Hello again!

Another little truck followed me home!

A PK31 series Toyota 25, I'm thinking around early 1967 as the PK32 with the quad lights was from May 1967 and it's chassis number and my chart put it in there.

Running the 2P which starts and runs a treat. As you can see a little body work is required but over all a good example of a very rare truck here downunder. I do need to rewood the tray, darn termites!

Genuine 42,000 miles on the clock, still drives but clutch is very ordinary. Enjoy!

Geez Ben a nut? That's commitment there!!!! Yeah, couldn't see the old girl be crushed. It does need a reasonable amount of rust repair to the roof but to still be operational(minus the brakes!!) it deserves to retire properly at my place.

It's sorta funny in a country were we love the ute to death, but the poor old Japanese truck doesn't get the same recognition as the Holden or Ford of the same age, I'm a thinking this is far cooler!

Mate, it actually was a delivery truck it's whole working life at a lumber yard! Retired 12 years ago and sat in a back yard with a Corona!

In a completely bizarre coincidence I got an email this week from a guy in Ballarat who has just acquired one of these to restore! He was wondering if any one in my car club (toyota car club of australia, vic) had any information on them.

I will email him the link to this post so he can get in contact with you :)

We all could thank BIG 3 for us not getting any of these nice little trucks here in USA.

But I always thought they used the metric system in Austraila... Why is the speedo in MPH?

Yeah, technically 1966 was the official swap to the metric system, but it seems manufacturers weren't needed to swap until 1972. I even have a 1974 Capella still sporting the MPH speedo and a 1971 1300 in KPH, so it's really a mystery on the exact time.
