That is emissions tax exempt for London...someone over there may end up paying a premium for it.

How many board members are buying truck sign unseen or do you guys have contacts that help you take a look at it from afar ? Then you have someone like Doug help with bringing it in?

This does look nice. Good find and tempting for some of the more poor hope-to-be-a-Defender-owner people.

Chris, overall, I've had very good experience with the 4 110's I've picked up in the past 12months. All have been consistent with what I was expecting. This one is at Port waiting for release as we speak. Fingers and toes are always crossed however that they arrive as represented. No guarantees in life or Rovers unfortunately.

I bought my truck sight-unseen. It turned out ok, but probably wasn't the smartest thing I ever did.

I justified it because I was buying from a dealer. They put the truck on a lift and took pictures of everything I asked for so I had a very accurate portrayal of problem areas. No suprises there. Overall body condition (dents, scratches, oxidization) is hard to tell from photos. My truck was more beat than pictures showed. Engine and drivetrain condition is obviously impossible to tell from photos -- this is where I gambled. It turned out great, but it could have been bad.

I didn't get burned, but if I ever import again I'll take the time to find a rep over there to check it out -- or I'll go check it out myself. I'll also make sure to get a Tdi right out the gate! :-/

That's a nice looking truck.

You might call DOT AND EPA and double check but I don't think that's correct. I imported a 110 last year that was several months from 25. It was a late 87.

I had one that I was clearing through customs exactly 25 years to the day it left the factory. The officer told me good thing I did not try the previous day because he would not have released it to me. Likley depends on who you get I guess and how they feel.

Reg date is the date it was first registered and put on the road NOT the date it was built.

I'd want to see the VIN plate and the chassis number in situ.
Something for me don't ring too true about this truck ( Of course that's only my opinion ). I don't normally slate another guys rig out of courtesy, but I'm letting the devil in here.
As previously stated, the seller has it listed as a Discovery which a dyed in the wool LR fan would not make. I do love the over-spray onto the wheel arch liner inside the engine bay....quality job that respray!!! My first thought was "G4 wannabe" What else? oh yes..
The rust on the footwell is indicative of a more advanced problem.
The rubberised coating on the underside will be masking a multitude of sins (Just ask Liveridge 4x4 for details).
Circa 58,000 genuine miles??????????? Bollix! they might be genuine after the point at which the new odometer was fitted, but on an 'F' reg I seriously don't think.
What's with the different sized tyres on the roof. I'd rather see 2 spares that matched what was fitted, and a mung load of puncture repair kits in the back.
Kitted out for an overland trek what, to Tesco's?
And is that a 'Jackall' Hi lift I spy? Safer to use an 8' forestry pole and a couple of breeze blocks Neville.
All at a giveaway price of what he probably paid for it originally.
And not a mention of the quality of transmission....I wasn't overly impressed about the 'old skool' petrol engine either.

Damn, thanks for the heads up, I'd been told they don't care. Customs seems very irritated with Land Rover imports right now unfortunately. I have an 83 110 that sat for 30 days at the Port of Baltimore while they ran it through the ringer. They've released it for import recently but the attitude within the process is less than perfect.

Clay - you may want to start looking at another port of entry - possibly Wilmington.

Get a Certificate of Build Date from the British Motor Hertitage Trust (google them), its not an official state document, but it it will represent the date it left the factory and that combined with you other docs should add to the credibility at the time it arrives at a US port.

Also, maybe others have gotten some through CBP, but the way I understand it (I read the regulations) is that the 25-year rule is down to the very day. NO SOONER. So, to be true to the law you would have to wait until November **, 2013.

X2 what Spanner said about the trucks condition. There's a lot of lipstick on this pig. At a minimum it needs to be seen in person.

The on,y good thing I see is that nice burly winch bumper and winch (which is probably needed every time that rig gets into the slightest sticky situation because of that weak-ass lump of a motor)

I was able to get this through the LR Dealer in Bahrain to import my 86. It took about two weeks to get it. Once it arrived in Edison, NJ I picked it right up. It was imported by the Navy, so the customs might have been easier than normal.
