The original Jurassic Park was unlike anything we’d ever seen before, blending action with science with gore. Nerds loved the dinosaurs, action buffs loved watching the humans battle for their lives, and some of us car people, well, we certainly remember the special Jeeps and Ford Explorers used in the park. With the 4th installment of the franchise, Jurassic World, just around the corner, now is the perfect time to buy both of these Jurassic Park replicas listed on Craigslist…
At $20,000 for the pair (or $10k each), they’re not exactly cheap for 2 mid-90s SUVs each with 100,000+ miles, but the owners have done a lot of work to the vehicles to keep them in great shape. Plus, it’d cost you a pretty penny if you were trying to take some crappy $2,000 Explorer and make it look like one from Jurassic Park, and you get to take all sorts of corny pictures now at places like Dinosaur Ridge!
The 1992 YJ Jeep Sahara Wrangler has a 4.0L I-6 engine paired with a 5-speed and, of course, 4x4. It also features green Sahara seats with door pouches, a nice Ramsey winch, and is rust-free. (oh, and the milage: 141,000)
If you buy the Jeep, don't forget... Objects in mirror are closer than they appear:
The 1994 Explorer started out as one of the fancy-pants Eddie Bauer editions so it has leather all-around, power seats/windows/locks, a 4.0L V6, A/C, and cruise control. They’ve also added a brush guard and powder-coated the rims. (Milage: 135,000) It, too, is rust-free, having spent its first 75,000 miles in wonderful Arizona.
So, go ahead, grab the Explorer and start the tour… What could go wrong?
