Do you have emissions in FL?
No, no emissions constraints that I'm aware of (yet).

I had trouble getting my Tith done because the DMV couldn't wrap their mind around the fact that I was the first person to own/title a 25 yo vehicle. Crazy I know. I tried to explain to them that it was a cast off British military vehicle and the Queen owned it before me and Queen didn't title it because it was Her truck in Her country and didn't feel the need to.


I finally ended up talking (for hours) to someone up the food chain in Tallahassee DMV and long story short got it done.

Update:

I was able to get The Beast registered after all. Using the link below with my VIN number I was able to convince the DMV clerk that the truck was not a 2011 and indeed a 1987. I suspect that they just had to enter it in manually which went off without a hitch despite the TX title showing 2011.

I celebrated with some off road time....seems appropriate.

Thanks to all for the feedback & guidance.

Do not use the CalVIN decoder. It is not accurate.

If I bought an already imported LR non NAS one think I'd insist on getting are the actual docs detailing the importation.
But I would walk away from anything that is titled inaccurately (I presume) like yours.
Reason is simple, it's going to be a clusterfuck to fix.

When I imported my 1995 BMW in 2002, it came up as a 2000 in the DMV system simply because the VIN digits meant different things in different markets. The "year" digit just didn't mean the sMe thing it did in Germany. It took an extra trip to the DMV to fix but no harm done.

Can you elaborate Will? And what's a better online alternative?

At the end of the day, I have found with the DMV if you are polite, patient and persistent you can get most anything fixed/corrected.

I'm feeling pretty fortunate now that I was able to get it titled and registered without any nightmares. In the end it comes down to social engineering of sorts...in that you're asking a human to use judgement on something somewhat unclear where they're not as vested as you.

First and foremost--congrats on both the purchase and getting that PITA resolved. Looks like a great truck. Were you able to get the title permanently changed to the correct date?

Welcome to the disease... I mean Defender community...

Yes as far as I can tell the title is now permanently corrected. I anticipate no further issues (fingers crossed).

I'll post a picture if I can figure out the whole picture thing. I think I'll have to post a link to my Dropbox or something.

Surprisingly pleased to report no issues whatsoever. Took 20 minutes.

Walked in with Virginia title, bill of sale and proof of insurance.

Visual inspection of VIN (under hood only, not on frame). Mileage verification exempted due to age.

Walked out with registration, license plate and a lighter wallet.

Florida title to be mailed.

Thank you wonderful lady at the DMV.
