$ 300 !

Such a deal for a T4WD owner (2WD Owners, need not apply :P :roll: )
Snatch on it, someone!
Well, before the seller's 'ciggie' self-extinguishes from embarrassment ...

I'm sure I could buy a whole car for that price!

I contacted the seller, and he said that he was listing this for a friend, and further reported that his ad's caveat of "not for an SR5" was accurate - TRUE?
Wasting TOO much time, I looked at my '85 and '86 OMs, as well as the '85 FSM PDF and could find nada.
Any response from a DLX 4WD owner?
Yes - I'm retired, so searching for the number of angels who can dance on the head of a pin is intriguing! :roll:

I've got one I'd gladly sell for half what that guy wants. Came out of an '84 FWD M/T wagon I bought in 1994 (my first Tercel wagon.)
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)

It makes sense for it to be for a DLX because the SR5s already had a digital clock in the dash, thus removing the need for this bizarre little trim piece.

who would spend that much for a part on a Non-SR-5 Tercel? It would work in all 2nd gen, non-SR-5, 2wd and 4wd.

SR-5 have better seats (fabric), and a tachometer plus clock in the instrument cluster, and usually better wheels and exterior trim. SR-5 only comes with the manual 5-speed-plus-EL trans. there are a few other minor upgrades, some in two tone paint, but mostly the nicer interior trim is worth it alone.

Well I've swapped the tach into mine for the cool price of $25, and I'm on the search for some clean SR5 seats, preferably blue. Don't the sr5s also have a sunroof? That seems to me to be more trouble than it's worth.

No, the sunroof is not on all SR-5s. I have owned, fixed up, and driven about 12 different SR-5 and only two had with the sun roof. it was an option. on a car without AC, the sun roof is actually a nice alternative to rolling the window down in the summer, but where I live in the PNW it is a troublesome option in the rain, and prone to have some of the parts break, that are no longer available.

You are still missing the cool looking SR-5 trim strips on the outside, but those too are not worth the effort.

I added it to my watch list, only to give him some hope.
