I spotted this 1986 Toyota 4Runner on Bring a Trailer today. While it’s not quite “time traveler” perfect —the seats show some stains — it does look to be in very nice shape with new tires, shocks, and more, according to the expired ebay auction.

This truck is one of the rare 22R-TE, factory turbo models and has an automatic transmission. It’s said to have about 144,000 miles.

I’m not sure if this truck is still available. The current Craigslist ad has been flagged for removable. There is a thread about the truck on T4R.org and the Bring a Trailer page lists the seller’s phone number in the comments, if you’re interested.

The vehicle is located just down the road in Guerneville, CA (West Sonoma County) and was last offered at $12k obo. It failed to meet reserve on ebay with a high bid of $7,379.

Have you ever dreamed of stepping into a time machine and heading back to the 80s for a vintage Japanese truck? Well, it looks like someone has already figured this out, brought back a 1st generation Toyota 4Runner SR5 from 1985, and put it on ebay.

It’s a sub-100k-mile example with a 5-speed manual transmission, a 22RE, EFI (fuel injected) engine, and a solid front axle. The interior features SR5 seat graphics, a fun-looking set of altimeter and tilt gauges, and a factory pop-up sunroof and roll-cage. Of course, the truck also features a removable fiberglass top, a feature exclusive to the first generation model.

Let’s here it for time machine operators! I’ve never seen one this clean, this original, and this well-documented. If you don’t have a time machine of your own, you’ve got until tomorrow (Wednesday, 8pm PST) to place your bid. The high-water mark currently stands at $15,500.

Update: Sold for $17,400.
