Sorry, I had to post this.
I know, I know...
Do you win a prize if you can spot at least one 109 part?
Or maybe this sould be marketed as a very nice fully restored 1983 110.

A bargain at 150k. Too bad Boyd Coddington died, he could offer them some advice on how best to plead in a "ship of theseus" fraud case.

It blows my mind that a dealer would touch something which is so clearly VIN swapping.

I thought this was a typo, but then I found out it was a 1975 frame swapped new build-up of a 110. Is this price for real? They say it is new and to 2006 specs. Just thought people might be interested to know it was out there.

Long link I know. It is on cars.com and located in Port Chester NY if any of you Eastcoasters want to check her out. - Dave

Advertising a 150K truck with no pics... Nice. For that kind of price, I am sure we could get someone in the UK to post a 110 piece by piece and build it as a kit car.

I wonder where they found the 1975 Defender.


Other than that, a scratch built TD5 110 can cost every bit of 149K if done right.

I think Matt was mentioning that there never was a 1975 Defender... It was a Series 3

There is a half hearted mention that it's a D110/109 model.
Quote:
This is a D110/109 Model S that combines a 1975 and 2006 truck it started life as a 1975 long-wheelbase Defender and has been completed restored and upgraded to current 2006 specs. It is a complete nut-and-bolt total frame-off restoration, and is truly AS NEW or even BETTER than NEW!
I completely believe that this was a complete resto, a complete nut-and-bolt total frame-off... The problem is, after spending all that money on a bridge I purchased, I can't afford this fine example of a 109 rebuild.

Hunting Ridge has the clientele that can afford this, but I think it will be sitting around for a while. I can't fathom how someone would buy this "thing" over a Copley NAS 110.

I would assume that Mike would do it right and from what I have seen it is close to market price. . .

Anybody willing to pay 150K for that has more dollars than sense.

An ECR truck is one thing, here we have no galvanized chassis or any of the other "attention to detail" things you get in an ECR 110. If this is anything more than shameless profiteering of off a quick VIN-job on a suspect import, then I'll be amazed.

I remember there being a yellow 110 in the carolinas on here a few years back.

Let me ask you guys this, if the rebuild is quality(not ECR quality but solid) is there a difference between an old VIN rebuild compared to taking a 90 and streching it out? If you get it past your local DMV and the truck is good and you pay say 50K or less you could get a rough 90 for about 15 to 20k, use that VIN to get it registered as a 90 and have a truck done for about half of what the good shops charge for a rebuild?
