I found the best man to take this rare car. I can sleep easy. This is a guy who works in my jet shop, and is converting a 97 Celica to a 4wd turbo using Japan parts. He loves this Isuzu Impulse RS, and recognizes it's true potential. He's already putting it back together and developing a solid build plan for the motor.

The world shall go one without the death of one more rare JNC, at least for now!


a little late, but moved to the proper section :wink:

spotted a preserved and mostly intact rs in the boneyard last week
i don't know about the drivetrain, but the exterior just needed some sprucing up to look minty


Get it! The guy will have spare parts from my donor RS when he's done with the main entree RS LoL


tempting! funny thing is nobody had really touched the car yet
typically, the buzzards have picked the cars to the bone

I'll jump in here. You might join http://www.isuzone.org/forums/, lots of good info on there.

I am smack in the middle of a restore/refresh of my 1987 Impulse. Personally, I'll agree with the previous reply about the "wrong designer for the body", but otherwise, these little cars are supposedly wicked. I just think the 90s style Saturnish body is, well, butt ugly. I prefer the JR over the JI body bigtime.

Glad you found a home for it. Too many of these cars are going to the crusher. I've never been a fan of the 2nd gen Impulse (or hardly any 90s body style for that matter), but still, I have an appreciation and know these cars are important. I'm currently knee deep in my 87 Impulse's rebuild.
