For Sale: Daihatsu Fourtrak. The very reluctant sale of this iconic and soon to be classic (RHD) Daihatsu Fourtrak. There is no Spanish hill this 2.7 litre (diesel) work horse will not attempt. Perfect for Spanish terrain both in its road use and it’s fantastic off road capabilities. Easily comparable to the Landrover with a legal towing limit of 3500kg so great for caravans. Folding rear seats offers great carrying capacity. Manufactured with 7 seats but at the moment only ITV’d 5 seats. This vehicle has covered 119.000 miles and has a new ITV and matriculated onto Spanish plates. Completed a trip to the Sahara desert and back April this year without a hiccup. Brand new alternator, brake discs, brake pipes, front shocks and a newish battery and a great set of tyres. Selling only because I have been bequeathed another car. A few expected dinks and scratches. Located in Algarrobo Pueblo €2,900 Amanda 634316474
