It sold for $5,525.00. I am slightly shocked. This is the most I have seen a non-diesel 1st gen Trooper sell for since I got into the Isuzu bizness. This make me feel even better about my $2,500 91 with 70,000 miles.
After years of hoarding black '89 RS interior parts for a complete 4dr interior swap, I have finally finished! All in all, I am happy with the results. It needs a little tweaking here and there however.
This Trooper is up to over $4,000 on eBay with 5 days left at the time of this writing. There's nothing all that special about it, other than the fact that it is clean. I've said it before, and I will say it again. We are definitely at the beginning of a rising trend in gen 1 Trooper prices. Just like the Broncos and FJs before them, the Trooper will have its day in the sun.
Check out this Hillman Minx! I've never seen one for sale, and this one is very restorable. In case you're wondering, the Hillman Minx was technically the first Isuzu passenger vehicle sold in the US market before the Bellel. Read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillman_Minx
Check out this retro '88 Trooper. This one has a rare two tone, most likely factory paint scheme as well as a rare two tone interior color package. Plus, it has a car phone...that probably doesn't work, but coupled with the OEM tape deck, you can't go wrong if you are looking for a fully '80s SUV with all the trimmings.
