Evaluation: Some scratches on the doors and general fading in the paint but nothing bad. Very clean underneath. Frame looks like it was undercoated recently. Tidy maintained engine. Quirky, cute micro SUV that someone has spent money on keeping clean and given only tasteful modifications.
Bottom Line: Most JDM Jimnys (Suzuki briefly sold a version of the Jimny in the US called the Samurai) sell for a lot closer to 10 grand these days, but this is an unusually good example, plus the ’90s colors and graphics just add to the charm. This is a high but fair price.
