1998 LAND ROVER DEFENDER 110 CAMEL TROPHY

KEY FACTS

  • Understood to be one of two examples built by the Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations team for the 1998 Tierra Del Fuego Camel Trophy event.
  • Under the bonnet is the 2.5-litre 300tdi turbodiesel inline-four, coupled with the five-speed manual transmission.
  • It has recently undergone a full rebuild with genuine Land Rover parts, now presenting in very good order throughout.
  • Following the 1998 Camel Trophy event, the car travelled around Africa and Europe, before arriving in the UK and taking on a support role with the Marine Life Conservation group.

EQUIPMENT AND OPTIONS

  • It features twin fuel tanks, Mantec steering and fuel tank guards, a Warn winch, a Brownchurch bull bar, Hella spot lights, a twin battery setup and the correct fitment Michelin XZL tyres.
  • There is an internal roll bar and external roll cage built by Safety Devices, and installed by Land Rover specifically for the Camel Trophy event.
  • The Land Rover now has a renewed and galvanised Marsland chassis.
  • A re-galvanised and powder-coated roof rack was built to order from Brownchurch Ltd to replace the missing original.
  • The cabin is equipped with heat and sound insulation, a period-correct stereo, a map light and a passenger footwell-mounted washer bottle.
  • A small collection of paperwork will accompany the vehicle.

CONDITION

  • Original bodywork and yellow paintwork, which now features some light dents, scuffs and scratches, entirely commensurate with off-road use.
  • Period-correct decals are present and correct, and have an attractive patina.
  • Sympathetically restored grey cloth seats, which are slightly discoloured but with no significant damage. There are a few surface blemishes to the dashboard, dials and main contact points.
  • No electrical faults have been detected.
  • The most recent MOT test was on 6 November 2020 at 162,998 miles, which was a clean pass with no advisories or defects.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • A period-correct refurbishment has been carried out, including the fitment of a new OEM galvanised Marsland chassis, along with a genuine, unused replacement bulkhead unit.
  • The entire braking system was replaced, along with the gearbox, clutch and running gear.
  • All chassis components have been replaced, right down to the nuts, bolts and washers, and it now features new OEM shock absorbers, springs and helper springs.
  • Its last scheduled maintenance was undertaken in November 2020 at 162,190 miles, where technicians at Foley Specialist Vehicles in Harlow changed all of the fluids and filters – with genuine OEM Land Rover service items - before replacing the cambelt.
