1985 Toyota Other

For sell is my rad 85 Toyota Van Wagon, a super rare relic of a better age in pretty solid condition. This summer I drove this baby from New York City all the way to Austin and it performed beautifully, since then I've replaced a bunch of parts and it is my daily driver, not bad for a 30+ year old.
The Good:
  • Starts every time, engine runs great- 93,XXX accurate miles (still driving it daily)- 6 digit ODO so those miles are realer than real deal Holyfield
  • Recent tune up with new spark plugs, distributor, and rotor
  • New rear shocks (KYB Gas-Adjust)
  • New tailpipe and muffler (from the catalytic converter on back)
  • Pretty new paintjob, bright and clear blue
  • New aftermarket bluetooth/aux radio and new aftermarket speakers
  • Van is an empty, unfinished shell from passenger compartment back- make it a cool camper or something else equally creative and quirky
  • Sweet roof rack makes you look like an off roader (but seriously, don't offroad in it)
  • No rust on the body and panels are pretty dent free and nice (a few normal nicks/scratches)

The Bad:
  • It's 30+ years old and runs/drives like a 30 year old van
  • AC blows but it's not very cold
  • Van is an empty, unfinished shell from passenger compartment back- nowhere for passengers to sit and its kinda boomy/echo-y
  • Paintjob is a respray in a non-factory color, if you're a car buff you might sniffle at it
  • Needs rear brake work- likely a new line and master cylinder (I will fix this on my own if BIN is met)
  • Tires are functional but a little old
  • Two warning lights are intermittently on- radiator and brake- the brake is definitely off and the car always stays cool, so its just faulty sensors- replace them or just ignore them (you'd know if the brake was on or if the temp started to creep since there is a temp gauge)
  • There is some rust on the rear undercarriage- I've replaced all of the worst affected parts, but still worth noting.
Ideal van for someone who wants to make it into something cool or needs to haul some light stuff in style (it hauled a motorcycle and king sized bed frame from NYC). $500 non-refundable deposit due within 24 hr of close of auction, balance within 7 days unless you contact me.
