Jimny Cricket! Suzuki LJ20 on Ebay

In these days of skyrocketing gas prices where you have to take out a mortgage just to fill up your Escalade, how about a 4×4 with two-speed transfer case that gets 50mpg? If you don’t mind putting up with a 358cc two-stroke engine, here’s the SUV for you, a 1972 Suzuki LJ20. At least its 1300lb curb weight won’t hold back the trucklet’s 32hp for a top speed of 55mph. It was never officially imported into the US, but its descendants, the Samurai/Jimny, were until Consumer Reports deemed it rollover prone.

Anyhow, this LJ20 is for sale on eBay right now and has only 25,300 miles on the clock. According to the owner, it’s got no rust, no bondo, and has been kept in a heated garage. Everything works, even the dome light and it’s still wearing shiny, original paint. This baby might be mint, but for some reason we have a sudden craving for mustard.

    Wow, great toy and it happens to be located in the town that I work in too. I’ve never been so fortunate. I’m going to watch the auction and if it doesn’t meet reserve I’ll contact the seller and see if I can go and take a look at it.
