Please Be Real: 1995 Toyota T-100 DX ExtraCab

This next car comes from tipper Jeff who writes: Please be real...I'll send a personal check to <insert third-world country here> for this one.  Amen brother, this thing is a real testament to the power of desire on craigslist but the asking price sets off alarm bells that'll raise the little hairs on the back of your neck. Find this 1995 Toyota T-100 offered for $3000 near Washington, D.C. via craigslist.

  1. The T100 had the rusty frames that killed nearly every one of them that were ever built. How many do YOU see these days? There was a recall where Toyota would either buy the truck back and then crush it, or replace the frame altogether with a better-designed frame. If this is a real ad and someone goes to look at it, check out the frame from the cab mounts back. Even at three grand.

    1. I was gonna say, the T-100 never really took off and you hardly see one on road.... never knew about the frame issues. Yikes!

    2. Tacomas, T100's, Tundras, 4Runners, you name it, they all did this/do this in states with harsh winters that salt their roads. They're everywhere in the south, still. Source: I live in the south.

    3. But the T100 was actually recalled for it, and these trucks had the problem in all 50 States.

    4. The T100 was NOT recalled for the rusted frames. Most definitely not. I have had two T100s since 2002. Basically checked and double checked every other year or so since then. No recall. Tacomas, yes. T100's no.
