1987 Suzuki Samurai - It's Been A Long Time Since I Have Seen One This Nice...

In an earlier post about a Suzuki Grand Vitara, I mentioned that the Suzuki Samurai was becoming a sought after vehicle. They are incredibly good off-road vehicles.

But what if you don't want to use it off-road? Clean, unmolested, Samurais are getting very hard to come by.

Here's one with just 27,415 miles on it. Based on the pictures, it looks close to new.

Yes, the Samurai was great going through mud and snow, over rocks, etc. But, they weren't especially great on the road. They were slow and didn't handle very well. (Although they were not as bad as Consumer Reports claimed they were. Like many high center of gravity / short wheelbase vehicles, you could tip it, but you had to work hard to do it.) But they are relatively reliable and a lot of fun in the old-school put the top down (or take it off in this case) and cruise on a summer day way.

The asking price for this Samurai is $9,500. That's a lot of money for an old Samurai. But, when was the last time you saw on in this condition? If you have the money and are looking for a road-going Samurai, this one may well be worth the asking price.
