 Toyota LiteAce FXV
Stock Number: 4550
Japanese people haulers have an abundance of personality and offer a unique take on transport. This 1994 Toyota LiteAce is a fine example, boasting a torquey 2.2L turbodiesel, 4WD, a manual transmission, and room for all your friends. At only 71K verified miles, and finished in a snazzy Dhalia Blue two-tone (22U), the body is in good shape other than your minor scuffs, dings, and chips associated with normal use. Up to date on maintenance, and legally imported, this van is a distinctly good value while being surprisingly fun to drive.
The interior really shines in this van, and with comfy seating for seven and all of their cargo, what's not to like. Visibility is great with this cab-over design and the low lying dash is in good shape, without any cracks or discoloration. The switchgear is all at hand, and two dedicated climate zones are available if desired. The A/C and heat work, and additional ventilation comes from power windows and dual sunroofs that open with the press of the switch. The white linen doilies have protected the gray upholstery well, and it's obvious this cabin has been cared for. Seating is comfortable in all rows and the second-row captain's chairs are great at keeping those pesky little tykes separated. If you wish to camp out under the stars the seats fold flat changing the cockpit into a full sleeping compartment. The area behind the rear seats is sizable and more storage is available below the center console and within the glovebox. The headliner is immaculate and the door cards and carpets are in good nick. It even has the original owner's manuals in the glovebox.
Mid-mounted for optimal balance, the little 2.2L 3C-T diesel sits midship between the driver and front passenger and feeds power to all four wheels. Benefiting from a fresh semi-synthetic oil service, she turns over with a twist of the key and sets into a constant idle. A new alternator makes sure constant voltage runs to the battery, keeping this little Toyota chugging. The manual transmission, a five-speed is rare to find in a van. It shifts well and with fewer parts, it's simpler than the automatic and delivers better efficiency. A low-speed transfer case is available if the going gets tough and the TEMS adjustable suspension does a wonderful job of sorting out the bumps. The differentials have also received new fluid, saving on future maintenance costs. The power steering is light and the brakes confident, and the factory wheels are wrapped in new Falkens all around.
An affordable 4WD manual van just doesn't exist in today's automotive landscape! This LiteAce fits the bill and is ready to take you on any adventure stateside, backed by Toyotas reputation for reliability.
