Junkyard Find: 1978 Toyota Truck

The Toyota Hilux pickup truck first hit the streets in 1968, shoving aside flimsier trucks based on the Corona and Crown within a few years. While the Hilux (or “Hylux”) name got a bit of marketing use by Toyota in North America, this truck was known here as, simply, the Truck. I found this well-worn-but-unrusted […] The post Junkyard Find: 1978 Toyota Truck appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota Hilux Invincible 50 Black Edition Marks Half a Century of Toughness

Junkyard Find: 1981 Toyota Pickup, Scrap Hunter Edition

Toyota Hilux “Invincible 50” Celebrates 50 Years of Success

Toyota Hilux pickup trucks are legendary for the durability and reliability they have demonstrated around the world since 1968. In the U.S., the Hilux name was dropped in the mid-1970s in favor of simply “pickup” until the arrival of the Tacoma name in 1995. The current Hilux shares some things in common with the U.S.-market Tacoma, but for the most part it’s a completely different truck.

Watch Little Remote-Controlled Cars Tow a Toyota Hilux (W/Video)

Toyota has made a short video demonstrating that, yes, 15 miniature toy cars can tow a real-life pickup truck. Taking inspiration from a similar stunt performed in the 1980s, Toyota strapped up its Hilux pickup to a group of Tamiya Bruiser remote-controlled trucks. With a gross vehicle weight of more than 7,000 pounds, the Hilux has become heavier over the years, making the towing challenge even more difficult for the little cars this time around. Fortunately, each Bruiser can create 4.4 pounds ...
