[SOLD] Fully equipped Lexus GX470 2005 (US Plates!), End of May - Early June around Santiago de Chile

2005 Lexus GX470 4WD; based on the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado ‘J120’

$ 8’500 + Title transfer cost as deposit

When: End of May - Early June 2019, ideally Santiago de Chile (Flexible)

I am a Swiss photographer who has been travelling through Patagonia for the past months. This car is a beauty, and has been one of the best purchases I have ever made. The Toyota motor and car quality make for an excellent drive with minimal mechanical worries, and you can get anywhere you want. In addition, the US license plates make the transfer of the car easy and hassle-free.

From sleeping at the base of volcanoes to the beaches of the Carretera Austral, anything is possible! You can go off the beaten track, out of the backpacker bubble, truly dive into local culture or get to the farthest flung landscape wonders. If you're interested, feel free to reach out, I would be happy to answer any questions by whatsapp, email or skype! I am currently in southern Chile/Argentina, so the wifi might be a little spotty, but I will get back to you ASAP!

· Sale of car will be done through 'OverlandTitles' (https://m.facebook.com/OverlandTitles/) by Alex Smith, the same way I (and the previous owners as well) bought the car a few months ago. He will assist with transferring ownership in the US from start to finish. It was really efficient and easy! Within a few days the car will be registered in your name and your are then the legal owner, which gives you the freedom to cross any border - no questions asked!
