1990 2 door disco

Postby muddyplumber » Tue Nov 26, 2013 7:51 pm

Picked this thing up today, got it sight un seen and extremely cheap. Bloody stoked with it, has been really well set up

This truck has come from the UK and I noticed that when I got it home some of the paint is coming off and the truck is the camel trophy yellow underneath it

A fella brought it over from the UK to tourer round NZ, then left it here and went back home.
The truck is abit of a mystery, it seems like its a really good copy of a camel trophy truck with afew extras thrown in. Has a diesel powered heating system, all the bash guards, roof rack, internal cage, snorkel, up graded shock towers, navagation system and was made in 1990 and was the yellow colour that someone has painted British green..

I can't find the sticker :roll: . I found one when you open the bonnet but where it says paint colour it's blank...some of the details off the tag say 01702T and SALLJGBF7GA448798 not sure if these details mean anything to anyone?
