Toyota Specialist Vehicles: Dyna Body Conversions

4 February 2003

On Display for the first time at the NEC LCV Show 2003

Toyota will be displaying its specialist vehicle range including new Dyna body conversions for the first time at the NEC LCV Show from 18-20 March 2003. The Dyna 350 LWB car transporter will be on display alongside the Dyna 350 MWB box van and the Dyna 300 Dropside Caged Tipper – ideal for local council use.

The Hiace 12-seat minibus and Hiace 280GS Crew Cab conversions will also be on display as well as the Hilux 270 VX Double Cab with leather upholstery option for the first time.

The full range of Toyota commercial vehicles will be on display alongside the specialist vehicle range including the Dyna 350 Alloy Dropside, Hilux 2WD Extra Cab, 4WD Single and Double Cabs alongside the Hiace 280GS tailgate and 300GS swing-out rear door models. All Hiace vans are available with Toyota’s easy to use turn-by-turn satellite navigation system.


The introduction of Dyna to the UK market in November 2001 took Toyota into the 3,000-3,500kg Gross Vehicle Weight market for the first time. The Dyna range consists of dropside and chassis cabs with a range of specialist body conversions. ABS brakes, driver’s airbag, remote central locking and alarm/immobiliser are standard across the Dyna range.

The Dyna 350 is available with 102bhp also in five-speed manual in either medium or long wheelbase. The 350 model is available from approved Toyota body builders in dropside, box van, tipper body or car transporter style with a full three-year warranty. (NB Pick up bed has a one-year warranty.)

Approved Toyota body builders include J C Payne, Hydromech, Ingimix and Chelmer Truck Bodies.
