Suzuki 1974-96

Suzuki for many years avoided collector attention but just lately people are showing interest in cars from the 1980s-90s and 4WDs from even earlier. Most common are 25-35 year-old Sierras at $4-5000 and LJ50 and LJ80 off-roaders for slightly more money.

It seemed a while back that Suzuki’s minuscule off-roaders were finished, but owners are spending big sums restoring early ones.

Rekindled interest in the Mighty Boy miniature utility is taking these towards $5000 where buyers will also find decent examples of the micro-size Carry van and pickup.

Surviving GTi Swifts remain hard to find but prices are unchanged and $7000 isn’t much for a top example of a car that once led its category in Production Car racing.

Swift GTi 1987-93 $4500 [1]
