The 15k original miles ‘85 SR5

Hi folks.

Some of you may remember, a while back the post for a 15,000 mile 1985 4WD SR5 Wagon.

I ended up buying that car, to preserve it.

I sourced a set of original alloy wheels, had them refurbished, and got the air conditioning working. It’s a delightful car, and I plan to enjoy it while my family’s Tercel is being restored.

I am open to selling it once my project car is finished, and wanted to offer it up here first. Please reach out to me privately if interested. It’s amazing to drive one that smells and feels brand new.

( please note, that the clinometer is the old one from my car and is just sitting on the dash here. It can come with the car however.)

what ever the price, it would be worth it. I would love that car, but I know I could not afford it. Besides, I would likely use it up on the rough gravel roads I drive daily, so it would be a shame for me to use it as a daily driver.

It should be garaged and only driven to church on sundays, and the occasional car show.

With tercel numbers dwindling, it would be a shame to see perhaps the last "new" tercel in existence just get used as a daily driver. I hope whoever buys it realizes that.

I’m very interested and asked after it several times only to get no response. I’m glad to know it’s back. How much do you want for it?
