Description:

1986 Suzuki Samurai

Due to some unexpected life events, I am regrettably putting up for sale my Suzuki Samurai project. It runs good, has a clear title and is already fun to drive. It is a project that just needs to be finished. I purchased this planning on making a cool all-purpose off-road vehicle but circumstances have forced me to sell it in the middle of the project. I believe I drove it about 200 miles since I bought it and only on roads.
Considering that situation, I have purchased a LOT of parts for it that are new and never installed that come with it. Please read the following carefully.
Vehicle Information
  • 1986 Suzuki Samurai
  • 66,199 miles, believed to be original
  • NO RUST anywhere that I can find. These things rusted to pieces on the showroom floor, but this one is incredibly rare to not have rust like this one. Even when I removed the factory lower rockers to put the Low Range Off-Road ones on, there was only minor surface rust, which was sanded off and then painted over with POR15. Normally this area is rusted through.
  • Starts and runs well once warmed up. Needs a bit of a tune to make it start a bit easier when cold. However, once warm, just bump the key and it fires right up and purrs like a kitten.
  • Includes side doors and soft top (shown in one picture)
  • Soft top is very good condition. Windows are clear, only one small 2" rip that has been fixed.
  • Seats (both front and rear) are in incredible condition. No rips, no damage.
  • This is like a 4x4 go-kart. Just not as fast. At all.

Important things to note before buying:
  • The first thing to note is that this is not meant to be an everyday driving vehicle. Short trips and trail riding is what it can be used for. As-is it has a top speed of about 60mph.
  • The heater system was completely removed and was not replaced. I was going to go with an electric system but didn't get to that.
  • The dash is from an updated 88.5+ Samurai
  • As part of the Sidewinder carburetor being installed, the ECM and all wiring to the ECM has been completely removed as it was no longer needed
  • Windshield wiper motor needs to be adjusted or replaced. Works intermittently.
  • There are no catalytic converters on this vehicle, so it is not something that will currently pass emissions
  • While the vehicle runs and drives fine, you will need a trailer to take delivery as there are so many extra parts that they all simply won't fit in it.
  • The radio system worked great but needs to be checked for a loose wire or bad ground somewhere. After removing the heater I cannot get the radio to get sound to the speakers. It is likely an easy fix.
  • The winch was never used. However, it has a frozen solenoid. I have a new solenoid, it just needs to be replaced.
  • If you install the included ZOR seats, you will have to remove the center console. Sell it and make some of your money back.
  • Again, this is a work in progress. It runs and drives well, but is a project that needs to be finished. Please do not expect this to be a show vehicle or every day driver without additional work being done on it.
TRAILER REQUIRED TO TAKE DELIVERY IN NASHVILLE, TN AREA BECAUSE OF THE AMOUNT OF EXTRA PARTS IT COMES WITH
