Project Cars: 1985 Toyota 4Runner SR5

Salvatore Aloisio • Meet Ralph the Runner.

So, after telling myself I'll make a sensible decision, sell my 35-year-old Toyota HiLux and buy a new-ish 4WD, I went and bought a 35-year-old Toyota 4Runner. Yep, I'm an idiot.

But, this thing is way cooler than anything else I could have bought, and with only one owner, and 187,000km on the clock, I just couldn't pass it up.

Unlike previous my 15-owner HiLux, this thing is in as original condition as you can get, and I'll try my best to keep it that way.

I can't wait to start making some memories in this bad boy. To say I'm stoked is an understatement. And for all the purists out there, no I'm not going put a six-inch lift in it, light bars everywhere and throw a Commodore V6 under the bonnet. Any modifications made to it will be period correct, you won't see anything outside of the 1980s on this beast. I'm even sacrificing the glory of Spotify to keep the cassette/radio in the dash.
