1984 Toyota Tercel SR5 4WD
Very nice little 4wd Toyota Tercel!
This little pampered 4x4 is one the nicest one you will ever find, very few of these for sale would ever have the amount of work performed simply because it will exceed the carsinitial purchase price. I'm not a mechanic by any stretch so I search for a long time for a car that was 100%gone through. Having owned a few of these of the years this car hands down wins on power/performance and function, within the scope of 80's econcruisers.These cars are verycapable in the snow, possible due to their weight distribution and slim tire profile.
It drives like a dream and handles nicely. The 4 wheel drive works flawlessly. The engine was rebuilt by a certified Toyota mechanic and has 17k miles on rebuild. Also in the past 6 months it has had a new weber carburetor installed with fuel pressure regulator, new timing belt and water pump, new alternator and battery, recent valve adjustment and compression check [ registered 175lbs in each cylinder], new fuel pump and fuel filter, new intake manifold gaskets, new radiator, distributor, new axle bearings, tune-up, new front brake rotors and pads, new rear brake drums and brake shoes. Also has new exhaust installed.
Essentiallythe car was rebuilt for his son to drive, when the work was completed hisson wasn't impressed by the brick like styling of the car and it was sold to me. If you are one of the manywho arenow familiar with this classic 4WD you will appreciate thecapability ofone ofToyota best80's cars.
It also has the very rare "compound" extra gear [besides the 5 spd] for extra power. This gear isavailable when in 4WD low, then you can accessthe 6th UL speed forclimbingjust about anything.One neat feature is the car's working"incline-meter" with lights, this is more form than function but it's lookscool, these are known to sell oneBay for hundreds.
Alsothe original radioAM/FM works which is quite rare to find.All windowswork correctly and most of the interior plastics are in great shape.
This vehicle is strong with no surprises, all glass is perfect and tires are good. The wheels have been upgraded to 14" wheels and tires.
Thanks for looking and Happy Bidding!
This a rust free vehiclethat lived it's life in Oregon, thenin the last few years wasmoved to New Mexico.This car does not have California compliant smog equipment so bid accordingly. The money spent on the car will likelybe close to the sale price so thisis a terrific rustfree example of4WDTercel.The remaining item that I would do is a paint job,this isn't required except for some flaking near the doorroof gutters and the rear hatch.
When I was a kidmy firstcar was my Dad's old Tercel with 250K miles on the clock, itisunbelievable how much better this car runs than my Dad's old car. This carwas professionally restored by a Toyota mechanicwho eitherrebuilt or replaced anything thatneeded service. I've personally driven the car non-stop from New Mexico to San Diego with no issues. The reason I'm selling is I'm purchasing aolder Land Cruiser andthis will need to go to make room. I'vementioned with all the newcarburetor work, and exhaust work this car would not be California SMOG compliant soCalifornia Bidders would not be advised, you will be responsible for paying$500non-refundable deposit at auction close with remaining balance within 5 days. I'm happy to work with a car shipper if you make arrangements, I recommend uship.com for shipping quotes.
