1993 Mitsubishi Delica Star Wagon

I'm usually not drawn to vans, but there is something oddly cool about this one.

This 4X4 van has a 2.5 liter turbodiesel in it. It would probably be all sorts of fun to take off road, as long as you didn't tip it over.

The big problem is, of course, you'd have to do your off-roading in Canada. Built in 1993, it's perfectly legal in Canada, but won't be legal in the US until 2018. (Arrgghhh...)

Located in Halifax, NS, Canada, click here to see the eBay listing.

There's one of those here in Seattle with Washington plates on it, Not quite sure how exactly they got away with it, but up in BC Canada you see these all over! Shows what might have been had Mitsubishi thought to actually sell these in North America

Yep, I saw a couple in Colorado too. Not sure how they did it either.

Mitsu did sell a 2wd gas version of this thing here on the east coast for a few years. All are now rustouts, thus making a ready source of US legal state vehicle titles.....Bring the rivet gun to Canada with the papers & tags...

I am currently in Okinawa Japan and these things are all over the place, look monstrous compared to all the small tiny kei cars.

@ Bill seems they're using the same method I've used for getting Ladas across the border. It's a Fiat!! Really it is!! Ok to be honest I did import ONE legally

About an hour north of Seattle I see one every week. Of course,they are from Vancouver. Right hand drive too.

I saw one in California. Let's just say it might have the same VIN as an L300.
