Just cruising through eBay looking at the Defenders for sale and happend across this one? My guess is that it was imported to the US? Perhaps from Canada or Mexico? One of the pictures appears to show a MA title. But the ad doesn't list the VIN, though the VIN is shown in one of the photos. I didn't want to pay 25 bucks to check the VIN on carfax to satisfy my curiosity.
