Auction Block: 1998 Land Rover Defender 110 Camel Trophy Truck

May 21, 2021

Category: Rides

Certain vehicles are often associated with particular racing events. The Ford GT40 brings to mind Le Mans, the Lancia Stratos recalls the World Rally Championship, and Land Rover’s Defender conjures images of the Camel Trophy. The off-road competition has been defunct for two decades now, but Camel-competing Defenders remain as popular as ever, and you’re unlikely to find a cooler example than this one for sale at Collecting Cars.

This 1998 Land Rover Defender 110 Camel Trophy was one of just two built by Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations for the 1998 Tierra Del Fuego Camel Trophy, and it has lived quite the life. Following its participation in the event, the truck spent several years adventuring across Africa and Europe before landing a stint with a marine life conservation group in the UK. Though the odometer reads 162,998 miles, this Rover is in excellent shape, as it’s undergone a period-correct refurbishment to complement the remaining original parts. The chassis has been replaced entirely with a new OEM galvanized Marsland chassis, while the 2.5 L 300Tdi turbodiesel I4 engine is original. Also original are the Camel-specific roll bars and the trademark yellow paint job that proudly wears its battle scars. To place a bid on this accomplished Defender, head on over to Collecting Cars.

Purchase: $14,000+
