Van 4x4 Mitsubishi Delica L400 Space Gear _ in Chile / Argentina / Peru _ December 2017 _ canadian registered _ US$ 7000 (negoti

Hi all,

We are a French/Japanese couple currently making a loop between Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and Peru in our Delica.

We bought the car last July in Chile from fellow travellers who came down from Canada.

We would like to sell the car at the end of December, anywhere between Chile, Argentina and Peru.

VEHICULE DESCRIPTION

- Mitsubishi Delica Spacegear (also known as L400)

- Converted as fully-equipped camper with high bed frame for plenty of storage space under it.

- 2.8l Intercooler Turbo-Diesel engine

- Automatic Gearbox (4 gears + OverDrive)

- 4x4 manual select box (3 modes for different traction conditions)

- Consumption per 100km: 10l~12l on asphalte _ 15l on dirt road (the reasonable size of the engine is a good compromise between power and economic fuel consumption). As Diesel is mostly around 30% cheaper than gasoline, it is cheaper travelling around with it.

- Green

- 1997

- Left hand drive

PROS

- High clearance (probably the most important feature for a true overland trip, even more than 4x4)

- Reliable. The Delicas are known to be very reliable and if something has to be repaired it is easy to find parts for it, as they have the same parts as the Mitsubishi Montero/Pajero, which are very common in Central and South America.

- 4x4 with manual select mode to adapt traction conditions (sand, mud, etc). This features normal (High) 4x4, High 4x4 with differential lock, and Low 4x4 with differential lock.

- The car has a narrow body so you can drive and park easily everywhere in town. Also very useful on narrow off-road tracks.

- Diesel engine : economic fuel consumption makes it a difference on long-term travel budget.

- Bed : after a month travelling with just a mattress put on the folded rear seats, we decided taking off the seats and built up a bed that we designed ourselves mainly to gain storage space and comfort. We don't regret this little upgrade a second !

- Blends in local car crowd perfectly. The Delica is a common car for SA 2nd hand vehicles import market. As a result the local people does not perceive the car as an overlander’s camper, making it less likely to be a potential target for robberies or anti-chilean grudge.

CONS

- It lacks convenience of a less compact van (no high roof to stand inside, no inside kitchen).

- Diesel engine needs more care at low temperatures and over 4000m.

- Aircon doesn't work but could be fixed. Not really a con for us as it is chilly enough in the Andes so we spared the money.

OVERALL

Good compromise between a camper van and 4x4 for a reasonable price.

DETAILS

- Registered in B.C. Canada. Almost no paperwork for transfer. I am the owner (not on poder). Easy process as it would be a sale of a foreign vehicle between foreigners (no RUT or notary act needed).

- 200,000km by time of sale

- Left Hand drive (no issue for border crossing!)

- Windows are Black tinted except for front and driver’s side. Nobody can guess you're sleeping inside.

- 2 front seats only (as the bed replaced all back seats)

- roof rack + roof box

- fog light

PRICE

IN OPTION

I am selling my Drone DJI phantom 2 + GoPro Hero 3 Black edition as it is a bit bulky to fly home with it.

The drone comes with a Zenmuse 3 axes gimbal, a FPV screen to control what the GoPro is filming, 2 batteries, the controller and a big black case to store everything.

As of today this option remains the cheapest and most versatile serious solution for drone videography as you can quickly unmount the GoPro for other use, instead of buying a drone with a built-in camera + a GoPro for your other videos (you spare the cost of camera).

Drone fully equipped + GP : USD 700 (negotiable)

Drone fully equipped only : USD 500 (negotiable)
