1993 Pajero 2.8L TD
Available for: $14,995
Useful, unique, and unfazed by daily use and abuse this 1993 Pajero is a hell of an SUV. The sporty three-door body style is set off by a set of OEM rainguards, a factory brushguard with integrated amber fogs, a stylish rear spoiler, and refinished Enkei alloys. Aside from some light dings, chips, and scuffs associated with normal use, the paint is in fine shape and this recently serviced rig boasts a mere 138k verified and documented miles. Rocking a bunch of upgrades and a host of recent service work, this little truck would make for an ideal daily driver, weekend cruiser, or short-wheelbase trail conquistador.
The cabin is in wonderful nick and includes lots of useful equipment. The view of the road ahead is clear and commanding as this tall runabout sits far above traffic. The dashboard lacks any cracking or fading and houses a factory gauge suite that works as it should. The center stack includes working climate control and functional OEM audio. Power windows, mirrors, and electric door locks all work like a charm and make daily use more enjoyable. The seats are in good shape and lack any major rips, stains, or tears. There is some separation of the stitchwork on the backs of the rear seats, but that's fairly common on these models. The door cards, carpets, and headliners have resisted major abuse over the years and are in fair shape overall. The new owner would even receive the owner's manuals and maintenance booklets for originality's sake, and to protect your prized JDM investment!
The mechanicals are in above-average condition and loads of recent service work was just performed. The 4M40 diesel is fresh off an oil and filter service and starts up care of two new 12v batteries. It idles with confidence and a new fuel filter was just installed to keep unwanted contaminants out of the engine. Thermal management is handled by a new radiator and new coolant hoses. When blasting down the highway in the dog days of summer, the new owner can rest assured that this turbodiesel is staying cool. Linked to a selective transfercase the driver has the ability to select between 2WD and 4WD on the fly, at speeds of up to 62mph. Even a center locker can be utilized for the offroad crowd or if a beach trip is in order. The Pajero does decently cruising at interstate speeds and is peppy around town. The small exterior dimensions and light, power steering make this little runabout easy to park. The brakes feel confident slowing down this three-door and the 16" Enkei alloys are wrapped in new 31" Falken all-terrain rubber. The best part of this rig is the new Bilstein suspension. The yellow 4600 series shocks deliver a premium ride and can hold up to the rigors of daily use and abuse without breaking a sweat!
