1985 Beautiful 1st Gen 4Runner $7000 OBO

1985 4Runner 4x4 -- Best in the Southeast
139,000 original miles
Solid Axle
Title in hand
Will be removed on 18 DEC

Listed is probably the cleanest 1985 1st Gen 4Runner in the southeast. I purchased it from the son of a man who had passed away in Alabama. The truck had been his pride, and he took phenomenal care of it. It was garage kept and entirely stock, except for the visor, the running boards, a new R134 A/C compressor, and two aftermarket speakers in the rear bed. I flew down to Alabama, saw it, fell in love with it, and drove it home that day. At 129,000 miles (the point in which I purchased it) I changed the fluids and drove her home for 12hrs without burning a single drop of oil or coolant.

I purchased this with the hope of putting some time and work into it, possibly turning it into an expedition-level vehicle, but I am moving next week and I have realized I cannot afford to move two vehicles. At the bottom of the ad is a list of aftermarket extras I have purchased but not installed.


-Totally clean, rust free frame

-Very clean body minus typical small dents/scratches (there is a bubble of paint smaller than a dime below the gas cap, a common place in these trucks - I was going to have reputable autobody shop clean it up and match the paint)

-Extremely clean interior, except for a rip in the driver seat

-100% functional (rear window, A/C, radio, etc.)

-100% reliable - never let me down

Extras that can be included in sale (all items listed are new in box):

Soft-Topper (Tan)
Bikini Top (Black)

Marlin Crawler vented high performance rotors
Marlin Crawler V6 Brakes

Old Man Emu (2.5" HD lift kit):
HD Springs
Steering Stabilizer

Toyo Open Country M/T 33x10.5x15 (mounted on wheels below)
Toyota 2nd Gen 4Runner 15x7 factory wheels

Happy to answer questions, but only contact me if you are a serious buyer.
