    I have the opportunity to buy the above vehicle. I currently own a 1987 4runner. Would it be worth buying? What parts are interchangeable. Engine has 115K. Body damage (hood, grill, radiator, etc...) No rust.

    Any responses appreciated.

    It's complicated....
    The engine if it's FI'd, the flywheels are different... some wiring and the interior. The tranny if it's a manual and yours is a manual might be interchangable, you'd have to swap the t-case on....

    Axle (rear) will be different, I don't know about the diffs.

    Unless your engine is getting tired, I wouldn't bother with it. The engine and some of the interior is about all that will swap, especially since you said the nose is damaged.

    It's probably a bench seat (worthless, very uncomfortable even new). The wheels are 5-bolt so they won't fit. BTW, the oil pan on the engine is different in the 2WD's.

    If the bed is close to rust-free you could get your money back by selling it. But then you gotta deal with the carcass. A lot of junkyards won't take a vehicle if all the decent parts are already gone.
