Okay I'm new to this forum and the classic Toyota scene. Not new to cars, or classic cars, but my mechanical knowledge is....... well....... let's just say I will be asking questions. :help:

I just bought a '65 Stout last Sunday from a property about an hour out of Adelaide. :D I love this thing. I had never seen one before, but once I saw it I had to have it. It's straight as, no rust, well just some surface rust in the tray. Everything works, even starts no worries and doesn't blow smoke. Hasn't been driven in the last 8 years or so apparently. Needs a bit of a going over from a safety perspective as it has no brakes at the moment, but I hope to get it on the road with minimal expense.

My only problem is.......... I know nothing about this car and can't find anything on the net, so............. anyone with any info or web links to info would be greatly appreciated by me.

Here it is:

I know nothing either. I just wanted to say that it reminds me of Mater, the character from Cars :clap:

The only other Stout i've seen was Rod from Toymods & here's a link to the sale thread on the old forums.

The new Toymods forum is located here & they could probably give you a bit more info...

Thanks heaps Conquest. Yeh I had managed to spot that thread and have a look at the Toymods Forum, but that was the only post I found on there. I appreciate the input though, cos it may have been something I hadn't found. Once I get the car to my place and can start messing about with it I guess I will have a better idea what I need help with and then maybe I can post up questions and someone will be able to point me in the right direction.

I knew this car was pretty rare, but I had no idea it was going to be this hard to find info on it.

Anyone else with any tips, PLEASE just post up what you know or where you think I could get more info. I have also joined the US based TORC Forum. Toyota Owners and Restorers Club. Not a heap of info there either, but some pretty sweet classic Toyota's in the US I gotta say.

Sorry mate, I don't know anyone. I'm trying to find out stuff about the one I've got, not get more of them. Hehe...... trying to downsize my car collection.

For a rural commercial vehicle of its type and age, it's amazingly straight. :o

Good luck with the restoration, would look cool with chromies and candy-apple red duco :spiteful:

Cheers mate. Yeh would look good slammed on some chromies, but I think that is a way off yet. For now I just plan to roll this thing pretty much as is. Dragster bike and an old esky or two in the back, drop her a little and paint the current steel rims also adding a big set of whitewalls. Maybe even some old style sign-writing on the side just for fun. Got a little bit of work to do just to get her on the road first though. It's all money :(

Hi Guys, I'm real new to this, I just had to say it's nice to see another stout on the road.
I have a 1966 stout, he's name is Nic, in the process of being returned to his former glory.
I purchased him from a friend in need about 5 years ago for $400.
He is the most reliable little truck, can sit for months on end, and start first time every
time, he has a flat wooden tray and has been painted "Mater" brown. He really does look
like mater.
Can any one tell me what the original size wheels these utes had?
and what colors they came out in?

Hey clairecat. I have sent you a private message as well through the forum. If you are not used to forums, then you can easily retrieve this by logging in and clicking the "New Messages" link near the top on the very right of the page.

As for wheel sizes........... I am pretty sure they all came standard with 13inch rims at that time. Mine is all original (except for paint) with original rims and they are 13's. I am still desperately seeking a set of original hubcaps for them. :angry:

Factory paint colours and codes is a little harder info to find. I have yet to see an exhaustive colour chart. I know for certain they came in a fire engine red and a hammer finish style colour green. I think a beige and a light blue as well.

Here is a few I think are original colours.

stv-borg........ I was wondering on how much are you wanting for the car as i will probably know someone who would be interested in buying the car, is the car running and in a decent condition, would there be a lot of work to do to get the car in good condition.
