My Mitsubishi Pajero is a 1995, 2.8TD, Short Wheel Base, Bluemoon Limited Edition. From what I’ve read there were only 500 of these ever made so she’s fairly rare. The main things this model has are a little more chrome than usual (rear light guards), special upholstery, is one colour as opposed to two-tone, rectangular headlights (LWB type), roof spoiler with brake light. I believe the paint is called Moonlight Blue which seems to be unique to this edition.
The Bluemoon also has the Pajero Winter Pack which consists of a bodylift and heated fuel filter (plus a few other bits and pieces).
It’s an unusual dark blue that can appear purpleish in certain light. There’s also a yellowish pinstripe down the side and at the bottom of each door a decal which says “Pajero Bluemoon”.
Apart from that I don’t think there’s any difference to a standard Pajero. So really it’s just a few cosmetic changes each of which you will find on many other Pajero’s in one form or another. I really do like the single colour though rather than the two-tone.
The car came to me in very good condition. It’s obviously a car that has been very well looked after. Only had 71000 kms on the clock – about 44000 miles.
Below you can see various stages of my altering of the car’s appearance, from how I bought it, to how it is now.
May 2007: This is how she was when I bought her. I never liked the huge bullbar!
May 2008: Now without the bullbar.
September 2008: New 33″ tyres added and my steel wheels painted black.
October 2008: With my new bash plate added, but obscured a little by the square number plate.
February 2009: Fun in the snow with the newer horizontal number plate.
February 2009: Same day, just another angle.
Next mod on the list – remove those side steps!
My Pajero is long gone I’m sorry to say, replaced by an economical, boring, family car. I miss it all the time though as it was always an event whenever I climbed in. I’ve owned many cars, but hardly any have had the character my Pajero had.
