I hope you put the right glass in, and not the privacy glass.

Is the damage from the camel trophy or from it being towed later in life?

If I'm correct, mostly towing, as a fellow said he remembered earlier.

So fixing it won't really affect its heritage. That's good.

So, speaking of heritage, what would happen if a body swap took place? The windscreen frame is probably damaged to the point of a real one not fitting and the door frames and rear section crushed to the point of glass probably not fitting and the rear door not sealing (since it is ajar in every photo thus far). If you transfer wiring, dash, rolling chassis (assuming its good), and all accessories over to an American donor body, what would this do to value?

I agree with Jeff- once a 'donor' is used, it will become the donor. However, if you have ever dealt with the CTOC, they know every original scratch, dent, etc- quite amazing actually. That being said, with the story this truck has, and it being done by a participant of the CT, there is no precedent. To some it would be worth a tidy sum, to others not much at all- finicky crowd. And before all the sneering, yes I am a member, and watch this on a regular basis world wide...
Like I said, enjoy her as long as you want, then let her go. If gotten weather tight and mechanically sound, the value won't change while you have a rare bird with a rarer story line. The real value is in a bigger market outside the States, but no title is a tuffy too. To max the value Stateside, keep it until 25 year rule kicks in, then it becomes a legit driver, regardless of condition.
Bottom line: his toy, very well bought, endless options, and I wish him all the best!!

I looked at some old pictures I had. Seems like I rode around with Bob Burns in that truck before it was damaged when being towed. At one of the Camel trophy selections in Grand Junction, CO. I was not a participant. but I drove out there to check it all out, many years ago.

Maybe you want to trade for a 25 year old defender Mr. Winky. (Sure glad Ron left the "T" out of his rant) I might like to own that thing.
Ha ha ha.

Yup. Some real jealous little whiners in this thread.

To the new owner: congrats on your find. I hope you keep it, but if you don't, I hope you sell it for a huge profit.

The CT Disco will go to a great home (actually after ready the story probably the right home) and you will get a nice Defender.

Mr Winky/Telluride - make the trade with Pendy - enjoy another cool Land Rover that you can do as you like without getting crucified and keep chilling here on D90 - you seem like you have the thick skin already and have been real cool showing/sharing the CT Disco.

I'd be honored to see some of them pictures. As everyone else, I am curious about where the truck came from and it's story filled in as best as possible.

All good boys. He seems nice and maybe I was a little odd to him using those darn emoticons. I've been offered a pretty penny, but I still want the right documents to go with it. I'm honest about my sales and don't want it coming back to me one day.

Maybe so. Damaged or not, 10,000 hard miles is still very little my RRC has 230,000 BRUTAL MILES! I couldn't buy a new 4x4 ready to go that cheap. My goal is to grab a new windscreen tomorrow and side glass, install my caliper, take it up the hills during summer, and get the correct documentation/ info on it here in a few weeks, so it's good to go for the next person and they know what they are getting.

The pictures are pre digital age. But I will work on a way to share it.

If you have some serious collectors hounding you about a purchase, I wish you the best of luck and hope you get to enjoy your time with it. You ought to run it up to 21 road and put it through its paces one last time before it becomes a museum piece somewhere.

Yes completely agree with this.

Yeah, there is a place you can send your photos and they put them into digital form for you.

They can hound, but I want it to at least roll, so there is no danger of it breaking something even more, at least. And I spent a 100$ on the heritage report, so I'm gonna make sure it is the real deal....lol

Just for brevity's sake, lay the pictures down and take a digi picture of the old picture.

If they are all curled up, lay em under glass---turn the flash off.


Nice score tohelluride, you got it for $1500?

I'd give you $1600?!

With that said, what if most of the damage is post CT, as it is in this case. Most of the brutal damage was not from flipping in the mud, sinking in a river, or sliding into a tree. From the video, the US truck wasnt damaged all that much (unlike the Dutch truck, I believe). Almost all of the damage came from a bad towing experience, unrelated to the actual event. Im not thinking that that adds to its heritage, right?

Its not hate on my part. I wish I had gotten ahold of the seller first but I didnt. No big deal. Im more with the latter part of what you said. Itll get flipped and probably disappear (again).
