Up for sale is my 1980 Toyota Pickup. I've had this truck for 6 years and in the past year or two it just hasn't got the use it deserves so it's time to move on. The truck has a reconstructed title and I'm guessing it was rebuilt a long time before I got it. I do have a PA title for it.
Here's a mostly complete list of stuff done:
Body:-1980 Toyota pickup cab and frame with tube bed-PPG Delfleet Essential paint-quick attach doors-new body mounts-quick attach rear fenders-tube bumper-Bud Built skid plate & crossmember-Trail Gear frame gussets-9000lb Badlands winch-trailer tail lights-trimmed front fenders-Bilstein shocks-fire extinguisher-off-road jack-stainless steel hardware
Axles:-original Toyota 8" axles-RCV front axle shafts-CroMo hub gears-HD axle seals-front and rear Aussie lockers-5.29 gears-Marlin knuckle ball gussets-Trail Gear upper axle gusset-Trail Gear diff armor on front axle-custom front and rear driveshaft-hydro assist steering-low profile drain plugs
Engine / Trans:-Toyota 22R-5 Speed-Marlin Crawler twin transfer cases-Trail Gear twin stick rear-new t-case mounts
Wheels / Tires:-American Racing Aluminum Wheels-Goodyear Wrangler MT/R 37 x 12.50 x 15 w/ full size spare wheel & tire
In 2016, the truck underwent a frame off resto. The hood and doors were acid dipped, the cab was stripped (except for the engine bay), and the entire thing was re-sprayed. A new windshield and fenders were installed then as well. The truck is in pretty great shape cosmetically. There is a little rust starting around the driver side pinch weld and inside the driver's side door jamb. I have the leftover paint and pin striping too. Mechanically, it's extremely stout with only two outlying issues. The carb loses prime, so if the truck sits a while, it takes a little cranking to get the carb filled back up and the truck started. Once it's started, it runs fine with no issues. The other problem is some noise coming from the transmission. I have the trans tunnel off from trying to diagnose it. My best guess is maybe the pilot bearing? It shifts smooth, stays in gear, and operates as it should but makes some noise at a certain load / rpm. All the lights work, horn works, and the heat works. There's no A/C but you can just take the doors off. No radio either.
Aside from looking good, this truck is relatively competitive. I've ran it at a few Rousch Creek club comps. Had a little trouble snapping stock axles but since I added the hydro assist steer and the RCV's it's been great.
I've had my fun with this thing, now it's time for someone else to enjoy it. Any questions, lemme know. Thanks!
