Auction Watch: 1984 Toyota Camry

What do you make of this 1984 Toyota Camry here on eBay bidding for $3,200 with a few hours to go, located in Sioux Falls, SD.


  1. Amazingly clean, but hard to believe there'd be much nostalgia for it as is. Might be an amusing candidate for a 3S-GTE swap.

  2. So far removed from today's Camry. Toyota should buy this for their US museum (just down the street from me, and sorta-not-really open to the public, with an amazing amount of cool stuff).

    For less than $4k it's probably worth the novelty and curiosity value.

    1. Be sure to get in a visit to that museum before it moves to Plano!

    2. Scratch my earlier statement - it would be fun to bid on this Camry, win it, fly to South Dakota, road trip it back to Torrance, and sell the car to Toyota.

      "All for a free or four hundred quid profit"

  3. The smartly creased shape of this car is much more appealing than its period gm and dodge counterparts when you know there is an actual quality car underneath.

  4. Those pictures from 1984 sure look good.

    It is not that green in SiouxFalls right now.

  5. Japanese K car done better....
