Japanse Mini Truck Engines- We are the only distributors for these in the USA !
Japanese Mini Trucks are cute little utility trucks that were allowed to be imported from 2004-2008 in United States. Their are over a 2 million of these trucks in United States and Canada. These trucks have little 3 cylinder 660 engines. 1990-97 models generally have carburetted engines and 1998 up have fuel injected engines. Most of these were sold in United States for farming, big warehouses, ranches, agriculture and off road purposes, they are also being used in the U.S in big car lots, salvage yards and schools. These trucks have a cabin, some have A/C but all have heaters and they look and feel great. All these trucks are 4wd and have manual transmission.
The problem is since these trucks are only available in Japan there are no parts available for these in United States. Engines & Transmissions are hard to find. The most famous models that were imported in United States were: DIAHATSU HIJET, SUZUKI CARRY, HONDA ACTY & SUBARU SAMBAR. These trucks have become very popular over the years but apparently EPA does not allow import of these trucks.
The good news is that we carry the whole line of Japanese Mini Truck Engines. Engines & Transmissions for Suzuki Carry, Honda Acty, Diahatsu Hijet & Subaur Sambar are all available in stock.
