2000 Isuzu Vehicross
GREAT PROJECT, ONE OF 90 FIREFOX RED FOR 2000, LOW ENGINE MILES, HEAD TURNER!
HIGHLIGHTS: Wow! Hard to find next-to-last year Isuzu Vehicross! Running, driving, complete project great for restoration or off-road build! Striking custom purple metallic paint job and chrome Isuzu alloys!
BODY OVERVIEW: If you know Vehicrosses, you know they were seeing frequent offroad abuse straight off the Isuzu lot when they were new. This Vehicross isn't a show piece, but the body is in surprisingly good condition for the age and mileage. There are some dings and dents here and there, most notably on the hood, but this vehicle would be very receptive to a restoration with a little body work.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Repainted in the current purple metallic at some point in the past, you can see in the door jambs and under the hood that this was a very rare Firefox Red Mica vehicle originally. Just one of 90 produced for the US market in 2000! The current purple paint job appears to be an older respray, but has held up well and still has a good shine to it. The black plastics (including bumpers) are in fair condition, but are showing age and minor damage as expected of an Isuzu this vintage.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Just like the exterior, the interior is in reasonably good condition for an Isuzu from this era. There is a split seam in the driver's seat, and normal wear on other parts of the interior as would be expected. Overall, the interior is complete and would be a great starting point for a restoration, or perhaps it would be good to go as is for an offroad build.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The Isuzu 3.5 liter V6 was replaced in 2017 with a lower mileage, good used unit from a Trooper. This engine reportedly has 79,000 miles on it. This vehicle runs well, and has a surprisingly good amount of torque! Other than the engine, other major mechanical components appear to be original to this vehicle.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: This is a fun, quirky car painted in a funky, fun color that is sure to be a conversation starter!
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you're looking for a turn-key vehicle in need of no repairs, this is not the car for you.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This Vehicross runs and drives, but should be considered something of a project vehicle. The heat, air, horn, and radio are not currently operational. The Check Engine light is on at all times, though the vehicle seems to run fine. Both side windows will go up and down, but do so very poorly. Additionally, there are a handful of other minor mechanical fixes that should be addressed.
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Whether you want a somewhat rare example of an already rare vehicle to restore to factory spec, or a solid example of a Vehicross to turn into the ultimate offroad machine, this may be the car for you. If you're looking for a vehicle you can hop in and drive to Florida, this probably isn't it.
