We're really starting to look out for those few well preserved and
maintained classic Toyota trucks, and this example turns the desire
up a notch. It's an exceptionally preserved Toyota Pickup Xtra Cab.
And not only are you going to love the originality, but it also has
all the features you really want, like cold-blowing A/C and a
This pickup is not done in neon colors or has a booming exhaust,
and yet, you know you're going to attract attention in this Toyota.
It has the crisp lines and well-respected look you don't find on
many trucks that are past the 35-year mark. But that's why you look
for a dry climate Arizona classic where even the white paint is
believed to be original on this Toyota. And you can really see
someone respected this truck. The sheetmetal has an amazing fit and
finish after nearly four decades. Even the fiberglass bed topper
continues to have a proper fit. The clean grille, correct badging,
full mud guards, and chrome rear step bumper are all part of the
detailed package that's out to impress with its stock style. It's a
full reminder that these trucks were built right to last for
The interior is loaded and well-preserved. For example, this Xtra
Cab model means more room to recline those bucket seats. And
speaking of the seats, they have an awesome cloth pattern that has
been amazingly preserved. It's a true time capsule look everywhere
from the dual-spoke steering wheel to the taut door panels. But a
truck like this is also out to remain useful. That's why they added
the right upgraded for modern enjoyment, like the AM/FM/CD stereo
with aux input. And the factory air conditioning is now blowing
cold with modern R134a refrigerant.
Under the hood is what makes this preserved Toyota so desirable. We
love this generation pickup because the 22R motor is part of a
series that's one of the most celebrated hardy engines out there.
It looks fantastically honest, fires up readily, and runs strong.
It's this level of originality that will make this pickup a true
stunner as the market continues 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. It's fun to drive with power
steering, power front disc brakes, a nimble feeling, and the
control of a five-speed manual transmission.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a well preserved/maintained
Toyota that knows how to get attention from real enthusiasts. Call
