CLEAN & ORIGINAL SOUTHERN 4RUNNER, CLEAN CARFAX, WELL SORTED, GOOD DOCUMENTATION
Here's the SUV that launched the legend. 1985 Toyota 4Runner in loaded premium SR5 trim has the perfect mix of preservation and recent big investments to give you a legendary SUV that runs great and looks terrific inside and out. So you'll want to show off the 4x4 everywhere.
Today we know the 4Runner as equal parts cool and rugged. But this one was sold only a few months into the SUV's first run of the first generation. So the level of care and respect this groundbreaker received tells you someone understood how special it was from day one. The cream color paint is believed to be original, and it radiates the kind of gloss and shine that tells you that this has led a comfortable life. Plus, the condition of the black fiberglass roof and bright 15-inch wheels all are good signs that this go-anywhere 4x4 never really spent much time off the pavement. But even if you never leave the blacktop, this 4Runner look the part of an off-road machine thanks to the tall stance and new rear bumper with swing-away rear tire mount.
The same exceptional level of presentation/preservation is found on the inside, too. The door panels, dash, cloth seats, and so much more look original and amazing. The overall condition is a great representation of why these earned a tough-as-nails reputation. Plus, the tan and brown coordinate nicely with the cream exterior. That's especially important any time you want to remove the fiberglass top for a convertible SUV experience. This survivor-grade interior comes with some great features like the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo and even the sought-after factory clinometer. Plus, the air conditioner has been upgraded to R134a for easy servicing. The position of the factory steering wheel and gearshift have a bit of a sporty feeling, which has made these 4Runners popular driver's machines.
Under the hood is what makes these Toyotas so desirable. The 2.4-liter fuel-injected 22R motor is the backbone on which Toyota has built their reputation for reliability. And it only gets better when you find out the right investments have been made along the way. For example, top end (heads, water pump, timing chain, etc.) was serviced and rebuilt in 2011. Plus, the clutch and five-speed manual transmission were serviced then, too. There was even a full fluid change (engine oil, front/rear differential gear, transmission, and transfer case) within the last few months. So this maintained machine fires up and runs like a good Toyota should. And its level of originality will make this a true stunner as the market continues to grow nostalgic for these tough Toyotas. But more than just collectability, the 4Runner has a lot of work and play left in it, too. The two-speed transfer case for true 4x4 ability, power steering, front disc brakes, and modern Goodyear Wrangler tires, all make this a fun choice to run around town or the trail.
The sale comes with some impressive paperwork, including the original window sticker, owner's manual, and over $5k in maintenance receipts. You already know how great these Toyotas are, so don't miss your opportunity at such a well preserved example. Call today!!!
