Samuri for $200
I have the opportunity to buy a Samuri of unknown vintage (looks like an 80s model) for $200. It runs and drives pretty well and the body is beat up-but still there (mostly)! The owner uses it in a junkyard to push cars around into position....
What do you think? I'm looking for a cheap beater mud machine. I've seen pictures of Samuris with 38.5" tires...but HOW did they do that with such a short wheelbase vehichle? Also how does the anemic 1.3L 4-cylinder do it? Can the axles take it?
I have a Jeep I'm turning into a rock crawler, and I just located an FJ-40 for cheap that I was thinking about making into a baja-style truck, so working on trucks is nothing new.
