 From eBay:

Two owner, amazing original condition truck with very low miles. It’s
getting increasingly difficult to locate an original paint low mileage
first generation Toyota 4×4 in this kind of condition. Paint has only
had some very minor touch ups. A paint can came off of a truck and
glanced off of the cowl/fender on passenger side and it was
professionally repaired, and looks great. That happened many years ago,
and minimal work was done, it was scratches only, no body work was done,
only paint touch up. The remainder of the paint 90% of it is all
original. This is a factory two tone paint truck in tan over mason red.
If you’re not familiar with how these paint jobs were done, they paint
the entire truck mason red first, and then paint the tan over the top of
it essentially painting the truck twice. This is a one year only paint
scheme, and it’s in amazing original condition with only minor dents,
dings, and scratches. The truck shows extremely well, and people really
just stare at it in wonderment. This has always been a dry Southern
California truck, it has absolutely NO rust on it, and it still retains
the original blue California license plates. The trucks has been garaged
always since new, and when it’s elderly owner died about 4 years ago,
it was kept garaged, and driven extremely rarely. His wife finally
decided to let it go after many adventures, it was a tough sell for her.
Also as a side note, the truck was towed behind an RV  many times, and
it’s estimated that it’s only been driven 65,000 to 70,000 miles.
Because the odometer continues to log miles while it was being towed the
odometer shows the 87k plus miles, still very low. The tow bar is
included with the sale, it’s just not pictured, it mounts to what the
winch is mounted on with two bolts. It will come in the bed of the
truck.


     Mechanically the truck is perfect, no
issues to speak of, no leaks. Truck starts, runs, stops, and drives
exactly as it should. All accessories work great. It has working factory
air conditioning, tilt steering wheel, sliding rear glass, power
steering, bucket seats, center console, SR5 package with full
instrumentation, rear tube bumper with reciever hitch, am/fm radio, and
chrome package (grill/wheels). The truck is optioned very nicely as you
can tell. A bed liner, Snug Top camper shell (I have the key for back
glass), and 6000 pound Warn winch has been on the truck since truck was
new (works well). New 235/75R15 all terrain type radials were just
installed on the truck, battery is about two years old. Under the hood
is very clean, and tidey. The truck needs nothing, and comes with all
service records I have every record since new, including a log book
telling exactly when anything and everything was done to the truck. The
records are very meticulous.


     Interior
design in the truck is amazing, and 100% original. It’s not perfect, but
fairly close. There are no cracks in the dash, drivers seat has one
puncture in it that is small on inside panel passenger side lower
cushion, I didn’t feel it warranted removal, and replacement or repair.
Carpet is in excellent shape with only minor spotting(may clean out), no
tears in carpet, headliner is perfect, glass is 100% original toyota
glass with no cracks. Doors open and close as new, glass goes up and
down nicely. Window rubbers and seals are excellent. It’s truly a time
capsule of a truck, not restored like most are that look like this. Buy
and drive this truck anywhere, it won’t let you down. It has the
legendary 22R engine, and 5 speed transmission, 4wd goes in and out
smoothly, and so do the manual locking hubs.
