Crazy 6x6 Defender sighting

Saw this while at the car wash in highland park. Never seen anything like it. Couldn't get a picture of the front since it was inside a locked gate. It looks like a 130 to me.

I was wondering how the hell that got in with a perkins under the hood but he explains its been here for years in Nevada. Maybe it just me but that thing is calling my name. What kills it for me is that the 3rd axle isn't driven and the perkins, and the part where I have no business buying anymore defenders until I get rid of something first.

Very rare opportunity to buy a highly unusual much modified dirt killer.After years of fun,i m putting my baby for sale.This truck was a built at enormous cost,it was originally a 127 extended to 150,and incorporated a third non driven axle,the middle axle is fitted with a Detroit automatic diff lock,and all wheels are braked.The engine is a Perkins phaser,4L turbo diesel,4 cylinders,20MPG,engine is mated to the v8 manual gearbox,coupled to a disco high ratio transfer box.
right hand drive of course,much more fun,front mounted Warn M 10000 electric winch.
as you can see this beauty as very,very little rust compare to an average 1984,bulk heads are perfect,cross members as well,at this stage of life this truck can easily do another 5 to 10 years without any needs depending on location,the only rust i found are from the bolts of the hinges,and at bottom of doors,chassis could get clean up and protected as well.
but those options will be yours,have fun for a few years then take him to the body shop.
Very solid tow truck as well,great torque,it was register in Nevada and has been non op for 2 years,it runs like a champ as i still use it on my private land for towing.
i took this baby in many surf trips across central & latin america,in all kinds of terrains,deserts and mountains back in the days.there s no places it won t take you.
This machine was design for the adventurer,the seeker,the restless,hopefully it stays that way and won t end up for poseurs in city...happy bidding

Certainly. It is not a straightforward thing to achieve drive to the rear axle and I'm pretty sure that is beyond whoever made this thing. If you wanted it to work off road, you need a completely different type of rear suspension.
