In April 1958, the RK23 was succeeded by the RK30, adopting a synchromesh transmission and switching from a floor shifter to a column shifter to accommodate three people. In July 1958, the RK35 was introduced, extending the wheelbase by 210 mm and increasing the payload capacity to 1.75 tons. The modification was in line with the reclassification of the small 4-wheeled vehicle category in June of the previous year, which expanded the maximum length from 4.3 m to 4.7 m.
In June 1959, the Toyopet truck was renamed the Stout in a naming competition participated by Toyota and sales channel employees.
