Description for Suzuki Samurai 1988

This is a very clean and mostly original 1988 Suzuki Samurai with low miles and only two owners since new. The original owner lived in Pearce, AZ and the second owner lived in Oracle, AZ so it is rust-free. The original paint and graphics have been exposed to the Arizona sun since new so the clear coat has suffered as you can see in the pictures but the body is very straight with only a few minor dents in the hood and tailgate. The way it was parked for years allowed the sun to hit the driver's side during the hot afternoons so that's why you will notice the clear coat burn being much more prominent on the driver's side. Where the Samurai lived for most of it's live is an area of Arizona with heavy red dirt so in some of the pictures this dirt looks a lot like rust so don't be fooled because there is no significant rust anywhere on this rig. I have included pictures of the undercarriage to verify this. It is a bit dusty and dirty underneath but you can tell there is no rust to speak of. The only modifications from stock are the front seats, door panels, speakers and the radio. The front seats were removed by the second owner in favor of the current seats which are very comfortable and fold up for additional storage. I do not have the original front seats. I'm a purist and I don't like any modifications on my vehicles but I have to say the seats are much more functional and more comfortable then the original ones. The front carpet was removed many years ago and lost The rear seat was seldom used since new but suffered from being stored in a barn so it will need to be recovered but it comes with the Samurai. It also comes with a nice bikini top and the original carpet for the rear. The door panels have been redone in a heavy denim material and kind of a cute addition to the passenger's panel is a Levi pocket which makes a great cell phone holder. The Samurai was towed behind an RV it's whole life so the actual driven mileage is really much less then the stated mileage of 122,355. Mechanically it needs nothing. Tires have good tread and it runs and drives very well. Doesn't leak or smoke. No shakes or shimmies at all and tracks well. All 4WD components work as they should. The soft top is in good condition and is a Best Top brand.I have had dozens of these little rigs over the years and it used to be easy to find them all original and in great shape, but over the past 5 years or so I have seen the supply really dry up on these super fun little rigs. It seems they have all been modified, rusted out or just thrashed due to their awesome off-road capabilities. So finding one like this is getting pretty rare. It could be used as a daily driver. All gauges, lights, turn-signals, door locks, windows, heater, wipers and even the horn work. All lenses are clear and bright. If you're looking for one of these in good shape you should really consider this one. It will be advertised in other media as well so I reserve the right to end the auction early should it sell elsewhere.

It can be stored for a reasonable period of time to allow the buyer to arrange transport or fly in and drive it home. Check my feedback and check the pictures and bid with confidence. Good luck!
