It is the Wednesday, so that means it’s time for another edition of Daily
Turismo’s weekly game of find the tic-tac-scissors also
known as Mid Week Match-Up! Last week we found the best first project cars, and had a deluge of great suggestions from our readers and craigslisavants. Regardless, we get sporadic emails from readers asking for a specific car, so this week lets help Laura who lives in Nebraska. She writes to us:
I had an older 1977-78 Chinook that I LOVED. I’m looking for another
one as had to sell it some time ago and now have the time to use one.
Can you help?
Sure. DT’s readers can help too!
A quick nationwide Chinook search finds a few around, but this 1976 Toyota Chinook offered for $5000 in Stormstown, PA seems like a good start. It is in decent condition and just got a new Toyota 20R engine, what could be better than that?
If you want to take a risk on a car without photos, there is a cheap ’74 Chinook offered for $1500 in Cecil, WI that only has 34k miles on the odometer. The Toyota inline-4 should be good for another 250k!!
Help find a Chinook (or suggest an alternative camper) for Laura. Comments below.
