1987 Tercel Wagon SR5 -6 speed (Free) in Michigan

Post by flagtercel » Mon Nov 13, 2017 10:24 am

Tercel Wagon for free in Traverse City, Michigan - I own the wagon that "83toybeater" built with the 4AFE engine swap - Looking to pass it along to a fellow Tercel lover. Has a blown head gasket - not wanting to spend money to fix it, too many other toys and projects going on. Really good shape still, no rust (Arizona Car). Has all new brakes and suspension, two sets of 14" summer and winter tires, transmission is still great, 200,000 on the body. Clean title in hand. Excellent parts car, or toss another crate engine in it. If interested feel free to give me a call anytime - Jamie (970)497-0283.

Definitely interested. Does it have A/C? And everything besides the head gasket okay?

newplaner - it does not have ac - it was deleted during the engine swap - it was my daily driver until it started running poorly about a month ago - it starts right up and idles - but it starts running like crap and trying to stall when it gets up to temperature - then it starts leaking antifreeze once its good and warm? - the only other flaw is that it needs a new muffler welded onto the end of the tail pipe - rusted at the neck after one Michigan winter.

Where are you located? It would have to be tossed onto a flatbed to haul home.

I really want it, just time is always tight for me. Are you for hire? haha Need cash, car repair, set of new tires, etc?
Is there current tabs on it? I think you need them even with a tow dolly. Touch the road, pay the price..

Thanks for the consideration!
