1974 Toyota Hiace Danbury Conversion

Hi, I am seeking to recommission a Danbury converted Hiace, which has been standing for nearly 30 years. I need spare parts for brake and clutch hydraulics, radiator and cylinder head gasket set. Does anyone know where I could find these? It has drum brakes all round and a 1587cc petrol engine. Also can it be run on unleaded fuel, or do I need to have new valve seats fitted, many thanks in advance. Andy

Google reveals several forums: https://hiace-super-custom.forumotion.com people on those will know more than we do.

Also from a Google search: https://toyota-europe.epc-data.com/hiace/

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

the radiator will be repairable, new core, etc, the rest is motor factor stuff, you may need to shop around but the hiace was a popular vehicle in it's other forms, you may even be able to get some body parts if needed, habitation stuff would be the biggest problem.

plenty of carbs on Ebay if it's a petrol version.
