You could buy a decent one for a fraction of that price and and rebuild the whole drive train and made to your liking for much less. At the end of the day it’s still just a simple, cheap small pickup.

However, I find the listing to be questionable. There are sellers who find low mileage, nicer older vehicles and clean them up real good and try to pass them off as “barn finds”.

Is it the original speedometer?

That's Marty McFly's dream truck!

Go buy a brand new Tacoma and the only upgrades are a larger windshield washer reservoir, adjustable headrests and new styling.

Every seal and piece of rubber will need replaced, as well as that rust needs fixed. After all of that you might have 45 grand in an Toyota PU. Not in my world.

Hope it has the 4 banger.

If it’s got the 3.0, I wonder if the recall is still open. Obviously it hasn’t been done.

Cool truck. Silly money.

They had/have their following and for good reasons. But they will rust out from under you.

Open diff rear axl wasn’t worth shot in the mud and off camber situations. I had a couple of 80’s models for hunting trucks, but technology has surpassed them.

ALL the comments about leaks , chewed up wiring , mice - etc. - I agree 100% , nothing worse than a vehicle that hasn't been ran in a long time . MUCH WORSE when it hasn't been ran in 2-3/4 decades .

Nice truck, but certainly not a rare barn find. Frame is probable rusted out.

It depends on the barn. Some good ones are actually fairly mouse-proof. Mine is infested.

Nothing wrong with a '93 frame. I've got a '92 with 350K miles and the frame is good. Toyota had some frame problems, but it wasn't these years.

The frame rust issues that Toyota had were only on certain model years of Tacoma's. It had to with anti-rust treatment that was to be applied during manufacturing but wasn't up to spec. I believe Toyota sued Danaher over it and won but I think Toyota spend a whole lot more on recalls. They recalled my Tacoma and redid the frame years ago and it is still running strong. No signs of unusual rust on the frame.

The truck that that is for sale is a 4 cylinder. The 6 cylinders from that era did have issues with head gaskets blowing out. The 94 I had had a factory recall to replace the head gasket. I had it for 14 years and never had any head gasket problems. It was a dog of an engine by modern standards, however.

Final price $45,100.

If another one sold tomorrow, it would go higher.

Love to have a 1st gen. Neighbor bought one in 1980 brand new with BFG AllTerrains. I’d sit in my bedroom and stare at it out the window.

No kidding! Who buys a new truck, drives it home, parks it in a barn, and just leaves it?

There was a late 70's International Scout II in Ohio that had about a thousand on it . Parked just a week or so after the rural mail carrier that bought it new & saw it used too much gas on his route.

Super Scout Specialties that sells related parts had it in the their show room. I just checked if they still had it. No mention of it but they mow have a Scout museum, so it's likely.


Some forgotten about and interesting finds out there still. Not as many IMO with all the info & communication these days, but there is more to be found. Motorcycles bug me the most. A lot more easily hidden or forgotten about than a car. One with just a front wheel removed would fit under a work bench not be seen for decades.
