We often get asked for information on cheap Toyota Hi-Ace panel vans. They lend themselves to conversions easily and they can be picked up for relatively little money, notably at auction.
From 1967, this panel van has gone through several major changes, ending in the 5th generation Hi-Ace.
Minibus, pickup, taxi, and motorhome conversions are all within this rugged van's capabilities and mechanically they make a sound investment. Less loved than their VW counterpart, they can be had for great money. Buy now and you won't regret it!
