1987 Toyota Sunrader 4×4 :: Classifieds

We’ve had a few unique rigs posted to our forum recently including this 1996 Mitsubishi Canter Deluxe, a 1993 Toyota Land Cruiser HZJ75 Dual Cab, and a 1993 Mercedes Puch 230 GE camper. Today’s 1987 Toyota Sunrader is another rarity with “approximately just 26 factory 4×4 [Sunraders], and roughly 8 that came with the turbo engine [including today’s offering].” This example has to be one of if not the cleanest examples out there and has undergone a huge mechanical overhaul (I recommend checking out the original listing for full details). Further still, the camper has benefitted from extensive upgrades and would make a comfortable full-time home. This vehicle has something of a cult following with a number of drool worthy builds online from the likes of Bound for Nowhere, Jacob Carey, and Tiny Home Tours. Today’s 1987 Toyota Sunrader has covered 112,000-miles and is priced at $85,000.

This is a reliable Toyota Pickup that you can feel confident will run forever and be easily maintained or repaired by anyone, if ever needed. This is possibly the nicest, most complete, truest to form, and most updated Sunrader I have ever seen in person or online. You should be prepared to receive lots of comments, thumbs up, parking lot chats, and fist pumps whenever you’re out and about; seriously. This rig gets people absolutely thrilled to see out adventuring.”
