1978 Toyota HJ45 Description

GR Auto Gallery is thrilled to offer this pristine, fully restored, highly desirable 1978 Toyota HJ45 Pickup for consideration. The HJ45 is a diesel powered, long wheel variant of the 40 series that came available in "Troopy" and Pickup variants.
The example offered here was recently treated to a complete, frame off, nut and bolt restoration where a tremendous amount of detail was executed from start to finish. The truck is powered by its bullet proof 3.6 liter inline 6 cylinder diesel engine, 4 speed manual transmission and Toyota's go anywhere 4 wheel drive system.
The presentation of this HJ45 is amazing. It is finely finished in 6H9 Olive Grey exterior paint over grey interior. Every square inch of this HJ 45 has been restored to the highest standards. All the hardware is stainless steel or properly anodized. The exterior paint is stunning in color and application, the interior is restored as new using correct seat material, newly upholstered door panels, new rubber floor new knobs, pulls and trinkets, original refurbished steering wheel and column, all new wiring etc. Under the hood is highly detailed and correct in finish and appearance and features all new lines, hoses, anodized fuel injection lines, etc. The frame and undercarriage is fully restored as new using all new suspension components, rebuilt steering box and componentry, fully detailed frame, new correct hardware etc. This FJ 45's rides on 16 inch steel wheels and factory hubcaps skinned with new oversized Mickey Thompson 305/70/16 tires.
Mechanically this truck starts, runs and drives with no issue. The motor is torquey and powerful, the transmission shifts smoothly in all gears and the transfer case engages properly in high and low when needed.
The Vintage SUV and truck market remain on fire and the Toyota marque has earned the highest respect among enthusiasts, collectors and investors alike. Premium examples as the one offered here are in world demand and a very unique piece to add to your investment portfolio.
