Hold My Jackaroo: 1991 Isuzu Trooper

Most people know the big three Japanese auto manufactures Honda, Nissan and Toyota for their mainstream approach to car design and sales…but Japan has many auto manufacturers for an island that has less than 2% of the world’s population. If Mazda is the other Japanese car manufacturer like pork is the other white meat, and Subaru is lamb…then where does that leave Isuzu (and don’t even start with Daihatsu and Suzuki)?  Isuzu might not export cars into the USA anymore, but for a few decades it was an interesting alternative to the other guys…and another other white meat…maybe ostrich? Find this 1991 Isuzu Trooper offered for $3500 in Hollywood, CA via craigslist.

OBO! Let’s talk turkey!

I’m selling my first generation, 1991 Isuzu Trooper. This is the last model year for the first gen Troopers that have the iconic, sought after boxy look of the 90s—and one of the few model years with automatic transmission!

If you’re looking for a beach car, off-road truck, or daily/weekend driver, this Trooper can quench that thirst. These 5-door, 4WD vintage trucks are hard to come by, especially in fully-functional condition. California plates.

This is a 30 year old truck! It drives just fine, even on the highway at 70 MPH. But keep in mind: it is loud, it swallows gas, but it is fun as hell and people can’t help but wave at you when you drive by.
