386-miles Suzuki LJ

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

A time­warp con­di­tion 1981 Suzuki LJ80 with just 386 miles on its rec­tan­gu­lar speedome­ter will be avail­able to buy at auc­tion. Anglia Car Auc­tions will of­fer the mini off-roader at its 5 Novem­ber sale in Kings Lynn, Nor­folk.

Recom­mis­sioned in June this year, fol­low­ing 28 years in stor­age, the ven­dor says it was used as a demo car for jour­nal­ists. It also fea­tured in Rhino magazine – a pub­li­ca­tion for Suzuki 4x4 own­ers. ACA boss Rob Ge­orge says: ‘ The car is fan­tas­tic and is one for a mu­seum or a col­lec­tor. You’ve got to see it to be­lieve it.’

It comes with an MoT valid to Au­gust 2017, should the new owner wish to put some proper mileage on it.

Suzuki UK has a small press fleet, but is rul­ing out buy­ing this car. Alun Parry, head of press and public re­la­tions for the man­u­fac­turer, says: ‘We are aware of this fan­tas­tic car – we spot­ted it re­cently. We will watch the auc­tion re­sult with great in­ter­est. If we had enough stor­age space we would cer­tainly be bid­ding!’
