No, not all samurais are 4wd. The silver wheels are 2wd style wheels, plus it doesn't have 4wd hubs on the front (it would have either auto hubs or manual hubs, if it was 4wd).
Learn something new every day!

I like how it's got one white 4WD wheel on the front driver side. haha
Seriously though, for $450 and it runs. THAT'S A STEAL!

They aren't ALL 4WD? How can you tell it's a 2WD?

2wd. But it is pretty simple to convert it to 4wd...front axle, driveshaft, transfer case.

That's a killer 'unicorn' type find. There just isn't too many of them around.

What I think...hmmm...honestly?  Kind of hate you a little bit right now!!!  That was an unbelievable find senor!  Are there any obvious issues right off that you have to address?  What are your plans for the rig?  Good luck and great score!

Hey guys, I’ve always had car projects in the past and have always liked the Suzuki samurai. When my gf talked to me about buying a Jeep I talked her out of that and our hunt for a samurai started. Didn’t find much locally and literally one day while driving To a friends house I saw a bone stock 1991 samurai sitting in a abandoned field on a trailer with a for sale sign. 450$ the way you see it. Towed it home and with a new batterie and new fuel fired right up ! Let me know what you guys think
