2002 Mitsubishi Delica Space Gear V6 Auto


  • 3.0L V6 Engine 
  • Capable four-wheel-drive

 Introduced in 1969 Mitsubishi’s Delica is a versatile, practical minivan and people mover sold in numerous markets around the globe with the most prevailing being in Japan and Asia. Available in rear and all-wheel driver variants with an array of engines, the practical MPV has been a familiar and popular option for larger families thanks to its spacious layout and 7-seat set-up. 

Equipped with an impressive 3.0L V6 and capable four-wheel drive system, this 2002 Japanese import has been customised to be increasingly capable with the addition of several over-land, safari-style accessories such as large all-terrain tyres, roof rack, spotlights and snorkel. 

Presented in an honest and used condition, this Delica would make a fun adventure wagon, making those trips to the beach or those camping trips extra special and all the more accomplishable.

 A robust, expedition-ready van that can transport the whole family down roads, across river beds and up mountains. It's got the looks and capabilities, with a powerful V6 and four-wheel drive with high and low ratios and a differential lock, there are very few MPVs that can boast the same. There's a bit of wear present, but this van was built to be used and therefore a perfect runaround that you won’t mind tucking into a hedge or getting sand in!

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
