Selling my trusty old 1982 Toyota. The truck has approx. 193,XXX miles on it, the 2.4L 22r, 5-spd manual, SR5 package. These trucks are getting harder and harder to come by with under 200k. The body is white in near-original condition with some rust, I have replaced both front fenders so it is already on its way to becoming more rust-free. It includes a nice, locking tool box in the bed.

Since I've owned the truck (about 2 years), I have replaced the bucket seats with later model buckets for more leg room, rebuilt the carb, replaced the alternator, oil pump o-ring, rear main seal, oil pan gasket, water pump, distributor cap, rotor, and plugs, also the front brake pads and rotors. It has a drop in K&N air filter. I had the front driveshaft u-joint rebuilt by Englewood driveshaft when I acquired the truck. Transmission and T-Case shift smoothly. I recently did a complete tear down of the front axle and replaced all wearable parts from the inner axle seal out and packed the bearings with fresh grease. The previous owner installed a cat-back exhaust system, rear brakes and did some other work which I have some records for. Sale will include an extra valve cover gasket, Factory Service Manual, and two other repair manuals. The mud-terrain tires have a good amount of life left and have been properly rotated. 4x4 works great. Typically, I see around 20 mpg mixed highway/city driving, have seen as high as 23 mpg even with the mud-terrains. These trucks have a legendary reputation, and the nice thing about the early models is they are pretty simple mechanically. There wasn't a single day this past winter that it did not start. It has been my daily driver, but I am now commuting on public transportation as I am a student.

Intermittently, it has a vacuum leak that I have not been able to track down. It seems to only occur after the truck has been re-started after sitting a short time. This causes it to occasionally die at idle. The windshield is cracked but does not impair the drivers field of vision at all. Tachometer function intermittently. Leaks some oil. It passed emissions back in December of 2009 with no problem, not sure how it would do today because of the vacuum leak. The truck needs new shocks. Does not include HAM radio or antenna.

Asking price is $1600, which I feel is fair based on the work I've put into it. I'll list in here only for a while before I post on CL. This truck is a solid foundation for anyone to build upon. For me, the bottom line is this old regular cab truck just hasn't been a practical DD, and I'll be shopping around for a good extended-cab T100.

That's a solid truck for a good price. Someone will buy it quick and be happy to have it!

I miss that truck! Sorry to hear you're letting it go, Rick. I would buy it back if I didn't already have another. I hope the new owner appreciates it and doesn't turn it into yet another beat-down rock buggy.

It's a good truck, no doubt. If I had a lot of time I'd love to get it restored and built up because I know it would do great wheeling. It's just not working out as my only vehicle at this time :(

A Guatemalan, with plans to use it as a work truck. Spanish III from high school definitely paid off in making this deal...

I used to know a group of guys from Honduras who would come up to the states and buy Toyota pickups to drive back down to Central America. They are really sought after for farm trucks down there. They said they were the only rigs that could hold up to the abuse. They basically drive them into the ground so there aren't many left down there which is why they come and get them here.

Very interesting, I suppose it is possible that the buyer may have had these plans. He seemed was concerned that the bed was hacked up and rusty, and from what I gathered he planned on replacing it...
