    Base model. 247000 original owner miles. New clutch and belts last week. Good tires. Never wrecked. Everything works as it should.

    Southern truck, no rust, no issues...with the exception of torn seat/drivers side.

    No mods. 4 cyl - 5 speed manual - air - am/fm - what do you think the truck would sell for?


    thanks in advance....

    I'd say 2500-5000. A vehicle that gets great mileage, has a bed, and toyota quality/reliability is always valuable. Look on your local craigslist for what similar tacomas go for. The most expensive maintenance issues with your truck are in good shape (tires/clutch).

    I'd say 2,000 max. Probably more like 1,500 though because of the super high mileage.

    Thanks. Didn't know how prudent it was to keep putting money into repairs or upgrades.

    You can find lower mile tacos in your price range maybe even go down 1K.Bought my 95 4x4 single cab 5speed with 128k for 3000 plus 500 in dmv fees....

    I bought it a few weeks ago for $750 from the original owner/friend of mine. Put 1k into it and thought it would be worth 3k but, maybe or maybe not. Probably not.
