“Engineered to Conquer the Great Divide” – Mazda B2600i period magazine ad headline
The advertising copy went on: “Think of it as a brute with feelings. Like most 4x4 trucks, the Mazda B2600i is built to play rough. First off, it can handle nearly any off-road condition from desert sands to rugged mountain tracks. And since it's equipped with a 2.6-liter engine, the most powerful Four in its class, it doesn't just drive off-road, it conquers it. But what really sets the B26000i apart is how it feels to drive. Developed with Kansei engineering, it has been created to give you a driving experience you won't expect from a 4x4. A feeling of comfort, confidence, and control. In fact, it's so comfortable you may forget how tough it is. But make no mistake, this truck is designed for toughness. And designed well, for it allows you to get into 4-wheel drive with the shift of a lever. And just as important, it allows you to return to civilization just as easily. Test drive a B2600i. It'll feel out of this world. And odds are, it could take you there.”
Offered here is a very well-maintained 1990 Mazda B2600i pickup in dark blue over tan. In spite of the advertising copy, this truck's excellent overall condition strongly suggests it has rarely seen the “desert sands or rugged mountain trails.” Showing 251,983 total miles, it actually qualifies as a low-mileage vehicle by the Carfax 15,000-mile-per-year standard. This all-original, California-owned (and only recently brought to Michigan, so it has never seen snow) Mazda's annual average mileage is below 8,200 miles per-year. More important, the truck is rust-free and shows every evidence of having been the beneficiary of regular, comprehensive maintenance and owner care.
The exterior dark-blue paint is in amazing condition for its age: excellent, even gloss across the entire truck, with the exception of the hood which has suffered superficial storm damage. All other sheet metal is free of dents, dings, or other damage. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) The cargo bed and sides are fully protected with a custom Pendaliner® black insert (which also shows little sign of use). Both the black front bumper and chrome rear bumper are undamaged. The truck's elevated stance is factory-correct due to the 4-wheel-drive system. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear and undamaged. All factory badging is in place. Stock 15-inch, silver-painted steel wheels in excellent condition (with Mazda-branded center caps) are mounted with Big Foot® Big O A/T LT205/75 all-terrain tires.
Inside, the tan interior shows well with expected signs of light wear from age and use. Tan vinyl-covered door panels are free of damage; the tan dashboard wears a carpet cover for protection. The stock steering wheel shows light wear from use. The tweed-finish tan upholstery is in very good condition with only light indications of wear on the driver's side. Brown cabin carpeting is in good condition under matching carpet mats. Instrument lenses are clear and control surfaces in good condition. The shift lever for the 5-speed manual transmission and the transfer-case selector lever are floor-mounted side-by-side. A premium Toshiba® audio head unit replaces the stock radio.
Under the hood, the 2.6-liter, 12-valve, 4-cylinder engine commands a stock engine bay that has been properly detailed. (The engine recently received a new head gasket.) No modifications are evident, and all components, hoses, and wiring are correctly in place. Viewed from below, the chassis is complete, straight, and undamaged. Original protective plates remain mounted. Light surface rust is evident on some untreated metal.
The truck's original build and identification tags remain mounted. The sale includes the original owner's manual and a copy of the Haynes repair manual for the truck.
