With the advancement of technology, whether it is a high-end sports car or an entry-level off-road vehicle, the electronic control system is getting higher and higher. So, if we go back to the original starting point at this time, let’s review what it feels like to be a classic car-level off-road vehicle Woolen cloth? Next, I will introduce 10 vintage off-road classic cars that are worth collecting.
Obviously, when it comes to classic off-road vehicles, the Jeep CJ has to bear the brunt. There are too many reasons to regard this car as so important, not only because of its powerful disassembly and installation capabilities, but also because of its great modification space. It can be said that it is almost impossible to see a complete original CJ now. As long as you own this car, you will definitely modify it. In addition, Jeep’s classic two-door shape is also chic enough.
Toyota Land Cruiser
The Toyota Land Cruiser is also a classic, very playable and as capable as CJ. The short-wheelbase FJ40 can be described as a classic among the classics, and is also sought after by collectors, and its price is getting higher and higher. The better ones start at least $40,000, and even the dilapidated ones start at least $5,000. In addition, for those larger Cruisers, such as 60, 70 and 80, although they are not as popular as FJ40, they are becoming less and less.
Speaking of the Ford Mustang, the exit of the 1990s can be said to have made Ford loyalists sad for a while, and it is precisely this way that the Ford Mustang models from 1966 to 1977 are precious collections. Today, the price of the original Ford Mustang is between 10,000-15,000 US dollars, and the modified version needs to increase or decrease according to the degree of modification. The models from 1978 to 1996 were comparable to the Chevrolet Trailblazers at that time by virtue of their powerful power and compact appearance.
Speaking of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, it is the pioneer of four-wheel drive. With four-wheel drive system and other product advantages, Chevrolet Blazer quickly became the “leader” in the US SUV market, with cumulative sales of more than 3.4 million units. Parts for this little V8 beast, including the engine and drivetrain, are still available in abundance, which means collectors have more options and can buy them via eBay.
The XJ Cherokee is a classic car that is easy to forget, but you can only appreciate the advantages of this car after you have actually used it, and its market is very good now. In addition, there are many engines to choose from on the market, especially the 4.0L in-line 6-cylinder, which allows you to personally experience the push-back feeling brought by low-grade high-torque and the unimpeded pleasure of off-road driving. However, one thing to be reminded is that there is a rear-drive version of the Cherokee produced by Jeep, and those who want to buy four-wheel drive must look carefully.
When all SUVs are still improved from pickup truck chassis, Toyota 4Runner has been positioned as a real urban family SUV, and when his competitors are transforming into crossover SUVs, he still retains the Powerful off-road capabilities. However, the 4Runner produced in the 1990s is still in good condition on the market, and it is also a good choice for consumers with a small budget.
The Suzuki Black Samurai is the second generation of the Jimno. Although it was not accepted by most people due to its appearance when it was launched, it still occupies a large market by virtue of its light weight and convenience. In 1995, Suzuki Black Warrior withdrew from the US market, but it is still sold in other countries, so there are still many sources of goods on the market, whether they are original or modified.
Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen is the Germans’ best response to LandCruiser, and its characteristics needless to say. If you have enough budget, then this car will be your best choice, at least 20,000 US dollars in some gray markets, and 50,000 US dollars if you need better condition.
Around the 1960s, Scout II was definitely a responsible off-road vehicle, and it was definitely an antique car worthy of collection, but his accessories are really hard to find at present. It is also for this reason that the price is a little bit high compared with cars of the same level, and the average price is also around 5,000 US dollars.
First-generation Range Rover
A long time ago, the Land Rover Range Rover was originally designed to replace the Defender in the jungle, so it was also called the Beverly Hills Cruiser. If you really want to collect a first-generation Range Rover, it is best to buy it directly from the British, which can also greatly reduce the possibility of being cheated. In terms of price, since most people now think that the old Land Rover is unreliable, the price on the market is relatively low, ranging from 1,500 to 15,000 US dollars.
