This Daihatsu Mira Step Van is classified as a Kei car in Japan which means it has smaller dimensions than your "standard" car and has a smaller motor for tax purposes and to get around crowded cities easier.
Exterior Dimensions: 54" wide, nbsp;74" High (from ground), 25" long (bumper to bumper)
Interior Dimensions: 53" wide, 8" high (from interior floor to roof), 2" long (from hatch to back of seat), 4" (from hatch to dash)
Motor is 3 cylinder, 50cc, bout 40 hp, speed manual. I have not done top speed but can cruise 45-50 OK. I do not suggest highway driving. Mostly limited by the 4 gears instead of 5. This car is made for more city driving, elivering, ruising. Motor is carbureted and runs great. Starts extremely fast and drives easily. Low HP but the car is small and light and has no problem getting around. It will not win any races (haha) but it is not intended for that.
Car drives great. Starts up very fast. No need to pump the gas, ust pull the choke lever. Pretty simple motor. Easy to adjust small things since it is carbureted which is good since these cars were not offered in America and not the easiest to get parts. Car drips a few drops of coolant every week or so. Probably just an old gasket on the water pump.
Car is 30 years old and looks to have spent most of it's life outside. There are some surface rust spot and the hatch has many rust spots. Luckily, lmost everything on this car is flat so it's easy to fix. This is all shown in the pictures. We show all the bad so you are not surprised by anything and know EXACTLY what you are buying.
Driver Seat has been replaced with a classic Recaro reclinable seat but has a large tear on the side. Still works great and is extremely comfortable. Easy enough to replace with your choice of new / used seat. Also has a passenger Jump Seat that folds to the side and is bolted in. Very cool and works well.
Interior dash is very sparse. Not many options or anything else, s it is a delivery / commercial vehicle. Has AM radio (AM is more popular than FM in Japan), eat controls, auge cluster and that is about it. Heat does NOT work very well. Has NO A/C. Has a vent above the windshield that opens to allow fresh air into the cabin with directional vents. This is a cool little piece and helps a lot. Also closes to seal up when it's cold outside. Outside of the vent looks like there was a Mercedes logo stuck on (I have no idea why) and has left a mark.
Would be cool to convert into a small food truck or something.
Tires are good. They are 13" snow tires currently. 13" tires are still available in America, usually find good deals on them online.
Wheel bolt pattern is 4x110. Odd bolt pattern but we have 2 sets of 4x110 in stock in our warehouse that are also for sale. Please message me for details. We also have small Kei spec bubble flares for sale too. They are universal, ut they are small radius to better fit Kei vehicles.
Pictures are the best way for us to show the condition. Please inspect them all and check out all the details.
Car is Federally Legal, omes with all necessary DOT, PA, ustoms, tc. paperwork. Please research your state and ask your local DMV how to plate and register. It is currently Ohio Titled. We have no emissions laws where the car is currently registered.
If you live in CALIFORNIA or HAWAII, ou basically can NOT register this car in those states due to their extremely expensive and extensive emissions and registration laws. If you live in CALIFORNIA or HAWAII, o NOT make an offer without fully realizing this and messaging me first or I will instantly decline your offer or cancel your order. This is to protect YOU.
Buyer is to arrange and pay for all shipping charges. I would advise against driving the car long distances anywhere as the top speed is low and parts are not readily available just in case you hit a large pothole or other drivers around you do stupid things. You can never be sure about how other drivers.
