1999 D110 TD5 on Ebay

Interested in the forum's thoughts on this truck. Does this truck at least meet federal requirements (my understanding is that the truck would need to meet safety regulations in effect at time of importation, which would have to have been after '99 when air bags were required)? In the pictures on "flickr," however, it has a plaque from the NHSTA that says, "Substitute for VIN. . . See 49 CFR Part 565." What is the significance of this? Is this truck legal? Also, I would appreciate any thoughts ont he TD5 engine. Not as familiar with this engine as the Tdis. Thanks.

I can't speak to the legality, but I drove a td5 110 around Scotland for a week or so. Aside from the fact that it is managed by an ECU, I thought it was a really sweet engine. The throttle (potentiometer) takes a little getting used to but after that it was a blast. Not as good as a 200tdi, of course, but pretty nice.

My understanding is that it is indeed an illegally imported vehicle. There are many posts on this subject, but the short story is that only Defenders greater than 25 years old (according to the initial registration date) can be legally imported (i.e. 1983-1984).

This would mean this vehicle was illegally imported. Swim at your own risk.

The sad fact is that political pull can get you waivers for DOT and EPA. If this is the same truck that has been bantered about here before, the guy claims to have DOT and EPA paperwork. It is possible to verify the legitimacy of the documents with the agencies, so if it floats your boat, just do your homework prior to jumping in.

I have seen a couple of new trucks floating around. I thought if you moved to the US you were allowed to bring your vehicle with you. I think you can then sell it after a certain amount of time.

That's not true Barry. The HS-7 makes it pretty clear.

We can go around and around about what's legal and illegal but the short of it is; in 2006 If you had the proper paperwork, took the proper steps (through dot, epa, and customs) with about 20k you could have a defender (Legalized?). Today however, its not possible unless its 84 and back from everything i've read.(But I don't know evertything) I used to own that truck along with 4 others just like it.

Nuttin' much, the govt just tightened up the regs that year, changed the form, and cracked down. I think tim meant "up until 2006."

If you are going to spend that much, 60K ++, why not purchase a NAS 110. You would have enough extra money to restore it, if needed, to your particular needs. For that matter you could get a NAS 90 and do a conversion.
