berkshire land rover co???

Anybody know if this Berkshire Land Rover Co is legit or a scam in regards to bringing basically new Defenders to the U.S.? They have listings on ebay for circa 1980s D110s that have basically been restored to new condition. Just wondering

They are a real company, have had a fair bit of good press recently. Not sure how the restorations are done.

I would also love to see them try and sell one of those USA export vehicles in the UK ... I'd love to see a build book as well.

they can't legally put those vehicles on the road in the UK as they have been to heavily modified from stock and would not pass an SVA test. and Incidentally if you put a new galv chassis on a Land Rover 110 going into the USA and that chassis has the early vin stamped into it, it is not legal as per NHTSA guide lines. Any vehicle which has had the chassis number tampered with comes into this cattagory.
