SOLD!!!Fully equipped Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4x4 for SALE, Mid NOVEMBER 2016 - Santiago de Chile



We are a young Aussie couple on our first overlanding adventure, travelling through Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. Unfortunately, our trip can´t last forever and we must sell our trusty vehicle before we fly to the States to continue our trip on November 23rd. We are looking to sell our car in Santiago, Chile within the week or two prior.

The car is a fully equiped 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. It's a 4x4, able to drive on any kind of roads you may cross. We have discovered this is very important in South America since a lot of roads are gravel with many potholes.

What we mean by fully equiped is that it is a complete house on wheels, with a tent on the roof, a fridge, a 2 fires gas stove, a 40L water tank, plenty of storage space, extra batteries to charge virtually anything you need (including computers!) and camping gear!

The car is registered in Canada which alleviates a lot of paperwork, especially to sell the car and makes crossing borders a breeze. We just need to go to the notarial office and the redtape can be done within the hour! 

The car will have something like 255 000 kms at the end of our trip. Of course, it is not a brand new car so expect some scars and small things that have been fixed but it is in great shape and we will have done a mechanical review before selling. It is and has been very well maintained, with oil and air filters regularly changed. The Mitshubishi Montero is a great model, very reliable and spare parts are easy to find.

At the beginning of our trip we refurbished the car with new kitchen equipment, new storage boxes, new linen, pillows and blankets (enough to keep you warm in below freezing temperatures!)

The rooftop tent allows for free camping every night, everwhere from beautifully peaceful beaches to the middle of bustling cities, plus it provides a great source of interaction with curious locals!

We are asking for AUD $7750 ( approx 5250 Euro).
