Includes Isuzu Trooper II Electrical Troubleshooting Manual and Shop Repair Manual Intent of sale I don't normally have great concerns for old cars just for the sake of old cars but certain vehicles have earned a place in the hearts of car enthusiast and they deserve the opportunity to make good on that desire to own one of these vehicles. I think the ISUZU Trooper II is one of those vehicles and I would like to see someone realize his dream of owning one of these iconic vehicle. That is why I have chosen this venue to sell the car. I came into ownership of this car through my truck repair business, doing a complete out of chassis engine rebuild for the customer on it. 2 years later I purchased it from him upon his buying a new Hummer. I drove it for a year until the camshaft drive sprocket fractured and the engine stopped running. It was a perfectly well mannered truck through all of my time with it. The vehicle was not a high priority at the time so we put it in the back of the garage and tore the front off of the engine (cover, cam sprocket, radiator, timing belt, tensioner etc.) Condition In addition to the above, the vehicle condition is excellent with straight metal, full body length mirrored rock guards, and metallic grey paint topped off with a factory installed ISUZU top rack. Some paint fading on drivers door window sill (where drivers rests arm) The vehicle is a southern (Atlanta Georgia) car and is TOTALLY rust free and is stored in a heated basement. Subtractions are minimal, a single ding in the mirrored rock guard panel and the right side rear door, and a small (2") crease in the leading edge of the hood. All other glass is intact but the windshield has a small rock star in the lower middle. As they say on Amazon, "What's in the Box”? What are the expectations one can have for this purchase? After all it is not just a used car. First, think of it as an artists canvas...with MUCH of the background already filled in. If you were to purchase a vehicle in considerably worse condition for its parts value alone, $1000 would be the going rate at LEAST. Then starts the long and laborious task of collecting all of the bits and pieces needed to cover all of the cannibalism that is the normal condition with any vehicle after they have sat for a while. Then comes the discovery that one of more of the mechanical parts does not work or needs replacement. More expense. I cannot give you a guarantee on this car, all I can say is that all of the vehicle components were working when the cam sprocket broke. Mechanically you have a vehicle with two ways to go; you can purchase a new cam sprocket, radiator, water pump, timing belt, and belt tensioner, and proceed to put the engine back together. You will have essentially a rebuilt motor and a drivable vehicle. OR, you can go Commando and replace the existing engine (even selling the take-out unit to some one that has suffered a worse mis-fortune than a broken cam sprocket) with the latest and greatest V-6 Chebby turbo rocket. Because of the basic condition of this vehicle you have many paths on which to travel. Vehicle comes with Georgia Title in my name, ignition key, and 2 ISUZU Factory service manuals, one on Electrical Troubleshooting and Wiring Schematics and the other on mechanical and body repairs. Both manuals are in very good condition. and at current Internet Rape prices, a $625 value alone. ALL parts and fasteners removed from engine will be shipped with the vehicle in a container, sans the radiator and camshaft sprocket. Includes a new (never installed AIR injector tube) Vehicle is sold "As is, Where Is”, and purchaser will have to provide for surface transportation from ZIP 30047. Vehicle can be wreckered on a flatbed or in tow. Now for the REALLY sad news. This truck has to go. My options are as follows; 1. Call up the local Public Broadcasting Station and donate the car to them, receiving a REALLY NICELY framed Certificate of Appreciation for my contribution of...fill in the blank space...and a boiler plate form announcing the donation to the IRS and giving me the right to argue over the vehicle's relative value as junk. 2. Call up the local "We Buy Junk Cars" broker-you know, the ones running around in a SCION with a full body wrap and their 800 number on it-and give me $250 cash (we would have offered you more but we have to discount for the tires, scrap yard won't take them) 3. Part the vehicle out-kinda like a bunch of O.R. surgeons hanging around the hospital morgue waiting for some hapless victim to FINALLY do THEM a favor and cash in his chips. After all of the GOOD stuff is taken, (doors, fenders, tire/wheels, computer, transmission, transfer case, torsion bars, rear axle, seats) the carcass is unceremoniously handed back to the family for disposal (WITH that obligatory Certificate of Appreciation) 4. And finally, selling it intact to someone who can REALLY appreciate the potential of the vehicle and will strive to do justice by it. THAT is what I want to have happen for the truck.
