Car description

We are parting with our beloved 1986 Toyota Van Wagon, VIN JT4YR29V6G5028871. This was a lucky barn find for us. It had been in a storage unit for years. True to form, it started up with very little trouble. It has the 2.2l engine, MANUAL transmission with 88,538 original miles!This is a rare van, it's a cargo van (with the coveted leaf springs so it can carry more weight) but it has windows! windows. It was customized by DMR Conversions into a light camper, then customized more by us, ready for fun, with .....
A full-sized bed, roof racks, 1 Renogy 100 Watts 12 Volts Monocrystalline Solar Panel, deep cycle Optima Blue Top Battery, Power TechON PS1005 Pure Sine Wave Inverter. Foxwing OzWing WRAPAROUND AWNING! (with a LED kit and extra panel). Keep everything charged and running on the road. We even ran our Engel 12V fridge with this system. The headliner has been painted white, which was a huge pain but made it looks so much better since it was stained. There are also seat covers and our custom gold-repaired dashboard (in Japan, special items are repaired with gold, the repair becoming part of its story). Also there are dinosaurs!
This is a very straight example of a vanwagon. Little to no rust underneath (cosmetic only).
ORIGINAL GLASS. The body has had a little body work on the side skirts but overall is in great shape (this is evident in the pics). This van has spent most of its life in a garage or storage. There are little issues here and there that you will want to tinker with. It is a 30-year-old van, so that's to be expected. There's no radio, and no AC, and it needs an emergency brake cable. It has the very common issue of heat soak (if you run it a long time in very hot weather, the fuel in the engine turns to vapor, and the engine has to cool off before it will restart) which was never a problem for us.
We are not interested in parting this van out....also in no hurry to sell it. It is a great example of a Toyota Vanwagon. It is FUN TO DRIVE and will TURN HEADS! It's been a super-reliable, comfortable little camper for us.

**A note about the mileage - I've been asked
"Since there is a documented issue with the Odometer then is there any proof through service records to substantiate 88,586 miles. There are tell-tales that suggest higher mileage such as the fact that there is a prop rod holding up the hood rather than the strap that's mounted to the pillar. The strap would not have been broken with mileage this low"
My response:
I have no other proof than what it said on the listing "Corrected Title Vehicle Use and Event Check The State DMV has issued a corrected title for the vehicle.". I am the 3rd owner and have only owned this vehicle for around a year or so. All I have is the word of the previous owner who owned the vehicle for the majority of its life.
