Description for Suzuki Samurai 1988

A RARE FIND! Stock Tin-Top Samurai in Complete / Unmolested Condition! Has Cloth Interior, Rear Seat, Dealer Air and Dealer Brush-guards. Great Restoration Project or Off-Road Project. It Runs, Drives, Shifts and Stops, but is 30+ years old and has been in storage for over a year.
MANY NEW RESTORATION and MECHANICAL PARTS INCLUDED!
Mechanical- Motor starts and runs well. The carb/auto choke is a little cold-natured and runs rich. It’s the original with ALL the original emission lines and vacuums. The check engine light will flash intermittently because of the emissions. It can make it to 55mph now, but bogs down under load.
4WD- Has Factory Warn-type Hubs. 2H, 4H and 4L all work.
AC- Has all components intact, but will need work.
Electrical- Lights and Fans and Wipers work as they should.
Body- Body is straight and rust free. It has normal paint chips and surface scratches and some surface rust for a 30 year old vehicle. The only real damage to the body is the right front plastic fender flare, a stress crack in doors (weight of mirrors) and surface rust near windshield. I haven't pulled the rubber back but the surface holds up to a screw-driver.
Interior-Interior is dirty from storage, but all intact and should clean up well. The only damage is the repairable tear in vinyl on the drivers seat. Original take out carpet.
Suspension- It is at stock height and sits up squarely. The rubber bushings are worn and there is a little play in the steering. Brakes work as should, but are 30 years old as well. Tires look good but are old.
NEW PARTS:WEBER Manual Choke Carb Conversion (uses Factory Airbox), Electric Fuel Pump Conversion, IgnitionTune-Up Parts, Front/Rear Brake Rotors, Drums and Pads. Shocks, All Poly Bushings, Header, 1-1.5" Lift Shackles, Door Moldings. This stuff will get it very roadworthy!
Candidly, it looks better in photos than in person. But has GREAT Potential!Please plan on trailer or dolly to carry home.
A $500 Deposit is due at Auction end. Must be picked up before end of January in Dadeville, Alabama.
Please feel free to ask any questions!
Thanks!
