    Got the bed mounted for the first time in a couple years. New fuel tank installed and a 4'' hole drilled out in the bed to allow the filler neck to come up through. :shrug:

    Anyone know if there is a way to move this thread to the proper category?? I accidentally started it in the Pre-1975 category back when I started it.

    1989 Toyota Pickup FOR SALE.
    This truck is going up for sale in Buffalo, NY. Runs and drives but is not registered. Any interest please email me at volksyota@gmail.com
    I will be cross posting a proper for sale listing in the near future but thought i'd mention it in this thread first where anyone can look through its history.

    Anybody here wanna throw out a price guess / valuation?

    I think all the relevant info is here. ^^ and here is some more

    known issues:
    Front sway bar removed - mount bolts stripped
    tail lights need wires reconnected - wires just pulled out when taking bed off - duh
    Never been able to get door poppers to work - included with fobs
    stock motor - low miles
    starts after sitting a while with a shot of starting fluid and then purrs like a kitten
    temp gauge did not respond on last time running
    Heat / blower temp control doesn't work

    other stats:
    62k ish original miles
    drop spindles
    Drop LCAs
    BJ filp
    Drop Leafs
    Drop Blocks
    new tortion bolts
    Shaved - door handle, antenna, gas door, taillights
    roll pan
    Gas filler comes up through 4'' hole in bed floor
    new gas tank
    new fuel pump
    new ish battery
    new gas shocks
    engine bay sprayed gloss black
    rear frame cleaned up and sprayed with undercoating paint
    other paint work pictured above

    The work put in, time and money spent vs time enjoyed is a really unfortunate thing. I don't take joy in letting this truck go after all that we've been through. These days I don't take much joy in turning wrenches or driving unreliable/impractical vehicles. Hopefully the sale of this will close a chapter for me and allow continued progress in life. Any advice would be appreciated.

    New pictures and more concise info will be included when I make an official for sale post. I just wanted to come here before I list it in hell aka facebook
