    Hey guys, I need your help. I am working on a comprehensive project to create color charts for all US-imported Toyotas. Unfortunately, the information is not THAT easy to come by!

    If you have a sales brochure from 84-88 then you could scan it and upload or email it to me. Or, if you can't scan it, you could simply list the colors that were available in that particular year.

    Check the production plate on the firewall or doorjamb of your truck and record the color code. Post your vehicle production date or model year, and your color code along with a description or photo of the color. (Without the year your color code alone won't do much good!)

    Thanks guys, lets see how quickly we can get this completed!

    I don't see the 1 Ton chassis listed.

    I'd go look at my chassis code, but it's wicked snowy out there.

    I don't have the 1-ton called out as such, but I do have the cab-only 2WD listed in two lengths as the RN55 and RN75... I am curious if yours matches one of those or is a different chassis code altogether.

    Haha, you're part of the T/R army out there helping to improve the site. I appreciate that! Those last 1985 two-tone codes are out there somewhere!

    Finally my eBay searches have paid off. Here are photos of the rare 2C7 Medium Blue/White two-tone from 1984. I'm still looking for photos of the two other two tone schemes in 84 (White/Silver (2P5) and White/Dark Grey (2P7)) and the four schemes from 1985 (Silver/White (2U5), Light Blue/White (2U6), Dark Grey/White (???) and Medium Blue/White (???). If you have photos of any of those two-tone schemes, please throw them up here!

    Should be a plate on the firewall behind the engine, under the cowl.
