Ebay 110 in Puerto Rico...

Land Rover Defender 110 | eBay


Thoughts? Legit? If it's registered in PR, can it transfer stateside?

Looks like a sweet ride.

Why Wouldn't it be? , it is not that you are importing a Truck, no different than buying a car in Jersey and registering it in NC

Being registered in another country is rarely if ever the issue.

My initial thought, too.... But clarification goes a long way these days.

Thx, Goose.

Josh, it's considered the same as the US in PR, no?

Had this convo with a friend that has a business in PR. They are subject to the same DOT and EPA rules as the rest of the US.

Getting it through a US port, one might need to confirm whether it will pass the usual deeply-inserted flashlight inspection.

No idea if they do that for PR-originated entries. I'll leave that one for UD

A friend of mine just left Vieques, returning to the US with his cars, they waved him bye bye at the port as there is no inspection , as pre shipping, he submitted copy of Registration, and gets processed at once.

Now granted, some Cowboy might want to question something? possibly


If I was the buyer, I tell the seller, I meet him/her in CONUS with the vehicle and finalize the transaction

Pr 110

Call up Ricardo (owner) of caribbean rovers, he is a stand up guy and his crew are rover trained. I'm sure he has the skinny on it. I have been down there to his operation in person and spent time in PR, CO, MN, AZ with him. I'd give it no more thought than buying it from another state. Tell him hello from MN!

Ha. My response was intended to be taken broadly and not specifically to the independent territory known as Puerto Rico. Sometimes when we answer questions too specifically, the OP's are still confused.

If the truck is 25 years old and was originally configured with a 300tdi then you shouldn't have any issues (which applies to most scenarios).

Bringing a vehicle from the island is not complicated.

Go to the Police to get a report to validate that it's not stolen.

Get it to the docks, pay the shipping company and pick it up at your port in the US a week later.

The possibility of a cowboy wanting to question you is always there.

Someone I know very well... wink... wink... used Crowley.

3 years from now, we can say a truck was originally configured with such, and be 25. My only question was PR's place as our 51st state, and what that means for a ferry ride/registration.

You can do it today... same shit as Hawaii... only difference is they speak Spanglish.

You might get a DMV morron that will ask you to go to the Puerto Rico Embassy to get the Driver's License translated to English... ask me how I know.

^^^ Ha! I'd make the trip, too.... If it meant I was bringing the truck home.

DMV really mandated that? You must be joking...

51st state? Did I miss this event? When did that happen?

When I lived there, it was still a Commonwealth.

I wouldn't buy a vehicle from PR. You don't even have to drive near the ocean to have rust set in.

Me too. While it is true that shipping a vehicle from PR to the US is not a problem and happens every day, the key here is a Defender with a 300 TDi going to Jax. There is a huge chance that it will be treated like any other vehicle, but there is a small chance of an agent wanting to take a closer look.

I've seen this 110 at Caribbean Rovers. It looks very, very nice. Ricardo, the owner of CR is a great guy and knows LR inside and out. His daily driver is a very well equipped 110. His shop worked on this truck, which is owned by an attorney in San Juan. Money was never an issue for any maintenance, repairs or equipment.

Last year, it was listed on "Clasificados Online" (the local Craigslist) for a long time. The asking price was either $85 or $95k, I don't remember exactly.

I used Crowley once, and recently used SeaStar (now known as Tote) to bring my Series 1 to the island. Not a single problem. It's more expensive to bring a car to the island due to the huge tax that is assessed to each vehicle based on some BS book they use. On a side note, the ship that brought my LR to PR, El Faro; sank a few months after my trip and is sitting now at the bottom of the Atlantic ocean.
