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

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.

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 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

Yea, shipping overseas isn't as bad as you would think. I recently did a quote for a potential customer on a M1083 5 ton LMTV from pearl harbor to miami for $4,000. The customer thought that was too high. Pfft.

The range for the 6 x 6 units have been between $12,000 to $48,000. As for getting them to the port, I have no idea. The only info I have is on the paperwork arriving Savannah from port of departure. These were all delivered in the 90s and the last ones were built in 1998. The engines are 3.9L. The cargo carriers are rated 2-tonnes (imperial) off road which translates to just shy of a deuce and a half at 2.4 US tons. There are single and double axle trailers to go with them.

Yep. But, I am playing far less in the bees these days and spending much more time appreciating some old truck. Both bees and trucks can bite and sting but I am favoring the trucks more lately. I recently let a local guy finally talk me out of the last one of the two M818s that you pulled out of Wright-Patterson for me 7/8 years ago. He bought it with my last M127A1C stake side trailer as well.

The Land Rover Perenties were trucks that were crated in the UK and assembled in Australia which makes Australia the country of origin. They come with a galvanized chassis and all have the Isuzu 4BD1 or 4BD1-T (turbo) engines. These engines are an Isuzu copy of the Cummins 4BT and run fantastically. The trucks themselves are all 24 volt as far as I know and Right Hand Drive.

There are a few Perentie owners groups and whatnot on Facebook if you are looking to nab one.
