picked up an 83 toyota. she only has 150km's on it. frames been patched in a couple of places but don't really like some of the patch jobs the wheelbase is 109/110inches so i think its a long box

well my dad had an 83 and sold it and i've spend the last couple of years trying to find one and was gonna make the one i bought look like his old one (i'll post a pic of his)

if i don't do that i'm gonna build a winch bumper and squeek some 33's under there one day. i love the look of the front end of the first gens so i don't wanna take too much away from it with a winch bumper. was also thinking of restoring it but i think i can find another first gen in better condition for that.

do you know what the wheelbase is for a first gen long box?

i also wanna put a box on it or beef up the deck thats on it right now

you ever come to the coast? i'm gonna hit up the junk yards here first and see what i can find

i think i'm gonna take it easy on this one until i get another first gen. one of which i will restore and the other will be lifted and locked[36] [36]

yup it was pretty new at the time of the pic. he bought it brand new in 83. 10grand including taxes.. 20 years later tho it had its share of rust.

the one i bought i actually seen it at the mall when i was picking up my mom from work and left my number under the windshield wiper. lucky it stayed on
