The rugged two-door Pajero SUVs are not only rare and unique but capable of taking you almost anywhere! This 1993 is finished in a stunning Meteor Silver (A6XD,) the body is in good shape other than some minor dings and chips associated with normal use. Accentuated by rain guards, JAOS polished roof ladder, brush guard, and a set of wide Center Line's wrapped in new Falken rubber, the overall look is all business. Best of all this rugged rig is powered by Mitsubishis torquey 4D56 turbodiesel mated to a selective four-wheel-drive setup. With only 93K verified miles this short wheelbase truck makes for a dual-threat as a comfortable daily-driven overlander or off-road Allstar!
The interior of this Pajero is in wonderful shape, and surprisingly well equipped. For starters, getting in and out of the truck is easier than the four-door due to the door size and driver position. Whoever is at the helm has a commanding view of the road ahead. A gauge suite with a functional compass, altimeter, and thermometer sitting atop the dash, which is in wonderful nick. A dedicated dual-zone digital climate system works to deliver cold air conditing to the cabin on demand. If you prefer natural ventilation the power windows retract and the OEM rain guards keep wind noise to a minimum. A manual sunroof can tilt for additional cooling and rear privacy tint keeps away the harsh rays of the sun. The gray cloth seats are in above average shape, lacking major rips, stains, or tears. They are comfortable on long cruises and the rear row can fold all the way forward to maximize cargo capacity. The rear tailgate swings open with its side-mounted hinge and create a wide loading area for easy access. The headliner is in good shape, as are the door cards, and the carpets have been protected by the OEM mats which are included in the purchase. Even the original owner's manuals are still in the glove box and included in the sale!
The body on frame Pajero offers one spectacular driving experience, with its aforementioned modern interior, and its civil ride quality. Sure you'll get some light humming from the freshly installed oversized Falken Wilderness tires, but overall, it is good on long trips and reasonably comfortable. Powered by Mitusbishi legendary 4D56 four-cylinder, the little turbo diesel clatters to life with a twist of the key. Benefitting from a new 12V battery, engine air filter, and diesel-specific oil and filter service, she requires no major scheduled service for the next three thousand miles. Best of all, one of our trained technicians has performed a timing belt and water pump service, which is the most expensive maintenance item this vehicle requires. Power delivery is linear, and the power felt down low easily tops the 3.5L gas V6 offered in this chassis. The automatic transmission works properly, delivering gearchanges without any hesitation or clunking. Much more advanced than Toyota's system at the time, a selective transfer case can be operated on the fly, as the driver can toggle between two and four-wheel drive depending on what driving conditions are at hand. Mitsubishi was pushing for more advanced technology and equipped an advanced adjustable suspension on this example. The driver can toggle between the firm and soft settings to suit their preference. The wide tires will provide plenty of grip, regardless of the road conditions, and the brakes and steering work as they should.
