Not Portly – 1967 Toyota Stout 1900

October 1, 2013

You wouldn’t believe it today, looking at Toyota’s vast manufacturing capabilities spread around the planet, but in 1964, they introduced the Stout 1900 pickup and sold a grand total of 4 trucks. This was Toyota’s first effort in the American pickup market, and you can imagine the objections – lack of legroom, lack of power, lack of size. Of course, that was all before anyone knew about the fuel crisis that would show up about 10 years later, when all those things were non-issues compared to fuel consumption. Today’s feature truck is not quite as rare as the 1964 model, but will still give you the feeling of those early days. You can find this 1967 Toyota Stout 1900 at $2000 with no bids and one day left to go in Lyle, WA.
