In the world of quirky off-roaders, the Isuzu Vehicross stands out. It's a weird two-door SUV sold in the late '90s with concept car looks and serious amounts of plastic body panels. It turns out there's an even weirder version of the Vehicross not many people know about: The Ironman edition.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
Isuzu aimed to sell around 1000 examples of the Ironman edition Vehicross to send off the model in 2001, but the actual number built varies depending on who you ask. Upgrades from the normal car included remote reservoir shocks, a black hood decal, a roof rack, an upgraded stereo system, and a unique two-tone red and black interior. Like every Vehicross, the Ironman edition got a 3.5-liter V6 mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.
This example just popped up for sale on Craigslist, and it looks seriously cool. It features a bunch of tasteful mods, including a two-inch body lift and one-inch suspension lift, fat off-road tires, a winch, manual locking front hubs, a limited-slip rear differential, a cold air intake, an aftermarket exhaust, an Alpine head unit with upgraded speakers, and a bunch of LED lighting.
With an asking price of $13,500, it's not crazy expensive either. Find it .
