As much as I loved my FJ, it just did not suit my needs anymore. So, I sold it to my uncle and in the same week purchased a 1985 Toyota 4Runner. The P/O had all the original paperwork, including sales receipts and maintenance receipts dating back to the 80's. I knew a chance like this was one in a life time considering all the paperwork and the condition, considering it is a 23 year old truck. Now on to the good stuff
The day I picked it up
It came with the original fenders, which are pretty rusty. I also received the A/C unit in pieces, but who needs A/C when the topper comes off? The truck also came with a ton of really cool little things, but I will get to those later . Drove it 5 hours back from Raleigh without a hiccup. I did stop a few times to check for leaks and why the check engine light kept coming on, but as it turns out it comes on any time I go 60+ mph

I have not messed with the sunroof too much, but I was told it still works.
Some problem areas.
And a fully working back glass, it goes/down up via key lock on the tail gate or the switch in the cab.
On to some interior shots.
And here are some of my favorite things about this 4Runner.
Here is a shot of the original owners info.
Original owners manual.
And the original owners guide.
Also in there was some old registration receipts the oldest one I found dated back to 1992.
And the stack of receipts.
What is in the little black pouch?! I bet it has something to do with this:
It is a small lamp that hangs from the hood!
And it still works!
In the back cubbies I found some more goodies
And in the green pouch are....
Actual Toyota tools. Everything but the green and red handled screwdrivers have "Toyota" stamped on them.
I am sure this list will grow over time, but these are some of the mods I am going to tackle first.
