OttoEx is a licensed importer and dealer based in Portland, Oregon. We also also build, convert, upfit, and restore camper vans, campers, trucks, and pretty much anything else with an engine and four wheels! Now, let’s look back to a time when things were made to last, less complicated, and more utilitarian. Here at OttoEx we’ve set out on a mission to bring you the coolest adventure inspiring vehicles of the past 40 years in all of their original glory. We specialize in 100% federally legal, clean automobiles, hand-picked, restored, and customized when needed. We focus primarily on JDM and European vehicles with a strong fondness and bias towards Toyota, but we also love working on anything else Japanese.
For us, it’s always been about the romance between man and machine and we take great pride in personally selecting these vehicles, and inspecting them before we get our hands on them. Once we do, we go through them with a great deal of love and care to bring them up to speed and ensure they will be on the road for many years to come. What began as a passion project has turned into something much more – sharing our love of these distinct and amazing machines with the rest of you, and giving our customers and their families the opportunity to own and enjoy these cars.
Don’t take our word for it
Hear what our customers have to say.
We contacted OttoEx from an online advertisement. Alex responded quickly to all of our initial inquires and follow-up questions. He was able to make his schedule work with ours for a meet and greet and first look at the vehicle. He took us on a test drive and answered all of our (many) questions. It was obvious that he had extensive knowledge in imported vehicles and the van in question. He made us feel at ease, which is unusual when buying any used car. Because it was a weekend we were not able to secure the funding until the following business day and he worked with us until we could secure the funding for the vehicle. When we left, we felt assured in our purchase and at ease. We were overly satisfied with this purchase from Alex and OttoEx. The experience was like working with a friend of the family!
We love this van! We purchased a low mile 1988 Toyota Super Casual Lite Ace and could not be happier. Alex explained all of the special features of the car and made our purchase a fun experience. He also gave us recommendations on local service, etc. Alex went above and beyond. I have never felt as excited or confident in buying a used vehicle as I did from Alex and OttoEx.
We would definitely recommend Alex and OttoEx for the purchase of any specialty auto.

Alex and Andre are fantastic to deal with, they were very accommodating during the purchase of my van. They’re extremely knowledgable and professional, having all the correct paperwork and information, even for sourcing future parts. When meeting them, you get the impression that this is more of a passion, than a business for them. Whenever anyone asks about my van, I happily tell them about OttoEx.com and to look them up. We've been very satisfied with our new vehicle. There have been no issues thus far and the van has brought us weekly excitement. We would definitely recommend OttoEx to anyone else interested in purchasing a JDM vehicle.
My experience with Ottoex was excellent, Alex was prepared with all required paperwork and local registration went smooth and easy. The car has been a joy to drive and gets attention everywhere! I would of course recommend Ottoex to anyone else looking for a JDM or specialty vehicle. Great truck and great value for the money. I consider my truck an investment that will last for many years.
