    That's definately interesting. Perhaps started life as a 5th gen El Camino. Then received a custom wide body and extensive modifications from an unusual Holden enthusiast?

    That thing is huge! The driver can barely reach the brake pedal! LOL!

    Me like the look of this. Too bad the auction sheet doesn't look as good :(

    There has been a couple of 22B's go through in a space of one week, you go for months and months with none and then two within a week although condition/mileage wise they are not my cup of tea and the prices of them have rocketed.

    Last Week.

    I saw that one last week. I think it was R grade and a pretty rough R grade and still sold for something like 7 million JPY...Crazy!

    *Edit: Oops, I see you posted a video, not just a pic :)

    Only for some and I am getting asked about this a lot lately.

    If your agent does not have direct USS membership then he/she as well as his/her customers will only ever from now on see matchbox photos and only 2-3 of them and they tend to use either of the following sites (any agent in Japan can get these third party sites, does not mean they have auction membership) to look up vehicles for their customers.

    http://auctions.braveautointernational.jp/auctions/?p=project/lot&id=261269627&s
    http://auc.braveautointernational.jp/aj-lHo621vcKabgVVi.htm

    If your agent has direct USS membership then below is what he/she sees on the main site plus there are many other bonuses to having direct membership, this is part of the reason why I have invested so much in having direct membership to the auctions as it cuts out the middleman and all the bull that comes with it. I am not relying on a third party (other agents with direct membership) to buy my customers vehicles and so on.

    I know some think I bang on about this but it is true, there is a big difference between an agent with direct membership and one without.

    From this year, when a customer of mine requests a translation of a vehicle that he/she has picked out from the above third party auction sites he/she will receive back the translation along with all the following photos for free (it has always been free), I do not charge for translations or the extra work in sending the larger and more photos of the vehicle he/she may be interested in.

    And funny enough, this was a vehicle last night I was requested to translate and has just been through, sold for 3,135,000yen car cost.

    The following are the standard photos uploaded onto the member's auction site and this is what I view.

    The following are the CPAS photos uploaded onto the member's auction site - these are photos the seller has uploaded to the main site, same again, I get to view these.

    Ohhhh Snap that thing is a bit to much for me. I like a Lift and some big tires.. but that could drive on water with those Balloons.

    Japanese Arctic Truck! That has to be my least favorite color scheme on the 80's though.

    Nice Land Cruiser!

    Interesting, how such lifted truck will go through OOP, is it any special rules for this? Or it will be usual inspection?

    It should technically fail .. but seeing as there are thousands of trucks (LHD) like this on the road, it's all in who you know.
