1984 Camel Trophy 110 LHD

1984 Camel Trophy 110 LHD

Time to move on after owning this CT 110 for 7 years...

This is a 100% authentic Camel Trophy 110. An actual race vehicle (not support). This 110 was driven during the 1984 Brazil event by one of the German teams (Volker Lapp and Dr. Ulrich Schum). Volker Lapp owns an expedition service company (trailers etc.) so he was very easy to track down. He helped to verify the history and authenticity of this vehicle. With his pictures from the event, we were able to verify and trace back every dent on this vehicle.

The authenticity of this vehicle is also backed up by a British Heritage certificate. Which states that the vehicle was returned to Lode Lane Factory, and dispatched to R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Brazil.

Some of the Camel Trophy modifications for that specific year:
• As the heritage certificate shows, the vehicle rolled of the line with a 2.25 diesel. At Lode Lane Factory, they were upgraded with a 2.5 NA
• Dual fuel tank set up under passenger seat
• The obvious roof rack and CT brush guard
• Warn 8274 winch
• Battery Cut of switch
• No roll cages were used prior to the 1985 event. I believe it was the Belgians who rolled a car during the 1984 event, and from that moment on, roll cages were introduced for future events. Therefore, this 110 does not have a roll cage. Which is authentic to its year.

As to this specific vehicle:

The good:
• 100% authentic. Even all the stickers are original to the event. Which you can tell by how they faded.
• Mileage, the vehicle shows less than 90,000 km.
• The dents, this might seem weird, but I think it’s great that all the dents were able to be traced back to the event, and were never fixed.
• Winch is fully operational with new solenoids. Although I definitely wouldn’t trust the original winch cable again.
• Since it was a German team vehicle, it’s LHD
• Both spare tires still have the original XCL (which I think is neat from an authenticity aspect)
• Imported by Doug Crowther

The bad:
• As most Land Rovers of that age, there is a significant amount of rust, I tried to document it as good as possible in the pictures. Door bottoms/ driver and passenger foot wells are shot. One of the outriggers on the chassis has been replaced, which was accompanied by a patch on the chassis. And there is a hole in the battery box.
• After the event, someone installed a heater. I removed it, and covered the hole with an aluminum plate.
• Driver seat cushion was shot. Replacement does not match the original interior 100%
• No headliner

Asking price: $65,000

If interested, I will provide you with an email introduction to Volker, it’s been a while since I talked to him. But he was very happy to see current pictures of the car he once raced in Brazil.

Awesome! Wish I could have seen this in person. Belongs in a museum or collector's garage! Best of luck with the sale, I know you hate to see that go.

Thank you for the positive comments!

I added a picture which is a scan from the drivers photo album.
This was one of the methods used to determine the originality of the vehicle above.

Max! I hate to see it go. That's an awesome truck man. I remember looking at it up close at Mountain Lake a few years ago.

A good amount of interest, but the Camel is still available.

Some of the common questions I want to address here:

-I do not have the front and rear Camel Trophy plate. Those stayed with the drivers after the race.

-The Virginia inspection expired a while ago.
I have ignored the inspection since the Camel is garaged 4 hours away from where I live. And it only sees very rare mileage in the neighborhood to get the oil flowing. I’ll get an updated Virginia inspection if requested by the buyer.

A true collectable at a really great price. I have one with 40K miles on it. 1984 Driven by the Italian team. I paid far more than that for it.
Good luck with the sale. Someone will get a piece of history.

Max - I have a batch of both the front & rear plates inbound, in the various font colors (black/blue/green). Manufactured by the company that did them originally for the Camel Trophy events, and are the identical size/specs as the original fronts and rears.

What's the price point Jason? Might be interested in a set.

Beautiful! Thank you for sharing. So you have a 50% chance of having the winning truck that year...

Good to know, thank you. I have a replica front sign in black (which as you can see from Mark's picture is not the right color). Never found the smaller back plates, so thank you for doing a run on these, I'll send you a text later today.

That's got to be one of the coolest trucks around. You should try and sell it to a Land Rover Dealer in a high class area to put in their showroom!

May I ask why you are selling?

Very nice truck, and GLWS.

If I had a Camel, I would arrange a static display at my dealer right around when (if) new Defender arrives. Think brass poles and velvet ropes around it...

Thank you,

I'm selling the Camel because I realized that I don't have the room and funds for 2 110's.
Seeing these LS/ 2.8 Cummins builds makes me want to build my own 110 with a modern engine, which I can modify exactly to my needs/ wishes.

The Camel just doesn't see any mileage (hence why the VA state inspection is so old).
I know I'll eventually regret selling this Camel, since it is so unique and rare. But I'll also regret not building my own personalized 110...
