Your family finally outgrew this beast?!? Best of luck with the sale on probably the best and most modified Delica I've seen!

It will be interesting to see if it makes it to the States or stay local...
120,000 miles ;D

thanks Mr. D....

Few answers to the Emails I have been getting....

Gets 22-24mpg usually when I take the time to calculated...

It happy cruising at 60mph and slow to climb mountains greater than 6% grades usually 40-45mph in third (I do not push it keeping exhaust temps under 900 on long climbs)...

I find it similar to a 22r for seat of the pants power (or lack of power)...

You can turn up the pump, turn up the turbo, add an intercooler on these 4D56T

Off road it is fun to drive and the cab-foward design rocks (only my Willys FC170 had a better view)...

New Price $8500

Few more answers to questions:

PARTS - uses same running gear as Montaro
-engine parts 4D56T is used in some mini-equipment (never had any issues getting parts)

I forgot the known problems...

Turbo leaks a little oil (typical for these turbo little drip)
Alignment needs tweaked (I will fix...this is due to all the new parts/bushings and someone doing the alignment without replacing worn parts)
Furnace needs the main jet cleaned (I will do as fall camping is upon us :) )...

It is a 25 year old truck I would drive anywhere tomorrow without worry...


Dream it build it
will try to tomorrow,,,,just got back from a week living on my work boat (not internet or cell service out there)



Have you figured your new build? I know you can't stand still for too long so it's just a matter of time...
