Bought my donor

Number 3 Land Rover.

Number 2 Ninety.

Bought for a major build project. Lots of plans and ideas I will share later. Does anyone know any details about this truck?

Looking at options for getting from Queens NY to Orlando. Does anyone know of low cost, safe shippers? How much night this cost?

Thanks,

Mike

Pick it up in person and take the auto train if you're afraid to drive it.

The seller clearly says he doesn't think it's roadworthy, I don't know. The real issue for me is I don't have the time, and won't for a month.

Low cost and safe. It's like saying you want a cheap Land Rover. It doesn't exist.
But safe reliable does.

I'm going to register this in FL. Does anyone know if I can get temporary plates in NY so I can drive it? The seller has NY title but never drove it and never put on license plates.

Yes, I can take the paperwork to FL then put on FL plates on for the drive, I just don't have time.

Just to put an end to this thread, I didn't buy this 90. My wife and I inspected it and said no.

Soon I will start a new thread on the 110 we just bought.

At 8200 for a galvanized chassis and a donor title it seems like a great deal.
