1989 or is it 1990 d90 tdi (not mine)

First post so please excuse any mistakes. I am just curious if anyone knows anything about this truck. I first saw it for sale online in Italy a few months back. It looks to have sold for 5k GBP and is now for sale on Ebay with a BIN of 39k usd. The VIN listed is for an audi wagon not a defender.
I have no idea if anything shady is going on, but I also can't quite connect the dots.

I am a LR newb but something is off with that engine. Is it a 300TDI or a Discovery engine? However one of the photos in the ad shows serial number 11L on the block. 11L is a 200TDI Defender serial number, which would make this truck no older than a 1990. Since the front grill says "Land Rover 90" instead of "Defender", that means it isn't a 1991 which is when the 90's were renamed Defenders.

I wouldn't pay a dime for it until it is titled in USA at best.

eBay rarely shows the correct year for earlier vehicles and has shown issues with VINs from other markets as well. Can't answer the Audi VIN question unless the seller isn't trying to allow people to decode it, but perhaps the seller can answer that when you ask him. Why didn't you buy it when it was priced at 5k?

If that is a 300Tdi it probably won't make it past customs and will be refused entry.

Moved to Misc Chit Chat as this is not your vehicle for sale.
