Looks like a good project, burnt valve, throw a new head at 'er and you've got a rust-free 4X4 PU with Snowflakes.

"This truck has cosmetic issues with paint that can easily be polished, but no rust. It has a canopy. Tires are in great shape. Wheels are aluminum alloy. Running boards. It starts and runs. It has a burned valve in one of the cylinders. So it must be fixed. Manual transmission and 160k miles

Call Jon 503 888 fivethreefivethree"
Here's another one with no title. Cheap, though. Usually if they have no title the guy isn't the legal owner, otherwise as the OP said it'd be real easy to apply for Lost Title or sign a Release of Interest upon sale, and not have to take Fire Sale price for the rig. So, something's going on, you never know. Always a good idea to check to see if it's stolen.

Probably a bad radiator. The new head is worth his asking price, as long as the overheating didn't hurt it yet......ed

Good looking '91 Spacecab with snowflakes in Olympic WA (port angeles) ... $1500

Temptingly low mileage at 135k :idea:

(apologies if this is a repeat)
Them ads out there run a long time!!! They only run a week in the Sea-Tac area before they are killed. I'm thinkin' one reason this truck is still around is that it's quite a drive to Pt. Angeles from the Seattle area. With the tires needing replacing and the other work, he's probably gonna end up selling it closer to $1000. I'm a lot closer than Seattle to P.A. but I've already Been There, Done That, with an '89 Spacecab, and still need to get my '89 RS fixed first!!!

96 Acura SLX. $2200.

Not sure if this is a good price, but posting just for the novelty of finding an SLX for sale. Don't know about other parts of the county, but I've only ever seen 2 of these on the road.
There's a fair amount around the Seattle/Portland area, but they usually go for a lot more than $2200. And they are definitely loaded when compared to the garden-variety Trooper! Same drivetrain, though............ed

1991 Trooper.
Not too familiar with the 91. What do you all think of this price. Yes, I know that's sight unseen but opinions are welcome. Plan on seeing it tonight.
Doesn't look too bad. The pssgr's small vent window has plastic over it and likely is busted, you should be able to find a replacement at a local Pick-a-Part or whatever you have down there.

That'll have a GM 2.8 V6 with throttle-body EFI, not a carb. So the "carb problem" could be leaky injectors, a bad coolant temperature sensor, a vacuum leak, or a number of other things. If the motor starts up and seems to run OK without any nasty thrashing, gnashing, etc, it's probably something like that. If it has what sounds like bearing knocks, check for oil in the coolant and water in the oil. Lots of times the intake manifold will leak due to loosened bolts or bad RTV sealant, this sends coolant into the oil and eats up the bearings.

Typical to see valve cover and distributor O-ring oil leaks, parts to fix are pretty cheap, and if you're able to wrench for yourself you can easily fix stuff like this in an afternoon.

Check the 4WD on a dirt or gravelly road for proper engagement.

If the rig seems decent, isn't all rusted out, runs, shifts & drives OK, she's a winner. You should have room to negotiate price, with the busted wing window and any other issues you might find. I've had a number of V6 Gen I Troops and they're great rigs. Plus if you ever want more power you can swap in a Camaro/Firebird 3.4 with little more work than an engine R&R, for a ton more performance. I've been running my 3.4 LS for 10 years and love it!

G'luck and let us know what you find..........ed

But you'd think, with an engine swap, they'd at least show ONE photo of the engine compartment, and tell us which motor it is.

I thought the same, was wondering if it's the Teeey Weeny diesel or maybe a Rip-Snortin' 2.8.

I don't see a hood scoop, though! But the "Turbo Diesel" badge in the grille is cool. :thumbleft:
[/quote]Those are two interesting vehicle. Hope that someone can check the engine compartment and make sure that it's factory fitted Turbo Diesel.
FYI, '91 TFR (2WD) usually came with 4JA1L (2.5L Turbo) or 4JB1T (2.8L Turbo) while '98 Trooper came with 4JX1 (3.0L)[/quote]

They just posted another ad, it's got a Mitsubishi 2.3L 4D55T, that's a big Meh! :? :confused5:
