For Sale: 1995 Geo Tracker 2 door, hard top, 4 Cylinder, automatic, 4×4 with manual locking hubs.
So here’s the story. I wasn’t in the market for another truck, but with little to do one day, I got sidetracked. Out of curiosity I wanted to see what SideTracks were available within 750 miles of Port Orange, Florida, and as usual there is NOT MUCH! However, there was a red tin top Tracker with 138,500 miles on it and it was a little rough, having needed a few recent repairs, and then there was this beautiful, low mile, barn find, blue gem here. YUP, I GOT SIDETRACKED!
Oh, did I mention the miles on this blue 1995 Geo Tracker 2 Door Tin Top yet? 12,600 miles on this Tracker, baby (CLICK FOR MILES UPDATE)! That’s right, you saw it correctly. Yes, it’s a 6 digit odometer, and yes it is ALL original. WOOT! Had to have it.
I flew to BNA (Nashville International Airport) and was picked up there by a nice elderly gentleman with whom I’d had a few conversations already. I should mention here that the flight to Charlotte and the connecting flight to Nashville were both almost empty due to Coronapocalypse. COVID-19 cannot stop a 1995 Geo Tracker 2 Door Tin Top though. This transaction had to happen immediately because someone else would have bought it. I did not hesitate. You cannot hesitate with these li’l trucks when you see ’em. Snooze ‘n’ Lose. Especially a rarity like a tin top, and more especially one that only has less than 13,000 miles on it.
I have to try to explain how flabbergasted I am with this barn find. Looking inside the engine compartment and inside the truck itself, is a glimpse back in time. This is how you’d have seen it brand new on the Chevrolet car lot in your home town back in 1995. OMFG I can’t explain the thrill. This is an engine with no grease and oil thrown about. It purrs effortlessly, and goes kinda peppy for one of these li’l thangs. Pardon the faded color in this photo that was provided by the owner from whom I bought the truck. Lighting was bad I guess.
Interior Still New in Low Miles 1995 Geo Tracker 2 Door Tin Top
Now I’m going to start with the inside of this amazing Like New 95 Geo Tracker 2 Door Tin Top. I mean, words cannot describe it, so I’m providing a lot of photos down below here. I’ve had two brand new right off the lot Trackers before, and this is exactly what I felt like back then. WOW. BEAUTIFUL, clean and looking like it’s ready for some dirty fun. Yet, I don’t ever want to soil it. This is a MUSEUM PIECE. I wanna hug it. There is a bit of a smell inside and I’ll get to that now. When I picked it up I was sad to hear that its AC “does work” but currently won’t blow any air even with just the fan on because, well, there’s a rat nest in there. This is the second Tracker I’ve purchased out of a barn, and with a resident (but dead) rat. One hour of cleaning out the passage ways and she blows REALLY cold air. Wow. It was full of stinky pink fiberglass insulation!
Do you even know what the new seats felt like in a Suzuki Sidekick or Geo Tracker? As in, not worn out and flat, or not sitting on the metal seat frame rails like all the other SideTracks on the market with worn out seat cushions. GAWD, it’s comfortable to sit on these new seats. You sit a lot taller on fully padded, new seats though. Good thing the roof is so high on these trucks. Still tons of head room here and I’m 6’2″. Speakin’ of headroom, look at the headliner in the interior photo gallery below.
No rusty seat bolts! Fully stuffed seats with no blemishes! Can you tell I f’ing LOVE this gorgeous 1995 Geo Tracker 2 Door Tin Top? It’s so new inside! That carpet! WHAT?!

Exterior of 1995 Geo Tracker 2 Door Tin Top Barn Find
So the exterior didn’t fair as well as the interior. I mean, it was stored for how many years in a barn? So stuff gets piled around barn find vehicles and stuff happens. This one has a dent in the passenger front fender so slight I didn’t notice it until I got it back to Florida. I’ll show the photo of that side large here so hopefully you’ll see it. It’s immediately in front of the last letter of the word Tracker.

UPDATES May 2020
Well, a 12,000 mile vehicle from 1995, mostly sitting in a barn for 25 years with bad gas in it, followed by 1000 mile drive equals rust particles from gas tank clogging fuel system. Solution:
replacement. New gas tank, new fuel pump, new fuel filter, cleaned fuel line, new injectors. Added new plugs and wires for good measure. Runs like a top.
Removed “Tracker” decals from doors & “fish” from tailgate.
Brought Paint Back to NEAR NEW!
How Does a Like-New Geo Tracker Handle?
Read about its maiden voyage here. I took it across the country to prove it’s just like a new car.
1995 Geo Tracker 2 Door Tin Top For Sale
All this beauty and nostalgia can be yours because I’ll sell my baby for the right price. And by “right price” I mean near double the original sticker price folks.
The jack under the seat is unmarked, never removed from its perch. Tires only have 1000 miles on them, and the spare is untouched, locked in place on the tailgate. Exterior is somewhat faded as expected on a ANTIQUE COLLECTOR CAR, but interior is like new. These are highly sought collectors and I’m not messing around. I went to a lot of work and expense to get it, and I’d rather not sell it. It’ll be going to car shows. Maybe a museum will pick it up. Depends how fast YOU are!
UPDATE Oct. 15, 2020
New, in-dash, double din Kenwood DNS576S audio with Bluetooth and all the bells and whistles, including GPS navigation system.
See the MILEAGE UPDATE here in the cross country story, proving that it’s a like new Geo Tracker that runs like new and feels like new.
UPDATE Jan. 3, 2023
The actual original mileage on Blue Bomb here is now 25,923 and climbing VERY slowly as I bring it out of storage to run it once in a while.
Here is how a Geo Tracker tin top would look with 29’s.
Then I decided to go for it, because I had these muddies on my 97 Tracker without a lift and it worked fine under moderate wheeling. Full crank or full flex will be a problem without a lift though, and I don’t plan to go wheeling with this baby, nor do I want to alter an original condition collector Tracker.
