1982 Toyota Pickup Delux Longbed 2WD 22R from North America
Typical Toyota longevity
I owned it for about a year and replace no parts.
It leaked oil out of the front seal but I never bothered to fix it.
Back brakes locked up very easily in freezing weather. Don, t know if that was a common flaw or if something was wrong with the brakes.
The biggest issue by far was the carburetor. I the truck sat idle for a few days at a time it would flood out intermittently. If it was used regularly it worked great. I tried several times to fix the overly complicated carb and gave up. This was the main reason I sold it.
Drove very well for having over 300,000 miles. Handled well too.
The 22R was still going strong, used very little oil and got decent mileage.
Leg room was acceptable, but the seat was a back killer. Being low slung and with a small door makes it difficult for a tall person to get in and out of easily.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
