We've been flirting with the idea of adding a 2017 4Runner to the Moto Roster fleet as a daily driver / grocery store giant. While this 1987 example doesn't have 10% of the modern conveniences (or safety features) of the 30-year-newer version, it has the 2017 beat hands down in terms of style + panache.
Though not short, the description of this 4Runner is lacking in any real details. It urges buyers to check out the ample photos and gives a high level overview that everything seems to be in great condition.
The photos bear that out, and it's hard to believe that this truck has survived 30 years with little wear to show other than some missing clearcoat, a few cracks in the dash, and evidence of a few decent bumps in the back.
Inside, the light colored interior has held up extremely well and shows a well optioned truck with power everything, cruise control, AC, and the altimeter / vehicle angle cluster.
The 22RE motor is said to have no smoke and a strong clutch. Shots of the engine show an extremely clean compartment that retains all of its original emission and vacuum stickers.
New tires look good on 2nd-gen aluminum 4Runner wheels and the truck seems to ride at stock height. Underneath, things look extremely clean -- so clean in fact that we wonder if the frame hasn't received some attention in the not too distant past. We don't see any evidence of rust anywhere else so maybe this thing has just been meticulously maintained.
We like all 4Runners, but we love this one. It's well optioned, in great shape, and a perfect color. With the ability for semi-open air motoring, we think this would be the ideal beach truck. Maybe Moto Roster HQ should think about moving someplace a little closer to the coast....
