If you’ve always wanted to relive the 1980s with a perfect Toyota pickup — but you’re keenly aware there’s no such thing as a perfect Toyota pickup, as they’ve all been used and abused — here’s your chance: a truly perfect 1986 Toyota Pickup, offered in a sort of cream beige color with the original 1980s factory side graphics.

This truck is a true time capsule, and that’s no accident: According to the seller — Hayes Auto Sales near Sacramento, Caifornia — this pickup was treated to a full restoration, and it certainly looks like it. The exterior is flawless, and the interior is in fantastic shape, with perfect upholstery and no fading, or peeling, or missing pieces. This is what an ’86 Toyota Pickup would’ve looked like when it came out of the factory back then.
Reading the Carfax report, it’s easy to see why this truck was a good candidate for restoration: It spent its entire life in warm, sunny (and, more importantly, dry) California, meaning it’s unlikely to be rotted or rusting. Indeed, despite the pickup’s 158,000 miles, it looks like a brand-new vehicle — even down to those factory graphics, which were a must-have on 1980s trucks and vans from Japan.
The truck even offers an “Xtra Cab” (intended to be extra convenient for storage, and now looked upon as laughably cramped) and a chrome light bar over the cab with KC lights — perfect for reliving your 1980s memories. But it doesn’t come cheap: The asking price for this truck is $21,995, meaning it’s likely to go to a collector who’s betting on the pickup market taking off. It’s probably a safe bet, and this is the truck that’ll shoot up in value, as there are likely few others in this condition. Find a 1986 Toyota Pickup for sale
