    PARTING OUT: 1987 4x4 TV (Automatic LE)

    Ohh it's true, it's damn true! I have secured another 4x4 van that was destined for the crusher. I drove down to Bisbee, AZ, for this beauty and, unfortunately for her, she got the worst of both worlds; Northeastern rust and Southern Arizona sun damage. The guy I bought it from had practically no knowledge on how he came to possess this van or what is wrong with it but insisted that the engine and drivetrain were good. Best I can tell, it was originally from Massachusetts, and eventually made its way out to the Southwest, where a decade-plus in the Arizona sun and some broken windows led to her being in the sad state she is in today. People before me had picked a few parts off it (alternator, air cleaner hose, battery) so I wasn't able to try to turn it over but the oil looked good so, unless someone locked the engine up, it *should* be salvageable. And with the odometer reading just short of 165,000 miles, she's barely broken in! Aside from the interior, which is horrid (I didn't even bother photographing it, that's how bad it is), the van is about 85% complete in all its 4x4 glory. Ok, I've talked enough, lets see what she looks like!

    Now for anyone who remembers or anyone newer who has concerns about credibility/legitimacy, I have done this before, and dozens of parts made it out to other members here to help keep their vans on the road. I am truly indebted to this site and Tim for allowing such a community and database of information to exist, and as such a percentage of each sale will go towards site maintenance and server costs. I'm hoping everyone can tell that the vans I've been parting out are firmly in the "parts car" stage and don't think I'm cannibalizing restorable vans to make a quick buck. Preservation of these vans is the name of the game at this point, and this was worth much more in parts than it was in scrap.

    BASIC INFO:
    - 1987 4x4 Toyota Van LE (automatic)
    - 164,xxx miles
    - Model code: YR31LG-PQEA

    RULES:
    - Paypal or Venmo only
    - PM or reply in thread with what part(s) you need and I'll respond as quickly as I can
    - The body is shot so unless there is some plastic or some small trim pieces you need I wouldn't even bother asking to ship it.
    - I do work full-time so it may take a week or so to pull the part you need.
    - If the piece is too big/heavy/awkward to ship conventionally you must be willing to help me make appropriate arrangements.
    - GLASS: I don't know how to ship it, but both sliders and door glass is good. I don't need it, so hopefully someone is willing to take it off my hands for next to nothing + a lot in shipping.

    Unlike last time, I am at my permanent address, so I will have ample time to thoroughly part this thing out. Also, all parts are fair-game, including igniter, 4x4 auto radiator, sliding door handle, all the desirable stuff. I only needed a few parts off of this, which I'll note in the "sold/unavailable" post below.

    Thanks for looking,

    - Perry

    Re: PARTING OUT: 1987 4x4 TV (Automatic LE)

    Hey Perry

    small items I would love to have are the latch and spring parts that are on the inside of the gas tank door flap . I have the release arm and cable etc but my body man lost the parts around the gas cap when he was painting it. It's the pressure spring attached to the vast and little black plastic bit that attaches to the cover/door.
    thanks

    Re: Parting out 4x4 TV

    I've gotten quite a few PMs in addition to the replies here, keep the requests coming! Work is hectic this week but I'm going to be wrenching on the van all day Saturday, I'm hoping to have pulled all requested parts and responded back to each member with pictures that evening.

    Re: Parting out 4x4 TV

    Hi AD2101, thanks for offering these up on here!

    I need the LH plastic lens cover shown here, but looks like cpginkpt may have already claimed it. I'll take the RH one if so and will make it work on the left.

    Also need the door pocket liner on the RH door shown here:

    These red reflector light covers. Both sides are cracked but driver's side is the worst (could use both sides though if not cracked):

    Need this RH orange side light cover:

    RH (passenger side) head lamp shown here:

    Front LH wiper nut cover if it's still there:

    OTHER PARTS NOT PICTURED:
    I also need the RH tail light as mine is off of an older van with the 4 colors instead of 3. Also need RH arm rest off the passenger seat, or at least the foam. Mine has been totally destroyed. Also could use the ignition coil if it's still good. And if you still have the right rear quarter panel glass and can figure out shipping, I may be interested in that too if shipping isn't too crazy, since mine is pretty cracked.

    Thanks again!

    Ah cool, yeah I saw you needed the plastic door pocket/finger grip liner but on the driver's door, whereas I need the passenger side. Hopefully both are still good. I also only need the lens cover on the backup light on the hatch (light assembly is still good), so I think I can use the other side there.

    Thanks for offering the arm rest; I'll check the pics once you send them. -Eric

    Re: Parting out 4x4 TV

    PMs have been sent to everyone that has reached out to me, either through PM or in this thread, so check your inboxes!

    A quick update;

    This van is busted, I way over-estimated how "there" the van is. Nearly every piece of plastic was dry rotted or flat out broken, and this thing is as much rust as it is metal at this point. Even with this, I'm still just getting started. Anyways, time for more photos! This is how the van looks as of today:

    As you can see, I tossed, picked, and pulled a literal ton of parts, here are some of the more noteworthy parts I've snagged so far if anyone is interested:

    4x4 fan shroud (complete) willing to sell complete or just the bottom since that's usually the piece missing

    Misc. front end lights and trim

    Shoot me a PM if you're interested in ANY parts, not just what is shown.

    Re: Parting out 4x4 TV

    I'd love to buy one or both of the rear center caps, if they are the same as the one in this photo - plastic, made to look like the front hubs (my van has manual front hubs, not sure if the back ones are the same on a 4wd with auto hubs). I couldn't quite see in any of the photos if they were present or not.

    Thanks!

    No, they're the finicky autolocking hubs.

    In other news, the first paid for orders are boxed up and ready to ship, members who have already paid will get tracking information on Monday. I've had some more part requests so I'm hoping to get in contact with all of those people by this time Sunday but otherwise, keep the requests coming!

    EDIT: Mods, do the posts automatically lock after a certain amount of time and you're unable to edit them? I can't edit my second post in this thread, which is to note which parts have been sold/junked in order to try to cut down on multiple requests and save time. Otherwise, I'll have to make a new post every time something sells, which ads to the clutter.

    Yeah, unfortunately we had to do that. A few people (in the past) decided to remove technical content.

    I can't extend the edit time for the non-technical forums one setting fits all. So you'll need to make a new post each time you have a new list of sold parts, unfortunately.

    SOLD!:
    - All gas door parts
    - Fan shroud
    - Speedo cable and housing
    - Windshield trim
    - Hood latches
    - Rear cigarette lighter
    - Left rear back up light assembly
    - All interior lens covers
    - Passenger side exterior LE Trim

    I'm replying to all PMs tonight and making room in my inbox so if we have business pending and I haven't gotten back to you, please message me! It's not intentional, there's been a lot of interest in parts so it's possible I may have missed a message.

    Both are still available! I'll send a PM tomorrow with pictures. Freight shipping for the entire door would be a pretty penny, but if you can get past that then I think we can arrange something.

    EDIT: Batook! Delete some PMs!!

    Is the battery hold down still available? Also curious if the small, square plastic "+" box (in the engine compartment next to the air filter) is available, too.
