Mitsubishi Delica Chamonix

Mitsubishi Delica Chamonix

This is Mitsi,she is a 4WD minibus,she has a high/low ratio transfer box and a good ground clearance which makes her ideal for use in the Falkland Islands as most "roads" are gravel/compacted earth.
Her 2 rows of rear seats fold flat to make a bed and she has fittings for curtains allround so I am slowly turning her into a camper for weekends away.
Running costs are reasonable.Fuel costs 33p/litre.Road tax is now 102/year.Insurance (fire/theft/third party)is 91/year.
I get 26 to 27 mpg as the speed limit is 40mph.She has 235,000kms on the clock on a 2.5 litre turbo diesel but doesn't use any oil between changes.Not bad for her age which papers say is 1994,imported here 2000, but according to the Mitsubishi website she is late 1989.

Mitsubishi Delica Chamonix

As can be seen she needs a bit of TLC,some paintwork to be done and the 2 driving lamps need replacing (a normal hazard on these roads).The windscreen is also cracked but as there is no MOT down here, and if you fitted a new one it would surely get cracked first time out, you wait till it falls out.I have had her since February 2008 and it hasn't moved yet.

Mitsubishi Delica Chamonix

Have fitted a new Radio/CD/MP3/ATRAC3 player after rebuilding part of the dash as previous owner had tried to remove it without undoing any of the screws!! Its amazing what you can do with UPVC cement!!.Also rewired it as he had wired all speakers together giving no balance or fade!!
Now have 4 X 50 watt all around sound.Pity we only have 2 radio stations down here,but can put an ATRAC3 CD with 17 albums on it and hit random shuffle and I am very unlikely to hear the same track twice and I have no idea of the playlist.

Mitsubishi Delica Chamonix

She has a double battery system,which is primarily for starting but gives a good capacity for lights etc on a night.Not only does she have a rear interior light there is also 2 reading spots as well.
I have obtained a small gas stove and a couple of mess tins and a few other items,washing up bowl etc and have a sleeping bag.Looking to build some small furniture to house the stove and a cupboard for the food.Got some thermal curtains made up last time I was in UK to keep the light out and the heat in and I will get them fitted soon.
Also has a solar battery charger fitted to keep the batteries up when not in use.
