This is a Toyota Townace 8 seater. (Front 2, Middle 2+1, Rear 1.5 + 1.5)
1988 Tokyo Reg, imported to UK in 96 or 97.
1.8 petrol auto. Power steering, elec windows, basic radio/cassette (I'm keeping the CD player).
Rust free, legendary Toyota reliability.
Loads of space. Far more most vehicles of its size.
The rear seats fold down to make a double bed (albeit lumpy).
It needs 1 job doing on it - it has a left rear wheelbearing that is dying.
I have had a quote for 170 quid to fix this. Or you can get the parts for 80.50 from Toyota and do it yourself if you have the requisite facilities.
But it's driveable (though suggest not fast or long distances) while you figure out where to get the job done and it is taxed and MOT'd till end April. I would be very surprised if it does not pass the MOT once the wheeel bearing is done.
This was until a week ago our family car and we have relied upon it 100% for the last few years and never been let down. My kids are disgusted that I am selling it.
It has 75000 miles on it. 5 good tyres, reliable starter, great runner.
It's not a "scream up the motorway at 80" sort of car (though you could). It's a "cruise at 65-70" sort of thing. Great visibility, amazing turning circle, so it's superb to use in town (it was after all designed for Tokyo)
But all this is on the website at the link shown above. As is a picture. By the end of this weekend I should have a load more pictures of it there too.
I will take 250 quid for the vehicle, so a total of 420 (including the wheel bearing fix) gets you a solid (and somewhat quirky) 8 seater with stacks of space. Fold the rear seats out of the way & you have a 5 seater that can take a mountain bike standing up behind the seats with no wheels removed, but the same footprint as a medium estate car.
It looks a bit scruffy from the front(laquer has peeled of the bonnet metallic paint in patches and there are some corner scratches), but I really don't think you could get a better big vehicle for this money.
I'm in Cardiff.
