1988 Toyota Tercel DX

Offered for an appreciating new ownerat NO RESERVEis this 1988 Toyota Tercel DX two-door sedan!
Finished in grey metallic over grey and black tweed cloth, this 30+ year-old Tredcel sports a very good running 1.5 liter four cylinder engine mated to the factory automatic transmission, COLD A/C, hot heat, working original am/fm stereo, reclining seats, manual windows and original owner's manual.Offered here at NO RESERVE this is a great find for the classic car collector for less than the cost of the sales tax alone on a new Corolla!

This exterior of this 1988 Toyota is in quite good 99.9% rust-free condition overall with a nice shine to the overall paint finish. There is a small dent on left front fender, two of the tires could use replacement, along with a smattering of rock nicks, light scratches and other light cosmetic blemishes. This is still one very presentable little classic!

As I hope is articulated in the photos, the interior of this Tercel is in quite GOOD and VERY ORIGINAL condition overall with nice nice tweed cloth upholstery, original carpets and door panels, crack-free dash, working odometer, lights, blinkers, horn, stereo and other gauges. The headliner is sagging and pinned up and the side panel of the driver seat should be replaced. Otherwise this is one groovy original cockpit!

This 32 year-old classic starts easily with good running engine, smooth shifting automatic transmission, straight and true braking and and responsive steering. There is a pin hole in the exhaust system and while the transmission shifts fine, the differential is quite noisy and needing replacement. Check out the test drive video here:
