1995 Hilux Surf TD SSR-X
Available for: $19,995
The Hilux Surf is one of our bestselling SUVs and these second generation models are becoming much harder to find. They are durable, capable, and parts are readily available here in the US. This 1995 SSR-X Surf's exterior has been freshly refinished in TRD Cavalry Blue (8W2) over factory silver and is offered with only 113k verified and documented miles. Set off by a set of OEM rain guards, a massive roof rack, and refinished OEM wheels this rig looks stellar. Aside from a few light scuffs and dings the body and paint are in great condition. Fresh off a recent service, this five-seat hauler would make for a unique daily driver, weekend trail toy, or family-friendly SUV. No matter your intentions this beautiful Japanese Classic is turn-key and ready for its next chapter here stateside.
Once inside the spacious cabin you’ll find the seats are trimmed in a rugged blue cloth that lacks any major rips, stains, or tears. The functional retro Pioneer head unit is not only old school cool but still delivers crisp and clear sound through the speakers. Above the radio sits a functional climate control system that currently delivers cold A/C on demand. The driver benefits from power locks, power windows, and power mirrors which make daily use enjoyable. Equipped with a functioning electric sunroof and power rear window, you can enjoy the upcoming brisk fall evenings. The carpet is in decent shape only showing some minor stains from normal daily use. The door cards and headliner show no notable imperfections ,other then minor lifting on the left rear arm pad, but overall they've held up extremely well. That’s not to say the interior is perfect, as dashboard has a few cracks above the gauge cluster, which is a common issue on older vehicles due to years of UV exposure. Still, at 25 years old it's obvious it's been cared for in a prior life and we think the next owner will agree.
The diehard Toyota enthusiasts get excited over the Hilux’s simple and well tested mechanicals. This 1KZ turbo diesel powered Surf is fresh off an oil and filter service and starts up promptly thanks to two new 12v batteries. We also installed a new valve cover gasket while we were servicing this SSR-X to keep the 3.0L turbo diesel topped up on oil. Torque is fed through a smooth shifting automatic transmission and the selective transfer case allows the driver to select between two and four-wheel-drive. 4WD low is also on hand when you decide the hit the trails. Behind the wheel, the brakes feel firm, and the power assisted steering is smooth and precise. Brand new Falken all-terrain tires have been mounted and balanced which reduces road noise while cruising and will perform well while having fun off-road.
