Mitsubishi first released the Pajero as a capable and rugged off-roader, one that cocoons its occupants in comfort. Compared to its competitors the Pajero was a lot less expensive and known for its reliability. From its beginning the Pajero had a pretty simple recipe; 4WD, affordable, and easy to maintain. Along with 4WD, the Pajero also sports a low and high range manual gearbox for even more off road capability.
This Pajero has only had one previous owner for the most of its life. He reportedly bought it new in Dubai in 1989 and clocked the majority of its miles. The current owner reports the vehicle was stored for a couple of years. It was then freshened up before being sold to the current owner last year. Currently the vehicle is only driven from time to time. Overall, this is a unique example of a local classic off-roader that has survived many many miles and will continue to do so.
