The JDM imports that we offer for sale, including this 1987 Toyota Hilux Surf 4WD, are 100% legal to own and operate in the USA. This is because they have been imported under the 25-year federal exemption from both NHTSA and EPA requirements. The necessary US Customs documents are included to successfully register and title this vehicle in the US.

This particular Hilux Surf 4WD is in great shape with a solid running turbo diesel engine, smooth shifting transmission, and minimal rust issues.

Mechanically the engine and drivetrain are functioning without any problems. The engine fires up, cold or hot, without issue and incorporates an idle bump dial for colder starting conditions. The idle is steady at all times and the gear changes are smooth and direct. The 4WD gearbox functions perfectly, and goes in and out of 4WD L & H with ease. The power band is similar to a 22R which likes to be driven at low RPMS. The 2L-T is a great engine, but is by no means a high performance engine. It's strengths lie in good MPG, simplicity, and longevity. Drivability is similar to a 22R. There is a minor oil leak originating from the transmission drain plug, a replacement washer is recommended. The front upper control arm bushings are blown out, and should be replaced. The truck has a slight steering input delay as a result of the blown out bushings. There are 20 service records starting from 1996 when the odometer read 63,803km, which also help to validate the mileage as true and correct. The timing belt was changed at 91,570km in 2000, and should be replaced soon. The oil was recently changed at 197k, and is good until 205k.

The exterior is very nice, and is very impressive for it's age. The worst of the imperfections are fading on the top surface of the removable top, two small rust bubbles underneath the fuel cap less than 1'' in size, peeling chrome finish on the front grill and side window trims, and a small scratch on the rear hatch underneath the license plate area. Otherwise the body has been nicely repainted to the point where you have to look very carefully todistinguishthat the paint is not factory original. The door seams match, the paint is smooth to the touch and glossy, the paint is even and the clear is very low on orange peel. The underside of the Hilux Surf is rust free in the critical areas; inside the wheel arches, along the frame rails, under the floor boards, and around suspension mounting points.

The interior is in decent shape, and is complete including the rear trim panels. The driver seat has small rips to the side bolster, the climate control face is cracked but still functional, the dash has a 5'' crack, the center console arm rest is worn down to foam, and the shift knob is cracked. Otherwise, there are no foul odors, the seats, door panels, carpet, and headliner are clean. And like it's US counterpart, the top is also removable.

This Hilux Surf features power windows, power mirrors, and power locks. The A/C turns on, but does not blow cold. The heater does work. The radio works, however it does not pick up the same frequency that US stations are on.

Driving this Hilux Surf is a unique experience, it chimes when you exceed 110km/hr (68mph), as if to say: "what's the rush buddy?". While driving this truck I tend to appreciate my surroundings more, and I feel as if I'm not in a rush to get anywhere fast. It's very clear that this truck comes from a different place, where speed is not always the emphasis.
