1985 Land Rover 90, LHD Camel edition $ 14,500

Recently I came across this 100% original Camel Trophy edition, nothing spoiled, nothing added, just the same as when it left the factory 31 years ago.

During the early years (as far as I know only in 1983 and in 1985) of the Camel Trophy, Land Rover also had a limited Camel edition in their delivery program. Raised air intake, double spare, bull bar and extra lights where standard and of course the special Camel color with black striping. Donít think they sold a lot because you hardly see them.

The one here for sale is one of these though. It was sold new in 1985 in The Netherlands and that is where I found it. It has the non-turbo diesel engine. Just to be clear, it never participated in the Camel Trophy.

The car is in really good shape, all original and a very nice driver. Has an overhauled engine and transmission which you can tell when driving. One of the better driving NA diesels.

The Good:
  • Frame, very good, all solid, no rust, newer rear cross member.
  • Body, original paint, nice patina. Hardly any aluminum corrosion, one small dent above LH wheel arch. Some scratches left and right as you might expect from a 30 year old car
  • Bulkhead, corners under window no rust, never welded.
  • Engine, easy starter, hardly smokes. Overhauled in 2013 as said by previous owner. No paper work to back this up but it runs so nice that I have no reason not to believe this.
  • Transmission, easy shifting no weird noises. Replaced in 2014, also no papers to proof but no reason to doubt either.
  • Interior, nice original seats, inward faces benches in the back
  • Headliner ok, needs to be cleaned and can use some new plugs.
  • Brakes, suspension all fine.
  • Power steering working fine.
  • Tires BF Goodrich Mud Terain, 80-90%
  • Brand new exhaust will be installed this week.
  • Odometer shows 238 K kmís which is appr 150 K miles, the Dutch equivalent of Carfax shows this is most likely correct. (they never give a 100% guarantee and this is the highest rating you can get)
  • Radio-CD player (didn't check if it was working)
  • door pillars solid, one side is painted.

The Bad:
  • Both foot wells repaired, it works but not a really nice job, see pictures
  • All door frames have some rust. I have seen better, I have seen worse. Only the bottom rail though and if you have a welder (and know what to do) not a big job to replace. The door skin is in really good shape
  • Wheels.. hmmmm, I donít like them. Alloy but they have some oxidation. Please replace them with original steels if you buy this.
  • Some surface rust on bull bar
  • No mats or tunnel cover
  • Both spares on normal steel wheels but also smaller size.
  • No seat belts in the back (didnít exist back then)
  • The pictures I took of the frame didn't turn out, so can't list them here.

This car is located in The Netherlands and as I am not shipping it to my place in Michigan in the near future, I am offering it from there.

Price includes transport to the east coast, import duties and all fees. Also includes all the documents you need to obtain a title in your state. I will help you through the proces of import and can arrange shipping from the port to your door against additional costs.



Payment: $ 2,500 as a deposit, balance direct after it passes customs and before delivery to your place.

A unique Camel Trophy Edition sold in Netherlands explains a few things.
This one down in Italy came up as a truck shipped to a Netherlands dealer in 1985
so despite the sellers assertions that it was a real Camel Trophy we passed on it.
Makes sense now. Your trucks sister is listed here for twice the money. Me trying to
convince Torsten that he didn't have a contestant truck didn't work.

I agree with you. The real Trophy cars had roll cages, internal and external. The ones sold by dealers didn't. The one you found in Italy has a roll cage but clearly a home made.
