Used Car of the Day: 1981 Toyota Pickup Crawler
Today's UCOTD is a tough mudder. A 13-inch "bob" and a 5:29 Detroit rear locker, along with a 5:29 front axle are just the tip of the off-road iceberg for this 1981 Toyota Pickup Crawler.
Other goodies include 14-inch shocks using Ford shock towers, 36-inch wheels, and a winch. There's a 35-inch spare, CB radio, spare transmission, spare parts, and half doors.
The price for this California-based rig is $10,000.

- 28-Cars-Later So here's the headline between the lines, dealers are worried the Federal government isn't going to pay them in a reasonable timeframe (or perhaps not at all ?) and it will create cashflow problems. This is through the looking glass stuff.
- SCE to AUX "scheme" appears 5 times in this story. We get it.I don't understand the concern. Many, many EV credits have passed to dealers/mfrs in the decade since since Cash For Clunkers, and did so for leased EVs. I've leased two EVs, and the Federal subsidy went straight to the mfr - not me. The dealer took that figure off the sale price.You'd think the dealers (especially Nissan) had never seen this before - how ridiculous.Tell you what, dealers - advise your mfrs you'd rather not take the risk, and see how that goes.
- Crtfour It's Ford...how long before the first recall?
- Oberkanone You get a workout driving an Opel GT compared to driving experience of today. No power steering, manual transmission, and just getting into and out of the car requires extreme physical flexibility. I favor the Saab Sonett III over the Opel GT. If I'm buying a tiny two seat 1972 odd car I'm going all in.
