I have a 1986 RHD, 2.5 non-turbo very original ninety up for sale in Minnesota. I brought it over from the UK back in August, it is titled in my name and registered in Minnesota, so it should be no more difficult to transfer than any other vehicle.
This truck runs and drives very nicely. Starts well, smokes a little bit on start up, and then runs nicely. Steering is nice and tight - handles quite well. Power steering functions well. Brakes appear solid and straight. Interior is in very nice shape with new black vinyl front seats and three matching jump seats in back. Center console appears to be new as well.
Tub seems to be in nice shape. Frame looks to have been patched in a few places near the rear wheel wells. Patch work appears to be welded professionally and seems solid. The part of the frame that had any patch work was cleaned, coated in POR-15, and then undercoating. I'd assume it would remain quite solid and usable for the foreseeable future. One or two of the tub crossmembers under the rear bed look to have been repaired at some point as well. Exterior looks very nice for an original unrestored truck of this vintage. Some minor corrosion around the bottom of the doors and near the rear corners.
The only mechanical flaw I can tell is that one of the wheels appears to seep grease from the center cap, which looks to be dried out. Haven't driven it more than a few miles since noticing this issue as I don't want to damage any spindles or bearings. Appears to be a very simple fix - if I can find the correct replacement part!
All in all, this is a very nice, solid daily driver with just the right amount of 80's flair and patina. Or would make an awesome start for a total resto. It is titled in my personal name, and I have driven it intermittently since purchasing, though not during the polar vortex
I do own a small dealership that specializes in older trucks, so it will be sad to see it leave it's family of Scouts, Broncos, a RRC, and other kin.
Vehicle is located near Saint Cloud, MN. Would be happy to show to anyone interested, or to take pictures of whatever you like. Very happy to arrange shipping at no extra cost, and would be happy to deliver in and around Saint Cloud or the twin cities for no charge.
I'm asking $15,000 - it is on my local craigslist and is on ebay as well right now. The ebay listing is no reserve.
Feel free to email or call/text for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
651-343-3378. Will attempt to post pictures as well, or you can just look on the ebay or minneapolis craigslist posting - it's the red one with stripes.
