You Could Own This British Special Forces ‘Pink Panther’ Land Rover

In 1968, the British Ministry of Defense contracted Land Rover to build 72 Series 2A Defenders specifically for the use of the Special Air Service. Made for long-range desert patrols, these mil-spec vehicles were all painted light pink (an especially effective color for desert camouflage) and came to be known as “Pinkes” or “Pink Panthers.” Only 20 are said to survive to this day and now one of them is up for sale.

As you can tell from even the most cursory of glances, this iconic 4×4 is in remarkably original condition. In fact, since it was released from the military in 1986, it’s been cared for by the sellers at P.A. Blanchard & Co. Along with the tail-mounted canvas bag, jerry cans, spotlights, and what looks like a survey tripod, the sale also includes copies of the original handbook and copy part book. This military legend can be yours now for $82,600.

Purchase: $82,600
