Yes, you read the headline correctly. This is a 1991 Mitsubishi Jeep J53. It\'s part of a cool history that many Jeep fans are aware of but few have ever seen. And because you have turbodiesel power, a lifted 4x4 suspension, and plenty of off-road accessories, this one can tell its unique story while also taking part in a Jeep Jamboree.

Starting in the early 1950s, Mitsubishi was permitted by Jeep management to have its own local production of the popular and useful CJ3. It proved to be so good for them that it stayed in production for decades - even outlasting the full CJ line in the USA. That\'s how you can get a 1991 4x4 with a 1950s face. But this unique Japanese Jeep isn\'t about being a static time capsule. This one signals it\'s ready for modern duty with that Warn RT40 winch up front. The sides show off the lifted stance and 17-inch Fuel wheels. We like the look of the black paint where it\'s clean enough to show off the well-done classic sheet metal, but it never gets too fancy to keep you from leaving the pavement at a moment\'s notice. And speaking of off-roading, the hint of red serves a nice purpose. It may look stylish surrounding the headlights and outlining the Jeep stampings, but it also makes it quite easy to find the tow hooks and fender edges when it matters most.

Since this one is open to the world, they made sure to keep the theme of black with red accents going. This has a proper rugged attitude with a proper roll bar, a bikini top, a fire extinguisher, a rear cargo net, and a full-size spare in the rear (while still leaving space underneath for cargo/tools.) It\'s from Japan, and so you have right-hand drive and a speedometer in kilometers. There are also some cool ways they did upgrades. For example, you still have the small fabric strap door that was the original solution for keeping occupants inside, but now you also have the convenience of proper shoulder seatbelts. And we love that the classic Mitsubishi stereo is still in the center of the dash. But your real music comes from an AM/FM/CD stereo in the glovebox, and it gives you everything from a USB hookup to modern speakers mounted in the rack. Plus, the sale comes with some nice extras that let you choose just how you want to present this Jeep. A full soft top, proper doors, a Corbeau back seat, and more are all part of this package.

One great thing about a design that has been around for decades is progress. So while the original CJ3 and later J53 both had four-cylinder motors, that\'s where the comparison ends. This is a turbodiesel powerhouse, which means you get the kind of serious torque that makes this an awesome go-anywhere 4x4. It\'s also a terrific off-roader thanks to a lifted stance, Rancho shocks, Kumho RoadVenture tires, and an investment in newer locking differentials (front and rear.) As capable as this is, there\'s also a touch of an in-town cruiser feel. The diesel fires up with an eagerness of a reliable runner, the four-speed gives you good control, there are power brakes, and the heater is nice for early cars & coffee mornings.

The sale comes complete with receipts, booklets, and handy spare components. This is the kind of Jeep that\'s ideal for someone that wants to be both robust and distinctive. And you know that needs to be you. Call today!!!
