Re: *title now clean* 1985 Tercel 4WD SR5, white; Odessa, TX, $500

It seems like surface rust on the underbody and fasteners. I am pretty confused about the holes in the floor, honestly.

Re: *title now clean* 1985 Tercel 4WD SR5, white; Odessa, TX, $500

White one doesn't have a rear windshield, horn is dead, front suspension makes ominous clunks, and I think it still wanders around. It didn't seem to do it when I drove it to my parents' house, but I don't trust that impression. Also I think front transmission seal is leaking on the clutch, but it c...

Re: *title now clean* 1985 Tercel 4WD SR5, white; Odessa, TX, $500

If someone would buy it for $500, I would actually just leave everything on the car, including wheels, steering wheel, and weber carb.

Re: *title now clean* 1985 Tercel 4WD SR5, white; Odessa, TX, $500

We can't keep them, we have nowhere to store them while we wait for anything better, and I don't have time to strip them of good parts. My parents have been upset about the white one being out front for weeks, and my fiance and I don't have our own place. No one was interested in buying them and no ...

Re: *title now clean* 1985 Tercel 4WD SR5, white; Odessa, TX, $500

We found someone on Craigslist to take it for free this weekend, as well as the other one. Probably both going to the crusher.

Re: Zach's 1985 4WD Tercel Wagon

I have nowhere to keep it and the neighbors and my parents are complaining about it. I don't want to part with either of the Tercels, but that's how it's probably going to have to work out.

Re: Zach's 1985 4WD Tercel Wagon

I figured out the fuel pump relay. I hadn't realized that it could be run in parallel, as my electrical courses didn't involve making circuits (just reading diagrams and following them). I also was a little confused about whether the voltage would choose one branch over the other for some reason. I ...

Re: 1985 SR5 parts

Sorry about the late response. I found out that the title wasn't going to have punitive fines for a late transfer, due to the age of the car. I will be able to sell the whole thing!

Re: 1985 Tercel 4WD SR5, white; Odessa, TX; title problems; $500

Well, I looked around for any loopholes around the issues. As it turns out, a lot of the title transfer information is buried in the title manual on the DMV site. I thought there would be a fine of $250 for delinquent title transfer (more than 30 days have passed since we bought it) on the Tercel. I...

Re: 1985 SR5 parts

The interior is dark blue, but I painted the dash matte black.

If you mean the inclinometer, it was gone when I got the car.

I will test the wiper switch out.

Ah, and can I get a picture or diagram of the vacuum switch locations? Or a description.

1985 SR5 parts *edit: car no longer must be parted out*

I found out the title wasn't going to have fines for the transfer because it's over 25 years old. I was able to transfer the title, so now the car is for sale as a whole vehicle.

*gone* 1985 Tercel 4WD SR5, white; Odessa, TX, $500

EDIT: I was able to transfer the title. The car still isn't registered, but the title is clean. I really need to do something about this vehicle. I haven't really had time to mess with it and it's upsetting my family members and neighbors. You will want to probably bring a trailer for this. If the ...

Re: 85 Tercel 4WD, 5 speed manual, white, $1200 OBO

It goes into 4WD and back again. The more accidentally you engage the FWD-4WD lever, the more easily it switches...lol

But yeah, I have driven it in both modes and there don't seem to be any issues.
