Hi !

We are a French couple living in Australia, travelling for our belated honey moon. With this car, we are exploring for 5 months the dirt tracks and roads in Chile/Argentina/Bolivia & Peru.

As the trip will soon come to an end, we are selling our trusted Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4x4 (m.y. 2003), all equipped and fitted for overland adventures.

Here are some details. We are currently in Peru and will go home from Santiago de Chile. We could sell the vehicle (almost) anywhere in those 2 countries.

Asking price USD6000.

- Wire and soldering iron
- Multi-Meter (Voltage, Current, Resistance, etc.)
- Glue and Duct tape

During our time we have (all receipts are available):

- changed the main battery (April 2015)
- changed the brake pads (June 2015)
- done the normal servicing (June 2015)

The car has been really reliable with us: we have had no issue with it. It ignited like a charm even in extremely cold/snowy conditions in Bolivia,……and it has been blessed by a priest in Copacabana, Bolivia ! (we can share videos of that :)

Please contact us for more questions, more pictures or to arrange a Skype call.

Cheers !
Laure and Franck

Dear Laure and Franck, your

Dear Laure and Franck, your car sounds very, very interesting for us. We are a German couple and will arrive Argentina on August 22, and we could come to Santiago on September 6 or 7. When will you be there? A question regarding the car's documents: Are they in your name? How could this all be transferred legally? Please contact us at [email protected].

Best, Birgit and Juan

Sous le charme

Chers Laure et Franck,

Nous sommes tombé sur votre annonce et sommes très interéssé par votre magnifique 4x4. Notre projet étend de commencer en Amerique du Sud (sans doute Argentine ou Chili) et de remonter jusqu'aux Etats Unis, le fait d'avoir tout le materiel pour être complètement autonomone nous plait beaucoup. Nous espèrons que vous n'avez pas encore vendu votre bolide et que nous pourrons discuter pour trouver une solution qui nous arrange tous les quatres.

Very interested in your car!

Hi Laure and Franck,

Your car and travels look amazing! We arrive in Santiago on 29 September and would love to meet you guys and have a look at your car.

Can you help with the transfer of ownership? How would that work exactly?

My email address is [email protected].

Look forward to hearing from you.

Arrivons à Santiago le 14 Sept

Nous sommes très très s intéressés par votre Mitsubishi, pour tout ce que vous en décrivez, comme ce que vous nous en donnez à voir... D'ailleurs apparemment nous ne sommes pas les seuls...
Est-il toujours à vendre ?
Si oui, nous arrivons le 14 septembre à Santiago. Est-ce que cela correspondrait à votre timing ?
Merci par avance de votre réponse.
Bien cordialement.
JP & J.

Desolee pour le retard. Nous avons recu un acompte (d'un autre couple de francais!) donc a priori la voiture est vendue.

Je n'ai pas encore enlever l'annonce car nous n'avons pas encore convenue d'une date de transfer de propriete. Est ce que vous voulez que je vous tienne au courant si il y a un changement?

Si oui, merci de m'envoyer votre adresse email.
