$6000 OBO...and I mean any reasonable best offer so fire away.

For sale is a 1990 RRC in Portofino Red with 200,XXX miles on the body with a recently swapped 4.2L motor with 100,XXX miles on it and the transmission. I bought this in 2013 for my dad who enjoyed it but never really got into it. It has been at my house for the last 4-5 years

Motor top end was rebuilt at 90,XXX miles by Will Tillery (tried to find the original for sale post from here regarding the engine but couldn't). Truck has been a California car it's whole life and never taken off road. ZERO RUST!!!

I will do my best to list the known issues. Truck has not been on the road in a few years but I was able to move it under its own power around the yard after the 4.2 was put in a couple of months ago. I would love to keep working on it but just don't have the time or knowledge or time to gain the knowledge.

Let me know if you have any questions or want pictures of certain areas.

The Good
*ZERO RUST
*Headliner in good shape, no sagging
*Rear seats in good condition
*Carpets in decent shape for age
*No dents, straight body (hood isn't perfect)
*ARB winch bumper included
*Roof rack included
*Two full sets of wheels included
*Last time I drove it all the seat, window and sunroof switches worked.
*Full size spare
*Has all the rear cargo pieces including parcel shelf
*Front and rear diff covers.

The OK
*Needs new plugs, wires, etc and to be timed
*I would replace the radiator (New viscous fan and clutch included)
*Exhaust downpipes need to be connected (New studs and gaskets are included)
*Sunroof drains need to be cleared
*Crack in windshield, doesn't affect view

The Bad
*AC doesn't work, not sure why. Might need to be recharged or new compressor or ??
*Heater core is bypassed
*ABS system needs to be investigated, light is on. I have a new accumulator for it.
*Interior trim needs work, particularly the center console
*Tears in the front seats (not horrible)
*Missing fuel cap door
*Needs tires
*Transmission hard to shift (might need cable adjusted but worked in all gears)

The day we brought it home.




As it is now. Good wash and wax is all it needs.

Walk around video. I think I have the tools, I’ll look and confirm.

Looks like a great starting point for someone. I may circle back, but I don’t expect it to last long on the market. Glwts

Somebody please buy this soon. I’m begging you! I keep staring at its potential, but I already have too many projects and it’s just too damn close ;-)
