2014 Defender on eBay (not mine)

For off-road use only...? nothing wrong with that...

How can this be legally imported? Is there a "no sir, I won't drive it on roads" exemption?

And could you register it in, lets see here, 2039?

If you do a show and display exemption when you import it, can you then register it legally when it matures at 25 years?

Can't. Pretty sure the car has to be Rare and of some Significance to be considered. Like a McLaren F1 or Porsche 959 before they were 25 years old.

Giving the seller credit for being honest about the way they circumvented import regulations.

I know, right!?!


Hmmmm, body shipped separate and "reunited" with chassis, both imported as "parts".
How many have pondered the possibility of doing just that....until reality sets in. It just don't work that way folks!

Well building it is one thing and even using it for offroad I guess makes sense but who the hell would post that it has the Vin on it.

The paint would suggest a Mexico (roof white, sunroof, unpainted flares) build but I think you can now order this style paint job anywhere.

Either way it just seems to be an absurd ad.
