For Sale : Van 4x4 Mitsubishi Delica L400 Space Gear _ in Colombia/Ecuador _ March/April 2019 _ Canadian registered _ US$ 7000

Hi all,

We are a French couple currently traveling in our Space Ship Delica from Ushuaia to Colombia.
We bought the van in January 2018 in Chile from fellow travellers.
We will be selling our great van from March, between Ecuador and Medellin, Colombia.

VEHICULE DESCRIPTION
- Mitsubishi Delica Spacegear (also known as L400)
- Basic camper conversion with plenty of storage space under the bed without compromising living space. L-Shaped for rainy days. No electrics, toilets or shower.
- 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 on asphalte _ up to 15l on dirt roads (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.
- 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.

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. Was not really a con for us.

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