Oldest and highest mileage bus?

Postby konadog » Fri Nov 26, 2010 8:24 pm

Just wondering who has the oldest and the highest mileage bus or pajero?
Not me at 1992 and a mere 120-something-thousand on the clock.
Anyone think they have a contender in the driveway?

I don't remember if it was the Russian or Oz site but one L300 had over 700,000 km on it

I seem to remember one SE Asian poster who was looking for a replacement engine because just about everything was worn out, the engine was using a litre+ of oil per 1000km, lotsa rattle and knocks, etc, plus "there was only 1200 kms left on the engine".

When someone else asked how the OP knew that there were only 1200 kms left, the reply was "that's when it rolls over to 000,000".

Never heard of a million-km Deli before, but who knows?

BCDelica's old Gold '90 is still on the road up here. the mileage aint super high, but what is notable is that it was the third ever imported into Canada, and the only one of those three still on the road!

Such a great idea. The usual topic is mostly regarding low mileage Delica's. It will be interesting to see who does have the oldest and highest kms. I also agree that we should keep it to vehicles currently in Canada unless they are members of delica.ca and post themselves. Otherwise this thread will turn into "a friend of a friend of a friend once had a..." or " I think I saw a _____ on the Internet once with _____kms."

I'm definitely not in the running. Within the first two years of owning my deli I put on 60,000kms, but now that I'm back at school I've driven it 3 times since mid August and have probably put on 200kms.

1993 Delica l300, 208,000kms.

I'm right in the middle - '91 / 106,000km. But my '03 Yamaha FJR has 100,000km on it, of which I did 76,000 in the past 2 years if that counts for anything :-)

Looking forward to getting a Deli in the US, prefer a 1986+ L300

I don't think you'll find any Delica's in Canada over 250/300k's. but in the rest of the world 600/700k's is not unheard of without major maintenance. :M
