JUST weeks after we announced Glenn Kelly from Perth as the winner of the 4X4 Australia giveaway Project Hilux, the one-of-a-kind tourer has been put up for sale on Gumtree.
The Hilux, valued at $55,000, was listed on Gumtree with a bargain sale price of $40,000 (negotiable).
“It is with deepest regret that I will be advertising the vehicle for sale,” Glenn told 4X4 Australia. “Unfortunately I was unable to take it out and introduce it to Western Australia via off-road tracks, but I hope whoever buys it can.”
The pristine Hilux, registered until February 2017, will be sold with all of the aftermarket goodies we added during its massive build. Extras, fitted by the best in the aftermarket industry, include gear from Terrain Tamer, Flashlube, TJM 4x4, Mean Mother, Lightforce, TJM Airport West, Cooper Tires, EFS Suspension, Ironman 4x4, Ontrack Automotive, Marks 4WD, MSA 4x4 Accessories, HEMA Maps, DPChip, Piranha Offroad Products, Harrop Engineering, Opposite Lock and MaxTrax.
Glenn flew in from Perth early in August to claim his prize, and he drove it back across the Nullarbor for his first – and only – touring adventure with the ’Lux.
Glenn added: “I wish to thank everyone at 4X4 Australia for your time and effort. I will be waiting for the next exciting edition of 4X4 Australia to arrive in my letterbox.”
Let’s hope the new owner of the custom Hilux is a 4x4 enthusiast who’ll get the most out of this very capable rig.
