40K km 1983 Toyota Deluxe Standard Cab SB SR5 Pick-Up 4WD
Custom – Museum/Show Quality
Collector Car Canada presents a very special item in the form of this 1983 Toyota SR5 Custom Pick-Up Truck showing under 40,000 km and extensive modifications to bring it to show quality. It is brought by the ten-year owner of the truck, who has treated it gently – always garaging it and using very sparingly in only the fairest weather. Highlights of the modifications are a professionally assembled “cab-over” style front clip set-up; rear dump box conversion – both operated by hydraulics; lift kit; and virtually all exposed unpainted metal triple-plated in chrome. This truck is a one-of-a-kind show piece and ready to compete for hardware before the pickiest of show judges.

Included in the gallery is a 2020 appraisal by a well-known registered appraiser in the Ottawa area for a value of $199,000. The appraiser’s worksheet grades twenty areas on its cover sheet, seventeen are excellent while the remaining three are very good to excellent. In the words of the appraiser: “Vehicle was a no expense spared custom build, more of a labour of love. In short, 90% of vehicle was disassembled modified/upgraded/chromed and reassembled. All with extreme attention paid to top workmanship and detailing of said vehicle. All of this has made said vehicle truly a stand-alone custom show vehicle.”
The truck was refinished in blue from its original yellow. Paint work was professionally done with all panels reconditioned, modified and reassembled, featuring custom artwork on the hood – in the words of the appraiser: “no rust, dents, chips or scratches”. The exterior also features a chrome bush bar, chrome roll bar with four accessory lights, chrome tubular side steps, chrome rear step with trailer hitch, chrome exhaust and a chrome grille. Chrome rims are mounted with a pair of BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A tires on the rear and Goodyear Wranglers up front. While to the uninitiated, this might seem like a mismatched set, owner advises that these two pairs were chosen by the owner for rear traction and front rock-gripping, not that anyone expects this piece to see any off-road duty. The pristine box comes with a cover. Since the appraisal was done, the seller notes some imperfections in the finish. These are exhibited in the gallery, photos 150 – 153.
On the primarily black interior, the custom touches continue. Glove box door shows artwork matching that on the exterior hood. Bucket seats, steering wheel, some gauges, shifter knobs and hydraulic levers have been procured from the aftermarket. Pod instrumentation is stock, featuring km/h speedometer, km six-digit odometer, tachometer, fuel and temperature gauges. Door skins are custom and the battery has been relocated to a space behind the passenger seat while a fire extinguisher is installed hand beneath the glove box with a sunroof overhead. In the words of the appraiser: “all of the interior components in excellent condition, has been extremely well maintained. All has been reconditioned and/or replaced. In like new condition. All interior components operational. No rips, burns or tears.”
The original 2.4 litre four-cylinder 22R engine remains in place, good for 96 horsepower (4800 RPM) and 129 lb.-ft. of torque (2800 RPM) when new. The 22R is mated to a five-speed manual to get the power to all four wheels. The engine bay’s centrepiece is a chromed air cleaner with extensive further chrome to match. In the words of the appraiser: “Original block matching numbers”; “strong running engine no knocking. No fluid seepage.” The engine oil was changed in October 2021 and the truck has been stored since.
The underside of the truck is where the modifications really shine, in both literal and figurative senses. Triple plate chroming is beyond comprehensive. The undercarriage features the original floor plans, frame rails have been reinforced, a lift kit is in place and fully operational. In the words of the appraiser: “No rust spots, no perforations. Extremely well maintained/preserved.” One thing the owner would do if he were keeping the truck is to refinish and re-chrome a few leaf springs where some overfilled coolant sprayed resulting in some surface rust as shown in the gallery. There is also an area on the gas tank showing peeling chrome.
