I recently got obsessed with the 81-83 Toyota 4x4 and I've always heard good things about their 22r engines. I see one of Craigslist for 2k, but I'm sure I can bring him down. Im not sure if it runs, and the body has some rust, nothing that looks major, but overall it looks like all the parts are there. I was wondering how much it would cost to restore the truck. Paint, engine (last thing, if it has low miles) electrical (if needed) and 4x4 stuff, assuming the transmission is good.
Also, is all the talk about the reliability good? Any stories anyone wants to share?
This is what I'd like it to look like, but with that nice metallic gunmetal grey the 2nd gens have (Whats the name of that color?)
