Land Rover Defender off road Challenge Truck

Sellers Comments - PUJ 1986 ex mod 2.5 Diesel 300Tdi Never thought this day would come but I’m selling my baby!😢 I’ve owned this Land Rover for around 15 years & had absolutely the best of times in it from racing the Outback Challenge in Morocco, Tay Forest Challenge, Croatia Trophy, Transylvania Trophy, Rainforest Spain, GRAF Adventure series, AWDC Howling Wolf, King of the valleys, through to the Welsh Xtreme & many many more!!!! Started life as a 2.5 n/a diesel direct from the MOD & I used it for everyday running around, then I competed in the old AWDC series in conjunction with Scorpion Racing in 2006 winning 6 rounds & the championship in standard class. Then I was invited to compete the Outback Challenge Morocco 🇲🇦& a full rebuild began including converting to 300 Tdi & R380 gearbox, external cage, wing bars & change of colour.....& tweeked many times since. Current spec.. Low mileage 300 Tdi with hybrid turbo, injection pump from a 2.8 TGV & tuned. R380 Defender gearbox. Ashcroft ATB transfer box X-ENG disc handbrake Wide angle, wide slip HD propshafts . Ashcroft lockers, shafts, cvs in pegged diff casings & Challenger 4x4 bolt on diff housings. HD Ashcroft 4.1:1 diff ratio Terrafirma extreme pro-sport suspension with hydraulic bump stop mounts. 15” Rockathon beadlock wheels with 35-11.5-15 Simex tyres x5. 100” wheel base with standard bush mounts and extended rear arms & A-frame. Qt radius arms Gwyn Lewis hydro assist HD steering bars & guards HD tank guard 4 point harnesses CNC fiddle brakes with twin rear calipers. ARB compressor HD ARB air lines Plus many other minor bits too many to list, everything about this car was built Heavy Duty to compete in some of the toughest events in Europe. All wiring for winches & freespool is there...front & rear , isolators & kill switches...winches were taken off for my newer car & batteries were dead! Had new head gasket & cam belt + idlers before hibernating. Occasionally I’ll put a battery on & she starts up lovely. Been standing for 3 years under my carport now (dry) so I’m finally admitting its time for PUJ to move on. Needs a good service & clean up, fit new batteries & some winches & ready to compete. PS.... The doors are battered and I will be keeping them as souvenirs to hang on my workshop wall!! I do have the log book/V5 Viewing is more than welcome by appointment, evenings & weekends in Camberley, Surrey
