Nobody Owes Nobody Nothing: 1991 Daihatsu Rocky 4X4
The Daihatsu Motor Company was originally founded in 1907 as the Hatsudoki Seizo Co., and it is Japan’s oldest automaker, but it certainly isn’t the most famous or successful here in the United States. For a few years Daihatsu tried to tap into the North American auto game, but they were unsuccessful, no doubt partly due to the fact that buyers/sellers couldn’t spell their name. If the Daihatsu Motor Company is good enough to be owned by the Toyota Motor Corp, then a Rocky is good enough to be owned by you. Find this 1991 Daihatsu Rocky 4X4 offered for $6,800 in Willow Glen, CA via craigslist.
From the seller:
1991 Daihatsu rocky
title status: clean
Very clean, solid, sturdy Japanese 4×4. Simple and basic. 5 speed for highway cruising at 65/70 no problem. Used as business promotional vehicle, dressed up like a John Deere Tractor.
I will remove the vinyl wrap. Original paint seems to be in really good condition and still holds a shine. It’s basically 99% rust free. It also does not trip any oil.
I can leave the Deere decals if you like. Brand new super swamper tires. Diahatsu is owned by Toyota. Lots of similarities to Land Cruiser family. Models LD20 and F80 are almost identical.
They were imported for 3 years into the US. Used all over the world to this day under different names like the Rugger, fourtrack, and Toyota Blizzard. Has a targa removable half top. Seats 4. Interior is very clean. Japanese G-Wagon.
Stock wheels and brand new tires also come with vehicle. Great mpg hunting or overland truck. Or great for vineyard.
Going up in value quickly with new found passion for real 4×4’s.
The “Toyota” badged Blizzards are bringing $11,000 – $15,000.
Exact same vehicle.
This is a rare, very solid, “everything works as it should” vehicle.
Possible trade for gator or mule or Polaris or side by side atv
Just smogged and registration just paid.

I would love it it was the longer 4-door version and it came with the dancing Hula girl on the dash.
They’re supposed to be pretty good off roaders in the same vein as the Samurai / Sidekick.
