Description for Toyota Pickup Truck 1989


This is my 1989 Toyota Pickup Truck RN85L single cab long bed 4X2 for sale. This is a turn key vehicle, you buy it and drive it to any destination you want. I am a very meticulous owner, I know this truck inside and out. I loved this Truck very much, tons of maintenance and good care has been given to this pickup as it was never meant to be sold in the first place so it was given the very best. Back in 1989 this model was actually named “Truck of the year” by Motor Trend magazine.

It has only 75,000 miles (120,xxx kilometers) and has an amazing legendary 22R 2.4L carbureted engine with a 5 speed manual transmission and a 3.42 rear end. This vehicle has been a one Owner truck for more then 20 years and has been previously maintained with Genuine Toyota parts. The truck was owned by an older Gentleman that took good care of it. It’s always been inside a heated and ventilated Garage, never driven in snow or bad weather. I got it back in 2012 and went on a full extensive restoration. This Truck is reliable, starts every time, drives and cruises along great!

This 1989 Toyota pickup truck is a dependable work horse Made in Japan. I have all owners manuals/pamphlets, the original black key and silver valet key with copies also, original Updated Toyota shop repair manuals, magazines related to the truck and even the sales brochures from 1989 at the dealership where it was bought. This pickup has amazing looks, the Palladium Silver Metallic exterior matched with the gray interior is great! I won 2 first places at shows in the 1980’s-1990’s Truck category and 1 place “best in show” Truck category (2015-2016) Just gorgeous! Check it out!

This is not your Ordinary Toyota typically sold on eBay. The pickup is even better in person but check out the pictures I took 2 days ago. I have taken pictures of the outside body, the interior, the engine bay AND also underneath the truck for you to see how clean is this truck! eBay limited me to 24 pictures so I have tons of pictures of the truck if you require more.

If you are looking for a Toyota Truck this is the one to get! I have taken care of this Truck like a jewel, I am a high quality overkill kind of person and when I replace something I replace everything and make it right with Genuine Toyota parts or better. Everything works. The dashboard is perfect and shines like new, the gauge cluster is clean and great to look at. The interior is in very good shape and feels like new. The seats are nice and soft and headliner is sharp. The exterior looks good and is solid. The paint is in excellent condition, the color code is off a 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and is Palladium Silver Metallic so the paint job was done with the highest quality paint and most expensive clear coat available.

The engine and transmission has been refreshed using Toyota parts, every parts has been cleaned, painted and rebuilt better then new before installation. The engine doesn’t burn oil nor does anything leak anywhere for that matter. A custom short shifter was made and installed making shifter better then stock.

Every single bolt was replaced with the highest quality zinc plated flange bolts everywhere possible see pictures… Nothing was spared, only top quality.

I replaced BOTH the front windshield and the rear back glass with the weather-seals from Toyota.

A very thorough flush of all fluids has been done and proper fluids filled up. Everything is lubed to Toyota specs and more.

The sound is perfect for this Truck, nor too loud, nor too quiet just great rumble without too much drone. It has an original catalytic converter. The engine pulls strong and sounds great, starts right up and has plenty of power for a 22R, the transmission shifts perfectly every time. With the new brakes this truck stops on a dime and it has powerful brakes.

Once you check this Toyota out and open up the engine bay. You will be instantly sold!!!

I have a video of driving the truck if you need to view and listen to it running.

I have over $13,000 at my cost of parts receipts in hand that I spent over the last years (that amount is NOT even including countless hours of labor) for you to see. I installed a lot of brand new Genuine Toyota parts on this truck.
