993cc Hijet wanted for 2015 Mongol Rally!

Post by BigJase on Tue Aug 05, 2014 2:37 pm

Hi everyone,

I am looking for a 993cc Daihatsu Hijet to use as our team vehicle for the 2015 Mongol Rally.

For those of you who don't know what that is, in basic terms you gather a team of people to drive from Battersea to Mongolia (no, really) in a vehicle that is 1000cc or under, all to raise money for some very worthy charities.

After much careful deliberation, me and my team mates have decided to get a Daihatsu Hijet as our trusty steed. It is perfect- small & robust, but roomy enough to fit all our gear and act as a place to sleep during our 12,000 mile trip.

We are based in Oxfordshire but would be willing to travel to almost anywhere within the UK.

We have set a budget of less than £1,000 as we will need to make modifications to it after purchase in any case, so the lower the starting price the better for us!

if anyone would be willing to help us out on our voyage, or knows of someone that might be, then please do get in touch. In return we can offer branding space on our Hijet for the rally, and a place in our list of sponsors on the official website, blog, and consequential online documentary series.

A huge thanks in advance,

Miles

Oh I also should add- PETROL ONLY please! Diesel is apparently quite hard to come by in places like Turkmenistan...  Laughing
