History
Bought used by my younger brother when his '81 Tercel SR5 was Tboned. It was only 2 years old <50km, but the 1st owner had managed to wear out the clutch. I changed it for him and remarked that "it was a nice truck and if he ever decided to sell it please give me the 1st chance at it"....so in 2008...he thought the clutch was gone in it again and gave it to me...I bleed the clutch slave and drove it home! It is now completely rebuilt mechanically. The front fenders were replaced. One cab corner, the door bottoms and the bed sides need replacement...waiting for summer!

Modifications

Drivetrain
Stock 4 banger...Has been "refreshed". ie when I saw the head gasket was leaking I pulled the head, dropped the pan, pulled the pistons, measured the bores....still perfect (300km+), measured the bearing clearances...perfect, so I honed it, new rings and timing chain set, put her back together! Added a low restriction exhaust (dumps out the side in front of the rear tire). May do the air intake & header thing....we'll see.
Interior
Very worn stock split bench...Have a pair of Lincoln LSC
(2 door) black leather buckets and a pair from a Lexus 400 (4 door)...haven't decided if I want to keep a rear seat or give it up for the stereo...hmmm!
Exterior
Planning on modifying Ford Ranger step sides to mate with the bed...Want to retain the Toyota tail lights...Fuel filler is on the wrong side...wheel arch is to far back (cut and paste!)
Thankfully they are fiberglass!
15" Mercury Grand Marquis Alloys.
Audio
Stock AM/Fm cassette with Lexus add on CD, rear side speakers of some kind..? Time will tell...
Suspension
stock...Got air shocks!
Wheel and Tire
Mercury Grand Marquis alloys.....Free, what can I say? Anybody know how to put a Toyota logo onto the center caps?
