    So my buddy's family owns a Toyota maintence shop and they have a large collection of toyotas.

    I've been bugging him to sell me his 93 yota for a while now and he is finally giving her up.

    he doesnt know what price to put on her and he was asking me what is reasonable price. any suggestions?

    93' yota

    The GOOD
    -4wd
    -4cyl 5-speed
    -BRAND NEW jarco engine with 2,000 miles on it. http://jarcoinc.com/
    installed by the owner
    -comes with brand new tires.
    -owned by a toyota specialist.
    -maintained very well and know the owners on personal level.
    -No rust.
    -runs great

    The BAD
    -200,000+ miles on the body
    -been in an accident. front was replaced with a tube bumper and rear replaced with tube bumper. Also a new bed needed to be installed

    ^ I'm thinking less.

    Given the info you provided, I'd take the risk for $2750. Anything more than that and I'd walk away. Of course, I'm in dry South Texas where 4WD vehicles do not fetch a premium.

    Being brand new tires, I guess there is no way to inspect tire wear. Would make it a red flag in my eyes, maybe I'm wrong.

    2750 sounds reasonable, I'd offer 1950 since it's been in a collision and the high body miles.

    i told him that KBB was 3,200 but he wasnt liking that number already so... hopefully he will realize that it isnt too much of a goldmine

    the truck im looking at has gotten to an accident and has 200,000+ miles on the body. i think that takes a lot of value out of it...


    should the new engine add to it or maybe even take off value?

    the mileage and accident does take off. im not sure about motors in yotas but i know in fords once you replace them everything else starts to go. if anything i dont think it should add or subtract from the value. and my stripes are also original, so your have been removed. might have been repainted too if you cant see where they used to be. just my .02

    oh my interior was super clean too, only had wear on the drivers arm rest and shifter knob

    i dont really like the bumper that is on this truck... it reminds me of a jeep... and i dont like things to remind me of a jeep...

    well your truck is very nice and you bough it for 3500 so im thinking that the one im lookin at has got to be AT LEAST 1k lower

    As it is with the Ford emblem on it...they should pay you around $500.

    Once it is replaced with a Toyota emblem, I would start at $2,000 and go from there.
