After 9 years of lj10. com we have found and contacted the original owner of IEC. the importer of LJ10's and 20's We learned that there were 3. 00 to 3. 00 LJ10 and LJ20's sold by IEC up till 1974 when they sold to USA Suzuki which after that politics and emission standards stopped the sales of LJ's until the Samurai. At one point Suzuki was going to put a 800CC 4Cyl made by Daihatsu into the LJ20's but never did. "Tacoma Wheel" company are the designers of the white aftermarket wheels on the LJ20 that IEC sold as an option and "House of Steel" out of San Diego made the Spare Tire Carriers. The first year IEC sold LJ's approximately 175 rigs were sold. 800 were sold by the second year. 2. 00 by the third and then 3. 00 in their fourth and final year when USA Suzuki saw that there Was a market for the LJ's. they didn't think there would be in the USA and so did not want to import them and that is when IEC stepped in and well you know the rest of the story. Mexico bought a few LJ's from IEC.
THIS LITTLE LJ10 IS VERY ORIGINAL WITH SOFT TOP AND DOORS. WHICH ARE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1970 is the first year for the LJ it was called the LJ10 also known as Jimny or Brute IV. LJ stands for Light Jeep. the name Jimny came from a misunderstanding of what was told to some Japanese Suzuki delegates visiting Scotland for the first time. they decided to call their new jeep Jimmy. but somewhere between Scotland and Japan they lost the translation and so they called it Jimny. it was the only 4x4 mass-produced in Japan's domestic mini-car category. the engine size. length and width were regulated in Japan by the Japanese Transportation Guideline in which to be classified as a Mini Car they had to stay within the specified size. and to keep within the length they had to place the Spare Tire behind the driver seat. They also added a third seat behind the passenger seat. The LJ10 came with 16” wheels and tires. horizontal style grille. air-cooled. 4 speed. fold down windshield and only came in a soft-top version. 1972 Suzuki introduced the LJ20 it had a water-cooled engine with 28 horsepower @ 5500 rpm the grille was changed to a vertical style and you could get it in two versions. the LJ20O the O stands for Open or the LJ20V in which the V stands for Van and also had only 15” wheels and tires. if you have or ever seen a LJ20V you'll noticed they have the windshield tie down “loops” for a fold down windshield but the V doesn't have a fold down windshield. the reason is they make the same fenders for the O as they do for the V. Suzuki did not only make jeeps with this type of engine etc. they also made what they call a “Carry” L40 which was a enclosed pickup. a L41 which is the same as the L40 but has fold-down bed sides. then the L40V which looks just like a mini van (wow the first true mini van). The LJ20 stayed in production till 1976. LJ's stopped coming into the USA around 1974 possibly due to the US being more strict on emissions. Next was the LJ50 and LJ55 also known as Jimny 550. the engine was changed to a 539 cc 3 cylinder 2 stroke with a horsepower rated 35 @ 5500 rpm. they were also slightly bigger in size because of the lift on the Mini-Car guidelines. 1977 brought the LJ80; LJ81 is the pickup model. they had a 4 cylinder 4-stroke with an overhead cam 797 cc engine with a 42 horsepower @ 5500 rpm. In 1980 the SJ10 came about and then came the SJ410 and SJ413. Up till The Samurai none of these were exported by Suzuki to the USA. the Intercontinental Equipment Corporation brought the most part of the LJ's to America. (but attempts to find IEC and it's owners has been futile)
THIS SITE. LJ10. COM. ALSO CAN FIND ANY PARTS THAT MAY BE NEEDED IN THE FUTURE
