Hi guys
I have inherited (of sorts) a 1980 Toyota Hilux SWB RN36 -its technically a classic but probably not a car most would aspire to own!
Its a little tired but completely original down to the factory boom box AM radio!. I have heard mixed stories of the origins of the SWB - someone told me that Toyota Australia brought in 200 of these as a trial to see how they would sell (as the first 4x4 Hilux in Australia) and someone else told me they were a limited run off around 500 as a sports utility vs trades car

Would be really interested to know if anyone has any info on how many came in and any other info on them

cheers
Bill
