Civilian 1987 Land Rover 110 6x6 - Perth, WA

A friend in Perth Western Australia is selling his 1987 Land Rover 110 6x6 Civilian model. These trucks were built with the 4bd1t Isuzu and LT95a transmission with a PTO running out the back to power the 3rd axle.

The civilians ones I know feature a normal size defender cab and front axle, unlike the military models. This vehicle is old enough for import and is in the same configuration as it was made. I believe the civilian ones have a galvinized chassis but im not 100% sure. Be aware that customs rulings in the past have shown that a 6x6 would get hit with the chicken tax, so it would be the 25% (or 20% not sure) duty, not the 2.5% we are used to for Land Rovers, but maybe there is an exemption for campers.

He has set the vehicle up for overlanding, but right now I do not have the specifics of what the setup is.

1987 Land Rover 110
-6x6
-LT95a
-Isuzu 4BD1T
-Camper/overland setup
-Civilain model
-Factory setup for australia

He is looking for $35,000AUD obo, and the vehicle is located just outside of Perth, Western Australia. I'm sure he can get it to port for anyone willing to make a deal. I can give the broker info whom I used to ship my 110 if potential buyers are interested, or I'm sure you could contact Doug for the feasibility of this.

Drop me a line if anyone is interested and I can give you the owners contact info.

I followed his build thread over the past couple years on Expedition Portal. Surprised he's selling it so shortly after completing it.

The current owner bought it from that guy, kinda surprised that it would change hands so quickly. From what I am told there is a lot more $$$ into this truck than the asking price.


The guy who built it intended taking the South Africa and driving across Africa to Europe but family dramas changed his mind and he sold it.It does have a gal chassis and is the same spec as the army 6x6. It has a front PTO winch and a rear15000lb electric winch, 3 air lockers a bash plate under the front and protective covers on 3 diffs. Afalse floor under the rear compartment has all the spares. HF codan radio UHF CB, dual electrical system, diffs are 4.7:1. It weighs 5 tonne.

The frame is original, and it is a galvinized frame, just like the military models. It has covered 105,000km and it is believed to be the original motor, even if it has been replaced it is a 4bd1t which is what came in it from the factory.

Indeed. The other one was apparently originally a tour bus. Now that you point that out, your truck has a completely different roof line. There are two of these civilian 6x6 campers roaming Oz.

There were two built as coaches. One was set up as a camera platform for the latest Mad Max movie. What happened to it after that I don't know A few of these were built as Fire fighting units with various Country Fire Authorities and a number as traybacks. A builder friend of mine had one which was one chassis number off mine. Thats how rare they are. He converted his to a dual cab. The civilian 6x6's have a standard defender cab whereas the military ones had a wider cab and front axle which makes parts for those bits harder to obtain. The chassis and drive train are the same.
