2001 110 for sale in CT

Interesting. 12K for a vehicle that you can't drive for another 18 years

That is one of the old Harland Rover UK 110s. They got a number of them in before the DOT closed them down.

so.... what's the legality of this one then? I assumed you couldn't even register it legally... but maybe you can since there was no fraud in the import??

Selling is F-40 Motorsports...Wayne Carini. I watch his television show religiously...Chasing Classic Cars. Interesting to see him a with a Landy.

With a reputation and viewership to uphold, I'm sure the odds are its a nice vehicle.

The "legality" is something one could debate in 100 different ways for 100 years, all depends on your views.

Some Harland trucks were imported on 1960s VINs, some came in as kit cars with Utah assigned titles. We have worked on a couple and they are terrible build quality and really bodged together (but hey, if you can buy it cheap, go for it).

The DOT found out what they were doing and shut them down. The DOTs reasoning was they were not actually the old cars that Harland said they were. They said that Harland had changed so much that it was no longer valid to import them as vintage trucks and that they would have to now meet all current regulations as they had changed so much it was a new vehicle, not a rebuild of the old one.
You can search all the letters back and forth between the DOT and Harland on the NHTSA web site.

There 1000 areas for debate and not worth the breath. It has all been covered before.

My advice:
If you like the truck and have checked out its condition... make sure your insurance company has no issues with insuring it, make sure your DMV can process the title and then drive and enjoy it, but be aware that when you go to sell it all this may come up again.

Sold for 47k. Seems a bit steep for a truck with the issues described above.
