Toyota’s Hilux Surf SUV’s are some of the most recognizable 4 door utility vehicles in the world. In the U.S. market, we know them as 4Runners, but the JDM market models have a few things that really make them stand apart, and this example is one of them. This particular 1997 Toyota Hilux Surf SSR-X is in pristine condition, rating a shocking 4.5B at auction! On the exterior, original Silver Pearl paint shines like new, and we could only find two rice grain sized rock chips along the front end. The Wheels are also in rarely seen condition as the 16 inch allows Toyota equipped them with from the factory were prone to corrosion. This Surf also has some high quality running boards that add to the usability of the large SUV. Around back, the spare tire is instead mounted beneath the body giving easy access to the trunk compared with the more cumbersome trunk mounted spares. Underneath the body is in amazing condition as you’d expect from such a highly rated vehicle, and we suspect it spent a good portion of its life out of the elements. On the inside we see that the vehicle was very well kept, proving the exterior condition isn’t too good to be true. The Blue-gray cloth seats have stood the test of time, and the color looks how Toyota intended it to from the factory. The Bolster is still intact, and the seats are very comfortable. All powered features still function without hitch, including but not limited to; all power windows, power rear window, Heating and A/C, and all relevant controls. Following the completely stock nature, even the original head unit is still factory original. Inside we also found metal OEM Toyota license plate frames for the Japanese market, and while they will not fit American plates, they are certainly a collectible item that shows the care this car has had during its life. What makes this Hilux Surf unique is its powertrain. This is an SSR-X model equipped with the legendary 1KZ-TE Turbo diesel engine and it has plenty of power to tackle any adventure, on road or off. The turbo diesel featured in this example was never offered on the American market, and its what make these JDM versions so special. The selectable 4WD adds to the capability of this renowned workhorse. Sitting at a breathtaking 15,995 verified miles, this Hilux is unlike any other you’ll find for sale. This 4.5B rating Hilux Surf is completely stock top to bottom, save for the wearable components or fluids that have been changed over the 26 years its been in commission. Overall this Hilux is rare and collectible piece, and it is Turnkey and ready to take on any of the adventures you’re prepared to throw at it! Grab it before there are no more in this condition left to get!
