Where are Crumpy's Hiluxes?

The hunt is on for two iconic Toyota Hiluxes that were stars of Barry Crump’s 1980’s Toyota Hilux advertising campaigns

Where are Crumpy’s Hiluxes?

Toyota New Zealand is keen to find the red 1982 Hilux used in the first television commercial starring the unflappable bushman-poet Barry Crump and his sidekick, city slicker Lloyd "Scotty" Scott. They are also on the hunt for the yellow 1983 Hilux from the second commercial, which also featured the comedic duo.

"We know the yellow Hilux was sold on TradeMe in 2016. Someone somewhere will know who owns either one of these vehicles. We may have parted company with them a few decades ago, but we feel we still have an unbreakable bond with them," says Toyota New Zealand’s general manager of marketing, Andrew Davis.

The Crumpy and Scotty Hilux commercials were ground-breaking in their day and won many advertising awards. The campaign was so loved and successful, the pairing of the two characters with Hilux continued for 12 years.

Anyone who has an idea where the red or yellow Hilux could be is asked to contact the marketing team at Toyota New Zealand through private message to the Toyota New Zealand Facebook page.
