L300 ICBC Write Off - Custom Modifications Need a Home

Postby dr_airtime » Sat Oct 07, 2017 12:22 pm

Got in an accident in Vancouver today and I'm 80% sure my L300 Chamonix will be a write off due to frame damage.

As a result I will have custom modifications looking for a good home for another Lower Mainland L300. #1, #2 and #3 will be taken out of van and not go to ICBC. #4 I would need the buyer to remove flooring as my neck sore from crash.

1) Just completed L400 seats-to-L300 conversion complete with two L400 seatbelts. I literally just finished this and it is ready to drop into an L300. Could be the only one in Canada! I have $700 into this between purchasing the seats, seatbelts and custom metal fabrication. Not in a rush to sell. Fold down bed solution.

2) Full L300 curtain solution including female end of button snaps build into vents and trunk backing.

#3) L300 front rubber floor mats cut exactly for an L300.

4) Custom plastic flooring that could be taken out and installed in any L300. Haven's seen anyone else with this sweet flooring solution!

Call if interested. Andre 604 8(three)7 [two]9(nine)5

L300 ICBC Write Off - Custom Modifications Need a Home

Update: apparently the value of L300s has risen substantially with US demand now that they are over 25 years old. B&M Auto Repaid (ICBC Accredited) seems to think they can probably fix my Van including the frame bending and floor folding. Figure ICBC will go for this as replacement cost somewhere around $10,000 (1991, 210k, GREAT condition, no body rust).

I'm seeing a few comparable L300 Chamonix's with 140-150k selling for over USD 12,000 in the US.

No one has responded but all these items on hold for now. We''ll see if my Van still rides....

Update: I'll know by next week if my Van is a write off. The Chamonix may get spruced up and keep rolling. We'll see what ICBC says.

If icbc claims she's not worth repairing, I might be interested in a few bits and pieces! Picked up a '91 L300 a couple weeks back and it has some little items that need tweaking ie: only one front wiper currently, front ball joint might be cracked, might be interested in a door liner or two for my front doors. You know, the usual oddities of a 26 year old japanese bus that's on to its 3rd owner in North America.

Therhscott - still negotiating. Looking more and more like a right off. There are some really nice things you could take before I send to ICBC. I couldn't take too much out but my custom rubber floor is one of a kind!

So my L300 is going to be a write off. Someone with an L300 locally (lower mainland) should really take my L400-in-L300 custom seat modification! See above.

It's in storage and the seats won't be going to the scrapper when ICBC takes my van away.

I'll be updgrading to an L400.

I've also got a really nice condition Class 1 towing hitch in which I have religiously painted to try to control rust. Thing to do here would be to meet at E&H Hitch in Burnaby to swap.

Everything else on van staying intact so a certain dealer can keep the Delica parts circle going. I've got a good condition engine, IP, transmission and new starter motor.
