  • 1996 SSR-G Intercooled 3.0 1KZ-TE 3rd Gen For Sale 3500

    Can't Edit Title of Post but marking this as SOLD

    I've owned this Surf since 2010 and was previously owned by Andy on this forum. It had been well looked-after by Andy and I bought the Surf with 182,000kms on the clock.
    It's now on 355,000kms, regularly serviced and runs perfectly - I use it every day but I am doing less mountain biking and more and more commuting (the mileage has come from regular commutes from Nottingham to Coventry and Halifax) and I need something more economical and better-suited to motorway bashing.

    Since acquiring the Surf I've done the following:

    New Cylinder head, radiator, thermostat and transmission cooler installed by the legend that is Tony N in 2016, car never gets hot now and has performed faultlessly since.
    Cambelt done
    Steering rack done
    Bilstein B6 shocks with RT heavy duty springs
    Bespoke full turbo-back stainless twin exhaust by JAC Exhausts
    Projector headlamps (in new clear-lens 2000 model lamps from Japan)
    Twin batteries
    Clear front indicators
    New rear bumper steels (old one was corroded) - all genuine Toyota parts
    Front bumper resprayed when bull bar was removed last year.
    Additional 12v socket in dash and two in rear side panel.
    2000 model grille (Japan again)
    Toad Sterling CAT1 alarm with remote central locking
    LED rear lights and 3rd brake lamp (new from Japan via Noppin)
    Lexus IS200 front seats (heated) drivers is electric
    Dinitrol underseal with 5-year warranty in 2016 (new diff breather)
    New brake lines
    New rear heater pipes
    17" Berg Conquest split-rim alloys on H&R spacers with locking nuts - refurbed in 2016, some small lacquer peel but that's the salted roads for you.
    2-DIN Pioneer FH-X840DAB Bluetooth head unit with USB and CD.
    Sony Amp under passenger seat
    Powered flat sub in rear.
    Blaupunkt component speakers in front and 3-way in rear
    Tyres are Uniroyal RainExpert 3 265/65 R17 112 H FR, SUV all-round and less than 5 months old
    That thing on the back wheel is a bike carrier which are two bolt-ended metal arms which replace two spare wheel studs. This makes carrying more bikes a doddle. I have wrapped the arms in foam pipe lagging to stop the arms scratching the bikes. I can remove this if you want, or remember it's there when you reverse
    MOT expires 10th July 2018


    What bits don't work (car is now 22 years old):
    Rear washer jet has never worked. Wiper works fine.
    Some of the dash and heater bulbs are out. Popeye did me a refurbed heater panel but half of the bulbs are dead in it now. Doesn't hinder it working.
    Bit of lacquer peel on roof
    Projector lamps don't give a blue "Main beam" light on dash - they don't have the wiring
    A few small stone chips to front end and arches, the cost of doing 500 miles every week up and down the M1.
    Kink in rear bumper plastic top where a previous owner has closed the swingarm on something - purely cosmetic
    Some of the adhesive which holds the wind deflectors on had perished, so I used Gorilla glue which definitely does the job but if you are OCD you could paint the adhesive black...

    Um.. Nothing else I can think of. It's a very honest description, the truck is very clean and I think this is a fair price.


    Pics to follow when it stops raining. Still commuting all week in it so mileage will go up.

    I am in Nottingham, 2 mins from M1 J26.

    It's also got the drop-down rear mirror and the little wing mirror.
    It's green and silver
    Private plate will get transferred shortly, it'll be an N-plate.
    I've got the original stripey mats - you can put them in the washing machine but they are getting a bit threadbare on the fronts. I've always used rubber mats on top of them.

        It's only advertised here so nothing yet. I'm not in a rush.

        Edit: OK, I have another car now. So hoping to find a new owner soon.

          Looks like I sold it to a good home, apart from a few mods it looks the same as when I sold to you.

            Hey Andy! How are you? Yeah, it's been a great truck and I wish I could keep it but not logistically possible, we don't have space for three vehicles. The kids are gutted to see it go, but they can't afford it themselves

                  Hi Jimster,

                  I could be interested in the Surf, could you send me a Private Message, or a contact number to discuss further please?

                  P.s. I'm not on Premium subscription, so Private Message may not work.......... so telephone no if possible (landline if need be)

                  thanks, Paul. #

                    Hi Paul, I don't have PM facility either. I did include my mobile number in the original post but for whatever reason, it's been removed. Try this (with the xs removed):

                    xx07968xx00xx8882

                    I can't always take a call at work but you can text me your number and I'm happy to call you when it suits you.

                    Cheers,
                    Jim
