Chassis No. JT4RN67P0G5025895. Beige with brown graphics over brown vinyl, beige cloth. Automatic, chromed Cragar wheels, All Terrain T/A tires, roof lights, bench seat, air conditioning, JVC CD stereo, spray-in bedliner.

Evaluation: Fully restored frame. The engine bay was completely redone without overdoing it. Fresh paint with no flaws to speak of. The interior looks showroom fresh apart from the aftermarket radio. Nobody who owned one of these in the ‘80s ever thought they would get full, serious restorations, but they’re worth money these days and here we are.

Bottom Line: It’s crazy enough to think that old Toyota pickups would be getting such serious refurbishments and restorations. It’s even crazier to think that someone would actually turn down over 30 grand for one. That said, this Pickup brought $35,200 at Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas in 2017 and $27,500 at Auburn Fall in 2020, so the market is there, but the seller can’t realistically expect much more than this reported high bid and should have taken it.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
