Response to Japanese pick up trucks in 1/24 or 1/25 scale?????

I became a small truck owner. And the kits I could find then were:

Revell 1980 1/32 Toyota pickup with roll bar and lights- snap together molded in black plastic

MPC Lil' Hustler Datsun pickup - 1/25 with lift kit and high performance engine, roll bar and lights, molded in orange if I remember right.

Monogram Chevy LUV - two in 1/24- one, the Mojave Mule, molded in yellow with offroad package. A second, molded in orange, with stepside bed.

AMT made a nice little Subaru Brat, molded in white, 1/25.

Lindberg issued a much later Toyota in 1/20 scale. Nice kit, molded in aqua blue color.

There have been other Japanese pickups, I think by Aoshima, but these are much later and tricked out to be low rider machines.

Ebay would be the best bet to find these- haven't looked at the prices.
