NO RESERVE, min. bid $7400.  If you bid you are committing to PURCHASE this vehicle. $500 deposit due within 48 hours after close of auction and full payment within 7 days. I will not ship but will make available for pickup. It has a tow bar and wiring so it can be towed anywhere or you can drive it anywhere. (I drove it from San Diego to Minnesota when I bought it) 

NO TRADES, WILL NOT SELL PARTS, and will not sell outside of the ebay auction.

I purchased this rare 1986 tin top Samurai in 2008 from a close friend in San Diego.  He used it to tow behind his motorhome.  Since I have owned it I have stored it in an enclosed trailer from Oct.-April every year.  It's never seen snow.  It is rust free with the exception of the surface spots shown in the pics. It is 90% stock and original.   The only modifications are a new exhaust, new door straps, add-a-leaf springs on all four corners (easily removed if you want)  to give about an inch and a half of lift to allow for the five brand new BF Goodrich Long Trail T/A 215/75-15 tires, which are a bit taller than stock,  the carb vent tube, the tow brackets and wiring, and new window channel rubber. Everything else is original including the mud flaps, trailer hitch etc. 

It runs great, the interior is good,   the seats are good with the exception of the vinyl split on the drivers seat back. They need to be cleaned!  If selling price exceeds $7500 I will include a grey fabric Rugged Ridge Samurai seat !!

Everything works, the carpet is like new, 4x4 works flawlessly. The body is straight and correct.  Fan has all speeds, intermittent wipers work, radio works, clock works, etc.   

INCLUDES Suzuki SHOP MANUALS and VEHICLE COVER ! !   Also includes many extra little parts, wiper blades, spare door mirror(new)  cubby hole door, and other misc. stuff. (I might have air and oil filters around too, but no promises)  The tow bar attaches in minutes, and it's wired so all you do is plug it in to your vehicle trailer plug and then the rear lights, turn signals, etc work along with your vehicle lights.

The paint has faded in spots, see the pics, it is worn off on the driver's side interior at the base of the window (where your arm hangs out in the summer!) the paint on the top of the bumper is faded, and the paint under the rear door lock is flawed.  There are a couple small dings on the passenger side of the hood apparently from the roof rack bracket contacting it when it was lifted into place.  The stripes are cracking in spots from the sun.  

If you have any questions, please ask BEFORE bidding.

Four seniors to drive around world in pair of Suzuki Jimny SUVs for charity

Fri, 29 Mar 2013 07:58:00 EST

Plenty of us here at Autoblog have designs for epic drives. Whether it's bouncing around the country in an old International or heading from Alaska to Chile on a bike, we like to think we have big aspirations. Or at least we did until we heard about these four gentlemen. You see, Leslie George Carvall, Alan Butler, Glyn Maher and Charles Scott are all in their 70's, and they plan to pile into a pair of Suzuki Jimny SUVs and drive around the world. Sort of makes a hike across country seem like a trip down the block to the local corner store. They're calling it "The Ultimate Challenge," and they plan to undertake the journey for two reasons.
First, they want to prove that age shouldn't stand in the way of people doing what they want to do. Second, the group hopes to raise funds for the 'Heaven Can Wait I'm Busy' group, which aims to direct money toward worthy charities both in the UK and around the world. Save the Children and Oakhaven Hospice are the two currently designated charities.
The trip gets started in just three days, and you can head over to the effort's site to track their progress. The route should cover some 16,500 road miles and 10,375 sea miles. You can also catch up with the project on Facebook.

Suzuki Kizashi recalled due to pesky spiders

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 15:30:00 EST

Spiders seem to love the fuel tanks of Japanese sedans. Mazda had to recall its Mazda6 twice for arachnid webs blocking their car's vent lines. Now, the Suzuki Kizashi is also being called in because spiders can block the car's evaporative canister vent hose, a condition which could cause excessive negative pressure in the tank, eventually leading to a crack and fuel leak. The campaign covers about 19,249 examples of the 2010-2013 model year Kizashi built from October 2009 through July 2012.
According to the automaker's defect notice released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the first report of a spiderweb blocking a vent line was in 2011. It began monitoring field data and found six more incidents from 2011 to 2013. In 2014, there was one more case, and with further investigation, Suzuki decided to initiate a recall. There are no reports of accidents or injuries of the webs causing accidents or injuries in the US.
In a similar move to Mazda, Suzuki is replacing the evaporative canister vent line with one that has a filter in place to keep the spiders out. Also, if the lines are obstructed by webs in a specific vehicle, the fuel tank will also get swapped. Scroll down to read the full recall announcement from NHTSA.

Next Suzuki SX4 spotted again

Wed, 05 Sep 2012 09:31:00 EST

Thanks to a sketch of the Suzuki S-Cross concept, we can already see the styling direction that the next-generation SX4 will take, and Suzuki is still hard at work on the production version of the car as evidenced by this latest batch of spy shots. These photos look almost identical to those captured back in July, but we see a little more detail at the rear of the car and get a better idea of the next SX4's proportions.
With the baggy camouflage lifted up at the rear of this prototype, we can see that the SX4 replacement has a very Mazda-chic look to it with downward-angled taillights that stretch into the liftgate. Aside from this, the big news is that we're finally getting a sense of the new SX4's size. Suzuki's press release attached to the Paris-bound S-Cross sketch said that the SX4 replacement would be growing to the compact segment rather than being a subcompact like the current car. Recent reports indicate that the next version of this car will be sized closer to the Grand Vitara, and in these pictures, you can definitely see how much the car has grown.
Still unknown is when we can expect to see the production version of the new SX4, or what will be inside it (available turbo power?), but hopefully Suzuki will not delay things like it did with the Kizashi and its numerous concepts.
