SOLD: REDUCED PRICE - Mitsubishi L300, available in Santiago today

Dear fellow Overlanders and soon to be Overlanders,

We are selling our beloved Mitsubishi L300 2WD, LHD, imported from Germany but currently registered in Canadian (Ontario); camperized by Bürow (a company similiar to Westfalia), seats up to 6 people, in Santiago de Chile, available immediately for US$4500 OBO (Or best offer):
The engine is 2.0L, V4, 90 HP, gasoline, 5-speed manual transmission, Fuel economy ~10 L/100 km; ODO ~198,000 km (in Santiago), year 1992;
Driven from Toronto, Canada to Santiago de Chile over the last 14 months. Had no problems on the road, it was a very reliable vehicle. The van is very popular in Central and South America (people often mistook us for a collectivo bus, get ready to see a lot of disappointed faces as you drive past them on the highway). Parts easily available, regular maintenance performed:
- oil and filter change
- timing belt, tensioners and V-belt changed at 182,000 km
- front brake pads, bearing, ball joints and tire rods changed at 182,000 km
-  new car battery purchased at 160,000 km

Camperization made by Bürow:
- Popup-roof which sleeps 2 people (tent is original and the material sometimes rips but we always fixed it with Gorilla tape, the material is still water resistant and the roof doesn’t leak), when roof is up it’s possible to stand in the van, good for cooking etc. Pop-up tent has 2 windows with mosquito nets which provide air when sleeping or cooking.
- integrated propane system (removable tank) with 11 L bottle which is hooked up to: a 2 stove burner, internal heater (which works very well even at high altitudes): brand Truma, a 3 way fridge (also runs on battery or external electricity connection)
- various cabinets for storage
- internal bed that sleeps two or can be transformed into rear or front facing seats
- swivel table
- sink with water pump connected to a 20L tank
- electrical hookup with internal 220V plug
- tinted windows
- sliding doors on both sides of the van

Also includes:
- Removable awning that can be attached to either side of the van
- Bedsheets, 2 pillows, 1 light fleece blanket
- 4 camping chairs and folding table (1.20m x 0.6m)
- Everything you need to cook: 1 pot, 1 pan, 4 plates, 4 bowls, cutlery, serving utensils, can-opener, Tupperware, strainer, 4 glasses etc.
- Cooler
- Required safety equipment: fire extinguisher, two safety triangles, reflective vest, first aid kit
- Spare tire, jumper cables, jack, various tools, spare water pump for engine
- Curtains, windshield shade
- portable sink and camping solar shower
- bike rack for 2 bikes

Problems:
- Doesn’t spray windshield washer fluid (most likely an electrical problem, we didn’t try too hard to fix it)
- Driver’s side door does not open or lock from the outside, only the inside
- The material on one side of the bench is wearing quite badly, we keep it covered with a sheet
- As mentioned earlier, pop-up roof tent torn in some places
- 3 little rusty spots
