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.
