Strange....

Post by difflock123 on Tue Sep 20, 2011 11:16 am

I might be in the market for another Hijet (or a Rascal/Carry, or porter)......

Anyone know of a good one being sold cheap?


I'd like the mechanicals to be good, and as long as the body/chassis isnt dropping off, then its fine....

if the interior is rough, broken, etc, it doesnt bother me Smile

pickup would be nice, but van would be strongly considered.

MOT and Tax would be a bonus....


Realistically, I'm looking at paying no more than £500 for it (I might be able to squeeze a little more though)

I'm in mid cornwall as well, so the closer the better Wink





basically, things havent worked out as planned, so I'm looking for a cheap, reliable little vehicle Smile

Hijets are a nasty addiction... get back into a real machine. You know nothing compares.

I'd recomend a van or MPV, as the legroom is stupidly small in my pickup.

dorset is a fair trek, but surrey! thats a long way :p


and yes, the little hijet is addictive Sad
you even find yourself comparing them to other small vans Very Happy


I might have to get another (its the only vehicle I havent broken! Sad)





are the pickup cabs smaller than the vans then?

I presumed they would be the same apart from the cab ends behind the seats.....

Yeah loads, I'm not a big guy apart from the pouch in my pants - I'm 1760mm tall, but there is very little room in there.

You can't tilt the seat back beyond bolt upright, and it doesn't go back anywhere near the mpv one did. I actually re-drilled my seat runners in my MPV and gave myself another 2 inches, and it made it full on luxurious.

I had to get out of my pick up twice on a 90 mile trip, where I drove my mpv for 200 miles once and then drove straight back. No way would I do that in Ernie.
