It's Monday. Monday sucks. We all know this. However, we've taken it upon us to play the devil on your shoulder and convince you to quit your job and start traveling the word. Surprisingly, with the lure of wearing ties, and 401K's, it's actually quite difficult to get someone to do that these days. Luckily right now on the Expedition Portal Classifieds, there's a way to make it even easier. Forum member Juris has listed a 1988 Mitsubishi L300, or better known as the Delica, and conveniently it's already located in South America so you can just fly in and start your adventure from the moment you land. The vehicle looks surprisingly well outfitted and in good shape for it's age. According to Juris, it's perfect for traveling with a partner, but not much more.
Here's what the seller had to say about the vehicle:
as we are slightly finishing our expedition, we are looking for a new owner of our expedition vehicle. It is a left-hand drive Mitsubishi L300 (also called Delica) 4WD with pop-up roof. Built in 1988 so with no electronics, all-mechanical very durable car. Until now we did not have any serious technical problem with the car. 4WD + gear reduction took us through all bad roads. It is a Japan car so you can find plenty of spare parts anywhere in South America.
It is a van so do not expect too much space, but the interior is very smartly designed with focus to details. The vehicle is confortable for two people to live and travel for a long time. Good point is that in that car you do not look like a rich gringo and you are not in the center of (thief) attraction (most people think that we are local shared taxi "colectivo" and waving to us:-).
We are planning to travel until November 2012 and we would like to finish our journey in Central America, so we prefer to sell it there, but all is flexible.
