Desert Survivor being sold by a very legit Ebay seller
If you have any concerns about our vehicle, please ask or dont
bid on it. Dont wait till after you win and then make up stuff on
wondering if we are real or not.
FEEDBACK !!! if you cant take 10 min to read thru our feedback
on the cars we have sold here over the last 10 yrs, then you also
shouldnt be bidding on our auctions. Ebay offers our Feedback rating
for a reason,... try trusting it.
These trucks are getting harder to find this original and even
harder to find this rot and rust free. Already a modern classic.
Id hop in and drive it anywhere the way it sits. Idles a little high
right now, may be a vacuum leak or AIC valve stuck, kinda common
on these older Toys. Doesnt effect driveability at all, but should be
looked at. I may try and fix it too before it ends. Paint all looks to
be original, with Az patina. Never really been modded or used for
serious off roading, but here in Az are lots of places to have some
fun w/o killing the vehicle. No rot or rust under this truck, its a true
Az vehicle. Has about 220k on it.
Its been mostly we gather an original Az its whole life


apparently some people
who use ebay arent smart enough to understand the rules.
So if you have under 10 feedbacks, Ill be emailing you if you bid to
make sure you are legit, if we do please reply or we will cancel your bid.
Up for Auction: LOW FAIR RESERVE !!!

DRIVETRAIN: factory V6 3.0 runs well and sounds good.
Timing belt and water pump done less then a yr ago. Clutch
etc all feel good too. Ive been tooling around town in this
truck off and on the last month, nothing serious to report.
Tires decent too. Fun to drive. Has AC, which blows cool, but
not cold. Heat works, but hardly ever used here.

INTERIOR: take a look at the pics. Very original and yes a bit dry,
and Az makes things dusty here alot. The front seats is good, but
out of another Toy and not matching color. Back seats are nice.
Carpets prob the worst part, but not horrible. All the gauges etc work
and lights. Radio works, but older set up. Glass all good too.

EXTERIOR:the body pretty straight for its age, but this is a 95%
rust FREE survivor. Windows roll up and down,The doors work fine.
Rust or rot I should say is almost non existent on the body.
Much nicer by comparison to a truck this old from the eastcoast.
Paint could be original ! Decals look to be the original SR5 from 88.
Nice color combo too. Has a few small dents, check out all the pics.
No bondo or rot.

SUSPENSION:the suspension looks normal from what I can see ..
but it is 30 yrs old, but most of it has been up kept.
Looks to be factory height with no lift. Wheels prob not original
for this yr. 4x stuff works fine.
We didnt hear any weird noises or clunks while driving it around. It Im sure
will need some work soon like bushings etc, but as is its driving around ok.
Minimal rust under the car, making taking this car apart, almost a breeze !!

Check out ALL the pics below ----->

it may take a full minute for them all to load ifyou have a
slow connection, so be patient AND looks for the extra scroll
bar on the right side.
Az gets maybe 12" a yr of rain and Az very dry climate.
more infoAFTER the pics etc. There are 100 large pics.

There you go, probably The BEST represented TRUCKS on Ebay.

Shows you all the good as well as any bad.
We put a lot of time and effort in marketing our cars.
People wait months for a car this solid to come up for sale
and even if you have to pay shipping to your area, it still beats
paying a body shop to hopefully fix a rusty car for weeks on end.
Having as much as the original steel on a non restored car these
speaks volumes. Survivors are getting harder to find !
Also, if you buy a car thats been "restored", who knows what surprises are hidden under new paint or thick undercoating.
People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs are
fast, for a quick buck and quality suffers.

Email us with ANY questions before you bid please

Our Impeccable FEEDBACK speaks for itself. We show you as
much feasibly possible via pics.
Dont let auctions withlittle to no pics try to fool you.
If they cant take the time to take pics of areas under the car they
are selling, maybe its not the best car to buy long distance.
With other auctions, you really dont know what to expect
until you take the car apart. While we go over our cars ALL OVER
with great pics to help making your decision easier.
Along with ANY other questions you may have.
Email me for a quote for shipping.

Keep in mind, this is not a restored car !!

and our Feedback speaks for itself !

IF you need a shipping quote, just email us with your city/state
and Ill find out our best quote for you !!
No problem helping it to the docks if you are shipping overseas .

be paid for and shipped from our holding lot as mentioned in
