1987 4WD Van - WTT for 4WD Manual Wagon

Post by Grendle »

Hi,

If there's a better place to post this, please let me know. I did scan the readme and noticed other wanted ads in this section, so hopefully it's good.

I don't have a wagon yet, but I'm looking for one, and figured this would be a good place to start. have a 1987 Toyota 4x4 auto van with 250K miles that I'd like to trade for a manual 4x4 wagon. The van is may daily driver, runs well, has a clean interior, is dented along the passenger side column between front and side doors, and has a slightly mismatched sliding door and fully mismatched rear hatch. It's a fun weird Toyota, but I really want a fun weird Toyota with a manual transmission, and haven't had any luck finding a donor van to swap with.

If anyone is interested in a trade, please shoot me a reply or pm. I'm located in Dallas, but recently drove it out to Phoenix and back, so I'd be willing to drive a ways to make the trade happen if we come to a pretty firm arrangement ahead of time. Value wise vans in decent condition seem to sell for a bit more than wagons in decent condition, so I figure something in similar shape or that matches a bit better on the outside probably would be reasonable and preferable, but I mostly just want to enjoy my drive at least as much as I do now, so I'm open to whatever fits that bill.

Depending on the trade, comes with a new roof basket and awning as well as my pick and pull spare parts stash.

Thanks,
Taylor

Great looking van and probably worth a lot more in the north west. would make a great camper project for someone. There are a couple of memebers on here with them if you do a search. No problem with putting it up here for offer! good luck!

Thanks! I'm currently in the process of adding some sound deadening to offset the mud tire noise. So far so good; next areas are the passenger side engine bay, and possibly doors if it looks like I won't need to re-order panel clips after pulling. My theory on old trim is don't pull it out until you need to.

A quick update - I just bought a wagon; I think I'm still up for a trade, but definitely less up for another road trip.
