Classic Land Rover fans were thrilled to learn about the iconic ex-Camel Trophy 1991 Land Rover Defender 110 that went up for auction last week. A right-hand drive model, the Defender 110 was originally used as a communications vehicle during the 1991 Tanzania-Burundi Camel Trophy tour. The truck made its way around Europe after attending various other off-roading events as well as becoming part of an off-road school fleet before being imported to the United States by the current seller last year.
The vehicle had its axles overhauled, the timing belt replaced, and the braking and suspension systems refreshed. Under the hood was a 2.5-liter turbodiesel inline-four engine working in tandem with a five-speed manual transmission with a two-speed transfer case.
The Defender was sold equipped with a Garrett turbocharger, a Jetlock handbrake system, a roof basket, a snorkel, a brush guard, a roll cage, Hella driving lights, recovery tools, a CB radio, front bucket seats, and 16-inch steel wheels. The classic Defender 110 sold for $127,000 USD according to Bring a Trailer.
