Drive safe, will ya!
THAT is the reason why I bought it. Mine is also running on 129K on the odometer with "stock" suspension !! Hope it goes for another...x kms !! Ya she still rides well.

The insurance surveyor who came in today to assess the vehicle was when he read on the RC that it is a 1998. That goes to say a lot of the vehicle.

Drive safe - yes I will Sire !!!

Looking at adding some Hella's on the front bumper. Something with a nice spread. Hella 1000's should do the trick.

The light spread of the stock lights is pretty bad, which I hope is correctable - though I have upgraded to 90/100's the light intensity has improved drastically, so I basically need to get the focus right. Right ?

But adding the Hella's as the main driving lights should sort out the problem.




Cheers

@Ricky_63: Adding hella's will sort out your problem but I am worried about the poor oncoming traffic.
Score: add 1 for GV?

Congrats Ricky. A really nice find.
This Pajero looks just like new Indian Version because of the beefed up body line, but is more easy on the eyes as its not with dual color paint (Thank God)

Any mods planned?

Sudev, I am not so cruel , if I add any additional lights they will be focused properly to ensure that they do not blind oncoming traffic. Have seen additional "well focused" Hellas & they are just fine.

As for the score card - ya sure add 1 for the GV !!!

Spot on, it is the model which they rebadged as the SFX here in India. Ya the flared arches do look nice. I agree with you on the paint job part totally !!

Mods ? No none for now, except for the lights I guess.

Ricky,

You got your self a wonderful engineered vehicle.

In fact even a 10 years old Pajero gives Run for money to the latest model SUV's in the market - even today.

What further comes to the mind is how much did you got the vehicle for?
If the price can be shared

Thanks & Regards

Hi Ricky
This indeed is a wonderful vehicle and the previous owner has maintained it very well.
Congrats
Hella 1k's will look nice but why not go in for hella 3000.
Great lights and the throw is amazing.

BTW even if you can't disclose the exact price, is it possible to share the apporx price range, this will give potential future buyers/ enthusiast who might want to purchase cruisers like this (read people like me ) an idea on how much moolah they might be needing!
Even if you do not wanna disclose, I respect your privacy!!!
Cheers

BTW - did I mention that is a single owner vehicle. That tells us why it is in good shape. Yes the previous owner was the CEO of an MNC who imported it for his personal use & the duty that he paid for it was $$$$$. But yes he did maintain it well. Considering that is still running stock suspension still, though ofcourse there are signs of it wearing off, but she still rides better than a lot of vehicles (SUV's) that I have driven.

I see that there is a lot of curiosity on the price. What I can share is that I got it at around the same price that I sold my VITARA


Cheers

Hi Ricky, Good buy, congrats. Really a neat vehicle. Tough to fine vehicles like these at your 'Atractive price'. May the fours be with you. In case you are planning to part with the stud, mail me I'll be more than willing to give your 'Atractive price' ;-)

Good looking car mate. suspension and most parts last a long time. Mine has done over 160K and still doing well, and the nice part is that the tires last a long time as well as the suspension geometry does not get bent out of shape easily.

@boeuff
Thanks, so your Pajero is going at 160K without a suspension job ?? That is certainly re-assuring.

Edit : Just saw your gallery Model year 1990 & still going strong !! Congrats, and that seems like a well looked after Pajero






Cheers

Got the lights focussed today, way better - now I can actually see the road with the nice spread of light.

Yesterday on the way & back from the airport I was doing a high"ish" 3 digit on the odo, the vehicle behaved very well, except beyond a certain point it begged for a 6th gear

Wifey found the ride planted too !! Now that is a first. Coz she had no idea that I was doing some NICE 3 digits on the odo

So overall impression so far has been very good.



Cheers
