These double Cab Hilux LN107 pickups have a reputation that precedes them. Nearly bulletproof, indestructible, and unkillable, are all adjectives used to describe these legendary trucks, but we are just fine calling it a Japanese Classic. This 1995 example is finished in a classic Evergreen Pearl Metallic (751) and is set off by a set of third-generation Hilux Surf alloy wheels with a set of grippy Falkens. The body and paint have aged well aside from some scuffs, dings, chips, and touch-ups from regular use in Japan. This rig benefits from a slate of recent services, including converting the problematic and expensive dual-mass flywheel to the more desirable OEM solid flywheel upgrade. This diesel-powered rig is offered with a mere 168k verified and documented miles. In Toyota speak, that's barely broken in, as these unstoppable trucks regularly log half a million miles on the trusty 3L engine. For those looking for a practical, collectible, and capable beast of a midsize pickup, this is surely it! As a daily driver, mall crawler, or backwoods bruiser, this Toyota would be great, and it won't last long!

The cabin isn't as spartan as you might think, and actually includes ice-cold air conditioning and an optional manual sunroof for additional ventilation. It doesn't stop there as the electric locks, power windows, and mirrors make daily use more enjoyable. A Pioneer headunit with auxiliary inputs modernizes the audio system and sounds good if you had a long trip planned. The upholstery is made of durable gray textured cloth. Aside from some damaged stitchwork damage to the driver's seat, the material lacks any major rips, stains, or tears. They are comfy on long trips and there is plenty of legroom, shoulder space, and headroom compared to the US version of the truck. The door cards, carpets, and headliner have resisted major abuse over the years. Even the OEM sunshade visor is on hand, which is uncommon, as many were tossed out prior to import. As a whole, it's really hard to complain about this cabin and we think the next owner will be pleased with its overall condition.

The Hilux is a simple truck and that was a part of its success and key to its longevity. Parts are inexpensive, as these models were sold globally, so they aren't hard to find. This SSR model is powered by a 2.8-liter four-banger. Fresh off a recent service, the 3L (engine code) starts up promptly thanks to two new 12v batteries. The powerplant benefits from a new engine air filter to maximize fuel economy and is connected to a five-speed manual gearbox. The gearbox feels great, and is as connected as a truck can be. Rowing through the gears is pretty fun and diesel braking along a downhill is effective and will elongate the life of the brakes! While it won't win any drag races it accelerates adequately to get up to highway speeds, and can sustain them just fine. If you encounter some bad weather, the driver can select a low gear setting and get out of the muck. The suspension can handle the rigors of daily use and abuse and the independent front pays dividends on the tarmac. The brakes have all been refurbished since this five-seater arrived stateside. One of our trained technicians has replaced the front brake pads and the Toyota can safely get down to manageable speeds if you need to reel her in a bit. Lastly, brand new Falken all-terrain tires were mounted and balanced at all four corners. The new rubber looks tremendous but more importantly will provide plenty of grip for tens of thousands of miles to come. They also reduce the road noise and it should be mentioned there are very few squeaks or rattles, even on rougher pavement, as this LN107 is very composed!
