Current customer rating: (3) based on 14 votes
Hello,This listing is for the very reluctant sale of my extremely rare Talbot-Peugeot 'Pilote' 4x4, 2.5 Turbo Diesel, Coachbuilt Motorhome, forced by an unexpected mortgage obligation. Sadly it's time to grow up and give up some of my toys this was to be my Overlander rig, for trip across Scandinavia and Russia... She is true barn find, having been dry stored (since 2002) following cracked windscreen repair that never happened and life getting in her farmer owner's way. have deliberately left the No plate visible so everybody can check her history online with the DVLA. She was coachbuilt by the legendary 'Pilote' company and has to be one of only few 100% original ones (Right Hand drive too) left in the world! Please note she is not van or flatbed conversion. She is built on purpose-designed lightweight motorhome/caravan galvanised chassis, with great ground clearance and running the rare 16" wheels. She is fitted with kitchen, shower/toilet room, loads of storage, 240v/split-charger etc etc. She has drop-down overhead double bed. Everything is absolutely in original condition absolute time warp. The bulletproof 2.5TD engine is one of the best small diesel engines ever designed. have owned several of these and they've never let me down almost no electronics/electrics to worry about. This one is particularly amazing, being proper 'commercial' engine with chain driven camshaft (timing belt pump only) and an extra intake injector for Arctic weather. She has also only done 55k miles before being dry barn stored. Apart from the missing windscreen, she is bone dry inside. Please note: She is true barn find and hasn't been started in yeeeaars. She will need good few lockdown days of fettling and sorting but absolutely worth it! She is located in and to be collected from the Army Barracks, Aldershot, Hampshire. Recovery will require recovery truck, trailer or towing dolly she has not been started and cannot be driven away. She owes me almost £5k and I've only ever seen one other for sale, high-mileage completely rotten one (but running) that sold for over £11,000 set up as Mini Overlander motorhome. I have posted few quick pics to start the listing, loads more to follow.shortly... Please note: To keep the timewasters and shill bidders away, conditions of auction are 10% final value deposit payable by bank transfer within 1hr and the remainder on collection within days of the auction ending. will provide you with proof of my ID (Military, UK Driving License) and home address require proof of your driving licence in return. THERE WILL BE NO EXEMPTION MADE ON THIS.Re: Virus lockdown nonsense. If you consider this to be an obstacle to you collecting in the specified timeframe, she can be securely stored (24hr armed guards and CCTV) free-of-charge for longer, as long as the finances are settled as my mortgage is progressing regardless of this hysteria. am in the military and might be able to assist with the delivery over short distance too. Any questions, please drop me line on 07450851433.
Many Thanks DamianOn 26-May-20 at 14:25:46 BST, seller added the following information:Hello,Apologies for the late addition of all the extra pics! I'm in the forces and currently deployed in another part of the country, so having to ask friend to take some for me... These show the interior, exterior and the underside she really is an awesome time-warp find, ready to tidy up or personalise according to personal preferences. Other than obviously needing the windscreen replacing, she is bone dry inside the back no leaks whatsoever. She comes with whole bunch of spares that came from the farm estate (the family owned few of these) which can be kept as spared or sold on. The 4x4 tailshaft is currently removed to assist with the recovery (only takes bolts and 5mins to replace great fuel saving trick on long highway journeys too). Cheers
