How can a hilux twin cab 1989 be on sale today in the Japanese used car auctions with only 11,360kms? Could these kms be real?
Yes, both of the above is true. In actual fact the real owner of this vehicle was a city council. The vehicle was custom made as fire engine. There is a story behind these vehicles for the city council.
These types of vehicles are purchased by the city hall by tender. The city office explains what sort of vehicles is required and any company can tender their bids. After the vehicle is made and paid for the city office also has a condition about how long they can keep the vehicle for, as well as what condition the vehicle must be kept to. The result is a vehicle like this one, low in kms, high in condition that must be sold in the Japanese used car auctions. Bargains to be got!
