Two months ago he sold the souped-up 1981 Rabbit GTI that he had bee working on for a year. He spent much of the proceeds on a new project. It's a 1994 Mitsubishi Delica Spacegear 4x4 with a 2.8 liter intercooled diesel engine. Left-hand steering, three rows od seats, only 47,000 miles on it. No rust. It looks like this one:

That's what I was thinking, too. But, California plays by its own rules.

Looks like these vans were sold in Canada, so I bet that's where this one originated.

Great vehicle! Capable enough for most reasonable off-roading and beyond that. They have a big RoW following.

I believe you may have some difficulty registering that I CA, at least from the horror stories I hear from folks who have attempted to register imported diesel Rovers.

For reference, here is a long series of posts from Defender Source on the subject;
California Diesels

Good luck!

I saw one of these the other day - the first one ever. That name "Delica Space Gear" is memorable. If they were sold in Canada, there weren't many of them.

Those are interesting. Does dad have any worries of teenage son driving around in 25 year old safety technology? Probably better than the 81 Rabbit..

They import them to Canada from Japan on a regular basis. There’s a few specialty importers on the west coast. Yep, right hand steering and all.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.
