Buy/Export/Import Advice: German vehicle to Canada via South America

So here's the situation...

Vehicle is registered in Germany and currently in South America on a temporary import permit. Is it possible for the current owner to sell it to me and have it shipped from Chile/Argentina/Uruguay/Brazil to Canada where it would be imported (vehicle is over 15 years old) and ultimatey registered by me? What order of events would best accomplish this if possible... sale first then ship then import, ship first then sale before/after importing or while in bond? Can he even sell me the vehicle legally while it is in SA on the temporary import permit? Seller and I have been talking to brokers and shipping companies on both ends and scouring the internet to get some clarity, but still clear as mud at this point.

Any prior experience or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
