Toyota 87

A true statement of the turnaround in oil consumption, the small Japanese Titan!

The story behind:
Toyota first entered the pickup truck market in 1947 with the SB that was only sold in Japan and limited Asian markets. It was followed in 1954 by the RK (renamed in 1959 as the Stout) and in 1968 by the compact Hilux. With continued refinement, the Hilux (simply known as the Pickup in some markets <hence why this model is only known as Toyota 87>) became famous for being extremely durable and reliable. Many of these trucks from as early as the late 1970s and the 1980s are still on the road today, some with over 300,000 miles.

The looks:
Detailed and ready to go!
As with several hot wheels trucks, this one is tall,  bulkier and somewhat heavier. The vehicle is composed of a die cast metal body and a plastic chassis. The details on the lights and the windshield are plastic entirely as usual. The truck it has a nice details like the side mirrors and the details on the front and back of the truck makes this one a worthy addition. A true statement of the turnaround in oil consumption, the small Japanese Titan!
