here's another batch of 4WD Tercel wagons that have recently been listed -- or updated and relisted -- on Craigslist... the most recent are listed first

please, do NOT contact me concerning these listings, you'll have to go through the actual seller via their Craigslist ad


Seattle, WA

https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/cto/ ... 42219.html

1986 Tercel SR5 wagon, 328K miles -- $1500
Date of listing: 2/11/18

I've got a good little 5 speed, 4 wheel drive wagon with a lot of heart. She's 32 years old, so if you're looking a pristine car, you're in the wrong place.

Everything works, but everything could probably use some work. She runs, drives, shifts, and stops like a champ. I've replaced the front axles, oil, thermostat, heater core, and battery. I'm only selling her because it turns out I hate front wheel drive and want airbags. It would not take much to get her to daily-driver status.

She comes with a set of 4 studded tires on wheels with a all the studs and a ton of tread left.

TWO Tercel 4WD wagons (1984 DLX w/ auto trans., clear title, blown head gasket, 295K) + (1984 SR5, stuck in gear, MISSING TITLE, 236K) -- $450 for the pair (previously listed at $350 each, and $500 for the pair)
Date of listing: updated 2/9/18 (first listed in early January, and several times since then)

I have two Toyota four wheel drive lil wagons up for grabs for only $450., and that's for both!
One is the SR5 with the 6 speed manual tranny the other is an automatic
No rust or dent on either. The automatic has power-steering and air conditioning
The manual tranny one is stuck in a gear and I can't figure it out. It does have a very strong running engine, with newer radiator
The one with the automatic one runs but needs a new head-gasket.
Both start right up and run. The one with the automatic has clean title the other is "missing"!
Great deal for the price. Will consider trades, and will consider selling separate

1983 Tercel SR5 wagon, 345K miles (90K on rebuilt engine) -- $3500
Date of listing: updatd 2/7/18 (first listed about 1/24/18)

I have a 1983 Toyota Tercel 4x4 wagon. It has the 5 speed manual transmission with the extra low gear. The engine only has 90k miles on the rebuilt engine. I have every piece of paperwork where anything was done to the car. The car runs fantastic and it gets 30mpg. Everything works on the car including the factory A/C. This car is my daily driver. It just passed smog without any issues. The rims are not stock and either is the radio but other than that she's exactly how she came off the showroom floor. In the past year I have put $3k into her in new parts. The guy who had the car before me hit a deer twice. The hood is not the original and the ding on the left door was a result from the deer as well. The paint is fading and the seat has a rip. It's not a showstopper but it's an awesome car. I am firm on the price. I'm in no rush to sell her.

1987 Tercel SR5 wagon, needs a little work, 277K miles -- $1400
Date of listing: updated 2/5/18 (first listed about 1/17/18)

This has been my project vehicle for the past few years. I rescued it out of someone's yard in New Mexico where it had sat. Has been an Arizona / New Mexico vehicle its whole life. It was destined to be a parts car but I got it everything it was missing and now it's complete again.

4wd, 6 speed manual, A/C, power sunroof, roof rack, ran and drove when parked last May, will start right up with gas poured in the carb but won't stay running since the fuel system is dry and gas is old (will need trailering anyway because it could use a good look over the drivetrain since I haven't gotten through everything)

Transmission was dropped and had all the seals replaced. New CV axles installed with transmission. Has a new timing belt installed with 0 miles. New exhaust from the header back. Clutch has plenty of life left. Tires all have good tread and steel wheels replaced with Toyota alloys. A bit of dry rot on the edges. Oil / filter changed last year before being parked. Has a bunch of spare parts in the back too.

Feel free to ask questions. These are cool cars and this one deserves a home that will take good care of it.

p.s. I do not need help selling this please stop calling me I hate you
