This was a marketing vehicle for my company Torfab.com - I’m selling this truck because we are moving to a new platform for the upcoming season. It has about 10,000 Kilometers on it currently, and will have more by the time it’s sold as I will continue to take it to events. This is an absolutely sweet cruiser, and someone will love this truck. It’s been great to us, and continues to be a fun and enjoyable cruiser to bring to events. This truck will be featured in 4WD Toyota Owners magazine over the summer, because it’s so unique and such a thorough build.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Shipping will be at buyers expense, test drives can be arranged in Everett, WA. We drove this truck to Moab last month and it performed flawlessly the whole time, so if you want to fly in and drive it home I would encourage it.

I would like to say thank you to Tor.. and he wasn't kidding , All I can say is I got one hell of a deal on the truck! He seriously down played the vehicle in the description and left out quite a bit of details. Had I not been raised around a dad that restored Model A Fords, myself being a helicopter mechanic/ crew chief and auto mechanic and also done a resto mod that took over ten years to complete on a 1971 Datsun 510 that won JCCS. All helps me understand and appreciate what I have in my possession .

If you guys have never had the pleasure of riding in or driving a rig like this , I highly recommend you put it high on your list . My best description of this truck is it feels and drives much like a AMG G55 , yet your not afraid to actually drive it off road like it was originally built for. I have been smiling for hours literally. I let my girl drive back to Seattle in traffic without a hiccup ...she loves it too.


I got a couple minor issues to fix on her and off we go on a adventure . I've been trying to buy a nice cruiser for quite some time , and every time I find one , they are gone already or the owner is really still to in love with their car. Patience and luck prevailed !

I tell so many people how awesome a v8 is in a Cruiser. Most scoff at it and say they would never own or drive one. They are the ones that have never driven a nice and well converted v8 Cruiser.

By the way, I restored classic Nissan Patrols for years and owned them for many more. Love 510's and have family and close friends who own very nice and built up ones. ;)

Congrats on the truck, it looks awesome!!

Thanks for the well wishes .

Patrols are awesome as well. I almost bought a 1995 diesel in El Salvador a couple years ago that belonged to a Arena politician from that era. It only had 60k oroninal miles. I had already paid for it but the people selling did not have the original title and wanted me to apply for lost title ...so the deal unwinded. They were middle manning the deal and because of the language barrier the trust dwindled as well.
