1998 Toyota Hiace

Available for: $12,795

Stock #6260

We love our Japanese haulers at the dealership and there are so many reasons why. Vans like this 1998 Toyota are affordable, capable and reliable. Finished in a striking Pearl White (042) over Nightshade Black, this eight seater is adorned with factory rainguards, refinished alloys, aggressive privacy tint and a subtle OEM rear spoiler. Aside from some light dings, chips and scuffs this HiAce is in good nick overall, and is fresh off a recent service. Offered with a scant 119k verified and documented miles on the clock, this turbodiesel beast is barely broken in. Outfitted with a plush cabin and FullTime 4WD, this ride would be an ideal year-round cruiser, campsite allstar, or practical people mover. A Japanese Classic like this is too useful to pass up and is turn key ready to rock!

The cabin is spacious, accommodating and filled with premium materials. The dashboard lacks any cracking or fading and offers a clear view of the road ahead. The driver benefits from a tilt adjustable steering column to find the ideal driving position and the power folding mirrors, electric locks, and power windows all work in typical Toyota fashion. The gray upholstery is in good nick and lacks any major rips, stains or tears. The front and middle rows offer ample room for occupants and the factory third row seating was removed to create a large cargo hold in the rear, ideal for hauling gear or creating a bespoke camping build out in the back! The sliding door opens wide for easy cabin access and soft closes to ensure it isn't left ajar, draining your brand new battery. Rear occupants also have a pair of integrated ottomans which are located on the bottom of front seat backs. A digital climate control system keeps cabin temps at bay, with cold A/C and hot heat on standby, and a modern Carrozzeria touch screen head unit doles out your tunes with Bluetooth functionality. Sound quality is above average overall and with US FM compatibility you need not swap it out for another unit immediately. Privacy tint adorns the rear to keep any prying eyes away from your belongings, the headliner is tidy, and the carpets have been sheathed by some funky OEM carpet mats. Dual SRS airbags are standard and keep both forward occupants safe, and an OEM tray table can slide from front to back for optimal road trip accessibility. This cabin is in above average shape overall, and there's little to pick apart!

Closely related to its cabover Hiace stablemate, this KCH46 boasts more standard safety features such as the aforementioned standard dual front SRS airbags and a full frontal crash structure. The longer wheelbase pays dividends on the freeway as well, allowing for a more stable overall ride. The 1KZ-TE under the bonnet is fresh off an oil and filter service and churns to life with the twist of a key. A new 12v battery was installed which will ensure this rig starts in the dead of winter and a new fuel filter was taken care of as well. Keeping all lubricant from the oil change internal, we sealed everything up with a new valve cover gasket up top. The 3.0L is linked to a stout automatic gearbox that makes great use of the prodigious low end torque. Off the line this baby really moves and doing 75MPH sustained on the freeway is easy work for this 1K. Sending power to all four wheels, excursions off the beaten path are simple and straightforward, and we replaced both rear shocks to keep the suspension compliant over road imperfections. The power steering is feather light and easy to operate, and the brakes clamp down hard when called upon. The alloys are freshly refinished and wrapped in brand new Falken rubber, coupled with a fresh alignment, they'll take you anywhere and should provide tens of thousands of miles of on or off-road smiles!
