This low roof petrol short wheel base 2003 Mitsubishi Delica PD6W Chamonix 7-seater was inspected for a client at HAA Kobe auction on 23 January 2016.
Overall it was a good clean vehicle considering that Delicas are becoming quite difficult to find in well kept condition and a genuine grade 4 is a rare thing. It was a 7-seater with swiveling seats.
Other notes included:
Non smoker’s car
Free of major rust
Some minor paint and dent repair needed around the body

LHF fender had a 30cm long scratch which had been touched up, not too obvious and could remain as is
LHS front door had a coin-sized dent below the door handle, paintless dent removal should remove it

Rear hatch had some scratches where it had been opened up into something, some may buff out, not too deep
Rear bumper had a few scratches, most could be buffed out
RHR quarter panel, midway down the panel had a couple of small pin dents, paintless dent removal should also work on these

Driver’s seat showing some wear
Minor dirt on the seats and carpets
