I finally saw a, what appears to be, 89-90ish pup at the shell station on market st. It looks local, so hopefully I see it again, and can get a photo, and maybe even talk to the owner, and let them know there's a home on the internet.

I was very excited to finally spot one out here in Leesburg!!

You have me curious. It was an “89-90ish” or maybe a P’up — one or the other. ;)

I was driving and didn't get a look at the front end. To be honest, I only really saw the tail gate and it had the Isuzu decal on the left side of the tail gate. My 84 has it embossed across the whole tail gate. Pictures I have seen with the smaller decal seemed to be later, but I'm far from being an expert in this area. None the less, I was glad to be amongst Isuzu power!

What's the cut off? When I search online for parts, it's all the Isuzu pick up, so I kind of assumed they were pups until around 93.
Apparently i am mistaken. Would love the facts though!

The P'up went from '81-'87. Isuzu replaced it with a mostly-new truck and called it "Pickup" in '88.

Online parts catalogs generally don't make a distinction between names, as they're all really "pickups".
