YAZTEC AUTOMOTIVE IS PROUD TO OFFER THIS EXTREMELY RARE 1982 RANGE ROVER CLASSIC 6X6 (TRUE 6 WHEEL DRIVE) FOR SALE. WE ACQUIRED THIS VEHICLE FROM LIQUIDATION OF A 300 CAR PRIVATE MUSEUM. THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD THE TRUCK FOR THE LAST 13 YEARS AND ONLY USED IT FOR SHOWS AND PARADES. WE WERE TOLD THAT THIS TRUCK CALLED THE "DESERT RUNNER" WAS CUSTOMBUILT BY "PANTHER WESTWINDS LTD" OF THE UNITED KINGDOM FOR A FORMER AMERICAN HEAVY WEIGHT BOXING CHAMPION AT A COST OVER $250,000.00. YOU CAN GOOGLE THEIR NAME AND SEE ALL THEIR CONVERSIONS. THE TRUCK IS IN MINT CONDITION, HAS ONLY 1,027 MILES, NEVER DRIVEN OFF ROAD AND SPENT ITS ENTIRE LIFE IN CLIMATE CONTROLLED FACILITIES. WE HAVE ONLY DRIVEN THE TRUCK AROUND THE BLOCK. THE ALL TIME 4WD WORKS AND A LEVER ENGAGES THE 3RD AXLE TO MAKE IT A 6WD. PLEASE DO NOT ASK IF WE HAVE TAKEN IT OFF ROAD AND HOW IT PERFORMS? THIS IS A RARE, LOW MILEAGE TRUCK THAT HAVE BEEN USED MOSTLY FOR SHOWS AND PARADES AND CAN NOT BE DUPLICATED FOR LESS THAN $250,000.00.
