Footloose 4x4 have got a couple on their books. They are all privately owned, were originally kitted out by Footloose and have now returned from their respective expeditions. I would ask them for the asking price and then make an offer.

Contact them on 01780 784781 www.footloose4x4.com sales@footloose4x4.com

I came across a Camel Trophy Defender (P Reg 300 Tdi) on ebay the other day. Item number is 4598590351. Not cheap though . . .

Hi George
Although its not a landy, I am sadly having to put my HJ60 Landcruiser on the market within the next few days. Just have some work to do for mot (I welding a couple of sills on), then it'll have a fresh 12 month MOT too.
It was used for our trip to the Hoggar, etc in Jan/ Feb 2005 and found, as advised, it out performed a 110, which was going to be my first choice for a vehicle.

I've not quite prepared a 'for sale' advert yet, but you can get a glimpse on gallery pages starting on http://rudge.me.uk/gallery/Algeria_trip?page=1
It is the red vehicle.

email me on chris@rudge.me.uk if you have an interest, and we can go from there.
Take care... Chris

Hi George,

It could be your lucky day as we've got a fully kitted out red K reg 300 Tdi 110 ready to go right now. I've looked after her really well (and am very sorry to let her go), have full records and she runs like a beauty. Fully kitted out packing system, tent, awning, underbody protection, the works. Drop me a line on where_is_paul_now@yahoo.co.uk

Paul

Hi George

Why buy a cramped 110 or sleep in a soggy roof tent? :-) Ok I’m trying to sell you 127 V8 Landrover Ambulance converted to an expedition camper van – just as able off road as a 110 and you get to live in luxury during your trips away…
More info at http://www.delphigraphics.co.uk/land...ndrover127.htm
Cheers
Hugh

Dear Hugh,

Thanks very much for the post - looks awesome. However petrol is not ideal and neither is 19mpg with a light foot! Thanks for the offer though.

George
