I heard that the '85 shop manual is back in print, but the local deal says its not. Is it? If so, what is the going rate and is there a place to buy it on-line?

And yes I tried a search first!

Ask eBay, and you shall receive:

I think that officially the '85 manuals are out of print, but I believe if you call the manual sales number (don't have it handy), they still have them available. You dealer can give you a catalog with the phone number on it. There are also lots of places now on the 'net that sell them second-hand.

The phone number for Toyota Service Publications is 1-800-622-2033. My catalog stops at '89, but it says in bold print on the bottom "Older Manuals are available - Please Inquire".

Thanks guys. I bought the one on ebay. Paid I think $55, but no shipping as they live here in Austin, too.

But, just for info, I too heard that the old ones are being printed again. Can't remember where I heard that, and can't give any verification.

'86 is definetly back in print, don't know about '85 though. Mine should be in tomorrow. They've gone back to two books again, chassis and body.

I just missed out on an original one in great shape in OceanShores at some antique book store, I bet I could've walked in the store and bought it for less than $10 since I'm down there all the time. <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0"> It's now on <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1175959059">Ebay</a>... <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">
