Remember when Isuzu used to be an interesting car and light truck company? Who can forget all those Joe Isuzu ads on the television? Their cars may not have been cutting edge, but they were at the forefront of the light SUV craze that swept across the country during the late 80s and early 90s. They also produced a line of very durable diesel engines that were used in across their product line. Here’s two unique Isuzu trucks that are currently available on eBay…
This is a 1985 Isuzu Diesel Pup Pickup Longbed equipped with the C223 2.3L Diesel which cranked out a whopping 58hp. What it lacked in power, it made up in economy with up to 44 MPG (Reported) on the highway. According to the listing:
1985 Isuzu Diesel Pup Pickup. 2 wheel drive. Long Bed. Since I have owned it (5 years) This is what I have done to it.
– Rebuilt and Recovered Pickup Seat (Auto Velour)
– New after market Grille (Chevy Luv Style)
– Chrome Grille Guard
– New fiberglass visor
– Custom built rear bumper w/ receiver type hitch
Has factory sheet metal bed side wall protection so you don’t get dents from things rolling around in the bed. Pioneer Mosfet 50 wx4 CD player/ AM/ FM player with removable face plate and remote. Original Floor Mat under the individual mats is in good condition. Diamond Plate Tool Box is included. The dash is in rough shape. We have a dash mat over it and it covers most of it up.
Its licensed until November 2014, Has 138,915 Miles on it. We were getting around 40 mpg. around town. The pickup has been sitting in my shop for the last year. The CSD on the side of the fuel pump started dripping about a year ago. I didn’t have time to fix it then. I got new seals and installed which appears to be dry now. The top cover on the fuel pump seems to be seeping a bit but not enough to drip as far as I can tell. The alternator is acting weak so I ordered a rebuilt alternator which should be in within a week. Not long before I parked it, I also put new brake pads on the front end and new glow plugs. Heater & defroster work good but the linkage that switches it back and forth either needs adjusted or has come loose. Block heater works good. No rust or rot. Horn, lights, turns signals all work.
Oregon Title … reads “Branded – Nevada” The reason I am selling this is because the “wifey” said I have too many pickups and something needs to go. 🙂
With over eight days to go, there has not been an opening bid yet, which starts at $3,500. I think that’s probably $1,500 high at least, but you will get a simple and durable pickup, with a long bed to boot. See the listing here: 1985 Isuzu Diesel Pup Pickup 2WD Long Box
This is a 1986 Isuzu Trooper II LS, equipped with the 2.2 Liter 4 Cyl Turbo Diesel Engine. This truck is a local Texas Truck with two owners, and according to the listing:
Texas Exclusive offers you this clean, very low mileage, and all original 1986 Isuzu Trooper II LS 4×4 equipped with a factory installed 2.2 Liter 4 Cyl Turbo Diesel Engine. This Trooper is a 2 owner truck sold new at Superior Isuzu in San Antonio, Texas and has spent its entire life in San Antonio so there’s absolutely no rust at all. It is all original both inside and out with no previous paint or body repair. It starts perfect with just the bump of the key, runs and drives great with no issues, leaks, or excessive smoke. All options are in proper working order including the factory A/C. It has a fresh service and a brand new battey. The truck is clean both inside and out showing only minor wear/tear consistent with the year model and mileage and has not been smoked in. I have proper paperwork and documentation to verify the 71K Actual miles on this Trooper along with a Clean and Clear Texas Title and Clean CarFax Report.
Here is another simple and durable Isuzu vehicle, with absolutely no frills. Look at how simple that dash is, along with an honest to God Manual Transmission, and a real transfer case shifter. It’s a two-door, with manual window regulators, cloth seats, and lots of cargo room. With 71,000 miles on the clock, the current bid is $7,100 with an unmet reserve. I’m surprised its that much, so why not take a look at the listing here: 1986 Isuzu Trooper II LS Turbo Diesel
