Default Samurai shopping: prospects.

I'm new to the forum and on the hunt for my first Samurai. I think it might be beneficial to have one thread where I can maybe post potential candidates and get feedback from more experienced owners. I appreciate any opinions. I'm in Northeast OK and wanting something close to stock.

Here's one:

I have a Suzuki Samurai i was working on, i have started installation of new fuel tank, had running prior to tank install, but due to sitting for years the front seal, and rear seal both leak and will need changed. sounds great when running, good exhaust, not a lot of rust. needs soft top (it is pictured but i have since removed and tossed). I believe this is a 2 owner car if my memory serves me correctly. New alternator, fuel filter, sending unit, fuel pump, 5 matching wheels and tires with a spare tire cover that is nice. A extremely hard to find back seat (that will need recovered) interior is all there including all pads for bars, including roll bar. carpet is still in sami and pretty nice, seats need recovered. dash is good, shifts good, clear title in hand. This sami does not need a lot to get going, i have to many projects and this needs gone. I won't be low balled please don't try, but i am fairly negotiable, bring offers.

This is a very accurate descriptions if you email asking me stupid questions, or anything that has been answered above, don't expect a response.

It looks good but the only way you can tell is to see it in person, drive it and make an offer.

You did not indicate the asking price or the model year so it is hard to give any opinion.

These trucks are usually fixer-uppers - especially if they have not been driven in a while. The more problems you find, the less the price should be. Repairs/mods do not increase the price. Lack of rust and signs of regular maintenance do. That said, they are easy to repair and maintain - but you have to be willing to get your hands greasy.

I have complete Factory Service manuals with the TBI supplement for newer non-carbed units at my website along with a lot of other helpful information!

Welcome to the Suzuki Samurai Universe!
Thank you. It is a 1987 that he is asking $1800 for. I don't mind working on one since it will be my secondary vehicle/project. I don't want a basket case, though. This one has been sitting and needs a few things to be road worthy, especially in all weather conditions. But, the body looks straight and it hasn't been modified too much. If all I need to drive it is a top, a couple of seals, and a gas tank installed, $1800 might not be a bad price? I'll get more info (miles/ interior pics/ etc) when the guy responds.
