WANTED: 4x4 or van Ushuaia early Febuary - VEHICLE FOUND

VEHICLE FOUND!

Hello,

My girlfriend and I are looking to buy a vehicle in Ushuaia to travel South America in February.

The vehicle we are looking for would preferably be a 4x4 van. We could also be possibly interested in non 4x4 vans and ordinary 4x4's. It would be best for us if the vehicle is already set up for an overland trip with a bed inside.

Thanks for looking and we look forward to hearing from anyone,

Josh

I have a van toyota Hiace 1990

Hi im a canadian that been 15 month on the road and almost arriving at my final destination in El chalten argentina which is really close to punta arena. I will be in el chalten in around 1-2 week depending on weather and plan to stay there for at least 1 month for rock climbing. I will be in piedra parada (argentina) close to ESQUEL until the weather is good enought o drive south!

My van is not a 4X4, but you can look at my exhaustive description and judge for yourself if its may be something for you.

if you have any question let me know!!

This is an exhaustive description of my van

Have you ever dream to travel all the Americas? But not feeling to only go where all the tourist goes? I have a proposition for you!
I live and started my trip in Canada, and bought the best van I could ever dream and modify it thinking I was going to keep it forever, but now that I almost reach the southern part of my final destination, I’m kind of feeling tired of driving and do not see myself driving back up north like I first intended. So if you want to avoid shipping your vehicle down here, and do not feel like driving down and up, I offer you the opportunity to buy the best van you will ever own, and start your trip down going up north.
When I start shopping to buy a van I was obsess the whole time to find a good Dodge/Mercedes Sprinter, but I end up buying this wonderful Toyota van that I did not know existed before. It was a lot more than what I first plan to pay, but after I read all the amazing review compare to the Sprinter one, I commit without ever regretting my choice.
So this is an exhaustive description of my van in and out. It’s a Toyota Hiace 1990 RHD (Imported originaly from Japan), Transmission Semi-Automatic (so can be drive automatic or use gear box when going up and down hill to save on break and easier on the transmission.) Engine Diesel 2.8Liter (4 cylinder) which average over all my trip at 10.3L/100km (I drive mostly in the mountain). And does about 9.3L/100km if you are driving only at the beach level, or 11.3L/100km going mainly uphill in the mountain. – Which is really really good for the size of the van.
Over the fact that Diesel engine consume between 30-50% less fuel for the same age same size vehicle, the price of diesel vs Gasoline at the gas station is between 20-50% cheaper depending on the country. Oil change requirement only every 8000km instead of 5000km for gas engine, and longevity of the engine is double the amount from a gas engine motor. But since it’s a Toyota, and my van as the best engine from most review, it is apparently not rare to see that engine going at least to 700 000km and even saw post for sale from one that still have the original engine at 1260 000km. This is more than miracle for every brand in the world, except for Toyota. Not to preach for any brand, but there’s no comparison to Toyota efficiency, reliability, and durability. All the poorest country of central and South America have a Toyota rate on their road above 90%; 9% of other Japanize brand, and less than 1% others brand not Japanize. In richer country they have more American car, but probably because they are conditioned to capitalism more than for the quality of their vehicles.
Which bring the use lifespan of my van to less than 15% since I only have 92 000km on the odometer for now. (The guy I bought it from only drive 4000km in 7 years; he own four vehicles and only use that van for family vacation twice a year; and they always arrive from Japan with super low km on them.)
Here are few link reference if you would like to have a better idea of what this van is about from previous owner.
http://www.roadtestreports.co.uk/vans/toyota/hiace/1990/
http://www.roadtestreports.co.uk/vans/toyota/hiace/
The model Hiace is a really rare model in Canada and America, but as soon as you reach south Mexico and downward, it is exactly the same van they use as the commuter between little town and city. (Mini bus style that fit 15 peoples) So most mechanics have work often with this model before.
But that’s only if you need one, because since July 2014 when I bought my van, except the full check up I did before I leave, and regular maintenance of changing, oil, filter, break, tire, and fluid, when necessary, I only break one suspension bolt (19$ part and labor in Guatemela); change a sparkplug fuse (1$ in Ecuador); break the battery connector (6$ part and labor in Peru), Change the engine tempo and clean something (Can remember the part) to get rid of the black smoke when I driving at high altitude (12$ in Ecuador) Now my exhaust is always fully clean no matter the elevation I drive.– It’s literally the most trouble free van I ever own. For this reason, many locals have offered me to buy my van to change it into a taxi-bus like the others. – But I was not ready to sell back then.
Since it’s my biggest investment ever on a vehicle, to the advice of my mechanic friend, I was regularly checking all fluid, tire pressure, cleaning air filter at least every month, and ask mechanic for advice when I had a doubt. I also added 2oz of cleaning engine additive to every full gas tank. So I took great care of it in the maintenance and the way I drive to stretch the longevity of everything in the van.
Even if it’s just a van, I really feel she have a soul. That’s why I named her Panza Ganesha. Panza mean big belly in Spanish, and Ganesha is a Hindu Goddess that represent the remover of obstacle. And the reason is because she is heavy (frame is not aluminum, and older vehicle were built to last forever instead of going fast), so she drive slow when going up hill because of her small engine, but she can go on forever. I drive from see level to 4300m in less than few hours and reach 3 times up to 4800m altitude in peru and never had any issue. I could easily sell it to someone that want to transform her into a transporter mini-bus, but I feel it would kill her spirit. That’s why I would be happier to find other travellers to keep her going toward new adventure instead of enslaving her to work forever.
She is much bigger than a minivan, but does not look big on the outside, so easy to drive tight and everywhere to hide. It’s a rear traction, so a lot more powerful than front traction, but it is not a 4x4. I read many forums that recommend buying a 4x4 to come down, but unless you want to do donut in the sand at the beach, I never felt limited to where I wanted to go. Every traveller I meet in my trip which had 4x4 told me the same. That they which they had bought something with more inside space like my van instead of a 4x4 that almost never get use and was easily avoidable. It’s not that I have to limit myself more, but simply that I have to be more careful a bit and maybe park 10 meters away from where I could find a better spot with a 4 wheels drive sometime. I tested her on many really steep and rough road and I was highly surprise to where I could go without trouble. The only place I have to be more careful and should avoid to not pull my shovel and traction aid out, is when there’s more than 15cm (5-6inch) of soft sand going up hill, or deep wet mud; if not it goes no problem.
At the beginning of my trip I change all 4 tires with the best I could find. 8 ply tires which are guaranty for at least 50 000km and where I currently drive less than 17 000km with it for now. (So about 1/3 use of their minimum potential of life. But I drive usually slow and mellow, so even more easy on my tires.
Since I thought that I would keep that van forever, I also invest in the best solar system kit available on the market. (I invest over 2800$ in total) The panel are 2x 100watt each (200W total) 3mm thick all black fix direct to the roof without hole on the van, and since the van is 7 foot tall no one can see that I have solar panel and even if people can see them no one can recognize they are solar panel because they are fully black. When I bought them they just arrived on the market, and had the best solar caption at around (22%). I also bought 2 of the best and biggest deep cycle Battery AGM I could find, and the most fancy charge controller that increase my solar panel caption efficiency up to 60%. Currently, more than 1 year after I bought the system, the battery charge only drop by 3% from its full capacity. And I was working on my computer around 50-60 every week. The inverter is only 450Watts, but easily enough for 2 computer, light, and recharging all your gadget at the same time.. Also have 4 LED light (60 bulb) so super low consumption but plenty of powerful light. And there’s more light system as well. Also, there’s 2 normal speakers DELL to play music inside or watch movie with good sound. The powerbar have 6 inlet for everything you need to plug in and one extra 12 volt cigarette lighter style that does not need the inverter to be turn on...so perfect to charge all gadget quietly
There’s plenty of food storage, and the biggest cooler I could find, but I do not have a stove since I eat raw and mainly fruit and nuts. Instead, I build 4 big drying rack where I dry fruit, leather fruit and raw cookie on the roof and also have tones of Mason jar. I have 2 big 20L water jug, 2 big glass jar of 3L, and 20L solar shower bag. I also have other basic kitchen stuff (like oven for firecamp, hot plate in cast iron,  small pan, and pot, big cutting board, ustencile, and more).
For car stuff I have basic tool, wrench kit, car jack, (fire extinguisher, reflector, orange triangle which are mandatory in some country) mini shovel, traction aid, boosting cable, 10L jerry can, backup bottle for all the van fluid, and depend when I will sell my van, I still have extra filter for oil and diesel.
The set up is currently for me travelling solo, but I design everything so it could be comfortable for 2. So there’s 2 set up for 2 working table with computer, the bed is currently only one meter wide but if all seat are flat it’s the same dimension as a full queen size bed (60’x 80’) could even be few inch longer for tall people. Plenty of storage underneath, and even a super secret compartment to hide valuable stuff, Which is really useful in some place. (It’s easy access but so well hidden that 4 American custom agent did not find it even if they search my van for 2 hours.)
Window are all tinted (except the front); 95% on the side so no one can see anything, and 80% for the rear and back window. (It was 95% all over before, but redo few has it was too dark and I could not see anything when trying to back up at night time), also have nice and thick curtain on each window.
Unfortunately, on my last day in Peru, some professional Robber breaks in and stole my car radio, and busts the sliding door lock and back door lock. But I check it’s only the lock that’s broken; no problem to open (from inside and outside) or lock the door. I want it to fix the issue for cheap in Peru, but since I was literally quitting the country right away, I had no more Pesos, and among my many of my personal stuff they stole they took the remaining of my US money. After I realize how much more expensive Chile was, I still left the issue unfix. First because I’m running low on money, and second because I thought it would be less attractive to break in for future potential robber. So now I use the inside van speaker if I want to drive with music. Also, there’s minor crack on the fiber glass fender (simili bumper) on the front and back. I already fix it 2 times when my suspension was lower, but road are sometime bad in places where I go explore, and keep busting it. In Colombia I finally found someone that could jack my suspension and add 4 extras inch, which bring the total high at 12inch now. (Front and back) But I have a low point at 9inch, because I add a spare tire rack under since I did not want to have it inside and have less room. But still high enough for everywhere I go. The body, engine, and under the vehicle is rust free, Micro dent here and there, but nothing easily perceptible unless you have Sherlock Home eye.
The visual aspect is also really misleading because they were a lot of money spend from previous owner on that van for the esthetic. The most outstanding feature is the super fancy fiberglass make up that wrap the whole van. There’s also fancy light all around, but only the one at the front are still working. ( I mean all the normal light are working fine, but there’s extra decoration light that did not all work when I bought it)
Inside, the decoration is really colorful as well, fire color for the upper part (Curtain and ceiling) and water color for the bed, cooler and cloth storage. It also have a strong accent on Ganesha (drawing on the front of the van, and ceiling) and spirituality. I litterally lived in that van. Probably past more time inside then outside the van. I was for sure driving and sleeping, but also writing, stretching and meditating everyday. She has a really good energy to share.
Having just sold my condo, I had more money than usual to not care how much I was spending on her at first. But since I travel alone and did not work for a really long time to focus on my book, I’m starting to reach the yellow zone of my finance. And since everything is much more expensive in Chile and Argentina, I don’t know how long I will last before I’ll vanish all my resource. There’s still few options available to me, but I decided to open myself to potentially sell her to see if I could find the perfect buyer to take over her.
I invest well over 13 500$ US on my baby, which is probably close to the 10 others vehicles I own in my life. First because I thought that I would keep it forever, but also because I knew that the cost of my trip would not simply based on the purchase price of the van. So just like you, I had 2 choices.
Buy a cheaper vehicle, maybe have more trouble with it and/or a lot less living space, consume more fuel over the trip, and lower resale value, or buy my beautiful Panza Ganesha, save tones of fuel because of low Diesel price and low consumption, reliable so less maintenance, and always maintain a good resale value.
So the choice is yours. But if you want to feel home, trouble free, and live life like an adventure, I feel that my van might be a good choice for you. So if you’re interested, make me an offer, and tell me when and where would be the best for you, and we could start from there.
I personally plan to be climbing in Pantagonia (south Argentina) for dec-jan-feb. If I did not sell by then, probably back to Chile and maybe south Peru.
For any question, extra picture, send me an email with your request. (I have no phone sorry)

car

Hi there,

we are selling our car around santiago late this month or early next months. Check out the post in the forum for pictures.

The car is a Chevrolet Combo 2000 Diesel with currently 188k km and will have under 200km by the time it will be sold. All the paperwork is up to date, revison technica is due in May 2016 and the emission control is due this month (will be done), i think they last 6 months.

We bought it with 175k km just over two months ago, build a bed in the back, spend some money to keep it reliable (new waterpump, new cv seals, a new wheel bearing and a second spare wheel) and it was serviced twice so far.

The vehicle is very economic, on a 50l tank we get up to 800km.

It comes with:

raised bed frame for storage space underneath
foam matress
sheets
two pillows
woolen blanket
gas stove
2 pots, 1 pan, cutlery, chopping board, plates, cups, bowls, plastic containers
eski
two large storage boxes for underneath the bed
tools
two spare wheels
aux chord for the radio
two camping chairs
water canister
tub to wash dishes
magnetic led torch
Its a great car to travel, its cheap to run, its comfortable, you can pull up anywhere to sleep and it just looks like a parked car. It has two build in tables on the back doors, lots of storage: underneath, an "overhead locker" that serves us as a wardrobe and another overhead shelf thingy in the drivers cabin for bits and pieces, books, maps, etc. The bed can be accessed from the front seats.

We drove down, across, back, across again and up Chile and Argentina over highways, dirts roads (e.g. Carretera Austral) and even some creek crossings and never had a problem (apart from a couple of pinched tires). It has taken us everywhere we wanted to go. Obviously a 4WD makes the ride over bumps a little more comfortable and quicker, but it lacks the economy. Coming from Austrailia (with a lot of fourwheel driving) we came to the conclusion that a 4WD is not necessary if anyone plans to travel Argentina, Uruguay and Chile (we havent been to the rest yet, so we cant tell).

The price is 5000AUD or equivilant (2,6mio CLP 3650 USD 3350EUR).

In order to purchase this car, you will need an chilean RUT number, we can tell you how it works.

Contact us here or via email [email protected] (please dont get mad if it takes a couple of days longer to reply, we are still an the road and rely on WiFi).

cheers

van for sale in El chalten

This is an extensive copy paste of my add:

Have you ever dreamed to travel all the Americas? But not feeling to only go where all the tourist goes? I have a proposition for you!

Buy a cheaper vehicle, maybe have more trouble with it and/or a lot less living space, consume more fuel over the trip, and lower resale value, or buy my beautiful Panza Ganesha, save tones of fuel because of low Diesel price and low consumption, reliable so less maintenance, and always maintain a good resale value.

So the choice is yours. But if you want to feel home, trouble free, and live life like an adventure, I feel that my van might be a good choice for you. I was looking to get 11 111$ out of it, but will accept any good offer depending on the timing and location. So if you’re interested, make me an offer, and tell me when and where would be the best for you, and we could start from there.

I am currently located in El chalten, argentina until the beginning of febuary!
