"Naija" - 1996 Land Rover Defender 110 CSW 300Tdi
 
10 Attachment(s)
South African Registered, but currently in France.

Long interesting history:

Used by South African High Commission in Lagos, NIGERIA from new until 2010, after which I purchased it and drove it down to Cape Town.

After importing and putting through roadworthy, I drove it all the way to Europe - this took 2 years and included some accidents and lots of corruption - busy writing a book about it, called More Manic Missions.

I don't really want to sell her, but I have no money and cannot leave her in France indefinately.

Ideally I am looking for an interested party to drive her back to Southern Africa for me.

There is no carnet required:thumbup1: (stick to Western Route) and when you're done in South Africa there is no need for import or carnet deposits etc.

The car needs a new clutch:thumbdown: - estimated cost 650 Euro including fitment.

The car is full of overlanding equipment and a library of travel books :Dand maps for all of west africa.

I would want a deposit ?c?to let someone take the car and I would refund 50% of that deposit once it arrives in one piece in Southern Africa.

For more details, please email me:

The Deposit is negotiable, otherwise an outright sale is also possible.

Make me an offer that is acceptable and I may just give her up!

Very Interested
 
Hi David,

Both the offer and the car are extremely interesting. I and another plan to drive from the uk/ europe to south africa next year and are looking for a vehicle whilst trying to keep costs low.

Is there a specific date that you would want her in SA by?

thanks
Dan

Hey Dan
2013 would be good.
Though I would prefer a previous/current Land Rover owner to do the voyage = and based on your posts regarding Toyotas, perhaps a Landcruiser is a better (though more costly) option for you?

:DI have decided to fetch my Landy in May, and drive it to Eastern Europe, where I will leave it for another 6 months until I can afford the next journey.

As to where I will leave her, so far it's looking like the Moto Camp in Bulgaria, or a friend in Romania.
Cannot leave it in Turkey without a lot of hassle from customs.

If anyone knows a cheap place for insurance of RHD non European vehicles, please let me know.

Allessi have quoted me a 3rd party cover only figure worth more than the car!:thumbdown:
