A RARE 1992 Gem found in 2015 memory lane..

Yup sitting at a dealer nearby. Owner of dealer and for no amount of money will he sell it, (trust me I tried lol). Absolutely mint not a single chip, nothing. Found at a farmers old barn under tarp for last 18 years (no lie). Just over 3100 km on the ODO. Wow hey fellas?!

This was a real treat 1992 was my first taco to, aside from color this was same as mine...

Funny thing I know he paid super low. A widowed farm gal had no idea what she had there, he surely did. Story was the old boy went from his farm once a week to get groceries and mail and that was extent of it, he passed on and truck sat in a barn. I know new owner has been offered 30k for it already and has refused. Not going to lie, I'd probably never sell it based on just how incredibly minty it is. Don't even think I'd drive it, just ooogle over it in garage at nite when need a cheer me up session just beautiful imo.

I wish I could find the link, but in Japan toyota has started collecting old fj80's to restore and update the interior/electronic features and sell them. I wish toyota would 1.) Start doing that here and 2.) Do it with the MK1 tacoma, early pickups and 4runners

Sure thing. Some one posted it here a few weeks back

Edit: found it. It was the fj70, not fj80

Only flaw with that truck is the engine.

Worst motor in Toyota history. 3VZE... 3. slow head gasket destroying nightmare.

My dad has 2 of those trucks with that exact trim and engine just one white one green.. both have motors with rebuilds and less than 120k on the clocks..

He is a gluten for punishment as he repairs them himself and he's on what I think is his 5th truck/4runner with that motor.

That thing is really nice - thanks for posting the pictures. I'm not sure I'd drive it, if I had it

It's amazing how little the 1st Gen's changed over the span of 22 years. Unless the 92 pictured wouldn't be considered a 1st gen because it's not a "Tacoma". Either way, the similarities are very noticeable.
