take a look at http://www.ecr4x4.com/NAS337.html and you'll see why they are different from questionable imports ...

Leastonce,

I know you don't believe everything in pictures based on your previous posts.

While doing Ride the Rockies this week, I've seen a nice white D90 with a surrey top pulling a popup trailer a couple times. He/she is obviously doing the same ride, but have yet to talk to them.

The only legal way is to restore and then use the original chassis before the rebuild can take place, any vehicle which has had the original chassis replaced and then the whole rest of the car replaced and a vin added is not a rebuild.

This is what we do at our facility in Colorado. We use 25yr old original vehicles for the chassis or we use LR90/110 donated by customers.
Once the chassis has been rebuilt/restored, we then build the rest.

I guess it is easier to store the parts for a restoration in complete truck form. They take up less space that way.

That's a really nice truck, Julian. Based on those pics, I assume the frame isn't galvanized. Why not galvanize the frame when you have it all apart and you are welding new mounting points, engine, body, etc.? I can't imagine an '83 frame from the UK didn't have any rust or areas that needed to be repaired.

Shouldn't this subject be part of the "what is legal, etc." thread instead of Defender sightings? Just sayin'...

No this thread is named correctly. The current discussion needs to move to the what's legal thread.

109 Pickup??

Saw a pretty looking tan pickup on a car carrier as it was heading towards Seattle on Sunday morning on I-90. Somebody's new ride?
