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.
