1972 Suzuki LJ20 4×4
Sometimes referred to as Brute or Jimny
Oklahoma title in my name (sold as is) This is a 50 year old classic vehicle!
Very little rust in floor pan, one rust hole near seat mount (about playing card size)
Rust where original battery mount was. See pic.
Can help as needed to load for U-ship or other transport

Thought to be correct vintage TEN “seek and scan” Suzuki radio Can manually get a station, but weak….very rare accessory!

Tire mounted on the rear is more like the original tire “look”. This is a 5.50-16 tire very similar to what was original equipment. All the original wheels on the jeep are 16 inch. This rear mounted spare tire is an inexpensive option, as it is a tractor front tire. Check prices on eBay tractor 5.50-16 tires for off road use, if you want to go for an original look!

    I had one of these back in the 80’s, being a jeep guy I was somewhat against the Suzuki name plate, but I got over it. It was very good off-road, but a little limited on the road, about 45 mph was top speed. The 2 cycle water cooled engine had a problem with the distributor gears. The distributor needed to be pulled regularly and the gear greased with special moly lube. If not done routinely, the drive gear on the crank shaft would be destroyed, basically ruining the engine. I did see one guy mount the distributor outside the engine and run it off off of a timing belt to the engine pulley. Like a lawn tractor, it energized the generator to turn the engine over. I wish I still had one, most have been destroyed or rusted out.
