More Details & Pictures
1987 Montero with the 2.6 litre inline 4-cylinder G54b engine. Purchased by my late father in 1988 from the dealer in Longmont with 11,000 miles. It now has 176,xxx miles on it.
Engine work has included reworking the head, installing new timing chain. Now there knocking noise from the engine, more pronounced once it warms up, and I don’t have time to diagnose this. Maybe the crank/rods finally need some attention.
I believe that this 4-cyl block was used in a lot of Dodge products and other Mitsubishis, so parts are easily available including short blocks. Or drop in a V6 Mitsi, and make this like the ’89 two doors.
Ok, so it’s Labour Day and not Memorial Day. Memorial day will be here soon enough. Time to turn wrenches! A GREAT Project to fix up and have ready for Summer Four Wheeling. Or fun in the snow, which ever comes first!
Gearbox (5 speed), clutch and transfer case are in good working order. It has a new brake master cylinder and system bleed.
Interior is good, no rips, tears or exposed foam. There is one spot on a front seam on the driver’s seat where the calf of the clutch leg has worn the beading. Has the folding rear seat.
Good body. There is a dent in driver’s door and adjacent in the fender (see photo), but doesn’t affect door closing. There is rust below the rear door on the left side right above the tailpipe—see photo, and near the fuel fill door. Grill, etc looks good. All glass is good —no breakage or cracks.
All photos in the ad are current.
No time for it these days, so it should go to a home that will repair it and take it into the back country again. Lots of low end torque—I think it 4L it would climb trees.
These were also badged as Dodge Raiders in 1986 to 1989 when the two doors were sold.

This is sold as-is, where is due to needing some engine repair. Hence no emission cert. A great classic 4wd to have fun with!
Will consider reasonable offers.
