1985 SR5 T4WD, CT

This forum is for cars that run, or at least are close to running. This isn't for parting out complete cars.

A reminder again of where this is located now?

Do you know if this engine/trans is original? Perhaps the previous owner in RI can jump back in and give some reference...

Not sure how my headline got changed to "Texas", but the car is in CT. ;)

“admin changed Texas to CT on above post for clarity”

Any chance you want to get rid of a few interior parts?

I'll sell you whatever part you want, they each cost $500. ;)

My mechanic might take it as a parts runner. There's too much car here to start parting it out unfortunately.

how much to do you want for it? I did not see a price.

what would it need to be able to drive it safely across several states?

If it I can fix anything it needs there, I might consider flying out and driving it back here for a road trip. I am over due for road trip.

ALL SR5's are manual- DX's come in M/T or A/T.
if it aint there, there's a good chance it won't break!
83 SR5 Silver/Blue (Snowmobile/work beater)-totaled but drivable
85 SR5 Blue
88 SR5 White (the 'good' one)-not anymore-totaled
87 fwd silver wagon a/t
87 4wd dx Cream (a/t- not anymore- now m/t)

Sure, just come on down to CT and you can drive your interior home!

I'll also include two older snow tires that came with the car.

@Petros: I sent you a PM/ I've only really driven it for about 100 miles, but it starts every time (with a couple of cranks when it's cold). Shifts smooth, clutch is in good shape. Doesn't smoke. It has (inop) A/C bits. Rust was treated with POR15, most painted over. Only holes were in the D/S A pillar and below the D/S rear side window. Both patched with fiberglass and painted over. Ants are gone ;)

I love a Petros Road Trip to save a Tercel! Hopefully this rescue mission can come together!
