This 1991 Toyota OJ55 Bandeirante is finished in Heath Gray over a saddle vinyl interior and is powered by a 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder Mercedes diesel paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. The Bandeirante was produced only for the Brazilian market, this example underwent a recent complete cosmetic and mechanical restoration prior to being imported into the US from the seller. This Bandeirante is now offered with a clean Georgia title in the seller’s name.
The vehicle was originally white but was professionally repainted its current two-tone color combination as part of a frame-off restoration performed by Overland Imports. Its body style configuration is OJ55LP-2BL, which corresponds to a two-door double-cab pickup truck. A channel front bumper was added to match the factory rear bumper. The front grille was changed and features a square bezel with round headlights and a custom honeycomb grille insert. The bolts used are said to be new, as are the glass and weatherstripping.
Factory 16” wheels are color-matched to the exterior of the vehicle and are wrapped in BF Goodrich 235-85-16 All-Terrain T/A tires on all four corners.
The interior is fitted with beige carpeting and saddle colored vinyl seats. The headliner, sun visors, dash pad, door cards, and shifter boots were also finished in the same vinyl. Custom matching floor mats were added to the front and back as well. The vehicle has manual crank windows and a fire extinguisher is mounted underneath the dashboard on the passenger side.
The gauge cluster includes a speedometer as well as oil and water temperature gauges. There is a tachometer mounted to the right of the driver in the central instrument panel. The odometer was replaced during the restoration and currently reads 392 kilometers, of which 100 kilometers have been added by the seller.
The Mercedes-Benz OM-364 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder diesel was fully serviced as part of the restoration effort and was rebuilt to factory specifications. The belts, hoses, filters, seals, and gaskets are new. The transmission, transfer case, differentials, hubs, and axles were also rebuilt. The front brakes were converted to disc brakes and rear drums were rebuilt to factory specifications. All wiring harnesses were redone, and the locking mechanisms and window regulators are new. The engine is paired to a 4-speed manual transmission with a 2-high/4-high/4-low transfer case.
