The LJ 10 was introduced in 1970, uzuki bought out Hopestar Co. and the rights for their ON360 in 1968, opestar built 50 ON360's in 1967/1968, he ON360 had a 359cc air-cooled Mitsubishi engine called the ME24, t had 21 horsepower @ 5500 rpm, uzuki built their own 359 cc engine with 24 hp @ 5500rpm with a compression ratio of 7.3 : 1 but very low-geared, op speed was 50 mph (80 kph) it has a climbing ability of 27.5 deg. with a gross weight of 1290 pounds (586 kg). Suzuki also introduced their Posi-Force (C.C.I.) oil injection system, his made it very convenient for LJ owners as they would never have to mix the oil and gas together themselves, he CCI would inject oil to the cylinders and the crank case, he oil that is delivered to the cylinders is 4-5 times greater in quantity than to the crankshaft. LJ's were never exported from Japan to the USA by Suzuki, ntercontinental Equipment Corporation of California imported the LJ's to America. They were sold mostly in California, evada and Arizona, he owner of IEC was a race car driver named Tim Sharp. LJ10's were only made as a Soft-top. Suzuki also made some trucks etc. with the same engine as the LJ10, uzuki called them "Carry" L40(Pickup truck), 41(Same Pickup truck with fold down bed sides) and L40V(Mini Van). Compared to the LJ20 the LJ10 is very rare in the USA.
