The flared design is the same as what is being sold as the SFX here in India.


Thanks & could not agree with you more !

Cheers
Congratz Ricky.

Are you planning to take her out for xtreem offroading?

I can vouch for the Mitsubishi Pajero build quality well! as I own a 25year old Mini Pajero. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ve...swb-suv-2.html (1988 Mitsubishi Pajero SWB SUV)

Once again Congratz and please continue to share your experience with us.

Thank you very much !! I have always liked the Pajero, the angular lines have a timeless appeal.

As for extreme off roading - I think not, my slipped disc would keep my away from any such adventure. Maybe off roading for the heck of it, but nothing serious I'm afraid.

Hi, ya I did see someone asked me the price I paid. I am not too comfortable sharing that detail on an open forum.

Attractive price..well !! That is relative !

Cool Pajero Pics

So here are some more pictures, daytime. Will give you some idea of the vehicle.

Here goes..the bodyline seems fairly clean, the engine bay looks like it has seen regular services, the interiors look clean the mats however need immediate replacement.

Enjoy !!

Thanks for more snaps Ricky. Engine bay and Interiors give us a clear picture how she was maintained. Still virgin at this age.

Congrats Ricky! Thats a beautiful Paj you picked up. Always been one of my favourite vehicles over the years. I absolutely love the version with the two tone paint treatment as shown below:

I totally detest the Indian Pajeros which have the working tail light on the rear bumper, and duds in place of the actual tail lamps. Whoever even thought of such an arrangement?!

Thanks, yes it has been my favourite for a long long time, never did find a clean & unabused example before now.

I agree with you POV on the tail light & I personally never liked the rear quarter panel in white on the Indian version. BTW loved the alloys on the Pajero that you posted.

I am looking at changing the steering wheel, it is slippery due to high useage. Any pointers on an after market option - anyone ??






Cheers

Congrats on the buy Ricky. The car seems to be very well maintained and well cared for. These imported ones seem to be much better in quality and are more feature equipped than the Indian ones (especially the altimeter and compass).

The only thing the car needs is a good wash and polish. Possible with off-roading

Hmm somehow I knew that was going to be your answer for not letting the price out specially the last sentence. Somehow I find this to be a common answer many have given in the past either because they may put it up for sale at some point and or deal/part of the auto trade.

Anyway thought we are a community meant to share info/intelligence and bring transparency and not for profit. This is atleast my expectation as is the culture and principles of camaraderie followed on most similar forums local/international, but we in India are always different

Thanks, unfortunately the car cleaner did not come the day I shot the pics :-( otherwise it is fairly shiny !! If you see the pics at the beginning, you will see it much cleaner.

Kind Sir just to put it on record - I am NOT part of the "auto trade", simply have a passion for cars - period.

As for sharing or not sharing prices paid for any car - I think it should be the onus of the owner, disclosing it or not disclosing it.

Hope you understand my POV




Cheers

Congo on a classic, Ricky! This truck is tough as nails...mechanically over-engineered, no electronics and robust construction. I've driven a 20 year old Pajero that had over 3,00,000 kms on the highway and she still rode decently well.

Drive safe, will ya!
