Government auctions can be a treasure trove of things if you are willing to comb through things and get lucky with time. Well if you were looking for a Land Rover, there might not be a better time to buy… especially if you are willing to consider a former military vehicle.
The Canadian government is currently auctioning off a 1997 Land Rover Wolf with a starting bid of $15,000 and just a mere 88,743km or approximately 55,000 miles. It actually doesn’t appear to be in too bad of a shape, and would probably not require much. This one is equipped with the 2.5 litre turbo diesel engine and a manual transmission with 4×4 of course. Someone from the government or military has identified the following problems: front grille damaged (appears to be light damage, repairable), wire hanging from dash, front seats are ripped, no seats in rear, drive side front panel and trim under both doors are dented (replacements easy to source), dirty interior, scratches and paint peeling on the exterior.
This one is running, will start and can be driven!
