Wish I could buy both your 40 and your 45 if you go that route

Diesel, LHD, legal to import NOW, longer wheelbase...throw some links under this with coilovers and we have a winner. In this scenario, I would sell my 45 and the 40, but keep the PTO and cable lockers to swap out with the Bandy's stuff. Will be contacting my Brazilian buddy about this one asap.
Only if you promise to keep that spare tire cover.

Very cool. I'm sure your 40 would sell with the quickness, even without the cable locking goodies or PTO bits...

What about a 4runner or a Sequoia? Two different size rigs but they both hold up well. I like the Troopie, I think that is what it is, but that tire cover has to go. You can use it as an oil drip pan.

That rig does look very nice.

It's not a troopie, it's a mid wheelbase bandeirante. It's stretched about 18" but with no rear overhang like the troopies. I need to look up the wheelbase on those, but I know from my 45 that the extra length really reduces the bouncing effect going down the road. Seller says it has a 14B engine in it, but refuses to send pics....hmmm....

IIRC, the 14B is the larger displacement version of what I have, but with an indirect injection head, and a rotary pump.

How do you get it to the states? Do you fly down there and drive it back??

All the way through C.A.??? Heck no. Same way I got all the diesels in from Japan, container shipping. The trick is finding someone you trust to drop it at the shipping hub. Always a bit tricky there, but mud usually has some friendly people networked together. I'm still trying to work out the currency conversion though to understand what he wants for it. Says $R 49.000
It's a period, and not a comma. I thought rio was on the Euro, but I think the R means it's the local currency. If you take that . as a , and convert from Rio to USD, it's pushing $30k!! Ack...not going to happen if that's the case. Portuguese is a hard language to translate too, so in talking with him, it's much harder to understand than straight up Spanish.

I really want the 4 door, but it's not for sale.

The "." is a comma. That's how most of the rest of the world does it. Those things are super expensive down there still, so 30k wouldn't surprise me. Imports & exports with. Brazil can be tricky & expensive too, so that doesn't help much either.

Well, it is super clean, and diesel. It does have the 14B, though not turbo, is direct injected and actually has as much torque as my turbo 13BT. Doubt my 40 would sell for $30k though, and as you mentioned, I would still have shipping, customs, etc. Those fees add up quick. You can figure at least another $3k in fees/shipping for something that large. Driving it back would be fun, but not really. Lot of sketchy countries along the way and I'm pretty gringo.
