this is an area of the USA where T4WD's rarely show up at the yards, especially looking this good

looks like it still has the inclinometer too

if I lived nearby and needed parts, I'd hop on this one pronto... before it gets picked over and/or gets taken to the crusher

what a shame, looks like a good body, factory alloys, interior looks decent, appears to have factory sun roof.

wonder how it ended up in the wrecking yard. some lazy mechanic told them it was not worth repairing most likely, little did he know that car could be worth $3000 or more once fixed.

Body coloured mirrors and window rain guards are something I haven't seen before

good eye Mattel... didn't notice the body-colored mirrors, that's a nice touch

my '87 T4WD came with rain guards for both front-seat windows, but it looks like the '83 pictured has them on the back-seat window too

Rain guards are awesome.
That whole car looks good! someone should try and buy the whole thing.

I noticed the matching mirrors too, and the rain gaurds on the windows. you can not buy those anymore, might be worth a trip to get those alone.
