Six years ago I built a BMW for the Baja…
I have never actually seen a unicorn in the United States. I’ve read articles on them and watched Top Gear destroy one, but seeing one in person is more rare than an unmodified Honda Civic Si in Los Angeles. They just dont exist.
So what is a Unicorn? Its a 1988 Hilux. The most desired truck on the planet. Sure you can buy a deuce and half or a mil-spec humvee or a Austrian made Pinzguaer, but a Toyota Hilux? Not really. So here it is for sale in Gardena, California on San Diego Craig’s list for….read thru the ad and guess what you would pay for a 1988 Toyota Pickup truck and then check the bottom of the page for the price.
“Tires are pretty damn good…” – yeah because for the pice below we are going to care about a cheap set of tires…
“Its got a badass minidisk player….” – now this makes sense. A unicorn should have another unicorn for its music player.
The cool part is that it has already been “REGISTERED and TITLED…so you dont have to deal with the headache!” Add more dollars…
Here are the specs from the ad:
Engine: 4 cylinder, 2L DIESEL
Transmission: 5 SPEED
MILEAGE: 121,000 MILES
Notes: FULL SERVICE, OIL CHANGE, NEW KNUCKLES, POWER STEERING, AIR CONDITIONER, ROOF RACK , NEW CARPET, CLEAN, 12V
They left out the rear seat hatchet option. But its good to see it there. No Hilux is complete without man tools lying around. A hatchet is the ultimate. Anyone can fire up a chainsaw….
Unfortunately the snorkel and roof tent are optional.

If this isn’t what you had in mind, They can build something to your exact specs on a 40,50,60,70,80 series. I have no idea whats that means but its seems like a cool offering. You’ll find more details on their website.
You can ride this Unicorn for $17,499 I know! But it gets 30mpg so you won’t need to feed this unicorn very often saving some cash in the long run…Or something like that. And its was cheaper than this one that Jalopnik showed us the other day. If you buy it, or own one, please let us come drive it just once. I’m dying to see if its worth all the hype.
