We have to sell our home on wheels as our journey through South America finds its end. The car comes with a big Thule roof box, is fully equipped with camping gear, has just the right size to go wherever you want, has 4WD, chilean plates and is very well maintained. For us, it’s simply the perfect car for overlanding – especially with surfboards or a lot of gear. Available from beginning October in Santiago de Chile.


8’750 US-Dollars for Mitsubishi Montero Sport (2001) including all gear and an almost new Thule box and new Thule roof racks (Thule has lifelong guarantees). Optional we sell the car without the box and racks for 7’500 US-Dollars, but only if we could sell the box and racks without the car.

(see listed details below)

The vehicle has 4-wheel drive and high ground clearance, making it able to deal with almost all kind of roads in South America. It has a comfortable mattress and blankets for two people, a little cupboard for clothes, storage underneath the bed, a wooden board on the roof that holds jerrycans, a big rooftop storage (original Thule box) which can hold a lot of gear for example three surfboards (our biggest board is 6’8’’). The car is fully equipped for any overlander adventure (camping and kitchen equipment, tent, straps, tools, 2 jerrycans, and so on).

We bought the car in September 2017 in Santiago de Chile, it is registered in Chile and has all the necessary documents and insurances. There is much work done (by us and by the previous owners) to the car to ensure it continues to run well and remains dependable. Below details are listed. Mitsubishi Montero is a very common vehicle throughout South America what makes it easy for you to find spare parts and cheap labor.

As we have already been through the experience of buying a ca in Chile, we are able to make this process easy for you. We can help you with whole procedure and our Chilean friend is happy to vouch for you (it is mandatory to have a Chilean citizen as guarantor when you apply for the RUT).

we're eventually interested in your car. We could com to Santiago in november (from 6th nov on). Would this fit with your plans? Will the chile-plates be a problem, if we want to travel to other countries as well? I read something like this.

***Montero Sport Sale in Chile***

Hello Ecke

Where are you at the moment? We are driving slowly down from Colombia (Medellín) to Chile. If your on the road somewhere we maybe could meet before November. We will leave Santiago (and SA) the 18th October. But we have a friend, who would take over for us and arrange the whole sale process. So no worries.

Regarding the boarder issue: We never had any problems at any boarder. There is just one thing to know: It is not possible to cross the boarder at Arica (Chile) leaving Chile entering Peru as a foreigner with a chilen plate. But in the other direction, coming from Peru entering Chile, it‘s no problem at all. As well as it‘s no problem to cross the boarder to Bolivia either in San Pedro de Atacama or on the direct way to La Paz. 

If you have any further questions, please send me a WhatsApp. It is easier to stay in contact. Thomas +41 76 580 91 82

Saludos Thomas

P.s. We are a swiss couple, so if you are from Germany or Austria, we could switch the language ;)
