For Sale: 1986 Toyota Pickup in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

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 well-priced example like this 1986 Toyota with 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. The condition reflects the truck that you knew, too. It's not perfect, but there is a clean and complete presentation that lets you drive it with pride. So this attractive style is rooted in details like the straight sheet metal that allows the brown stripe to look so distinct against the beige body. And the black bumpers and grille go nicely with the upgraded 17-inch black alloys.

The same attractive 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 of why these earned a tough-as-nails reputation. But while the legend is robust, this one feels downright comfortable. It has been tweaked in the right places for additions that also don't look or feel out of place. This includes a pop-out sunroof, cup holders, a recovered two-ton bench seat, and factory air conditioning now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant. In fact, the most noticeable upgrade is the radio. Purists can source an old stock unit, but we like the upgraded driving music from a modern unit with USA and Bluetooth capabilities.

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 its reputation for reliability. It looks fantastic, fires up readily, and runs like a good Toyota should. 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. The tight steering ratio, power steering, power brakes, front disc brakes, and modern tires afforded by the wheel upgrade, all make it easy to drive. And the three-speed automatic transmission even has electronic overdrive.

Complete with owner's manual, this is an affordable way to enter a new class of classic vehicles that's rapidly appreciating. You already know how great these Toyota pickups are, so don't miss your opportunity at such a fun vintage example. Call today!!
