Second Gen (84-88) Toyota Pickup Model

Asked this in the "Post Your Crawlers" thread, but does anyone know of a second gen Toyota pickup (84-88) or first gen 4Runner (84-89) model of any sort?

There are first gen pickups and third gen pickup / second gen 4Runners available, but nada that I have found for the square wheelwell type. I've looked a bit in the aftermarket shells, but I'm not sure if I am missing something somewhere.

Would prefer a 1/24 or 1/25 scale model, but would consider just about anything - well, larger than a Matchbox...

One that I remember (late 80's-early 90's vintage) was the Kyosho Big Brute. It was a 1/10th scale if I remember right.

Found this on google images...

Probably hard to find a spare body for one but you never know.... Ebay has one for $500!

Ok, since nobody seems to understand the "generations" of Toyota pickups - one of these:



Squared out wheelwells instead of the rounded ones of the earlier eighties ('79 to '83) and later ones ('89+).

Standard cab, extended cab, or '84-'89 4Runner doesn't matter.

The Big Brute sort of has the right look, but isn't detailed enough.

oo you should have said you want a blue one from the start..

aoshima made that body style, I know I have seen one before I could be wrong on aoshima, or it could be long discontinued and impossible to find..

Hmmm... Searched what I could on the RCCrawler site with Google. But even then kept running into "you need to sign up" when I'd try to follow links.

Still not finding much of anything except that there are even more third gens and first gens out there than I previously realized.

Unless you build it, there isn't a detailed 2nd gen truck body out there.
This guy is building a 1st Gen runner out of a Tamiya hilux body. There is a serious amount of talent going on here.
http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=24531
As far as I know, Aoshima never made a 2nd gen either, unless sloppy is referring to a 2nd gen Runner. IF they had made one, I would have found one and bought it when I was building a 1/24 scale rig.

Yeah, from the searching I've done I was pretty sure that none of the main mfgs had made one - but wasn't sure if anyone was making aftermarket bodies in small runs that I had missed.

Here is a guy who did a 4Runner out of a first gen pickup: http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/showthread.php?t=126772

Did a pretty nice job on the shell. Might have to follow the guy on the link you posted to see how his comes together. Although, after getting the body right he should do resin casts from it. There seems to be enough of a market for it.

Those aren't SECOND generation Toyotas! We know 1st Gens are easy to find.

I'm thinking that if one of those guys building the second gen cabs would pop a mold when he has it finished he'd have a ready market for them.

This guy started with a 1st gen body and turned it into a 4runner. Same process could be used for a pickup.

Hope that helps?

If you'll pay attention to previous posts, there are two other threads posted that did just that.

This is another modified bruiser/mountaineer/hilux (1st gen) into a 2nd gen. Doesn't really help the OP in his search, but is another example of how to make a 2nd gen out of something else. After reading this, I just have to say WOW.
