Welcome to the site, Brad. The two-tone paint scheme was offered in the US as part of the "LS" trim package. It included extra instruments and a more plush interior. Is that what yours is?

Nice looking truck, Brad! The two-tone scheme fell under the Rodeo 4WD 'Super' grade in Japan, which Holden sold as the Rodeo LS down under...I too wonder if Isuzu used the LS grade for the Oceania Market.

What extra instruments did it come with. The dash is still really tidy. The seats need a bit of work though.

Mine came with the c223 engine, and has the tacho, water temp, speedo, fuel all on the cluster. Not sure if that is standard or not.

The two tone is awesome. I always wanted a Chevy pickup (so rare here in NZ)... This is pretty close in my mind. Haha
