You are looking at a SUPER rare (1-of-only-26 left in existence) Jeep Comanche pickup with the factory turbo-diesel engine. It has a 5-speed manual with overdrive, and gets 35mpg on the highway. The engine runs great, and has lots of power (I think due to the waste-gate being non-functional, so you have to watch the boost-gauge under hard-acceleration, or while towing). I had a Cherokee with this engine & transmission configuration, and it was slow-as-a-turtle compared to this little truck! Unfortunately, the starter just quit working, and the brakes are working poorly, so it will need to be trailered, but the vehicle can be roll-started, so you can definitelyh test-drive it. It runs like a scalded-dog. Very powerful for such a little engine! I did buy a brand new starter which will come with it, but I have not had time to install it yet. I’ve got a ton of projects going right now. As you can see, the body isn’t pretty, BUT it’s mostly surface rust. There are some holes, specifically the floorboards of the cab, but they can be patched easily enough. The undercarriage-structure is VERY solid though, and not rotted out. There hasn’t been a single small diesel pickup available for the U.S. Market since 1987, so this thing is super-collectible. There is a place right up the road from me called Mobility RV. They sell anything you could possibly need for this diesel engine, as Winnebago used them in their LeSharo campers back in the ’80s. This engine has been recently rebuilt, and should be good to go for many years to come. I have a whole yard full of other rare diesel 4x4 vehicles. I can be reached afternoons/evenings at 64l 5l2 5229. Please don’t text or call me asking if the vehicle’s still available for sale. If it’s still on Craigslist, I’ve still got it. I know what I’ve got here, and probably am not interested in trades. No scammers, I know all the tricks in the book. I’m not very negotiable on my price, either, so no low-ballers. Go buy a gasser if you want to buy one of these trucks for $1500, and get lost. You can get 16mpg, or you can get 35mpg. That’s the price you pay for a diesel. Don’t insult me. Thanks for looking.
