Fantastic Mazda Bongo turbo-diesel van branded as a Ford Spectron XLT with original records and under 18,200 miles (29,316 km) this vehicle is well graded and should be a lot of fun. Hailing from Fukuoka, Japan this van is in quite nice condition.

Equipped with a 2-liter turbo diesel and 5-speed manual transmission for very efficient touring. Like many of the mid-size Japanese vans, the interior is very flexible – middle seats rotate 180 degrees so the middle seat can face forward or backward and fold down to make into a flat bed. Rear climate control and curtains for privacy.

Similar to the Mitsubishi Delica and the Toyota TownAce, the Mazda Bongo is a great platform for travels or urban hauling. Great alternative to a Volkswagen Vanagon providing lots of utility for the money.


Will arrive December and will share more info at that time.

Nice looking Toyota LiteAce GXL Wagon 4WD turbo-diesel with 2.2 liter turbo-diesel engine. Very clean inside and out  and coming from the pleasant climate of Osaka. Only 117k miles (189k km) this vehicle is well graded.

The Toyota LiteAce / Townace offers a lot of utility for the money. Nice flexible interior with middle seats that rotate 180 degrees to face forward or backward and the rear seats fold up for more cargo room. All rear seats fold-flat for sleeping or moving unusual loads.

Great alternative to a Volkswagen Vanagon or Eurovan and worth considering if you like the Mercedes Sprinter and Metris for a small fraction of the cost. Original records and great value for the money!


Subaru Impreza WRX GC8. From Yamaguchi and in nice condition with 195,631 kilometers or about 121k miles. Essentially stock – these early WRX and nice and simple with great motors. Lots of fun for not a lot of money.

Will land in Canada December, 2018 and either sell there or wait out the clock until eligible for USA import.

Interesting Suzuki Carry mobile sales tuck with refrigerated box on the back. Very nice shape having traveled only 3452 kilometers.

Will share more info once we have it in-stock December, 2018.

1972 Subaru Leone GS-R

1400cc twin-carb

Subaru Leone GSR from Tokyo. The GSR (GS-R) was the top of the range with a twin-carb 1400cc boxer driving the front wheels.

Pulling from an Australian advert:

Subaru – a new main event in your life. Rallyking. 1-2-3 outright against Japan’s best in the Motor Club of Japan’s top rally. Sizzlin’ performance from a Quadrazontal engine (cylinders horizontally opposed). It’s a lightweight alloy screamer with a 106 m.p.h. top speed and 35 m.p.g economy. 

Very complete and original but not running and in need of restoration.

Video of the Skyline –

Classic Skyline S50 1500 DX dating from the period immediately following Nissan’s take-over of Prince Motor Company – and is identified as both Nissan and Prince. Engine S50DS-46684 / chassis no. 50-200866

Interior is in very good condition – nice dash, seats and door panels and functional rubber flooring.

Engine starts right up and runs and drives well. We’ve put a few miles on this around downtown Seattle and it drives nice. We will flush the brake fluid and spend a little more time but nice original and solid car that needs little to be used regularly.

Really neat car that gets lots of positive comments from both car-people   and passers-by.

1991 Honda Acty 4WD kei-truck with 660cc motor in the back and 5-speed manual transmission.

Shows very low miles and bed and cabin are in great shape. But a few bumps and bruised on the body  so overall average condition – an inexpensive 4WD utility truck we will have in-stock December, 2018.

Subaru 2WD kei-truck with the 660cc clover 4-cylinder motor and 5-speed manual transmission. Fairly zippy and able to go 60+ MPH – however like most Kei trucks, more comfortable around town where you can expect mileage of approx. 45mpg.

Looks pretty good however seats need to be recovered and the bed could use a little clean-up.
