70S Ford Truck For Sale, Remember When Toyota Partnered With Yamaha To Sell Trucks?-Yamaha and Toyota have had an interesting relationship over the years. Yamaha has developed and supplied engines for several Toyota vehicles over the years, from Celica and MR2 to the classic 2000GT. In the 1970s, Toyota developed an exhibition truck called Yamahauler, which was specifically designed to promote its small pills. In 1974, Toyota introduced a long bed version of the Hilux truck or, as it was creatively called, the Toyota Truck. To install the largest bed, Toyota developed the Yamaha truck, widely used in Toyota advertising and as an advertising vehicle. It offered many additional features that are not available on standard trucks, such as bed rugs, thin seats from the ’70s, Cragar tires and a custom Molly Design paint.
Some newspaper articles from that era claim that this cart had an independent rear suspension and disc brakes of a Jaguar XKE. It also had an AK Miller turbocharger, which increased by 7 pounds. The turbos were common nowadays, but in 1974 they were extremely unusual. More recently, the turbochargers have been launched on normal petrol trucks like the Ford EcoBoost of the F-150.
The Yamahauler itself was not available to the public, but still had a two-meter-long bed, which is more than enough for most bikes. This was above all the point that Toyota wanted to bring to the motorcyclist community. Better yet, its long bed truck had a lower maneuvering height than American trucks at the time, which facilitates the loading and unloading of one or two motorcycles.

Toyota followed a second Yamahauler promotion in 1979, this time as a unique custom, which was awarded as the first prize in a competition. Earlier, in 1972, Hot Rod magazine built a Dodge Van project, also known as Yamahaaul. The magazine also delivered this car in a competition organized by Yamaha dealers. (Yamaha must have retained the right to use it for later Toyotas). But this 1974 model was the craziest of all and is our favorite Yamahaaul ………
