Wanted: car to travel in South America starting october 2012

Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean Wanted: car to travel in South America starting october 2012

In october we are flying to South America after a 6 months bicycle-trip through South East Asia. First we are gonna rest in the Caribean, after that we are planning to go down south. For the remaining 5 months we are searching for a van, 4x4 or car that helps us discover the South
American continent.

Do you have a car in S-America or do you know somebody who has one around october 2012 and you want to sell it, please let us know. The car or van has to be made for travelling. By this I mean that it's not a peugeot 106 or a mini. We prefer a litttle van or a 4x4 where we can sleep in so we can skip the hotels on the way.

Can you help us with this, than please let us know. Thank you in advance for the support!

Greetings from Thailand
Dick and Charlotte from the Netherlands

thanks for the reply; I guess by 13.000 you mean dollars? In that case it's way above our budget. But thanks anyway and I wish you all the best.

Hello Dick and Charlotte,

me and my girlfriend travelling with our Toyota Land Cruiser in Ecuador and we wanna sell our car in Colombia around october 2012.
Here are informations about the car:

It works with gasoline super or extra (they call it differently from one country to another), it´s build in 1991, the papers are also from Washington, USA. It has an automatic transmission and four wheel drive. In May 2012 it had 450.000 kilometres, now it´s probably more. The trunk is adapted for sleeping, you can pull the back seats into a forward position and use the space for your mattresses. Here´s the link to the pictures, if you want more just let me know:

The "package" is including:
- two spare wheels (altogether six wheels)
- box for safe keeping on the car´s roof
- jack, jumper cables, tow rope
- some maps from South América, sleeping bags, equipment for cooking and so on

We thinking about 5000 Euros. What do you mean?
