Today’s Autotrader Find is truly bizarre. It’s a 1987 Toyota Pickup that’s apparently had its frame lengthened to incorporate what appears to be a full-size second-row seating area.
The compact Toyota Pickup was sold from the late 1960s until 1994, after which it was replaced by the built-for-the-USA Tacoma midsize truck. The fourth-generation Toyota Pickup, offered from the 1984 through 1988 model years, came as either a regular or extended cab model. Most came with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder gas engine that in some cases was fuel injected (the legendary 22-RE), though diesels were offered in early years as well. Both manual and automatic transmissions were available, as was four-wheel drive. From the factory, buyers could opt for three different configurations. There was a regular cab, short bed model; a regular cab long bed; and an extended cab (marketed as ‘Xtracab’) long bed model as well.
As for this one, well, it’s hard to really make sense of it. It’s clearly been given an elongated frame with an added cab area, though its bed looks to simply be a factory long bed. Keep in mind that crew cab trucks were hardly a thing until the mid-1990s, and Toyota’s pickup was only offered with either a regular or extended cab at this time. The best bet is probably that this truck is the work of someone who needed a truck and wanted a Toyota, but required extra space for hauling a family along.
Either way, this 1987 Toyota Pickup looks to be in great shape and comes with just 94,995 miles on the odometer. It’s red with gray trim on the outside and has a beige and black interior. It’s two-wheel drive – you probably wouldn’t want to do much off-roading with a vehicle of this length anyway – and comes with a manual transmission.
