Hey, I found a killer 85 'Runner today on a lot. Its totally stock, has a 22RE, 220k miles, CLEAN body that was just painted red (didn't have time to check for body filler), and a good interior. The lot owner has no idea that it may be worth its weight in gold (almost)!! I didn't get a price, but will be back tomorrow to see what they want. Anyhow, what would you guys say its worth and how much would you pay? I want to buy it and put it in storage till I get a wife, then it can be hers!! Or mabey I will go insane on my current P/U with stuff like 38's, exo-cage etc and then make the 'Runner the Daily Driver. Well, what do you think?
Anybody want it? I'll charge a $500 locating fee!! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

It's worth what they can get for it. I just bought an 86, 201k on it, rebuilt motor w/ cam, new tranny, new paint(some filler), rancho shocks, add-a-leaf, A/C works good, now has new 31's and a new cat.... it needed those tires, that cat, and a u-joint, for $1400.00. Whats mine worth now?

Now being a rookie at this...
I have a 1984 4Runner for sale and am asking $5,800 w/snowplow or $4,200 w/o. It has a new motor in it with under 1,800 miles. Never used off road, no rust, many new parts replaced, never wrecked or dented-up, etc. Paint faded off and is currently in black primer. You get what you can for them as you can never get what you put in them. I can email apic if you want. <IMG SRC="smilies/glasses.gif" border="0">

It all depends on your local market.
If there are several in your area to chose from obviously you can be more selective.

If there aint one around for miles and miles then that ONE that someone decides to sell will probably be higher priced.
What is your market like, and what are you willing to pay for it is what it boils down to.

Yeah, the market really does make a huge diffrence. The market here for Toyotas can be pretty weak, but if you advertise in the right place, it would sell FAST. I don't really have the $$$ or even a place to put it right now, since I have my Toy p/u, a Wrangler, a project CJ and a dirtbike(Don't sweat the Jeeps, they are 'For Sale'). But I still would like to have it as a DD/Party Wagon.

I got my '85 SR5 4Runner for $2200. The interior is in great shape and has a sun roof, rear heater, etc. For this area, I thought that was a pretty good price for a live axle rig in this condition. Attached is a pic of it. I had the bumpers/sliders done by a local fabricator (www.wayoffroad.com) HTH.

In Phoenix Toyota 4x4s are high priced compared to other parts of the country and kbb.com, but we also have a climate that is easy on sheetmetal (no rust). Usually you see 4Runners in the $3500/$5000 range (some higher) for 1st-gen. And trucks are the same deal. I sold an 84 with major rust (came from Connecticut) with a camper shell, it was a SR5 with a PERFECT interior... sold for $3000!!

My 4Runner is an 85... New engine, 31" BFG MTs, Black spoke wheels, 3" Downey lift, All-Pro rock sliders, All-Pro rear bumper, Centerforce II, Optima red-top, RS9000 shocks, Prerunner light bar, Hella lights, it's a SR5 with sport seats, sunroof, A/C, inclinometer, etc. Oh yeah new partial paint job. Grey, hard top and bikini top. It's not for sale but if it was it would be $7500 firm...
