Bargain isn't the word that comes to my mind for 180,000.

But then it's RARE and COOL! Someone in La La Land will buy it.

If it's not a scam, I am mildly curious how they titled it.

Are there really that many guys willing to spend 100K or more for these? I really would love to own one but these prices seem to be in outer space. am I missing something? It was a fully restored NAS 110 I would get it.

I don't think anyone here would pay it. But LA being the strange place it is, there is someone who would buy it because it is "rare" and projects an image, and feel like the 180k price tag was fair.

If by restoration you mean riveting on the VIN from a 1980s 110 onto a new truck, then you are right. Nice "restoration".

No we rebuilt a 1984 truck on a galv chassis to 2010 spec. It has a 1984 title.

That's what I would imagine... the original CL post up above was for a "2010 Land Rover 110".

I know it's all gray area at this point, but I think whoever posted the ad should at least indicate that's what you are buying. Especially for 180K.

Just irritates me, that's all.

The 1990s are not able to go to the good'ol US of A, so that would not be much of a point would it.
Its fine if that is how they need to get passed Customs, but what makes me giggle is the folks that look at those vehicles and say "nicely done restoration". Beautifully done Series I 107 pick up = restoration. The Puma 1980s 110s = not restoration.

We don't call them restorations, we call them Re-builds. We can re-build you any type Defender to 2011 spec, incl 90, 110, 130, we can offer SE spec, and base, we can offer all LR's current defender colours.
110's from $70,000 ex works UK.
130's from $80,000 ex works UK.

Right, but the key difference is that you wouldn't call it a "2011 Defender", would you? I would imagine it would say "Rebuilt 1985 Defender 110".

You would rather have a NAS 110 over a brand new puma? I agree the price is high but if all things were equal there is no way I would take an NAS truck over a PUMA. NAS trucks have so many issues, even restored (meaning to factory specs).

Exactly as you say we call the re-built 1885 Defender's, or what ever year the model is.

Same goes for NAS "restorations"

I'm thinking this ebay ad is a scam. It sure would be interesting to see the California title or get the VIN and run a carfax to see if the import details show up-they should. My understanding is that it takes quite some time to get a California title issued for an import. Seats still covered in plastic in the pictures...
