Who doesn’t want an awesome set of wheels? Who doesn’t long for the most powerful vehicle on the road? Who doesn’t care so much about style as long as it has a Wisconsin Engine? That would be Sparky.
1989 Toyota Sweeper Truck – $2000
odometer: 114048 fuel : gas transmission : automatic title status : parts only
OK, I got here a 1989 Toyota truck with a parking lot street sweeper attached to it. I had planned on restoring it and starting in the parking lot sweeping business but decided to go back to school. This has been sitting in my yard for the past 5 years and obviously needs work. However, the “meat and potatoes” are there. It has a 22R motor and needs various engine work. It needs a catalytic converter and a good tune up. It is also missing various small things like the filler neck and some covers. It also needs some body and interior parts. These are mostly cosmetic, but the main ones are the drivers side turn signal and rear view mirrors. The truck turns but does not start. I believe it is the fuel pump. I am in the process of ordering it and getting it fixed.
The sweeper engine was turned over when I first got it but has since not been turned over. It is a Wisconsin Engine. It also has a tilt bed that also was working but I have no way or the energy to test it. I’ve gotten offers on it before but never was motivated to sell until, but now I just want it out of my house. The paperwork has been lost but was on non-op since purchase. A bill of sale will be completed. May be good to restore or it may just be good for parts. Asking way less than what I got it for and also open to any offers, like I said I just want it gone.
Sparky had this valuable item sitting around for years, did nothing with it until it became nearly worthless, and now wants money from someone who will then be required to haul it away. The Sparky Business Plan at its best. Hint: At least get the trash out of the cab before you shoot the photos.
