We're accustomed to seeing Land Rover's of questionable legal status in the United States—it's fairly easy for an individual to swap a few parts (or VIN tag's) and make a much newer truck appear older. This however is the first time we've seen it with a right hand drive Mitsubishi Shogun—with a diesel engine. The vehicle, known here as the Montero, was imported from the United Kingdom in 2005 as a "toy" for an affluent individual in Florida. Apparently it's even titled and registered there as well.Mitsubishi enthusiasts—is this vehicle shady, or is it legal? Tell us below in the comments.
Here's what the seller had to say about the vehicle:
Offered for sale is a stunning example of the third generation Mitsubishi Pajero (Montero in the US), a 2002 model with the ultra-desirable 3200 DI D V6 diesel engine and a 5-speed manual gearbox. This right-hand drive model was imported from the UK in 2005 as a toy for an affluent Florida resident, and has only 51K original miles. In every way, this stunning SUV shows very light usage and attentive care.
It is equipped with the Shogun and animal packages, addressing both luxury features and a beefed-up off-road suspension. The rich leather full power seats are in excellent shape all around, and are heated for passenger comfort. Amenities include automatic climate control (including rear controls), power windows, power central locking, power mirrors, and a premium CD audio system. The exterior has alloy rims with Pirelli Scorpion radials in great shape, running boards, roof rails, a full-sized spare, xenon headlamps, fog lamps, and more. It also has a towing package with a substantial receiver hitch.
The SUV is in excellent condition all around, with clean original paint, an immaculate interior, and all servicing up to date. There are no known issues with any feature on the car, either electrical or mechanical. The AC blows cold, the heat works well, and the clutch is in great shape with excellent feel. The four wheel drive system works properly, and the brakes are in great shape all around. This substantial truck is ready for whatever you want to throw at it.
For the best indication of this car's condition, please study the many available photos, and bid with the confidence that you'll know exactly what to expect when inspecting your purchase.
