SOLD!!! 1989 TOYOTA HILUX SURF (DIESEL) 2.8L 4X4 - $3950 O.B.O

About Us

Our trip has come to an end, and we are looking for new buyers for this classic overland truck!

We are now looking new owners as our adventure has come to an end. We are a Dutch couple, Daan & Charlotte, who have enjoyed traveling the last two months throughout Patagonia. We are hoping to find either another couple or a few friends who wish to do the same - it’s awesome!

We enjoyed getting to know the character of this trustworthy truck and we lived and slept happily and comfortably every night of the way. Upon selling it, it will be equipped to throw your bags in and go!

The truck has run an easy 277,000km and should at least be able to run double that. So what are you waiting for? Contact us and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime!

For the truck we are asking $3950 or best offer and will be selling him in Santiago as of NOW. We are flexible as to location.



The diesel motor is very economic as diesel fuel is very affordable (ca. $0.70 cents per liter in Chile). The engine has got 2.4 turbo diesel, a manual transmission, 4x4, and has got a high clearance, which is perfect for a lot of smaller roads. It gets about 11km/L on the highway and a little less around town.

As you don’t need expensive computer diagnostics for the engine, it is also very convenient and affordable at the mechanic. Toyota Hilux is a very common vehicle in Central & South America, you can easily find a place to repair it, if something happens. Seriously, ALL mecanicos have worked on these trucks and know them  inside and out. Parts are always readily available should there be a problem.

The wooden sleeping platform is 1,90m x 1,40m. with a foam mattress that was put in July 2016. It’s super comfy too!

Underneath it has got 2 plastic boxes and 4 smaller boxes to store food, kitchen stuff, clothes etc.. and more storage space underneath the bed/passenger seats. There is also a hidden safe installed for valuables computers, cameras, important documents etc. We’ve crossed multiple borders and never have the found the safe! There is a lot of space behind the two front seats, and you can also put on back seat up, if you want space for one more person. Ideal for hitchhikers!

The truck comes with the following
• 4 boxes
• 2 chairs
• a table
• a 2-pers tent
• 20L jerry can for extra Diesel
• fire extinguisher (need for controls in Argentina)
• different tools
• shovel
• spare tire
• towing cable
• car jack
• safety triangle/life jacket
• Gas cooking/camping equipment (for more details contact us)..
• AUX plug included for your sweet roadtrip tunes :)

It’s been well maintained and just got an oil/filter change (March 14, 2017).

• We bought the car from the 5th owners - all whom have also traveled with the car. It’s a true Overlander! The original owners did not use the car as a travel car.

You get all the necessary documents to hit the road as soon as possible:
• Permiso de Circulación (valid until 31.03.2018)
• Revision Téchnica (valid until end February 2018)
• Emisión de gases and seguro obligatorio (valid until 31.03.2018)

We can also give you a permission to cross the boarders (via Notary). It allows you to take the car out of the country right away, instead of waiting a few weeks to be able to receive the title in your name.

The RUT number is the only official document you need to buy the car and we can help you with the process. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need more information. (We speak English, Spanish, Dutch, French and German).

We look forward to sending off our truck for another adventure in this absolute gorgeous continent!
