Delica seat configuration

Post by YawoFamVan » Tue Jul 31, 2018 3:40 pm

Hi all,
Much thanks for the all the info on the site and consuming a ridiculous amount of my time!
We’re looking at importing a Delica but are having a tough time with the seat configurations. We need it to seat 3 with the potential to expand our family and seating to 4 in the future.
The camper layout we have seen and liked included the middle row two captains seats that you can slide forward and flip the seat up to increase space for the rear bed/camperization. The only issue is I’m having a hard time figuring out what models have the captains seat layout and not all auction sites show interior pictures.
1. Any idea what models have captains seats?
2. Do the newer >2000 Delica’s captains seats slide forward and collapse like the older ones?
3. Any other ideas for a 3-4 person camper set up?

We’re in Edmonton and would love to meet up and chat with any other local delica owners as we embark on deli ownership!
Alex

I have just started searching for my first Delica and am having the EXACT questions. So far it seems the only configuration with the captains chairs is the LWB and mostly with the Crystal roof. Both of which I do not want. I have so far only seen ONE LWB high roof, no Crystal. This one: https://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/pen ... 1373022554
pretty pricey though

I don't believe that's accurate. 2 weeks ago I drove a 1997 standard wheelbase, crystal light roof, with captains chairs I believe it was Chamox trim. Unfortunately, this van has sold or I would link it.

I have been looking for my van for a month now. I have seen both short wheelbase and long wheelbase delica's with captains chairs. But I have only seen captains chairs with the crystal light roof.

So we're importing ours and managed to figure out which ones have 7 seats. Knet109 I'm not sure if you're looking locally or overseas.
If you're looking at any of the auction sites in Japan, you need to search the chassi number, which will give you a description of options/features that includes if it's a 7 or 8 seater. A PD6W can come with captains chairs (Standard wheel base, with or without a high roof) as well as a PF6W (High roof, long wheelbase) both of those could potentially have a crystal lite roof.

Feel free to message me if you need any specifics about finding it on the auction sheets if that's what your end game is

Thank you! I am in BC and settled on a local Jasper only because it was a great price and it didn't seem like I was going to find the EXACT unit i had been looking for. It seems that just about ANY configuration you can dream of with these probably exists SOMEWHERE.
{EDIT} After doing some more searching, I think the captain's chairs are only available when the Crystal Lite roof is present...or possibly also with the sunroof option. I also tore up some of my rubber matting that is underneath the carpet underlay. There are no bosses in place to mount captain's chairs so a Deli that has the bench seat could only have captain's chair mounted after a fair bit of modifications underside. Back to the drawing board for camper mods, I guess.
