[SOLD] ASTRO VAN 4X4 FOR SALE END DECEMBER / JANUARY / CHILE / ARGENTINA

=== SOLD ===

=== ASTRO VAN 4X4 FOR SALE ===

So, there it is, our beautiful travelling machine is for sale.

To take on the road from end of december onward (got no timeframe, so it can be a month later too).

Place is flexible, around Santiago (Chile) or Buenos Aires (Argentina) or other. Ask and see with us.

7000 euros OBO.

So what is it ?

It's THE chevrolet ASTRO van, 2002 model.

It's unstoppable (4x4 automatic - AWD + manual tow/haul)
It's independant (100L. gas tank + 20L. jerrycan)
It's powerful (motor v6 4.3L, gasoline)
It's comfortable (Automatic gears, cruise control, hydrolic direction)

It's a great bedroom (foldable bed, led lights built-in)
It's a great kitchen (sink, cooking stove, ELECTRIC FREEZER, full size gaz bottle, lots of storing space)
It's a great water bottle (roof water tank / shower, inside water tank)
It's a power plant (Solar panels, two bateries, inverter)

It's a legal no-brainer (american plate)

With 310 000 KM on meter, this motor is barely touching half life.

"And, how much petrol does it use ?"

Between 13 and 15l/100 km. Patagonian winds dependant, mainly. Those who have been there, they know.

"Ok, I love it ! Is there anything wrong with it?"

Being from 2002, it has lived some lives already. It's in really good shape, drives good, lives good.

Minor stuff went through the years : Locks are independant and key only. Back door needs to be slammed. One arm-rest would need fixing...

During it's former lives it has needed repairs, wich have been done thoroughly. I have most of the receit for them.

Recently :
New suspensions,
All 4 new tires,
Change of coolant valve (Fixing coolant leak)

Oh, and I throw in FREE INSURANCE FOR MULTIPLE SOUTH AMERICAN COUNTRIES in there too ! Valid until SEPTEMBRE 2019

"It's american plated ? What does it mean and why does it matter ?"

Ok, let me tell you : in latin america you can buy vehicules from the country you are in, or any vehicule travelling into them. Locally, the only country that you can safely buy vehicules from is Chile. But things are changing, and there is countless stories of person being stopped at the border, not able to cross with their Chilean vehicules (there is trick out there, but it's never 100% guaranteed to work). On top of that buying Chilean car involves quite some paperwork, and it has a price too.

Then you can buy a foreign vehicule. You would need one that you can actually own, and the best in this category is : USA.
It's easy (I can explain the details), has a mild cost (250$ charge of service, and some more for taxes and fedexing documents) is completely legal, and you get to be the owner of the car. Which means :

EASY BORDER CROSSING, EASY RESELLING AFTERWARD !!

My car is registered in the US, in california, and has had three non american owners (french, as it happened) before you,
and they were all very happy about it !

"Ok, let's do it !"
or
"Ok, let's do it, but i'd like to ask some questions"

Please do !

Just PM me on facebook or send an e-mail at : gaelle [ d o t ] kermarrec29 [ weird A ] gmail [ you know the end of that ]

I'll put a whatsapp once I fix my phone (bloody broken screen).
More pictures, videos, live call, advices on overlanding, technical details, the ontologic nature of reality, you can ask anything really.

Know that because I am on the road I can not always answer right away. But I'll get back tou you :-)
