Base Vehicle Sourced

The vehicle build should be starting soon!  Patterson’s Off-Road have now sourced a base vehicle. We’ve opted for a 1990 Defender 110 as it will be 25 years old in 2015 which will make it a classic vehicle in the US and therefore tax-free. That opens the door to exporting it to the US after the expedition, either for personal use or to sell.

The base vehicle will be fitted with a new galvanised chassis, a new bulkhead, a reconditioned 300TDi engine and gearbox and all of the goodies on my spec list to prepare it for the overland expedition in 2014.

I’ll post photos as soon as soon as they arrive.
