Mystery Suzuki - The Suzuki LJ-20
The Watson Family sends in this little "gem" but needed help identifying the model.  All you Suzuki Fans out there have been sending in guesses while the Watson family has been fixin' up this little toy for
fun around the farm. The Watsons then fixed up 

The Watson Family has cleaned up and painted this fun, little LJ20 in patriotic colors.

Here's what the Watson Family says about their LJ20 project:

I bought the rough LJ20 from a man who bought it at a farm auction near Bay City, Michigan. That's all the previous history I have. It wouldn't run so we towed it home. The aftermarket electric fuel pump had failed. a vacuum powered snowmobile pump was installed and she ran. If you look close at the before picture, there is a 6 gallon plastic boat motor fuel tank in the back. The original fuel line had to be replaced and the fuel tank patched.

The only functioning brake was the emergency brake. A master cylinder kit, relined rear shoes and some TLC to get rear wheel cylinders freed-up, and I now have some stopping power. One of the front wheel cylinders has been stripped out (SAE vs metric buggery) so rear stopping is all for now. The cheap, broken plastic seats were replaced with institutional grade plastic (used school cafeteria) seats, padded and vinyl covered. The vinyl top with snaps and clear plastic window were whipped up on our home sewing machine. After using fiberglass to patch a few holes in the flooring, I used blue 'grass' carpeting to cover the floor.

Some of the body has been replaced. A previous owner must have been a duct work fabricator because the body is made from galvanized steel. He had access to some proper tin working tools and did a very good job. The windshield frame is gone and I installed a lexon windshield. A manually operated windshield wiper (from JC Whitney) was installed. The grill is made from plywood and the head light bezels from cherry wood turned on my lathe.

I can't find any VIN on the vehicle. Only an engine ID and the 349cc displacement stamped into the motor.

The patriotic paint scheme is just 'because I could'. I hope to get a policeman to inspect it and be able to license it and legally drive it down the road this summer.

 - The Watson Family
