I'm selling a 1989 Isuzu Trooper RS that is in good running condition. $1500 OBO. 238,000 miles. I bought the vehicle a year ago, and have put less than a 1,000 miles on it since. The truth is that I needed the car as an A to B, but since I soon moved across the street from my workplace, I rarely needed to drive at all. Since the car does need some mechanical fixes, and I have limited resources to keep it on the road, I am sadly selling this vehicle. I do love this truck, but I figured there is nowehere better to post it than here, where there are quite a few people who know this vehicle and might give it the TLC it needs. I will be posting images this weekend.
The vehicle does have a few needs, that are mostly cosmetic.
On the mechanical side: Needs master cylinder replaced in the brakes. I have the part, just haven't gotten around to replacing it.
Radiator leaks. I have been adding fluid once a week, or right before taking it out.
Vehicle does have rust on body. Not a rust bucket, but especially around wheels, there are rust issues.
Vehicle has a dented front bumper. That was the way I bought it.
Upholstery is badly worn.
Glove box lock/handle needs to be reattached. Some bum broke it looking for change in the car, when I left the doors unlocked.
Driver's side door has a sticky lock.
Very small ding in front windshield (probably from a pebble) in bottom left corner (does not obstruct view, has probably been there for years).
Fuel gauge broken.
O2 light permanently on.
Probably needs a tune up.
Motor runs well.
Transmission shifts well. It can get up to 70 no problem. Sometimes getting the stick into second can be a little fussy, but it runs well on all gears.
4 relatively new Firestone 31's 10.5 15's.
Relatively new battery. Starts up no problem!
In the right hands, the truck can be brought back from the ashes to be the rad head turner it deserves to be. As is, this trooper will get you around town.
If interested, let me know. I am in Kansas City, MO. You would have to arrange for pick up/delivery...
