This is the newest car I've ever owned...
I had an '87 4x4 5 speed; one of the best vehicles I ever owned, until I bought the Delica.
The only thing to watch for on those is overheating and the head warping or head gasket going. Probably due to the lack of air flow with the engine placement. Make sure the thermostat's good and keep the rad free of sand and dirt
