1983 Suzuki SJ410 SJ 1.0 petrol from Australia and New Zealand


An outstanding adventure vehicle


Seats had worn out by the time I purchased the vehicle.

A few rust spots underneath the body due to previous owner's neglect.

Seals in the engine also wear out and begin to leak oil every 6 months or so, but its not expensive to sort out if serviced regularly.

General Comments:

A great project car to make your own modifications to at low costs.

I fitted a winch and new bull-bar, converted the doors to be quick-removable, mounted a spare tyre on the bonnet and a jerry can on the back tail gate and had a custom roof-rack made by a friend.

Even with a 4-speed manual transmission and 1.0L engine, it is a go-anywhere machine that is totally reliable and very capable.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
