Mustang Powered: 1982 Toyota Wagon DX

The typical 80s vintage Toyota wagon is powered by a sub 2-liter inline-4 that barely puts out enough power to get out of its own way. There isn’t anything wrong with driving a slow car (I’ve had the pleasure many times myself!) but today’s Toyota wagon or Wagon is something of a Frankenstein. Power comes from a 5.0 liter Ford V8 mated to a T-5 manual gearbox. Yeah. Find this 1982 Toyota Wagon DX offered for $5,850 in Exeter, RI via faceplace marketbook. Tip from Art C.
