Looks reasonable from the bridge...
Hopefully it is not to badly eaten up with frame rot.

Worth the parts even with a shot frame but was it imported with 200TDI or was it installed in the USA after import?

The work is no problem only difference really from my other build is the roll cage but the 200tdi is out of a disco I'll take a look at it when I get it but he told me it shouldn't be a problem driving from Brooklyn 300 miles to my home ls it can't be that bad. I plan on replacing frame too so I don't care too much about that.

The 200tdi was in it when imported

I have heard that it can be very difficult to title the truck unless you are the person on the import paperwork. I would see if they can register it even if you have to pay the fees.

Correct about being here a while I asked about titleing it shouldn't be a problem if it is in fine wth him titleing it and I'll just file for a dupe and transfer it to me.

I ran the VINN thru Calvin and it showed up not Rover(?). maybe just a typo on the sellers part? I copied and pasted. 200TDI didn't come out till 91. Good luck, lots a work!

It's just missing a number from the serial (last 6...but only shows 5), probably a typo.

And I'm sure the 200 is probably a swap.

This vehicle has a high amount of buyer remorse potential.
