Matchbox recently suprised us by releasing a 1st generation Toyota 4Runner to it’s lineup. The new 4Runner toy is a great copy of the 1985-1988 Toyota 4Runner. The toy colors and striping are very close to those of the original and the tires are proportional to the vehicle size, unlike the Matchbox size toys with monster truck tires. However, the chrome interior leaves a little to be desired. What do you think? Would you pick one up if you saw it at the local store? Hemmings.com

Does the rear sag like the real thing?

I have 3 Toyota 4 runners for sale. Two of them are built for rock crawling and one 1988 runner is not running and needs attention.

The first of the 3 of them is a Blue 1980 with 33 inch tires, transfer cases, 4 wheel drive, you name it. Both tube and regular doors included. We have taken it to the
Colorado mtn. to switch back those passes like Black Bear.

The second one of the 3 is a red 1985, with tube doors for summer riding and regular doors for the winter. This one has is fuel injected with the 35 inch tires, transfer cases, 4 wheel drive. More info. available upon request. Tucson, AZ. 520-784-3096
