How much of the price is due to rarity, do you think? I'm guessing it would be $10K if it wasn't so rare.

Hi Matt - We wheeled together in Moab this year! Hard to put a price on it for sure but the parts alone are easily worth 10k I would think...

Absolutely. 1993 80 series aren't rare here, so to get an average one with a rebuilt head and a couple accessories would probably be around $6k. Throw in a premium for a diesel engine and that 10k number is pretty close. But....this isn't an 80, so yeah, premium price of some level is gonna happen.

Brett, it's a cool truck, wish I could buy it. I would recommend you dig up the history and figure out how it got here. Before most people will drop that kind of cash, they're going to want to see the importation paperwork to know its fully legal. Registration isn't enough to guarantee its legal. Some people won't care about that, but there are warnings all over the customs sites.

For example, there was a late model diesel prado that just sold for around that much, but it was a diplomat import = legal as far as we know. I believe the diplomat loophole has since been closed (diplomats are supposed to export the car and not sell them locally) but it could have been brought in before that.

Thanks Barry! It would fit right in with your current collection.

I do have some information to share with serious potential buyers, it is just not something I want to openly discuss on a public forum.

I'm sure you have piles of documentation.

I know I'd ask, I'd hate to be an example case when Customs crushes my illegally imported vehicle. Yikes!

It sure would! Think the wife would give up the 100 for it? Hmmm

Totally painful to watch, but it still looks like fun

That crane operator was obviously having fun with that. And that thing has more dexterity than the gumball machines in Chuck y cheese! I bet he can snatch a bolt off the ground.
And what a load of crap "not safe for american roads, we saved lives" that is. Really? That's the reason for crushing it? So, tell me Mr. customs guy, why isn't every vehicle without side air bags and crumple zones crushed, and for that matter, why even allow motorcycles or dump trucks on the road?
