1985 TOY­OTA SR5 XTRA CAB, BACK TO THE FU­TURE, 1985

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - GEAR -

The other car in this movie is way more fa­mous but we pre­fer this one. Af­ter Marty com­pleted his ad­ven­tures, he re­turned to the present to find his brand-new truck in the garage.

It looks a bit bland now, but back in the ’80s, this was the truck to have. The di­rec­tor had it mod­i­fied. The ex­tra bits in­clude a sus­pen­sion lift, roll bar and a to­tal of six KC lights.

The orig­i­nal car was given away in a com­pe­ti­tion so a replica had to be made. The replica was stolen and was found years later in Mex­ico, where a wealthy movie buff bought it and re­stored it to its former glory.

It now stands next to a DeLorean in the un­named col­lec­tor’s garage.

Price: R100 000 gets you a de­cent Hilux you can mod­ify to look like this. Can it 4×4: Yep, very much so.
