Please read FULL description and inspect ALL pictures before purchasing. We are happy to answer any questions you have :)
1990 Subaru Sambar 4WD imported from Japan (Has 4wd, ultra low 1st gear and locking rear differential)
Right Hand Drive (steering on other side. Fully Legal. It's not too difficult to get used to)
Fully Legal, Registered, Plated, ready to go.
42,000 Miles / 67,500 kilometers
VIN: KS4008510 (eBay forces me to put in a different VIN but this is the TRUE VIN on the car and Title and paperwork)
Matching VIN# to Ohio title and chassis. No shady things. 100% legal.
This Subaru Sambar is classified as a Kei truck in Japan which means it has smaller dimensions than your "standard" car and has a smaller motor for tax purposes and to get around crowded cities easier.
Truck bed is 4.5 ft wide by 6.5 ft long. Still a very usable truck bed for how small the truck is. Sides and tailgate also fold down to convert to a flatbed for wider loads. See pictures.
Bed is rated to haul 800+ lbs even though it's small. So it's a work horse.
Motor is 4 cylinder, 660cc, about 40 hp, 5 speed manual with Ultra low forward gear, reverse, and LOCKING differential. I have not done top speed but can cruise 45-55 easily. I do not suggest highway driving as the small motor is more comfortable around 55mph but it does have 5 gears which helps a lot if you need to take quick 60 mph ish trips on the interstate. This car is made for more city driving, delivering, cruising, off road. Motor is carbureted and runs great. Starts extremely fast and drives easily. Low HP but the car is small and light at about 1,500 lbs only and has no problem getting around. It will not win any races (haha) but it is not intended for that.
The 4wd and off road capability on these is amazing. Very robust and popular hunting / off road vehicles. Carry all of your gear and have a cab with windows, heat and radio!
Car drives great. Starts up very fast. No need to pump the gas. Just turn the key and go. Pretty simple motor. Easy to adjust small things since it is carbureted which is good since these cars were not offered in America and not the easiest to get parts. No leaks or any problems. Car runs great!
Car is 26 years old and shows in some areas. Nothing major. Just some blemishes. The truck bed floor has been replaced with a good solid truck bed so no problems there. Some dings and scrapes on the exterior. It's all shown in the pictures. We show all the bad so you are not surprised by anything and know EXACTLY what you are buying.
Seats are in good shape. Has a glove box and small cubby in dash, as well as a small pocket behind passenger seat to take advantage of the limited space inside the cab. Everything works great!
Interior dash is in good shape. No cracks or anything.
Tires are good. They are 12" street tires currently. ATV tires are a good alternative. Bolt pattern is 4x100 which is very common so you can swap for other wheels. Up to 14" fit very easily and look good and have a wide variety of tires options. I have seen many with a small lift and some meaty 12" off road tires. Very cool looking.
Pictures are the best way for us to show the condition. Please inspect them all closely, and check out all the details.
Car is Federally Legal, comes with all necessary DOT, EPA, Customs, etc. paperwork. Please research your state and ask your local DMV how to plate and register. It is currently Ohio Titled and Plated. We have no emissions laws where the car is currently registered.
If you live in CALIFORNIA or HAWAII, you basically can NOT register this car in those states due to their extremely expensive and extensive emissions and registration laws. If you live in CALIFORNIA or HAWAII, do NOT make an offer without fully realizing this and messaging me first or I will instantly decline your offer or cancel your order. This is to protect YOU.
Buyer is to arrange and pay for all shipping charges. I would advise against driving the car long distances anywhere as the top speed is low and parts are not readily available just in case you hit a large pothole or other drivers around you do stupid things. You can never be sure about how other drivers.
Please do NOT purchase if you do not intend to go through with the transaction. Thank you.
