You'd have the first 4WD off-road capable station wagon, it would have beat this American station wagon by a dozen years:
No, I missed it. But look at that shinky VSV on the driver fender. And, the jackrod on the cowl.
Also from the eBay Motors Blog:
I'm running power steering pumps from those Tercels on both of my FJ40s. And now I've got a Tercel coil and igniter in my '76 FJ40 and a brand new Tercel igniter waiting for my '71 FJ40 build - that one will get a new Toyota coil with my next parts order.you all don't know what CLASSY JDM Alternative 4WD is all about
I can see it, the Tercel with a spare tire carrier on the back. Its style is really like the first generation of 4Runner. It is just hard to imagine it with 5-gallon Jerry cans, on the tire swing-out, and the original four-lug wheels. And, it is just hard to see over overgrown vegetation, truck beds, etc. when your ride rolls low to the pavement.
In 1985 I had one of those Tercels as a work car out in Colorado. It would take to the same trails, in style, that I traversed with my 40.
Well, maybe not all of them!
This whole thread is confusing me with the multiple gear changes...but I am glad I saw that Tercel SR5. Thats some styling wheels.
