I pad $4500....
I decided to make the purchase on a Dihatzu Hijet (CORRECTION does not translates to midget in Japanese) Climber Mini-truck, this one is a 1992, 7th Gen, S83P, 660cc Minitruck. The “climber” means it has rear axle lock. Amir has about 60 units in stock, he was very helpful.
Researching online I did find l lot of information, but Amir explains a LOT more than I knew, he has been in the business for 15 years. Plus if Bubbles in Trailer Park Boys has one, it HAS to be cool!
Don't forget you're buying a used vehicle, check it all out, they're over 25 years old! Some are in much better shape than others. Check for leaks, CV boots ripped, Loose suspension, Clutch slippage, clunks etc. Just like any used vehicle
S839 specs:
660cc 4 vavle 3 cyl engine 48-53hp carburated
weight: 1500 lbs
length 10'8" (128"). width 4'6" (54") w/o mirrors. Height 5'10" (70")
Load capacity 800 lbs

I purchased mine at Boeki USA, www.boekiusa.com has their updated inventory. Ask for Amir and tell them MOTOCHEEZ sent you!
East coast 212-729-8293
West coast 360-990-7770

I know there may be other videos of this.. but this is my Cheezy style!

More info (Wikipedia):
The Daihatsu Hijet (Japanese: ダイハツハイゼット) is a cabover microvan and pickup truck produced and sold by the Japanese automaker Daihatsu since 1960. Despite the similarities between the Hijet name and Toyota's naming scheme for its trucks and vans (Hiace and Hilux), the name "Hijet" has been in use for Daihatsu's Kei trucks and Microvans since 1960, over two decades before Toyota took control. "Hijet", when transliterated into Japanese, is very similar to "Midget", one of Daihatsu's other mini-trucks. The Hijet competes in Japan with the Honda Acty, Subaru Sambar, Mitsubishi Minicab, Suzuki Carry and the Nissan Clipper.

Due to changing products, links, etc, If you want the most recent product links (if these are no good), go to www.motocheez.com and click the section you're looking for (upper right) and scroll down the page for the item.
This keeps the links for all the parts more accurate. These I use and install on ALL my videos. I do not sell any of the items listed. (except T-shirts and key tags.. so you buy now!)

      maybe somebody can explain something to me. They were importing them here. I think the ones they were importing were from the 70s. Or maybe 80s. They were about four or 5000 apiece rebuilt and everything. If I'm right the company was only in business. About the year that was doing it. Here's the thing. You go to get one used be and to all on holy hell and not even running and they're charging five grand and more. They shouldn't even be $1000 in the condition that I'm seeing the men and their wanting five grand and more like I said some of them aren't even running and generally look like they've been beaten the hell I thought they were pushing it. When they were charging five grand a piece for a vehicle that was nearly 30 years old with high usage or that was like 10 years ago and like I said, right now if you can find one for sale around here you'll pay five grand or more starting out tried getting one a few times that it was debatable if it could even ever see the road again and they wanted ridiculous prices. I thought they were called a tuck tuck myself

      I bought my 1992 Suzuki Carry from Amir last spring. Amir is great to deal with, and I love my mini truck. I was going to buy a utility vehicle, and am so glad I didn't. I lifted it 2" and put 24" off road tires on the existing rims. The truck will go anywhere. It also will carry way more than it's own weight.  Great video!

      Very interesting.
      I'm into small cars and trucks, lived in Europe for a few years where I got hooked on them. My first small car was a 1985 Mini.
      Too bad in the USA they push bigger is better idea for vehicles.
      I live in the city and my little Chevy Spark is all I need I also ride motorcycles as my main vehicles but now and then you need four wheels.
      A little truck would be neat to have, only you can't bring more than one family member along, but then they can always rent a car or call uber.

      In Puerto Rico, they can't afford ATV's so they use old school Suzuki Samurais as farm & off-road vehicles which in reality are better options because of their increased cargo & towing capacity and the fact that their cheap. They usually buy 2 at a time (a non-runner for parts).

      These were very common in Australia. I have owned two of them & they are great in every way except one.......
      If you have a crash, no matter if it's side on or front on you are DEAD. The modern carry van has a bonnet (Hood) & Crumple Zones to give you a fighting chance but in these old vans you sit on top of the engine & all thats between you &7 the outside world is a thin bit of sheet metal. enjoy these fun little vans at your own risk.

      +MotoCheez On a brighter note, they are really easy to work on, they cost little to run & in my experience the Suzuki is the best of these micro trucks & they love to rev. Just don't let the valves bounce from over revving or the little engine will pop! Also the 5 door van version makes a great 3 door box trailer conversion if you cut the front off, close it up & fit a draw bar. I've seen it done here in Oz but I don't know what your local authorities would say.

      Vanessa, don't say a word about the carpets to the landlord, after you get all packed up, ask for them to come and do a walkthrough with you and give you a written list of what they expect you to take care of to get your security deposit back, they may not care about the carpets, they may already plan on replacing them; that's what happened in the last place I was at 17 years ago. Let them ID any issues, don't point anything out to them! You may want to rent a carpet cleaner and do the carpets a couple days before they come.

      Plan an hour ride with the Guinea Pigs and see how they do, will help you know what to expect from them on the big journey.

      You are going to be so close to Old Williamsburg, VA, so much awesome history there and things to do, and it's very economical. Some really good food there, too! Oh, and the Air and Space Center is in Hampton! This is from our visit back in September: https://youtu.be/9_YZ2NySJRE

      That Daihatsu was not built by Toyota, no more than jaguars were built by ford in the 90s. They partly owned daihatsu, daihatsu still didn't and still does their own thing.

      It's just something mini truck dealers say to make people feel better about buying a truck with a unfamiliar sounding name.

      Also that Suzuki doesn't make 47hp. All the carbed f6a powered trucks were rated for 42ps.
