The market for imported Japanese fire trucks remains red-hot, with a cross-section of JDM, 4x4, and service vehicle collectors clamoring for fine examples, plus a market for lightly-used, operable, reliable fire trucks utilized for private fleets.
For those in either camp, this 1996 Toyota Dyna 200 should be at the top of your list thanks to its low mileage, dual rear wheels, reliable 4.1L diesel engine, hi/lo 4-wheel drive, manual locking hubs, and spacious, tilting quad cab.
About The Toyota Dyna
Since 1959, the Toyota Dyna has served as a heavy-duty work truck with a flexible platform for service outfitting and ultra-reliable diesel engines. It was originally exclusively at the Toyota Diesel Store (more on the wild world of Japanese Toyota dealerships here), while the platform-sharing, lighter-duty version, the Toyoace, was sold at the Toyopet store.
Over the eight generations since it was introduced, the Dyna has served a multitude of roles including construction, agriculture, public safety, and public transportation. Because of their heavy-duty workload and legendary durability, we see very few Dyna make their way from Asia to the U.S. Plus, the variety of engine options and build configurations make pegging an exact valuation challenging.
But what we do know is that this particular example is going to be highly coveted for its 4.1L diesel engine, quad-cab, 5-speed manual transmission, and 4-wheel drive.
