Gas milage: 10 mpg city, 16 mpg highway.
It is rated as a car, not as a truck (as the 4 Runner was that year). This means that it was built with the side impact protection, etc., required of passenger vehicles but not required of trucks
The oil and oil filter were changed every 3,000 miles (have documentation).
I have saved all of the repair invoices and smog certificates and include them in the sale (these verify the odometer reading).
Passed CA smog in 2011 \"very clean.\"
I can email the pics in higher resolution if desired.
This vehicle is the last in the series with round front headlights.
There are a few minor dents due to damage from off road use, and both rear fenders have been repaired behind the wheel wells. The front left fender was repainted when it was dented while parked in a parking lot. There is no rust.
It has full instrumentation and the dash is in mint condition (we use a window shade even in the winter). It did not come equipped with a clock. It has the original radio and speakers. I have the original chrome alloy wheel rims and will include them in the sale if desired.
It is in good condition and hasn\'t been involved in any accidents.
However, in 1996 @ 71,709 miles the radiator clogged and the engine overheated. I had the radiator replaced and the engine rebuilt at that time. The pistons, rings, rod bearings and main bearings replaced. The valves were ground and the oil pan gasket, oil & oil filter, carburetor insulator, clutch fan, rotor, distributor cap, spark plugs and spark plug wires replaced. All parts replaced were new factory Toyota parts. So the internal parts of the engine have about 46,000 miles on them.

NOTHING\'S PERFECT (as they say):
-There is a tear in the drivers seat (see pic).
-The rear window defroster doesn\'t work well anymore.
-The retraction spring in the ignition that pulls the key back from the starter position is broken, so it must be retracted manually.
-I initially put this vehicle up for sale in February 2012 and at about that time it began to become difficult to shift into second gear (the 4 speed transmission. I have to double clutch to get it into second gear now). I pulled my ad and have since investigated replacing the transmission (replacement cost is about $1,000 for the transmission plus the cost of switching it in). I decided to try to sell it \"as is\" and reduced my asking price. My reasoning is that if I was buying it I\'d want to know what kind of transmission was going into it and would replace the clutch at the same time, since everything was going to be taken apart anyway, although I don\'t think the clutch needs replacing. The clutch was was replace at about 60,000).
