Dolphin Camper Conversion: 1983 Toyota Pickup

This next car came in the DT tips line as a “Toyota Dolphin” which reminded me of a (long lost) acquaintance who had made a short list of next potential career moves that included dolphin trainer and rabbi…which always made me wonder what kind of food you’d serve your guests at a dolphin’s briss. Anyway, I was relieved to discover that this wasn’t a rare model of Toyota that I had missed, but a camper shell from Dolphin Camper Company sitting on a Toyota Pickup with 22R power, manual gearbox, and flushable toilet. Find this 1983 Toyota Dolphin conversion Pickup offered for $8000 in Portland, OR via craigslist. Tip from John.

This classic dolphin model is in great condition. With only 82000 miles and fully functional appliances it’s a good catch. I’m only selling it bc I’m moving out of the country and can’t take it with me. The previous owner was a mechanic and took very good care of it.
