1986 Toyota Pickup Short Bed 2.2 from North America
This is one Super pickup truck
At 55,000 the clutch went around the same time the Front Caliper went and the calipers went again, at about 82,000. Now it sounds like the thorow out bearing needs replacement, as it cannot be greased. And the regulator on the driver window went bad. But never left me stranded and always starts.
If the clutch is popped it lays wheels all throughout First Gear and 'chirps' if popped into second. Except for hoses and belt, and above meantione items, all else is new, on the p/u when I drove it off the lot in '86 I am the original owner. It cost me $5800 in October 1986.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1986 Toyota 2wd 22R, long bed Red... It's a simple, clean, and mechanically sound running machine without all that computer crap. Original miles at 245,000 miles and running strong. I bought this used in 1989, had 60,000 on it. Getting ready to change my timing chain for the second time since owning my beloved Toyota Truck. I paid cash, 4,5000.00 back then, and have never ever had a car payment in my life... Whoa...

Considering that a new Toyota pickup started at around $6K back in 1986, paying $5500 for a 24 year old one doesn't sound like such a great deal.

These trucks hold their value because they are amazingly well-built. I have a 17 year old Tacoma myself, and even with over 250,000 miles, it's still valued at around $5,000.

Wonder if my 57 Corvette has held its value since it was new?
