For Sale: 1977 Suzuki LJ50 in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1977 Suzuki LJ50 is a true 4x4 built in the tradition of small but might Japanese Kei cars. So it's something both unique and rugged for some interesting classic car fun.

These were nicknamed Jimny, and the bright yellow paint makes this little guy as endearing as a cricket. It's not a concours-level presentation, because after all, it's still a 4x4. But there is a nice level of detail - right down to the Suzuki insignia in the backup light. And while these were not heavy on options, this has some very desirable details. The full-size spare on a rear swing-away mount, which signals a later JL model. And you have an attractive-looking tan package with full soft doors and a full convertible top (just look at how clean those side windows are!) that make this look like a true mini Jeep.

The Jimny was more often sold in RHD markets like Japan and Australia, and so it seems quite rare to find an LHD model. These are meant to be open to the world, and so you have a package that's basic but attractive. You even have the exterior style of a bright yellow with white accents continue inside. There's a grippy classic steering wheel, four-speed floor shift, essential gauges (with speedo in kilometers,) thick rubber mats, and even proper shoulder seatbelts. And there are two high-back bucket seats to provide good comfort. There is no rear seat, because after all, keeping weight down keeps the fun going.

Under the hood is the 539cc motor. It's a minuscule size made to fit Japanese Kei car standards. But the secret is it's a two-stroke setup. That means a durable construction and more revolutions/power than a four-stroke counterpart. It's still by no means a speed demon, but it does give this the right substance to be a bit of fun around town, in the neighborhood, or on the farm trails. So it's a small but rugged 4x4. And the big-time racers out there are likely thinking about how this could be the coolest paddock vehicle that would turn more heads than the million-dollar race cars.

Good things come in small packages. So if you're looking to be unique and memorable, this Suzuki LJ50 is an awesome find. Call today!!!
