Hey everyone. Iím unfortunately selling my 83 diesel pickup. Itís not a 4x4, but itís a VERY clean 2WD longbed 5speed.
This could be a great platform for a build. However I think itís far too nice to cut up. But being in California, itís a good opportunity to get your hands on a smog exempt first gen Pickup. (Third gen technically). Hereís the overall breakdown:
83 5-speed Longbed 2WD
Factory 2.2 liter L Diesel engine
553,xxx KM clocked, roughly 343,xxx miles
I believe this truck came from Canada, as its in kilometers.
Both batteries replaced about 2 months ago, along with the oil/filter changed.
Injection pump rebuilt last year
Minimal rust, all rust that was noticed was taken care of before repainting it to its factory brick-red color.
Converted the truck to the 79-81 round headlights, added the sr5 ďwood grainĒ dash, and replaced the little plastic mirrors with the big early style mirrors.
Also when I got the truck, it had a hideous grant steering wheel, so I replaced it with the steering wheel off my 71 Hilux. So thatís a bonus for whoever picks it up.
This guy runs like a CHAMP. The L Diesel engine is a dog, but reliable as hell. All Iíve used the truck for is picking up material and going to the dump around town.
Iíd love to sell this to someone who can appreciate it and take care of it, as its getting a lot harder to find this generation of pickup in its diesel form.
Asking $9,000. Located in Morgan Hill, CA
The only trade Iíd take is a pre-76 international travelall, depending on condition.
Thanks for reading all!
Hereís a link to the pictures of the truck. I hope it works, the pictures are too big to post through the forum https://photos.app.goo.gl/V6CQVFVHDymTjQwk8
