Classic Car Overview

They should have called these the Indestructibles , but instead Toyota just simply gave these little haulers the humble pickup name. But no matter what you call it, you get excited when you can find a fine example like this 1981 Toyota thats so well preserved and still has cold-blowing A/C. You likely already know this truck well. It was the vehicle that got you through school and/or never gave up on the jobsite. But the best part is the preserved condition of this example. 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. Even the decal stripes are believed to be original. And you can really see someone respected this truck. The sheetmetal has an amazing fit and finish after nearly four decades. Plus, the fitting of the color-matched fiberglass bed topper and the way the factory wheels still shine tell you this was someones baby. The same exceptional level of presentation/preservation is found on the inside, too. There are a few signs of use over a generation on the road, but the overall condition is a great representation on why these earned a tough-as-nails reputation. The two-tone cloth bench looks great and provides plenty of comfort. It coordinates nicely with the door panels and dash. The position of the factory steering wheel and floor gearshift have a bit of a sporty feeling. While all of this packaging seems tempting, it will be the list of all the right features that should seal the deal. This includes the factory AM/FM stereo, center console, sliding rear window, and ice-cold air conditioning that has been upgraded to R134a for easy servicing. You even have an auxiliary gauge trio and an aux input for the stereo expertly added for the right upgrades without spoiling the vintage atmosphere. Under the hood is what makes these Toyota pickups so desirable. The 2.4-liter 22R motor is the backbone on which Toyota has built their reputation for reliability. It looks fantastic, fires up readily, and runs like a good Toyota should. Its this level of originality that will make this pickup a true stunner as the market starts to get nostalgic for these tough Toyotas. But more than just collectability, the pickup has a lot of work and play left in it, too. The tight steering ratio, front disc brakes, and modern Uniroyal tires, all make it easy to drive. And the three-speed automatic transmission even has electronic overdrive. Complete with owners manual, this is an affordable way to enter a new class of rapidly appreciating classic vehicles. You already know how great these Toyota pickups are, so dont miss your opportunity at such a well-preserved example. Call today!!!
