We are selling our trusty Isuzu Trooper come camper in either Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo at the end of this April or start of May, 2012. We have removed the rear seats and built a bed platform with plenty of storage below the platform. The car comes complete with two spair tires, all cooking gear (pots/pans/stove/cutlery/etc.), refrigerator, air compressor, 30 liters of jerry cans, tools, basically anything you need to live out of a car in south america.
The Trooper is a 1990 with 120,000 original miles on the engine. We had to rebuild the top half of the engine and had the radiator disassembled and cleaned (the reason the engine needed a rebuild) when we first bought it and have since put on over 6,000 miles on her. We bought the car in Chile so the transfer would consist of getting a notarized letter of authorization from me (the car owner) to you to give you permission to cross borders with my title. I know people are going to say that this is not possible but that is exactly what we did when we first left Chile as at the time I did not have the car title yet and only had an authorization letter from the previous owner.
We drove the car down Ruta 40 in Argentina with zero problems so we are confident that this car can handle any terrain that South America has to offer. We began in Santiago, over the Andes to Mendoza, down to Patagonia, and have reached as far as Uruguay. We are planning to drive up as much of Brazil as we can in the next 6 weeks, so we are flexible with a final destination.
Please contact me if you are interested and I can send you additional info and plenty of photos. We purchased the car for $6000 USD and have invested about another $2000 in upgrades and repairs. We are asking $4000 USD or best offer. We feel we overpaid a bit and do not want to continue this tradition.
Contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org I would be happy to send photos.
