Post #3 of 10
Thanks for your well-considered and detailed reply. I have also posted the same question on the Mexico Branch of lonelyplanet.com's Thorntree, at http://thorntree.lonelyplanet.com/...arentid=0&from=1, where I post under the handle "Anonimo".
I checked the ad, and it is, indeed, a Ford 2000 E350 Box Cargo truck. There's a picture of one at http://www.turbosquid.com/...0C33EC8.jpgLarge.jpg
I don't know if the frame is/was stretched, I was assuming that they were manufactured as is. (There were 3 available on that dealer's lot. $8,900 asking price
Our load total is not all that great, but due to bulky items, won't fit in our present vehicles. We have thought of buying an enclosed cargo trailer, but we don't consider either of our present vehicles adeqquate to the distancee nor the task.
In regard to selling it in Mexico, that idea has popped up on the Thorn Tree Mexico Board as well. My understanding was that it was illegal to sell a US plated vehicle in Mexico. Now, some helpful posters have suggested that if one were to pay the import duties on the vehicle, it would then be legally saleable in Mexico.(If it were more than 10 years old-it isn't)
Your opinions on this, and that of others on Mexconnect are appreciated. I'd like to have an opinion from Jennifer Rose, if she reads this.
