I traded it straight-up for my 1978 FJ45. The HZJ75 was a 1997, and when I got it in 2000 it was too new to import legally unless I spent big bucks having it converted and certified to DOT/NHTSA specs for a 1997. My friend I bought it from kept renewing the Alberta plates for me every year until we worked out the swap. That story appeared in Toyota Trails some time in 2005, entitled "The Worst Kept Secret".
It only had 14k miles on it when I got it, the speedo and odo read out in miles instead of kms and it was left hand drive. Very nice truck!
