1988 Toyota 4x2 Pick Up - 47,500 mi

I bought this truck new in 1988. I am the only owner. When I first bought the car, I drove it back and forth to work and used it on the weekends to haul wood and such to re-build my old farmhouse. For the last 20 years, it's been used only to teach my kids how to drive a stick shift in the field, carry my canoe to the river, and haul stuff to the dump once every couple of years. Other than that, it literally lived in an out building that used to be a chicken coup many years ago!
The truck just passed the Maryland State emissions test (pictured, tested June 13, 2016). Up until a couple of years ago, it ran like new. Now, it runs a little rough, like it needs a tune up or has a vacuum line loose. It drives fine and you should have no trouble driving it home. It has a cracked windshield (pictured). I ran into a small deer about 25 years ago and you can see some minor damage to the front bumper (also pictured). the dash board is cracked (pictured) and the body has a small amount of rust (also pictured). I am not sure, but I believe that since it has a cracked windshield, it may not pass the Maryland inspection in case you want to get MD plates.
The tires are the original Toyota tires which were stored in the chicken coup pretty much the whole time I've owned the truck. I bought some real knobby tires for winter driving and had those tires on the truck the whole time, never using the factory tires. I recently put the factory tires back on the truck. They have 90% or the original tread wear still on the tire (pictured). They are "bias" ply tires.
Please message me with questions. I am not allowing anyone to "visit" the truck, and this auction is an "as-is", sight unseen purchase. I will answer any question you might have and will post additional pictures if needed.

An eBayer asked me if I thought this car was ready to drive to California and whether or not I had kept up with regular service. I replied that, no, the buyer needs to figure out why it's running rough before such a long trip is made. I have driven this car maybe 300 miles in the last 10 years. It probably has the original spark plugs, has not had the oil, oil filter, or air filter replaced in all that time. Seller makes no guarantees whatsoever.
