Nope, Defender....but just the frame, the rest (suspension mounts etc etc) chopped off and new axles, arms, free floating springs etc added.

If it is not having a mud bath he just throws it at rocks and off cliffs......Mad bugger !

All thick wall tube under the body work.....which is green plastic chemical barrels cut to fit and riveted on !
