My tercel:: 1983 Tercel AL25 break 4WD 68cv

Greetings from France

Hello everyone,

My first post here, glad to find that awesome forum about that fantastic car.

Mine is from 1983, 4WD wagon AL25 68cv, 125 000 KM

some points of rust but healthy base (it has been treated back in the days by my grandfather).

I don't regret to have keep it. Really fun to drive arround! Not many of those have been imported in France so feeling like some kind of VIP today ;))) Leaving nearby the mountains and the beach southwest and this baby is always keen to challenge off road..

(Since, some idiot has scratched the original prints on the back window "my toyota is fantastic", leaving cigarette butts crushed on the bodywork. The work of jealous (i guess)... they can go to hell!)

cheers

That's probably one of ten Tercels left in that shape--consider yourself lucky!

welcome to the forum Alex!

That is a remarkably well preserved Terel4wd. You are lucky indeed, it is nice that it was bought new within the family. You now have a tradition to keep up.

Viva la Tercel!

Nice to have you join us.

Welcome! Or perhaps I should write Bienvenue?
Beautiful car - your gpaw took remarkable care of it! What is the mileage?
