1994 Daihatsu Hijet EF-CS

Up for sale here is a good condition 1994 Daihatsu Hijet 'kei' mini truck. This little truck was imported in 2015, and comes with the paperwork get it titled/registered in the US. Many states allow these trucks to be registered once they become antiques (25 years old), which happens to be next year for this one. As a 1994 model, it is already exempt from US emissions standards (which occurs at 21 years old). Please check with your state or municipality for further registration details. I live in Virginia, and it could be registered here as antique once it turns 25 years old.
This S83P Hijet has a 660 cc, 3 cylinder gas motor with a 4-speed manual transmission and it is 4 wheel drive (4wd). It also has the air conditioning unit add-on. It runs very good. This truck is more of a workhorse than a show piece. Also, while the Hijet is great around town - it definitely isn't a US highway vehicle. You wouldn't really want to go much faster than 50-55 mph in mini trucks. Please carefully look at the pictures to get sense for the minor dents, dings, and scratches. Appears to have typical wear/tear for a vehicle this old.
This truck just had a great deal of maintenance done, which means she's ready to go:
- New water pump- New thermostat- New coolant, and flushed system- Inspected and re-tensioned the timing belt / timing belt tensioner- Inspected v accessory belts- Fresh oil change and US oil filter- Inspected air filter
Here are three videos of the truck running and driving: https://youtu.be/3Y6nJlpAsE, https://youtu.be/7oEprIwP-s, https://youtu.be/oh93DlM9plc .
The only thing you will want to keep an eye on with this Hijet is the tires. 3 of the 4 have very good tread (good for off-road, farm use), but all 4 have some dry-rot. All the tires are ok for off-road use, but if you're putting it on the road consistently at speed, then I recommend you replace the tires. That size runs for about $40-50 each.
Please contact Steve with any questions, or if you want to setup an appointment to test drive it. If you want/need additional pics, just let me know. I'm also happy to send pics of the Japanese title and import paperwork. Truck comes with this paperwork and a service manual. The Japanese VIN # is S83P-140223.
