1987 Toyota Pickup R22 propane from North America
Best bang for your buck
It's a dream to have this baby pickup. With it running on LP, it is just too cold blooded for mid-plains winters. I got frostbite in my toes on my way to school, even with the heater on full blast and re using the air in the cab...
And it has no power at all. I have to pay attention to the wind all the time. With even the slightest breeze, it means the difference between 60 (normal without wind) and 45 (10 mile per hour headwinds).
One can tell it's for little guys, because I'm 6' 1" and I just about did not fit in it, even with the seat as far back as it could go.
The propane, as cool as it is, it's impractical... It's hard to find a place to fill up at. And it's a bit different to fill. And a bit scary. I don't know what would happen if I was to roll.
And of course the bed sucked! It had rust holes all over the place! (might be why my mileage sucks too)
If you can get over no power, rust holes, and a bad heater, it would be the best pickup for you.
This in my second car (first was a 1998 Geo Metro LOL). This pickup had great handling for no power steering and could go anywhere I wanted it to go! I love it so much; the clearance is great and it works pretty well on the dust dirt roads I live on. The 4x4 was almost never needed, because it does so well in H2. And the propane kit that is in it is not fuel efficient, but it is really freaking cool to say that you have a propane burning pickup.
I have yet to do any major fixes to it. Best pickup of me and my friends' cars. I would get another in a heartbeat!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
