That's the first thing I thought of myself when I saw it..... there's no WAY that ECR built that thing. I mean, Mike might as well call his company OCD Rovers for the attention to detail and how well everything blends together in every ECR rover I've ever seen photos of.

Can't believe Creed is still in the business.
Even that part of his story is BS (the fact that we gave him a replacement cost quote), because we don't give any quotes until we go over the truck, so he even made up that part.

I know this is dragging on, but I did find out that the frame is not even galvanized. I told Creed if he is so sure we built it, to look for the chassis #s that are stamped on and then galvanized in on every coil truck that we have ever built and he said they couldn't be galvanized in because the frame isn't galvanized!

Just for giggles... more pictures of said truck:

This was already said, but I thought I would stress it again. Google this guy, his name has been dragged through the mud several times. He's obviously a little "slippery" to say the least!

By the way, do you remember this one Mike? Series-III hi-cap?

hey tom, nice find. you can't fake that patina. Throw that on top of the arrow chassis from montana and you can have a sweet truck for only $57,000! Or if you like shiny things, for that money you could buy Bart's 110.

Actually the montana truck doesn't look too bad all said and done. But it needs new rims and tires and a different color top. And the galvy stripped of paint and that funky stuff taken off the rear cross. Then it might be a 8-10k truck if its solid and runs well. Is that Don from CO in the one pic?

I didn't have to read any further than the name "Creed" and the area code 406 to know that this was going to be good

Slowly... just dug a 6.2 out of my old suburban for it yesterday and got a good quote on an nv4500 today. Need to assemble the 200tdi for the 90 first though.

Go ahead and Google earth me. I have twelve Defenders on my property. It would be a cool pic but mind you one is a 97 ST, one is a NAS 110, and the rest are matchbox toys

Absolutely. Was originally a RN company truck, then sold to Lloyd Miller who was a local collector. He sadly passed away a few months ago. We put a galv. frame in that many years ago. It was then sold and has sold again in th last few years. Lost track of it after it left our services.

A good friend of mine bought it a couple years ago from a guy in NH. He's on this board occasionally. It looks like he wants to put it up for sale though.... It's still in amazing shape. I don't think much mileage has been put on it at all and it's been stored in doors. If you know anyone who would be interested let me know and I'll pass the word!

We didn't work on that truck, nor did we sell it. I know this for a fact.

So that is 2 people in the last 2 weeks that refuse to believe me when I tell them the truck they have wasn't built by ECR.
I'm just amazed that people think I am wrong about these things.

OK, venting over.

I'm still just amazed that people think I'm wrong about this stuff. I wonder how many trucks a year they think we put out? I guess they think it is enough so that we wouldn't recall what we did and didn't build.
Thats the ultimate form of flattery isn't it ? They want the truck to be an ECR product so badly they won't even believe your assertion it isn't your work.

It is Don,

Creed still has his spell over him. He is up there right now trying to get paid for a few months work! I had wondered how Creed would have ended up with a ECR truck. Guess Mike confirms it is not one of his trucks. I think Don had his doubts as well.

Oh the drama-

as an interesting aside there is a guy in vancouver bc named richard creed dba pacific custom landrovers who(if such a thing is possible) is even more disreputable than creed evans. the moral of the story, if you hear the words land rover and creed in the same sentence hold onto your wallet and slowly back away.

Interestingly, this truck has resurfaced. Now being sold by (Creed) Miles Evans in California. A friend has a coil spring Series iiA on MVY, and this peaked my interest for a project. Then I watched the price be driven up by two "bidders" with 0 and 1 feedback, 100% of all bids with this seller.
