Here is a remarkably rust-free, solid Fourtrak. Having covered just 103,000 miles (thats less than 5k per year!) and with 12 months MOT, this is surely one of the most honest Fourtraks available right now! As this is the LTD edition TDX version this truck enjoys a pop-top sun roof, grab rail dash, different door cards and a full two-tone metallic paint scheme. Huge amount of service history (including vast amounts of old MOTs and tax discs back to 1998!). Some areas worthy of note: Brand new brake master cylinder within the last 15,000 miles Brand new alternator & belt within the last 10,000 miles Full gearbox rebuild with all new bearings and a brand new clutch kit (totalling over £1600) within the last 13,000 miles Brand new heavy duty battery just fitted Everything works! That may sound like a simple statement to make but finding a Fourtrak where all the lights & electronics work is nearly impossible. And yes, the rear windscreen wiper and washer are totally functional (unheard of!!!!) - and yes, the aerial is complete! If you are after a rough Fourtrak to use for work / off roading this is probably not going to be for you however if you are looking for a well looked after, clean, straight truck that can be used everyday then please read on! This beautiful example of Daihatsu’s legendary Fourtrak truly showcases all that is brilliant about these much sought after small (but mighty) trucks. if you are familiar with Fourtraks then you will already be aware of why these vehicles are loved by so many; If you are not then please allow me to bring you up to speed. The Daihatsu Fourtrak is renowned for being a really tough, solidly built compact 4x4. Don’t be put off by the word ‘compact’ - these trucks can legally tow 3.5 tonnes (although physically capable of much more) and boast 7 seats & a very powerful 2.8 litre turbo Diesel engine. The beauty of all this might in a reliable/ tough/ compact package is that the truck can be used every day for any job - towing, on the farm, on the motorway, in towns & tight car parks…you name it, a Fourtrak can deal with it! If you want one of these awesome pieces of kit (and why wouldn’t you?!) you may have been searching for a Fourtrak for a while and come across a lot of rough, abused, rotten examples (these trucks are of course often worked hard for a living)…This is not one of them! Just take a look at the pictures of this truck and you will surely see that this is a very straight, un-abused example of Daihatsu’s legendary Fourtrak. Inside is a similar story; usually you might find the seats and especially the carpets worn through or engrained with mud & grime - not so here! sitting in this truck is like going back in time to 1995 (the originally equipped tape deck / radio still presides along with the Daihatsu jack & wrench!) The truck starts immediately every time without hesitation or smoking (I have just fitted a brand new heavy duty battery) - Exactly what you would want from a Fourtrak. The driving experience is exactly as you would expect - the ride is superb for a 4x4, the engines pulls strongly & consistently with no rattles, spluttering or smoke. The gearbox works perfectly throughout with no whines, crunches or other undue noises. All of the ranges work as they should (2WD high, 4WD high & 4WD low). The clutch is in fine shape with absolutely no slip or lack of willingness - This is a phenomenal tow vehicle. Naturally it goes without saying that there is also a sturdy tow bar fitted (complete with electric socket and also a specialist winch plug - in case you use a trailer with a winch) so she is ready to tow and work. These Fourtraks are known to suffer from rust and as such most have either been condemned or welded at some point. This truck has required very little welding over the years and is in remarkable shape! Comes with 12 months MOT This uniquely beautiful example of a very desirable truck would make a lovely companion to anyone who wants a clean everyday vehicle but also wants to combine that with an extremely capable & tough truck. These trucks are becoming very sought after and examples as problem free as this are incredibly rare. Of course it must be said that this is a 21 year old vehicle and as such there is the odd small mark / imperfection around it. The only fault that must be mentioned is that both the driver’s and passenger door have lacquer peel, along with some poor paint work around the rear door handle. These issues are of course purely aesthetic and do not affect the performance of this phenomenal little truck. I truly believe that you will struggle to find a cleaner, straighter, more honest example.
