Good Local 78 Mini FS

Good Guy in the CSC looking to get rid of one more Mini - worth checkin it out since it is the cost of a good set of axles, and you get the rest of the truck!

No association - just helping a brother out


1978 Toyyota Mini - $500.00

For Toyota, the pickups prior to the Tacomas are designated "Mini pickups" because they were the smaller lighter pickups that were produced.

i think it has a small lift. theres a 1 inch block in the rear and the front springs have no sag and is not straight across. it still had some arch. 33s would probably fit well. right now its on 31s. other than that its all stock. no rusted holes at all which is pretty awesome.

Good find...I have always like the body style of those early 80s pickups, the round headlights are cool too.
