Up for auction is this perfect time capsule of a vehicle. This Toyota 4x4 was purchased new here in Albuquerque New Mexico in 1988 at American Toyota. (which is still in business) and it has never left the city. The car is 100% original down to the tool kit and owners manual.
THE STORYI purchased two cars from the estate (wife) of the original owner. The original owner was an engineer at Sandia National Laborites here in Albuquerque (stickers still on front windshield). He slipped and fell causing a brain injury and lived for seven years being unable to move. He passed almost 10 years ago. His wife held onto all his property until recently. of which I bought this amazing original truck. It was parked outside (under car port) untouched for 17 years.
THE TRUCK. The truck currently has 54500 miles on the odometer and it will continue to climb as I drive it regularly. Because it was sitting for 17 years it was brought in for service to have the tank dropped. cleaned and reinstalled. All fuel lines were replaced. The complete break system was also drained and all break components were replaced for safety. Cooling system was drained/filled and new hoses installed. The A/C was charged and blows Ice Cold! I have Over $3500 in receipts to get road worthy again. The truck runs. drives. shifts and stops as new. Their are no leaks anywhere. The interior is in amazing condition. other than a small crack on dash and the vinyl shrinkage on the passenger A pillar the interior is flawless. The bed of the truck had a bedlinen in it from factory. I removed it to show the perfect condition of the bed. There is absolutely NO rust anywhere. we live in the desert. The paint is 100% original and is running thin in some spots from the New Mexico sun. The Toyota logos are very sun faded but present. NO accidents. NO bond. No repaints. No Issues. It still retain is original Toyota tool roll with all tools that has never been used (see pictures) and owners manual. You can fly here and drive this truck home to anywhere you might live.
