1981 Toyota Pickup

1981 Diesel Toyota Pickup.
One ofthe last early 1980’s ultra-low-mileage Diesel Toyota Pickups in existence. This is an absolute conversation starter; a well-preserved Toyota that was owned by a colorful character in Montana.
The non abused, low mileage, original diesel engine makes this a unicorn for any collector, and could easily be a daily-driver.
From what I was told, the previous owner passed away, and then I purchased it from an auction house in Montana last year. It’s been noted from the original owner’s family that the odometer has never gone around, so I believe the actual mileage is 27,0xx. I personally put over 1,500 miles on the truck, and the only mechanical issue I’ve encountered was a faulty fan clutch. It was running hot and a quick diagnosis led me to that. The radiator has some bent fins, so it appears someone else tried unsuccessfully to replace it previously. I decided to leave the radiator as-is, given the engine compartment is such a time-capsule. Temp is just fine now, cruising around town or on the freeway.
The truck has a ton of personality, and could be converted back to a regular bed and stock bumpers if desired. The interior plastic pieces have a coating of latex paint which seems to be holding fine. It all looks good, but worth noting.
All in all its a great truck, mechanically and visually. As reliable as any old Toyota, many of these diesels get well-over 40mpg!
I’ll include the CarFax report, which is super clean
