Rare and Rugged: 1988 Toyota Camry All-Trac

If someone asks you to name an all-wheel-drive Japanese modern classic with a manual gearbox, most people start listings things from the Subaru, Mitsubishi, or Nissan…but the truth is that Toyota probably built more all-wheel-drive cars than any of those specialty makers, mainly because they built a bazillian cars over the years. Today’s example is a Camry All-Track with nasty paint and a manual gearbox. Find this 1988 Toyota Camry All-Trac offered for $2,800 in San Carlos, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

I am offering a rare 1988 camry alltrac, LE 4 WD. this car is mechanically in good condition , but body needs paint . No rust and allways passes smog. This is a great car for a collector/ restorer, and who likes 4 WD vehicles. This car will plow through snow when the differential is engaged.

Unlike almost all current 4wd cars, this one is the most unique be cause the center differential will ‘lock’ giving extra traction, The engine is clean, and runs well, starts up readily. Air conditioning, window, heater and auto seat belts work.
Great car for first time high schooler driver. or as a car to restore for a collector.

I am the original owner, and have all the service records. Motor has only about 100, 000 miles on it . The original motor was replaced, professionally, by a low milage used Japanese engine. At the time all critical parts were replaced with new, Toyota parts. clutch timeing belt, brakes, motor mounts, and new struts all around , !.

I am parting with this good friend only be cause I have no place to keep it parked, and until recently it was in storage.

lots of spare parts, good tires, and even original engine block if you want it Free, and all shop Toyota shop manuals.

There is a lot of life left in this spunky, fun to drive vehicle. check google ‘camry alltrac’ for comparable pricing and other similar vehicles.
