1985 Tercel SR5 wagon, 261K -- $1000 cash only
Ad updated 6/6/18 (ad originally posted 6/1/18)

Up for sale is the original mountain car! This thing is a beast! With the 4 wheel drive and skinny tires it just flies through the snow. It is pretty hilarious the looks you get when you are cruising through stuff the big suvs get stuck in. The 4wd is shift on the fly. In 2wd with summer tires the car gets around 30 mpg. Of course depending on how fast it is driven. If you average 55 mph or lower it will get 35ish. This is a 6 speed manual transmission. 5spd in 2wd and a granny low in 4wd. Trans shifts smooth, clutch feels good. Rated at 65hp she is no speed demon but w the manual transmission it easily keeps up with traffic. Front tires have maybe 5000 miles on them, rears are at about 40%. Comes with an extra set of studded snow tires mounted on wheels for easy and cheap changeover. Radio was stolen years ago, factory harness intact, just need to plug in a stock one or put in an upgrade. No AC, who needs AC in the mountains. Roll down those windows and breathe in that fresh air! Heat works great. All windows roll up and down well. Timing belt was done at 187k, currently at 262ish. Has some rust, paint isn't great, has some dents and dings, has a very small oil leak, but it does what an old Toyota does best, run and drive with no frills. I have been told one of the axles will need replaced, I have 2 spares for when it does. Drives about as well as a 262,000 mile car is expected to drive. Great commuter, car has been driven cross country 2 or 3 times a year for the last 10 years. Will run 70+ with ease.

1985 Tercel SR5 wagon (Terzilla)
261,xxx miles
Timing belt not due for another 26k.
Recent repairs include
Fuel pump
Tune up w fuel filter, plugs, wires
Comes w Studded snow tires mounted on wheels

I am only selling because we are moving and need to downsize. I own 2 Tercel wagons and keeping the other one because it only has 113,000 miles. I would not sell this but we will not have room for the extra car.

The car has a salvage title from an accident 15 or 20 years ago, I cannot remember for sure. Never has bothered me or the previous owner. I am sure if I look hard enough I can find evidence of the damage but it drives fine so never cared. I bought this from a friend and it has been well maintained.

$1000 title in hand, cash only and no, I will not take trades or payments.

1983 Tercel SR5 wagon, odometer mileage not given, not running, been sitting for 18 years -- $1300 OBO
Date of listing: 6/6/18

I'm selling my 1983 Toyota Tercel project car this car has been sitting for 18 years but the engine runs strong will need work. Comes as a complete car not drivable at the moment because it needs brakes, and the gas tank cleaned out.
This car is getting very hard to find so you can fix it up or use it for parts to fix yours.
Just testing the waters
Remember this is a project car

1984 Tercel 4WD wagon, manual tranny, 170K -- $700
Date of listing: 6/5/18

Selling my lil' red Toyota tercel hatchback. Runs and drives, 4x4 is solid. Needs some suspension work because it's as old as the hills, but engine is strong! It's a classic and every Toyota geek at every gas station will tell you how cool it is!

Interior is rough, but who cares, this car is bitchin' and priced to sell. Make me an offer. Will consider trade for letting me ride one of your horses approximately four times a month and/or a working sewing machine.

1985 Tercel SR5 wagon, 130K, needs clutch -- $450
Date of listing: 6/4/18

This low-mileage (130,000) Tercel is complete, and runs smooth. As you can see it has rust issues. Engine, trans, 4wd all work good. Near perfect interior. 2 sets of almost new tires, summer & winter. Just needs a clutch, or you could use the good parts off of it. Had just bought a brand new toyota oem brass radiator, maybe one of the last available! My son and I were going to fix it up but changed directions- we had started to fill the rusted panels with foam & treat the rust in prep to paint bedliner over it, to get some more years of use out of it. Clean & clear title. 450.00

1985 Tercel SR5 wagon, 235K, not running -- $800 OBO
Ad updated on 6/4/18 (ad originally placed 5/30/18)

This car does not currently run, but is in fine shape otherwise.

A great vehicle and well worth getting back on the road.

I am moving and have another vehicle so I just need to let go of this.

The body is straight and the interior clean. It shows the age of a 33-year-old car in cracking rubber, some very minor rust and fading paint, but it sure makes up for all that in charisma and character.

Make me an offer!
