 1988 Suzuki Samurai Tintop
This is my highly desirable tintop Samurai. It starts right up every time. it is super fun to drive. I get complimented on it everywhere I take it. It has a complete interior (not gutted). Tires are really nice mud tires. It is not a rust bucket. It has very little rust on this little Sammie. 2 known spots (shown in photos with brown paint around the rust to slow the spread).   No ragtop to rip and leak or be broken into! Great on gas and you can drive it right to the trails no need for a trailer like a rhino. gator. razor (etc. ) plus it is enclosed from the elements too. We are very knowledgeable about shipping and will meet your shipper if needed.

Engine runs good. transmission shifts smoothly. transfer case works well (4wd). manual locking hubs work. dome light works.   Has lift shackles on the front and rear leaves to clear the good condition 31x10. 5s on sidekick rims.   Otherwise. it is stock.   Mileage is about 81k. and I believe it to be original. The original back seat is installed and in good shape.   All windows and doors work as they should. All dash lights work. turn signal lights work. has a spare tire that is usable.

Seats are in good shape and it has the back seat with seat belt. The headliner is in good condition too. It has rubber tray floor mats to capture dirt and mud. Light duty 2" receiver hitch.

Minor issues:  The brake fluid disappears over time. I keep an eye on it. The brakes work as they should. but you have to keep the resivoir topped off as noted. The tires do rub when you turn the steering wheel all the way.   They could use some spacers (about $60. 00 on ebay)(or just give it some more lift).   The fuel gauge does not work ($25 online. I can send a link if this is important to you).   The driver's door inside handle is broken off short.   I can open it. but someone with weaker fingers may not be able to.   They are also available online.   The speedometer cable needs replacing. All in all. for about $200. all these issues can be solved. They are all common. easy fixes on these little Sammies. I may have missed very minor things. I'm a pretty straight forward guy and don't go for a lot of bells and whistles (this has no A/C and I didn't need something with A/C). So. if you need to know about something specific. you better write me before you bid. Again. I love this little truck I just don't have money to keep it as I'm setting up a little larger offroader for my family as my son is over 6 feet tall and growing (no room for him in the back seat for off road trips).

I love this little truck and don't want to sell it. I had been looking for a decent tintop for years. but I'm rarely using her lately due to my HUGE kid outgrowing the back seat (and this is our hobby together). This is a dirty. nimble. hardy truck and these are the qualities most men are looking for. she even has a cute rack! If you want a clean parade queen. this girl is more of a dirty trail bunny. She has a cherry bomb muffler and she is painted cammo by a buddy of mine. I get oh so many compliments on her now. but I was looking to go with a flat black. The paint is in decent condition.

This Sammy has a clear Florida title in my name. We are in Saint Augustine. Florida 32092. We are very knowledgeable about shipping and will meet your shipper if needed.

Deposit is due via paypal within 24 hours firm. This truck will be resold without remorse if the deposit isn't in my paypal account within 24 hours of auction close. this is firm. Full payment within 3 days of auction close.

I will post interior pictures. so check back for them. I took it out on the trails this weekend and it is dirty.

from Alex Avracen, dated 11 march 2015
Is it still for sale? I have a farm in TN and need something like your vehicle for the off-road trails, light farm work and local runs (5-25 ml. one-way distance mostly). Do you think it will do? Can I tow a light trailer (feed, hay, timber)? (516) 374-7890.
