View Full Version : 1985 Toyota 4-runner

1985 4 runner, tan with brown interior. Metal is straight, but a little rust in a few spots, like around the fuel filler. Pretty much stock, but has a rear tube bumper and sliders. Seller says the motor just died and needs a new one.
He's my co-worker, so what do you figure that's worth? I found a new motor on line for $1,400, so that doesn't seem to crazy to me if you buy it right.
And no, I don't want it. Too much of a project for me right now.

I've seen folks asking $1200-$1500 for similar rigs, not sure what they are getting for them though. I like old 4Runners, and I know 1985 is one of the most desireable years because it has EFI and a solid front axle.

He's still debating on whether to keep it and put a new motor in. I told him he needs to join the club and make friends with someone that has a shop!

Did he figure out a price? I could be interested in a project.
