'91 Bighorn Irmscher S Wide-body 5-Dr Blue

Postby e2todd » Sun Nov 10, 2013 12:10 am

ITEM: ISUZU BIGHORN 2.8DT IRMSCHER S (1991) 2.8TD 4JB1T 5-door 2800cc turbo diesel, 153,000kms

CONDITION
Imported nearly 20 years ago, this is the last of classic shaped Bighorn models and is the pick of the bunch featuring the full factory specification Irmscher 'S' option pack - polished 16" split rims wheels, electric windows and mirrors, leather steering wheel, power auto, tuned suspension, flared guards, etc
Cherished by the one and only NZ owner it has been kept garaged and only lightly used for fun - fishing, skiing, golfing and occasional camping trips as evidenced by the clean and comfortable cloth Recaro driving seats and matching black rear seats in very good condition.
Underneath the chassis is solid, suspension tight and is topped with a very tidy body complete with minor dings, scratches minor blemishes commensurate with age/use. Protective Irmscher front/rear bull-bars come complete with spot-lights/tow-bar whilst full length alloy rock-slider rails offer improved step access to all four doors.
Super low milage 2.8 turbo diesel and automatic transmission have never been mistreated or overheated and always starts first time every time thanks to regular servicing. There is a noticeable underside oil leak (rear crank seal?) and it smokes a little until warmed up (valve stem seals?) but both these faults have not got any worse for over ten years.
In summary its a rare retro look Bighorn that drives exceptionally smooth with plenty more years of discovery and adventure left!

PRICE $2,975

Terrific news Jared, end of an era but glad to see it go to a new home to be cherished!

In terms of its present condition, i suspect it probably won't be as shiny as the pictures, as my Dad probably hasn't kept up the buffing!

Anyhow ask him about the replacement front indicators that I sent him !

Cheers, Todd
