Another neat Mazda AZ-1 – the Autozam kei sportscar we love so much. This one has ~101k miles (163,260 km) and still under it’s Shakken (road worthiness) until Heisei 31 (2019).

Nicely equipped with MazdaSpeed hood and wheels; sticky Bridgestone Potenza RE01 and Fujitsubo exhaust – definitely faster than a standard AZ-1 and suspension / brakes / steering / clutch all feel excellent.

I’ve put a couple hundred miles on this AZ-1 and it’s a really good one. AC blows cold and everything works.

Exterior is presentable – paint is a 7 footer with a couple areas with touch-up / clear coat problems.

Interior is good with nice seats – repaired with new foam. AC blows cold and heater works well. Instrument binnacle modified for mounting an accessory on the dash as well couple cracks on the forward/right side (above the instruments).

As a driver, this is the best of 17 AZ-1 we’ve imported and [...]

Toyota Celica GT-4 ST205 with just 50k miles (81,934 kilometers). Very nice condition with shortcomings limited to faded and a couple cigarette burns.

Close relative to the RX-R we’ve sold a few of – an uncommon model and one of very few Kei models to be used in competition. Here are the FIA Papers for the Super KK Group N homologation. A version of this car was even campaigned by Colin McRae in the 1993 Safari Rally.

1993 Mitsubishi Delica 4WD Camper – Vantech JB-500

4WD diesel with 5-speed transmission

Neat Vantech Mitsubishi Delica 4×4 camper. Built on the L200 Delica truck chassis, this camper uses the simple and rugged naturally-aspirated 2.5 liter 4D56 diesel motor mated to 5-speed manual transmission and high/low range transfer-case. Not a fast vehicle, but able to cruise down the highway at 60 MPH which comfortable for this chassis. 4WD so you can out to less traveled terrain or for slow-speed use in snow-country.

Lots of room for storage and Reimo propane furnace for extending your camping season. Shore-power tested and systems and 110v operational.

1990 Toyota ToyoAce camper

2WD diesel with automatic transmission

Neat Toyota Camper with the rugged and efficient naturally-aspirated 2.4 liter diesel motor mated to an automatic transmission.

Just 34,950 miles (56,300 kilometers). Runs and drives very well and we’ve done rear-brakes (shoes & wheel cylinders) and been putting some miles on it.

Interior is clean with vinyl seating and clean carpet and upper sleeping area plus dinette that converts to another double-bed. Original camping equipment includes older charge-controller and inverter; German water-heater; as well as refrigerator; cook-top; shower / toilet unit. Will need change to a few plugs (shore-power) for USA use and maybe new house-battery – but new owner has lots of options whether recommissioning with updated equipment or use the original equipment here.

Some minor damage to the right/rear bumper where I caught driving up a steep driveway. Good opportunity to update to a more modern & rugged bumper. Price reduced accordingly.

Good value and option for those considering a Volkswagen Westfalia [...]
