1982 Toyota Other
|An Elusive Survivor.........Background: This 1982 Toyota Pickup 5 speedmanual(a stunningexample of a true stock time capsule) is in excellent condition. Purchased new and spending it's first 22 years in California, this rust free beauty moved with the family abroad to Va in 2004. It was driven twice a week on average, but always garage kept. It has never seen salt or harsh weather. The 4 wheel drive was onlyengaged from time to time to keep all the moving parts working and lubricated. Original 76k miles and used on average at just over 2k miles a year. It's a rare original find! Everything except the camper shell is just as it came from the showroom floor. It has 4 wheel drive on demand with manual locking hubs. It has a strong 22R engine that just received a full inspection, tune up and oil change (paperwork available). It also has a sliding rear window that functions perfectly. All doors, door jams, weather seals etc work properly. All light switches, gauges, shifts, levers etc work as they should.This truck has been family owned since new purchase, having all scheduledmaintenance since such time. Everything is original including up and through the factory tool kit. |
Condition: Just a little surface oxidation as it's original paint has peeled a bit on roof and parts of the hood - primer was applied to prevent rust. THERE IS NO BODY WORK, BONDO, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF REPAIR WORK OR TOUCH PAINT TO THIS CLEAN AND STRAIGHT BODY. NO ACCIDENTS! All Original Paint (look at pics)
Interior: There are twosmall minor cracks in dash pad (can be left and not a problem but also a cheap repair). Factory A/C ice cold and has not been converted believe it or not.Upholstery and liners are absolutelystunning, looking almost as original when new (see pics).
The Bonus: Brand new tires just put on about 100 miles ago, brand new brakes & rotors, and brandnew wheel bearings. All of the above described work was recently done a few weeks ago (receipts for all this available). A full top to bottom inspection has been done, including thetransmission (report also available). I have well over $1800 dollars in this lastmaintenance and repair. This willyield some new lucky owner a long time of worry free miles and peace of mind!
There was noexpensespared in making sure this time capsule truck would be 100% and ready to go to a new home or collector's show room. The mechanics who just preformed the above described service were in total amazement at the condition of the truck, the transmission, the body, and the overall condition. Even the tires when replaced had the original rubber that simply floored the Toyota Dealership people! I can tell you that by the end of the day, the buzz about this truck around the dealership ended up in the owner's office and an offer to purchase was made to me on the spot!
Truck was inspected on June 3, 2016 by the International Vehicle Association Network - inspection available to serious buyers.
Conclusion: An rare original-owner time capsule truck like this comes around very infrequently and for those of you who wait patiently to find one - HERE IT IS! This is as original as it gets! When trucks like this do come around, they don't last. Just check and see how fast these auctions have ended or how muchthese trucks are fetching (well north of my buy it now). And most of these are not near the original condition of this survivor! Call or message me with any questions. Truck is being stored in a condo garage in the tri-state area and can be inspected with reasonable notice. I urge all interested parties to come and see this truck if you are serious about purchasing it. 954 682 1117 Thanks for looking.
