While the 20R engine used to power Toyota’s 1970s vintage compact pickup trucks proved to be virtually bulletproof, the bodies supporting them tended to rust away due to the low-quality, unprotect steel used at the time. This survivor-quality 1977 Hilux Long Bed with only 76,900 original miles first listed for $12,500 in October 2020 on Craigslist near Charlottesville, Virginia avoided a similar fate.
