1987 Tercel 4WD SR5 + 1985 SR5 parts car & extras (Omaha, NE)

Selling my two Tercel wagons and small remainder of various parts and extras. Located in Omaha, NE. Cars are parked in two separate spots about 10 minutes apart from each other.

I would be very happy to sell all of this to a single buyer here on the forum and will consider offers for the entire lot. Both cars have clean titles. You can see some information about the evolution of my ownership of both of these cars in my thread here.

First is a 1987 Tercel 4WD SR5 with 150,202 miles that I've owned since November 2017. This car was my daily driver until about a month ago. Currently the car does not start. This is due to a fuel delivery issue and is likely a very simple fix, but unfortunately I no longer have any time or space to work on it and need to move on. I have a new fuel pump that I've installed but cannot seem to get the car going.

* Comes with 14" Miata daisy wheels and General Altimax RT43 tires
* Spare tire is good
* A/C blows cold and heat works (fan is a little noisy)
* Parking brake cable no longer functions. I have brand new-in-box parking brake cables that I will include with sale
* Back hatch inner trim is cracked so the center brake light has been dislodged, but it's all still there and the light functions without any issue.

Asking $1500 OBO, as-is, where-is. No reasonable offer refused. CLICK HERE FOR PICTURES.


Second is a 1985 Tercel 4WD SR5 with 250,xxx miles which I bought in Boise, ID with no rust; this car was my daily driver for a little less than a year, until I collided with a pickup truck at low speed last summer. In the collision the front half of the car's frame was bent, the horn popped off of the steering wheel, and the front grill came off (still have it and will include). All of the glass is good and everything behind the radiator was undamaged and can be used for parts. It has been sitting for a little over a year in an enclosed storage garage.

Asking $600 OBO. I have no way to tow or trailer this vehicle so you must bring your own. CLICK HERE FOR PICTURES (note that Miata wheels pictured are no longer on this car; it currently has the 13" steel white Toyota wheels on it).


EXTRAS (see here for pictures):

- three additional spare 13" stock Toyota wheels with mismatched tires currently mounted on them (not pictured)
- front passenger side CV axle shaft (remanufactured) (not pictured)
- set of two brand new Autopal HL109 halogen headlights + Bosch relays (never got around to swapping them in)
- set of new NGK spark plugs and wires
- two new timing belts, two new v-belts
- various trim pieces
- extra window crank handle + remover tool
- muffler

Nope. They're the white steel ones, the ones in the pictures in my post here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=12445#p96207

those look like great buys. If I had the time I would get them and turn both into good daily drivers and find a new home for them. Alas, I can not find time to properly maintain my own current projects. I am too busy right now with my regularly work that makes us a good income.

Someone needs to rescue these two worthy T4wd, particularly the rare '87. We are all here to help with advice!

'84 Tercel 4wd (daily driver, with on going mods)
'92 Mazda MPV 4wd (wife's daily driver)
'85 Tercel 4wd DLX auto(daughter's daily driver)
'01 Honda Civic (other daughter's daily driver)
