Default Does this sound like rod knock to you?

An Ontario mint 1987 Toyota Cressida shell that I'm interested in on the cheap due to:

http://www.temptingf8.com/x7.mpg (right click, save as)

Doesn't sound too much like bottom end, not the rod knock sound that I know. Thoughts?





Background info:
2.8L 12-valve DOHC inline-six
