**MUST SEE, Custom 4x4 Van for sale, end of Jan 2017, Chile or Argentina**

1997 Chevrolet Astro AWD  (All Wheel Drive)
4.3L (4300cc) 190 HP V6
4 speed Automatic gearbox
150,000 Miles (240,000kms) at time of handover
California plates
Asking price $13,000 US 

     We will be finishing our trip from California to Ushuaia sometime near the end of January. The van will be available sometime around then, we are somewhat flexible on the date but handover can be no later than February 1st, 2017. The handover location will be somewhere in southern Chile or Argentina.
    This van is amazing, its in great shape and has already proven itself wonderfully on our 1 year trip. We built it ourselves in California so there was a great deal of attention to detail, as you will see from the pics. Mechanically it is in great shape, motor is strong and runs great. It has plenty of power which comes in handy in the mountains, it will easily cruise at 100KPH unlike its VW competitors which struggle up hills. Also the 4 wheel drive is great for getting on and off the beaches.
    This van really is great and has way too many features to list.  As you will read it really includes EVERYTHING you need for the trip. All you have to do is show up with your passport and some cloths. It is a great deal and worth every penny.
    I am uploading several pictures with this post but if you are interested or just want to see more, Check out our website at www.theglobetrol.com and our facebook page. There you will find tons more detailed pics of the entire build process from the start.

I tried responding to the email address you left but it did not work, anyways!!!! our email is [email protected] .com   Thanks for looking at our van and we are happy that you like it. Sorry for the delayed response, sometimes internet is hard to find. We are somewhat flexible on the date of handover, when were you thinking, and where would you be interested in picking it up? Im sure you also have many questions about the vehicle, let me know if you want to talk on the phone or maybe skype so we could show you all the features of the van.
