People just can’t wait to get their hands on these tough-as-nails vehicles so here is an explainer on how it works:
The Australian Defence Force supplies vehicles to us when they no longer need them. Sometimes there can be plenty of vehicles available from the ADF which allows us to sell vehicles in multiple locations. Other times though, there isn’t as many available and the location of those vehicles dictate where vehicles are available to inspect and pick up.

It was about about 10am, and I was driving through the western suburbs of Sydney in an Ex-Army Land Rover Perentie. The only thing bigger than the smile on my face was the throbbing pain surging through my right arm after smashing it on the door skin once again.

People keep on asking me: “So, why did you buy a Unimog?” And, like most things, the reasons are multi-layered. First, I blame online auctions like the one I entered on Grays Online.

At its core, the Australian Frontline Machinery Pimped Perentie is an ex-military Land Rover 110 from the Australian Defence Force (ADF). The nickname ‘Perentie’ is a reference to ‘Project Perentie’, the tender project of the 1980s that saw the Land Rover 4×4 and 6×6 become the vehicle of choice for the ADF. It is one of over 2,000 Land Rover 4x4s that have been sold by Australian Frontline Machinery over the past 2 years, but it is now a Land Rover with a difference.
