La Aduana: Camel Trophy Defender 110


For many people the Camel Trophy competition was the pinnacle of four wheel drive adventure. It was something that captivated us, inspired us, and stirred us up to get out there and see the world. If you dream of navigating a Sandglow Yellow Land Rover Defender through the jungles of the Amazon than this just might be your chance. With a simple 300tdi diesel engine that has covered only 46,000 miles this 1987 Defender is ready to take you on almost any adventure you ask it. This Defender was recently refreshed with brand new shocks, springs, suspension bushings, driveshafts and even a galvanized frame to top things off.
