We’ve just learned that Land Rover will be auctioning off a fully restored 1990 Range Rover replica of the original Great Divide Expedition Range Rover as well as an opportunity to attend the 25th anniversary Great Divide Expedition and best of all is that all the proceeds from the auction will go to benefit Tread Lightly! and its goal of promoting responsible outdoor recreation through ethics education and stewardship.
The Range Rover will be auctioned off on eBay from August 4-14. The highest bidder will purchase the vehicle and be a guest of Land Rover on a 9-day adventure across some of America’s toughest terrain in the 25th anniversary Great Divide Expedition that will be taking place from September 3-12 later this year. The Range Rover will take part in both legs of the Expedition (August 20-28 & September 3-12) and will be delivered to the bidder within 30 days following the end of the Expedition.
Now that’s pretty cool in our book. Whoever wins this auction will get a legendary off-road rig that has literally conquered the Great Divide.
The inaugural Great Divide Expedition in the fall of 1989 helped launch Tread Lightly! as a national non-profit organization focused on fostering an ethic of good stewardship to proactively protect recreation access to America’s lands and waterways. Land Rover is a founding partner of Tread Lightly!.
The 25th anniversary Great Divide Expedition will cover nearly 1,000 miles of unpaved roads and 4x4 trails along a portion of the original Great Divide route. Throughout this expedition, participants will navigate narrow rocky trails with steep drop-offs and mountain passes over 13,000 feet in elevation. There’s no question that this journey will be filled with epic wheeling adventures so if you’re interested in wheeling a cool 1990 Range Rover across the Great Divide and then driving it home, make sure you place your bid on this once in a lifetime opportunity.
