Daihatsu Taft (TAFT stands for Tough Almighty Four wheel drive Transport) is a four wheel drive vehicle built by Daihatsu between 1974 and 1984. It was also sold as the Daihatsu Wildcat and as the Daihatsu Scat in some markets. The Daihatsu Taft is similar to the Suzuki Jimny, although a bit larger. The first Taft was the F10, introduced in 1974. It was equipped with a 1.0 L (958 cc) petrol engine and a four-speed transmission with a two-range transfer case. The F10 was available in short-wheel-base (SWB) soft-top and hardtop versions. In around 1977, the F10 was replaced with the F20 series with the 1.6 L (1587 cc) 12R petrol engine. It featured an improved transmission and was available in SWB Soft top and Hard top versions, either as four or six seaters.
This car is a 1979 Daihatsu F20 Taft which is now very rare. The vehicle has a totally restored body, it has very good paint work, there is no rust or rot and is very solid, and has good tyres fitted all round. The Daihatsu is displaying just 12000 miles and judging by its condition and low ownership this could well be correct, it has covered less then 1500 miles in the last eight years but please make your own mind up as due to its age we cannot guarantee the mileage. It runs and drives very well and has had a brand new stainless steel exhaust system fitted. The car starts on the button and has a very sweet engine and drives just as it should. The Daihatsu will have a fresh MOT upon sale. The hood is in good condition and is a very simple job to remove. A great value 4×4 that will take you anywhere whilst having fun at the same time. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. Please call us for any more information. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.
