Recommended Posts

1995 Toyota Rav4 1st Gen Manual AWD 5 door Silver. 2nd owner, regular (10K servicing).
Location: Gailes QLD 4300. 
Item Condition: Used
Reason for Selling: Moving, work needed on car, don't want it wrecked. Registered to sell unregistered as is.
Price and Payment conditions: $700 negotiable (note full history below - I’m not interested in low ball offers. Just want someone who will value this as the base for doing up their own project car or keeping their beloved Rav4 Ist Gen on the road.
Any additional information:

The good:  Only 240K with full service history and 10k services. Bought as 2nd owner at~ 40K in 2013 (1st owner bought new at start of retirement in 1995 in Cleveland QLD and used it primarily to go to local shops). I replaced 5th gear 2104 at 56K and maintained it very well sinc. There is a missing receipt for 230K service but sticker on the windscreen shows next service due is 241k. I’ve added oil and water in this period. Has only had mostly local intermittent driving (e.g. shops, railway station) since new car purchased since late 2020
Wind breaks on Front L and R windows. Genuine Toyota Towbar. lockable roof racks included + Sony Bluetooth CD player with removable faceset. Immobiliser works and have remote lock key that works but might be worth replacing/ duplicating(ignition key was changed a few years ago).
All original internals with all headrests (you try to pick this up at a wrecker!). All windows in good condition and tinted. All lights working and no major cracks and chips on lights.. Seats in fair to good condition for age. Seat belts all working but one losing it’s retractability.. All electricals working to my knowledge.
Relatively new battery. 
The bad: 5th gear has gone and unsure on how much life is left in the clutch. Drives fine at present.  Dent on front right of car and back where spare tyre is and some rust in this area. Small leak possibly on rocker cover (no evidence of blown head gasket). Some paint weathering on roof top and a side panel. 
The ugly: You can help prevent the ugly.. I can’t contemplate this going to a wrecker and being compressed into a lump of metal given all the quality parts it has to offer and given the detailed repair and service history I can provide to a fortunate buyer. I have to admit this is about the best car I’ve ever bought. Love the drive feel, the versatility and responsiveness of the steering.... (I don't need to convince you)

Repair History of work I’ve done (all 10K services done over lifetime of car)
