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.

Check out this nicely done VW Syncro turbo-diesel, with locking differentials. It was given the expedition-vehicle treatment for a German TV show and features built-in, PC-based navigation and multiple cameras for capturing the off-road action.

Here’s a link to the translated article. And here’s one to the image gallery.
