110 on Autotrader - Not mine - Anyone Know It?

So, saw this on auto trader...
http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-s...Index=24&Log=0

Additional photos here...
https://rowdefender110.shutterfly.com/pictures

Says it is located in Tucson now. Does anyone think they've seen this car sold/for sale before? Does anyone have an opinion on Foley as rebuilders? Anyone have any background on it? I'm asking for the VIN, but what else would i ask to see in terms of photos from the undercarriage?

Thanks in advance.

PS-I don't really have the cash for it, but am trying to get a good base of knowledge to evaluate LRs that i see up for sale in the future.

It was imported by someone and then sold in the US to the current owner.
The current owner sent it to us for repairs after they bought it. See links below for what work we did.

It is a roll over rebuild from the UK.

New galv. chassis and new bulkhead and good drivetrain.

Stu at Foley told us they did not do the rebuild on the 110.

Easily done. You can reach Simon through his Auto-Trader ad.

If you check the for sale vehicles section here we've been having a discussion on this truck since last year before it was ever sent to ECR.

How many parts showed evidence that it was rolled over? My thinking is that it was likely a combination of many different vehicles, just like most rebuilds these days.

Wow. Amazing that this kind of history exists here for this one. Thanks for the heads up. This is the previous thread, I assume:
http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=43072

The truck sure looks great in pictures. Haven't found a VIN listed for it, but will be interested to run it when I get it back from the seller.

.
Looks like the truck has been considerably altered since import, ECR's information would be far more pertinent.

The original seller (was Tim Hoffman, as there were PA inspection documents in the 110) did go good for the bulkhead swap costs, so although it sounds iffy, that is a stand-up seller IMO. He could have just said "tough crap".

The 110 was clearly rolled and repaired in the UK and it looked to be more on the RH side. The roof, some doors and the RH T support were all older pieces. Stu at Foley knew about the damage, but said their shop did not do the roll over repair.

It sounds like a poor history, but the 110 has a galv frame (that we saw no damage to), a new bulkhead, a well running 300 Tdi and all but a few body panels are newer ROW spec stuff, so it really isn't a bad truck. The key parts are there and in good to great shape.
