this is the car i drive. my Justy is inside that barn in the background sadly. this is registered as a 88 model but it is an older body so i think it is a '87 registered in '88. it is pretty rusted but only on the surface, there are absolutely no holes. i was sanding down the rust spots and paiting over with a rattlecan until winter struck. you can not paint in freezing temperatures. i bought it last spring, this is my first car. the justy was/is my second. it has a 1500cc 4 cylender carbourated engine. the registration paper says that it has 68 hp. I find that hard to believe, my justy felt a lot more energetic. probeply a few horses have escaped over the years. it is registered 1005kg. it has 6 gears. 1-5 and r. then there is ExtraLow, when things get real. also you can change between fwd and 4wd with the little stick. this is a monster in the snow. i bought new spike tieres early this winter. here in Iceland we have a lot of ice in the winter and no matter how good your car is it is useless if you do not have spike tieres. this moment there is a thin layer of snow on top of ice so everything is extra slippery. the exhoust pipe has rusted apart under the car, the waterpump seal is leaking and the distibutour and valves may need adjusting but it runs like a charm once it has heated up. it also has the coolest seats i have seen, i want to put them in a justy. does anyone have an idea what rv special stands for?

Neat car, your right the seats are great, I LOVE plaid! I think "R.V." Stands for -Recreation Vehicle typically in reference to a camping or off road thing like a quad.

I would agree with gearheadeh it's probably the fact that it is 4wd. I love a toyota especially older yoters my daily driver is a 222222 (rolled over to that no. the other day ) mi 95 toyota tacoma, I call The Taco or El Taco. As far as older toyotas go like yours we don't see them often in the US at least not in the southeast. Awesome car by the way love it!
deegore: I slept in my 2 door driving from AZ to MN. Some front seats that fold flat would be necessary to really get comfortable.

justytrudeau: FWD means you don’t have to worry about any problems that can come up with the AWD system. AWD is clutch in snowier climates, but the pre 90’s models have carbeuraters instead of being fuel injected. Carbs can cause some issues in the winter time.

justytrudeau: Anyone put LED's in their instrumental panel? I have to remove the whole dash to get to 'em, figured it'd put off having to do it again by a few years.

Bredmirror: Can a Suzuki Gti engine fit into a Gl manual Justy?

Justy1200cc: bredmirror, if you do it you would need the suzuki transmission. I think it's searchable on the forum for more details

bredmirror: Thats what Im planning to do. However, if the engine and the transmission won't fit then Im just gonna upgrade the stock engine and get a tubo kit for it.

justytrudeau: Just replaced my headlights with LED's as well as all my dashboard instrument cluster. None of them work, and now my taillights have gone out too. Likely wiring issue, eh?
