1971 Land Rover 109 – Deziree
This vehicle, in its pre-makeover form, was the hero vehicle in the Hollywood film “The Journey is the Destination”, which was filmed in South Africa and that was released in Canada in September 2016. It is based on the life of photojournalist Dan Eldon (www.daneldon.org), and the Land Rover called Deziree that he used for relief work in Africa.
Here’s a background video on Eldon: https://youtu.be/t0BZGZS6YMw
Note: the 109 we have is not the original one Eldon used on his travels, but the one used in the film about his life. The original apparently still lives in Kenya, but has been completely changed and modified since 1993.
Some direct info from the Restorer and Owner:
It has the R6 2,6-litre straight-six engine, and a four-speed ‘box (we tested the transfer case and that worked fine too). The engine is (now) one of its best qualities… really runs sweetly. We haven’t done any major overhauls or engine rebuilds, just a major service and replaced the obvious things such as coil and plugs. The carb is not original – the mechanic pointed out it’s a Toyota 1.3 12V carburetor. But it works like a charm.
The vehicle is not a chassis-up restoration. Instead we aimed to create a modern-classic version of the Land Rover as used in the film. So the Kenyan number plates are still there, as are some of the props and unique finishes that Eldon had used (like the colorful map of Africa on the doors). Everything has just been updated with a new lick of paint, but we did not mend all the small dings and dents – in keeping with the movie character.
For the film the production company had cut a crude hole in the Safari roof, through which the actor playing Dan Eldon took some photos. We fixed this crude hole thanks to Onca 4×4, who custom made an aluminum hatch that seals properly, and also has latches and rubber stoppers to you can drive with the hatch open without damaging anything.
The front spotlight, as per the original Deziree, will be a period Hella light – sourced the light that will still be fitted.
It has brand new Firestone Jeep Service tyres (that have done about 5km), brand new Old Man Emu shocks and steering damper (also about 5km), and the front seat has been completely refurbished.
Overall she is in pretty good shape, but it certainly is not a concours type restoration. Instead we aimed to give the old girl a more modern makeover but sticking to the character she played in the movie. Like if Dan Eldon still lived today, this would be what Deziree would be like.
1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda
Mileage: 27486 miles
Paperwork up to date.
On offer is the Uber Cool Mercesdes-Benz roadster / Coupé that was introduced in 1963 at the Geneva Motor Show. To say that these were an instant hit is an understatement; Sportscar performance and Merc comfort with the solid build quality, this 3 pointed star has been sought ever since. Production lasted until 1971 with a total of 48 912 units produced of which 19 440 units were sold in the States. Towards the end of the production of the W113 it evolved to be more of a grand tourer then a sports car and most units were produced with Automatic gearboxes rather than the 4 speed manual which means the manual transmissions are very sought after these days. All models were equipped with inline six cylinder engines with multi-port fuel injection of which 3 engine sizes were available ranging from 2308cc to 2496cc all the way up to the iconic 2778cc. To save weight, Mercedes manufactured the bonnet, boot lid and door skins from aluminum. With the wide stance, short body, good suspension and powerful brakes the W113 had superb handling for the time.
The Q car is in showroom condition with less than 30 000 miles on the clock. Originally from Rupert Murdock’s family collection where it was bought new and driven sparingly for 20yrs racking up various show wins, this vehicle was then imported into SA in the early 80’s. A refresh of the body and interior was undertaken some years back so this Pagoda is looking rather shiny indeed. The car comes with a soft and hard top, the very rare option at the time was the 3rd cali seat in the rear, plus the sought after is the 4 speed manual. This a clean honest car which would add value to any Mercedes collection with the best part being that it’s still a beauty to drive!
We are in possession of the original steering wheel and hubcaps and history files.

1971 Porsche 911 Carrera RS lightweight replica LHD
Mileage: 105898 miles
Paperwork up to date
Originally introduced in 1963, the iconic Porsche 911 is a shape recognised the world over. The engine hanging over the rear axle was certainly perceived controversial by some, but this layout has since delivered 911’s that have set drivers pants on fire with blistering performance! Right from inception, Porsche proved the its formula with racing, and boy has it been successful in just about all forms of motorsport.
Early Carrera RS models are considered by many collectors as THE greatest classic 911s of all time and those in the know, know exactly why! As with so many highly collectible sportscars nowadays, The “Racing sport” was a production special manufactured in low volumes to meet the minimum number to be able to enter certain racing formulas. The 911 2.7 RS was given the core basics of a bigger engine, larger brakes and stiffened suspension – this truly was a great in the motoring world which has since been adorned in ever book of the greatest driver vehicles!
The car in question was built by the renowned and now legendary Peter Gough, who completed it in 1994 after a painstaking 14 month build. From the outset, the goal was to outperform a standard RS. No expenses were spared in achieving this goal and perfection was priority over costs! The donor body came of a 71’ 911 2.2T which was in already solid condition….He then set about with a full body restoration adding the RS rear arches, front & rear bumper and boot lid. On the inside, the interior was given the full lightweight RS trim (hood lining & Carports) and super supportive original RS Recaro seats were installed. It certainly looks the part! Now for the performance parts!!!
The gearbox came from a 915 that was fully reconditioned by Porsche agents coupled with a new genuine Porsche heavy duty clutch along with a pressure plate were fitted. Then a new competition exhaust system was fitted to handle the increased engine output. The 2.7lt crank and 7R crank casings were fitted with 2.9litre male competition high compression pistons and sleeves which were professionally ported with twin spark heads. New 46 IDA Weber carbs on high rise manifolds with K&N filters were installed. An additional external oil cooler was mounted up front behind the bumper with standard Porsche plumbing. Engine Check! Power Check! Straight line speed Check!
And now to stop this beast! The brakes were upgraded with competition in mind with dual master cylinders front and rear with a brake bias adjuster for incredible stopping power. Suspension Is Bilstein all round with Weltmeister adjustable anti roll bars fitted front and rear. Of course there has to be some 15 inch Genuine Porsche Fuchs wheels to complete the package. The handling on this has been set-up for road and track…you can push super hard on the road and go down to your local track and turn in some laps. Driver experience, simply outstanding! It makes all the right noise and feels like an extension of one’s body as you think your way through corners. An absolute blast to drive!
This special car carries loads of build history with Porsche Agent invoices that a car of this calibre deserves. Please contact for more detailed information on the build and parts fitted.
