    1965 Toyota Stout
    Hello everyone, I've been browsing this site for some time now and finally decided to join after picking up my 1965 Stout this past weekend. Everything on the truck is stock except for the horn button, fuel pump and rear bumper.

    I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area and the Stout is my first truck. Picked it up for $1000, engine runs great, drives fine just needs to have the carb rebuilt and install a new clutch, but can't find part numbers, waiting on Mike at Cabe Toyota to get back to me.

    My current plans for the truck are to get it running reliably and rust proof it. Not sure where to start other than the new clutch kit and maybe disc brakes. I would like to do most of the work myself, but it has been a long time since I worked on my own cars and have never changed a clutch. Hoping to get some advice, insight and a little help getting this truck back on the road.

    Will be starting a thread on the clutch shortly and also posting some pics to imgur soon.

    Thanks @jetas. Checked them out. They do have alot to choose from. I found a kit for a 1967 Corona, which has the 3R-C engine, but have not received confirmation that it fits the 1965 3R found in the Stout.

    If youre not dead set on keeping that engine id suggest a 20R or 22R swap

    Much much easier to find parts for

    Definitely considering on doing a 22r swap and 4x4 for that very reason, but not for a while, just want to drive this around as is. Everything is in good driving condition but the clutch.

    IMO if you're gonna swap anything into something like a Stout, might as well go big and put something like a Lexus 1uz in there.

    @Perkolator the more I research, I agree with you on the 1uz swap. i haven't found any info on someone successfully fitting that into a Stout. Also, still finding someone close to home that can reliably do or help me do one of these swaps.

    Well I saw you mentioned kids - there’s your help right there! Family project!

    I too am wondering how the heck someone gets a running stout for $1k and in Bay Area too!
