Default 1999 Grand Vitara - Buy One Get One Free

I have two 1999 Grand Vitara's that are virtually identical except one is straight shift and one is automatic. Also, the automatic went wheels up at one point and has various types of damage.

The straight shift is in good shape, and I drive it on a regular basis so I don't put miles on my newer Suzuki's. 164,300 miles.

The automatic starts and runs fine. I drive it around the yard occasionally. The 4WD works. It has a severely crecked windshield, hood and roof and left rear quarter panel damage, plus scrapes on the left (driver's) side. All doors, including the rear, all open and latch okay. No exhaust system since I stole it to put on the un-wrecked GV. It's probably fixable, but I can't afford the investment in time or money. It only had basic coverage so there was no insurance involvement in the aftermath. 221,900 miles.

Otherwise, both are pretty much the same: 2.5 V6, 4WD, AC, Planet Gold Metallic paint (Z2Z), 16" rims and tires, power mirrors, power windows, power door locks with remote, gray cloth seats. I have the titles for both.

This is the deal. I'm selling the straight shift, still on the road, GV for $1500 and the other one is free. You have to take both. I've already moved some parts from the wrecked GV to the unwrecked one: the front right fender (dented by the previous owner), the front passenger door (hit by a foul ball during a softball game), and the exhaust system (it was new before the wreck and the other one needed replacing).

The straight shift can be driven anywhere. The automatic, not so much unless you want to drive with a severly cracked windshield, no exhaust system, and headlights that work only on high beam (I needed the bulbs for the other GV). The wrecked GV will have to be trailered.

I have a few spare parts. A throttle body I bought for the MAF sensor. At least one coil pack and assorted things I can't think of right now. And of course the wrecked GV has lots of parts. Ask or PM me if you have any questions.

Check out the pictures below. Here's a YouTube video of me starting the automatic this past weekend after it's been sitting for a few months:

It's kind of grubby looking because it's surrounded by trees. The interior had a little moisture inside on the floor from the cracked windshield and I didn't clean off the mildew.

I'm located in southwestern Virginia in the Blacksburg/New River Valley area about 35 miles down the interstate from Roanoke, VA.

If no one around here is interested, they go up on Craigslist next.

If you decide to part out any of them, I'm in the market for the rear seat headrests.

The wrecked GV has a set of rear headrests out of a Tracker, I think. The Suzuki headrests are a light gray with not much of a pattern on them. The ones out of the wrecked one are darker gray with a darker pattern in them. I've attached pictures. I think because of the flash, they look a little lighter than they actually are.

I'm not taking anything off the road worthy GV, mainly because I'm still driving it around.

Default No longer buy one get one

The undamaged 99 Grand Vitara has been sold.

I still have the damaged one that I start occasionally and drive around the field. Since my initial post here, the odometer and trip meters suddenly reset to 0 and stopped working. The numbers advance when driving around but reset to 0 when I turn off the engine.

I haven't decided whether to part it out, sell it complete as a parts car, or let a local salvage yard come and get it.
