My friend gave me an information about this 1969 Unicab.
I still thinking for buying it or not. The owner want US$ 1.000 for this.
It's probably the KR85 with G151.
Engine is not running, the carburetor is gone.
Still have to check it, maybe next week.

Is it worth to build?
I don't have many literature for it, can someone help me?

I recognize that I have to search for pair of front mirror, front sign lamps and horn button. Front seats also looks different.

Regards,
Andy

It based on Isuzu Wasp frame. The size is between Sierra and SWB Trooper (or Rocky). Compare it with Willys Jeep and Toyota FJ40 on the side.

I would love to have one of those. For $1000, I would buy it and hope for the best!

I still don't have time to look and buy that Unicab. Usually nobody want Japanese 2WD RV, so that Unicab will stay there for another decade. But who knows..
The papers said that the unicab is out of the road since 2005.

Another Unicab that I found on my way to the office. The place is nearer than the blue one.

I've talk to the owner and take some photos. It's probably the early generation (1967-1968) with G130 engine.

The previous owner has change the soft door with hard panel door and paint it, but not in a good condition.

The recent owner said that he will keep the Unicab and try to restore it. I promise him to share many information to do the restoration.

I just found this page:

http://mobile.autonet.com.tw/cgi-bin/file_view.cgi?a6010498060123

I want one sooooo bad!! I wonder if I should contact my car shippers and see what bringing a car over from Indonesia would actually cost.

Never heard about the cost, but probably the bureaucracy is the hardest (and most expensive) things. :roll:

Yeah, the cost would likely be about $3000-$4000 USD just to ship to our port in LA. The extra costs would be getting the vehicle once found to the port in Indonesia, as well as any paperwork required to export said vehicle. Then you have a cultural barrier as well. Some countries have brokers that specialize in vehicle import/export. I'm not sure if Indonesia has services like that, but if they did, that would be the best option, short of going there and finding one and buying it and doing all the legwork yourself.

I never found a company who sells cars abroad.
Some people here has succeeded to sent old Piaggio Vespa to some foreign country. So I think it's possible to send a unicab.

At first I want to keep that blue Unicab for myself untill I can get money to restorate it. But I gave up and share the info about this unicab to someone, in my opinion, who able to restore it.

Here's some pics when he picked up that Unicab

I found some that still on the road, but they're not as good as this blue unicab. Most of them already converted with doors and loosing their accessories (decals, emblems etc)

Most of them are in Java Island, I never seen (or heard) somebody found it in Bali or other Indonesian Island.
