Don't do it !

http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/400740615210

It's this truck. IE vin will never make it into the US ever. Dealer is unscrupulous and is fully aware/knows the truck will be seized on arrival yet is pimping it for export to the US, he bought it under the conditions listed in the thread below.

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...eferrerid=3511

Seller is David Ellison in case the listing pops up under one of his other (je has multiple) ebay seller id's.

Why bother ? I'd rather see the crook (have some history with the guy shafting members of this board) eat it for as long as possible.

FYI vin doesn't even decode to a lhd 5 door truck.

The dealer I represented in the original thread traded it for two importable trucks from Ellison.
That didn't happen.

Damn - I wonder if he used my purchase as a inlet to the US Defender buyers. I feel like shit that he stuffed other buyers after my deal went ok and I gave him a positive mark on eBay. Doug - were the bad deals you have seen after mine? Does anyone know of a way to recant eBay feedback?

I don't think you can recant ebay feedback. I may be wrong but havent seen it.

The only kudos here goes to Uncle Doug for spotting the same vehicle FS.
Notice he uses a ebayname name similar to wolfie's....

Hi there, I'm based in Australia so am a curious by stander only - what is the issue your local authorities have with the TDi & gal chassis? Down here in my home state of Victoria we can't have a bespoke chassis made and brought in to re chassis a car and then get it registered for road use but I thought Aust. was the only full blown nanny state around.

Well, you could decommission your ebay ID. Your feedback comment will either be removed, or it will look quite suspicious that there is a positive comment from someone who is no longer a registered user.
