Curbside Outtake: Big Toyota Pickups, Then And Now

This old Toyota Land Cruiser pickup caught me slightly off guard, as I was a bit surprised at just how big it was, next to the Tundra there. Of course it’s sitting a bit tall, but still, it’s a good sized truck.

To the best of my knowledge, the LC pickup was not sold in the US. But I could be wrong. If so, they were extremely rare.

That looks like a later GM steering column and an aftermarket wheel, so most likely the venerable Chevy-inspired six has given way to a genuine Chevy V8.

So it’s appropriate that it’s sitting next to a Chevy pickup too.
