Looking for a Tercel in Montana or nearby

Post by wminman » Tue May 16, 2017 9:23 pm

Hi! I have been on the hunt for months now for a Tercel in good shape in Montana or nearby Idaho or Washington. I would love to find one that has a good body and interior. I'm okay with putting some $$ into it. Any help would be appreciated! We had one years ago and we sold it and I've regretted it ever since.

I'm in central Nebraska if you are interested. I'm about to post mine up for sale. Bit off a little more than I could chew honestly. I work way too much and it's been sitting for a while. Runs and drives, clean title. Rusty but trusty lol. Brand new tires all around, interior isn't the best. I'll be posting pictures soon. New alternator. As of right now I know it needs tie rods, bushings, and probably a brake job. It's an 86 SR5 manual with 209k.

Thanks SnowLeopardSR5, I'm hoping to hold out for one in pretty good shape. But I really appreciate your response :)
