Van with American plates wanted in Panama

I am an American living in Panama. I would like a van with American plates to drive around South America. I am open to wait for the right van at a good price. I prefer American plates because my passport is American and possibly would like to drive it back to the US at some point.

VW Vanagon for sale

Hi Ethan
I just saw your add. We are two best friends from Switzerland driving the americas. Our Volkswagen Westfalia Vanagon is in great shape for its age, it has a new engine, new wheels, new frontaxis and new gear shifting. It‘s the perfect solution for camping as it is fully equiped with kitchen, cooler, outside grill and has two beds able to sleep 4 and also 4 seats with belt. In addition we have a solar panel with external battery and a big rooftop cargobox.
We will ship the van from Panama to Colombia mid March and are planing on driving down through Colombia/Equador/Peru/Bolivia to Chile. You could have a look at the van this weekend. And take over from Peru, Bolivia or Chile end of May. As you would like to drive around South Amerika, this could be a perfect solution for you as you would only have to ship it back to Panama and wouldn‘t need to ship it to South America in the beginning (saving around 1‘500.-USD). The plates are from BC Canada, which is not USA but way easier for driving in America than for any other plates. We don‘t have a Canadian passport but had no problems at the borders down here what so ever.
You can have a first look at it, there are pictures and videos of the van on our website: or on instagram: @camerivan

Please let us know if you are interested in our van. We could organize a date for you to see the van from Friday (9th March) to Sunday (11th March).

Kind regards
Marc and Mathias
