    Default What is this?

    I want one of these. This is the 7th one to arrive through the Port of Savannah in the last 60 days. Right hand drives. Straight six diesel engines. Manual transmissions. Winches on all. Shipped for individuals not businesses... This one is the first hard shell that I have seen. The others were canvas covered beds with troop seats. 6 x 6 and only slightly larger that CUCVs.

    Six wheel Land Rover Defender/Perentie. Kinda looks like an ambulance pod. Interesting logo on side.201d5eecee774eadfe51117e49ddd478.jpg

    6x6 Defenders are super cool. Pick one up for me!

    Thanks guys. You were great help! Now I must track down the point of origins on these rigs. They are arriving on Ro-Ro ships having come through the Panama Canal.

    Here you go. https://www.australianfrontlinemachi...es/land-rovers no idea about registering to bid, but I have some fellow armor enthusiast friends down under that may be able to help. Australia also has a sight similar to our Craigslist called gumtree, sometimes cool stuff pops up on there. I’d love to get a big Australian military Mack truck, but shipping would be a killer.

    The units that I have been looking at lately are running about $3,000 on direct ship RO-RO transports to Savannah. Meaning, once loaded, they remain on the same ship and they are driven on and driven off the ship. No forking or lifting

    I’m curious about the going price for one of these in the ‘States. Standard 4x4 Defenders don’t come cheap so what do they want for one of the 6x6 beasts?

    I don't think that's a logo. It looks like the red cross decal was peeled off and it shows that the truck was painted a different color scheme after the decal had been put on it so you're seeing the original paint colors. With that enclosed bed it would seem to make a great fishing and hunting truck.....


    Thanks
