For Sale: 1985 Toyota Pickup in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1985 Toyota Pickup SR5 4x4 is a tribute to a true dream truck. After all, Marty McFly in Back to the Future got it in his ideal life, and we bet you thought it could fit ideally in yours, too. And because this is a freshly restored example of a sharp-looking A/C pickup, you're as close to Marty as reliving the best of 1985.

It's not just that this truck is a faithful replica of Marty McFly's 4x4 in Back to the Future, but the consignor states that all of the proceeds from the sale will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. So this is a replica that has an even larger feeling of authentic purpose. In fact, it comes from a company that specializes in creating the pickup from the movie. We're told it was delivered to them as a one-owner truck out of California. It was then given a full restoration that was completed earlier this year. It's a detailed package that gets the best pieces, like the lifted stance, 15-inch black wheels, tubular bumpers with bull bar up front, a matching tubular steel bed roll bar, and two types of KC lights. Heck, even the front license plate is a correct replica with a Statler Toyota plate guard. What we also like about the full package is that it is quite clean and glossy, but never meant to be a pure museum piece. So you can enjoy taking it to the Lone Pine Mall or driving your own Jennifer up to the lake.

The interior is loaded and well-presented. This Xtra Cab model means more room to recline those bucket seats. It's a true time capsule look everywhere from the dual-spoke steering wheel to the unique SR5 cloth pattern in the seats. But a truck like this is also out to remain useful. That's why they added the right upgrades for modern enjoyment, like the AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth. And the factory air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant.

Under the hood is the fuel-injected 2.4-liter motor. This is an actual miles pickup, but we're told that this was given a rebuild as part of the restoration. It has the fresh and clean look of a solid investment. We know a well-maintained 22R motor has a very robust reputation, and this one fires up and runs with the kind of feeling that reaffirms the right care. The undercarriage showcases more of this truck's freshness everywhere from the painted frame to the bright urethane bushings. The two-speed 4x4 transfer case combines with the suspension lift and the meaty Goodyear Wrangler tires to deliver a true go-anywhere attitude. But really, you know this one is going to have its most fun showing it off to everyone in town. So that's why you have easy driving features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs. And we're glad to see a proper five-speed example because part of the allure of these earlier import trucks is the ability to get the most out of a small but hardy powerhouse.

As you have probably seen from the pictures, the sale also comes with plenty of terrific additions to make for a true Back to the Future display. It includes Nike shoes, a hover board, Gray's Sports Almanac, a color-shift hat, two sleeping bags, and of course, the essential Save the Clock Tower flyer. You even have a Statler Toyota banner to drape across the side for parades. This replica has an awesome authenticity and a terrific cause. So if you shared Marty McFly's dream of the best Toyota 4x4 around, you know you need to open your garage to find this showcased inside.
