From time to time we try to bring you an interesting, historic, or unusual Land Rover we find for sale on the web. Today’s offering falls into the ‘interesting’ category. What we have here is a Land Rover Defender Custom Crew Cab built by Powerplay Racing in Colorado and Columbia Rovers of Oregon. Purists will probably want to steer clear, but those who like to tinker with their Land Rovers will surely appreciate the work and craftsmanship that has gone into this one-of-a-kind build. The listing features many more photographs and you can find a link to even more photos that show the original truck and the build process.
This 4.2-liter V8-powered crew cab Defender is registered in Colorado as a 1963 Series II pickup and has just 2,500 miles on the build.

At this time, the current bid is $25,100.00 (reserve not met) with a Buy It Now price of $115,000.00. An appraisal will be made available for a qualified buyer. The truck is located in Golden, Colorado.
