This 1994 Daihatsu Mira with 57,239 km at USS Tokyo was inspected for a client in January 2020.
Eligible for import under the 25 Year Rule.
This model is becoming a fad in Japan as they are being fitted with a small kitchen and used in trendy areas to prepare and sell “food to go” like bento boxes. Due to this demand and rarity of the vehicles themselves, prices are rising.
At the time of auction, a good example with < 60,000 km would cost approx. $20,000 on road in Australia.
Auction grade 4 C. Repainted from white.
Auction report stated:
Colour changed from white
Scratches / dirt / dents / rust inside
Seat size not genuine ?
Front area modified
Aftermarket parts attached
Scratches / dents on the body
The overall condition was fine for age but under the rear seats it had a piece of plywood fitted which had been wet long term, resulting in rust to the surrounding frame.
As can be seen with this Mira, auction grade 4 is no guarantee that a vehicle will be in good condition – ALWAYS have an independent inspection done prior to purchase.
This vehicle passed in unsold, last bid at 695,000 Yen FOB equivalent, or approx. $14,600 complied, plus on road costs under the 25 Year Rule.
Prices are constantly changing as vehicles age and new models are released, so feel free to get in touch with us for a current market price on the specification you want.
We only source the best vehicles with clean and tidy interiors, and only vehicles we would be pleased to own ourselves. This is why we are constantly told by clients that the vehicles we source are well above the condition of most others on the local market.
The pictures are typical of the information we provide prior to auction for each vehicle of interest, with any faults shown so you can clearly see the condition before we discuss whether to bid, and your budget.
Whether you’re looking for a quirky Daihatsu Mira like this, or a completely different make or model, we can find it for you in nice condition and at the best possible price directly from the Japanese car auctions.
It is vital when sourcing your vehicle to use an agent that takes the time to physically check each vehicle and looks beyond the auction pictures and report to confirm condition. Some vehicles may have an unpleasant smoke or other odour, rust underneath, or other faults which are impossible to know without inspection.
