You are in Spain ?

The cheapest and easier to fix is a land rover santana series 3. They are available from 500 eu, and you can updated the vehicle for an overland with cheap parts from junkyards --at the same time you get familiar with the machine-- (extra military tank, H.D. parabollocks, rear differential.. etc..)
a good used 2500cc engine cost only 400 eu.

Good luck !

Save yourself all the hassle - we are driving south to Cape Town in our 1983 Range Rover and will be selling it for about 2500 euro fully kitted and ready to go. If you want full details email me at richardquarry@yahoo.com

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
