Question Anyone ever also wheel the 80s 4WD trecels?

A dumbass buddy of mine in nashville had a 88 4WD 5spd trecel all perfectly functional b/c he was a mechanic. I wish I had the video still but we were pulling it through 2.5-3 foot puddles and riding up 4 foot berms no problem all stock. Toyota was just on there shit in the late 80s.

I've ALWAYS wondered this. they're solid axle, no?

I saw Jesse's on Breaking Bad and was weirded out by how old it was to be 4WD and how low to the ground it is. I wonder if you can lift it

I am not thinking it was. It was just a crappy little wagon that happened to be 4wd. It was exactly like jesses

I've been looking for a clean one of those for a LONG time. They are getting harder and harder to find. Especially non-rusty ones that people aren't asking crazy money for. Anybody in SoCal looking to get rid of one?

79-84 Subaru gl 4x4 wagons are also a good choice. They have 4hi and 4low and wheel amazingly well.....given the ground clearance. I have owned 3 of them and they all went over 250K on original engine/tranny.

I had an '84 Subaru GL for a couple of years, that thing would go through sand like nothing else. One time we got a couple of 4wd trucks stuck in sand and the Subbie pulled both of them out...

X2 on the Subie! I had an 87 GL wagon. Awesome car! I put that thing through hell. It was great for Vermont mud season, never a fear of getting stuck. My most memorable moment was bring out in a big snow storm with a buddy and going through FEET of snow. So much snow that it was coming up over the hood and onto the windshield. That thing just plowed right through! I always hated the silly e brake in it though.

My mom had one of these things. My brother flogged it hard. I flogged it even harder and it just wouldn't die. I remember taking it out with a buddy before I turned 16 and finding the soggiest field we could and just worked that thing over! My late appologies to the farmer.

My parents had an 84 Tercel 4WD wagon when I was little. The only time 4WD was ever used is when my Dad wanted to use the "Extra Low" gear to crawl in SoCal traffic lol.

A good friend of mine bought a Toyota Tercel sometime in the mid-80's. The first impression was how flimsy it was made (thin body panels, plastics, etc). My BMW was built like a tank by comparison.

The second impression, while riding in it, was how much of a cow it was (slow top end, sluggish acceleration, etc). We were living in Germany at the time, and I honestly felt we would likely need an appointment to merge onto the autobahn.

Needless to say, I wouldn't rush out to buy one - then or now.

My 83 Dirty Terc.




1.5l L4 only gives about 60 ponies, so yeah it's not much for power, but it'll go and go and go.

I fell in love with these in 5th grade when I got a toy 4x4 Tercel with my Happy Meal. Anyone here old enough to remember Stomper toys?
