1983 HCPU 110 Lara Croft clone

Every effort has been employed to make this as accurate a recreation as possible! We started with a RHD HCPU with only 60k miles! The vehicle was disassembled, chassis/axles sand blasted and acid etched primed/painted. The entire body (individual panels hung and painted) was painted Bonatti Gray before reassembly. A later Discovery front axle was utilized for the LHD conversion, with new brakes, bushings, etc. The exocage, sliders, sand ladder mounts, and front bumper were custom made by RTE engineering - replicating the original but with greatly improved quality - and tied into the frame at multiple locations. Lastly, a fresh 3.5 V-8 with AUTOMATIC transmission was fitted, as were Corbeau seats - again, as per original. Seats can be added to the bed for a great one-of-a-kind beach vehicle, or as a true workhorse - as originally designed - even a soft top can be added for year round enjoyment!!
$29,950

By far, this is the best and most accurate individual recreation of the original Laura Croft Tomb Raider 110 that I have seen to date!

Just put two and two together with Dale. I imported this truck for Julian Kotting back in 2008. He came over for an ROAV event @ Pearls Pond with his partner and then left the truck with me after his US visit for a year or so. It ended up going to forum member Neil Steinhagen up in Ct who sold it to the arborist guy who then sold it to Dale.
I always wondered what had become of that one. Cheers on the transformation Dale.

Thanks Matt and Doug- great truck originally and currently!!

If the auction goes south (always possible with fleabay), I may remove cage and boxes, add a s/t p/u cab with hood over bed. It is likely the most versatile Defender configuration- adult erector set!!

Incredible rendition. Would love to pull into the range with my HK Match!

Can that truck be registered in Calif?

Thanks guys!

I assume it can be registered in Cali, but am no expert as to their laws, sorry. We have sold several trucks to Cali buyers and never had an issue if that helps.
