New (very old) hilux RN36 SWB - chasing info

Postby bill91817 on Thu, 29 Nov 2018 8:58 +0000

Hi guys

I have just inherited (of sorts) an RN36 Short wheel base hilux (1980). Its a little tired but completely original down to the factory boom box AM radio!. I have heard mixed stories of the origins of the SWB - someone told me that Toyota Australia brought in 200 of these as a trial to see how they would sell (as the first 4x4 Hilux in Australia) and someone else told me they were a limited run as a sports utility vs tradesmans car

Would be really interested to know if anyone has any info on how many came in and any other info on them



ps - its in a very rare colour for 1980............... yellow ! :lol:
