hypothetically, you buy this and it has a 1978 title. you register it at the DMV with no issues, get a new title in your name etc.
Any downsides. I've heard the arguments about getting into a wreck and being sued but in reality its basically the same "risk" class as a homebuilt AC cobra replica. so that is not going to be a major stumbling block. You did not import it and have taken the documenation at paper value on it.


- these trucks come up a good bit, and are really tempting since i want a 110 diesel. taking a 1985 and rebuilding it to this standard would cost about the same but avoid the work and carry the same "risks"
my question is not about the import of this particular truck (don't want to know actually)

what am i missing?

"This is a 1978 land rover with clear title, factory built in 1999. Meets all stock standards for a 1999 Defender 110 Td5 Station Wagon."

I wonder what factory "built" it in 1999?

Pretty spot on in terms of rebuilding an '85. I'd even hazard to say it's cheaper to buy that 1999 truck if the "risk" is worth it.

like i said - i hear nothing with regards to that as long as the paper work is in order.

Ask no questions, tell me no lies..

but seriously what are the down sides to buying something like this that someone else already did the "work" on.

many moons ago a "friend" imported a Mitsu Evo 7 as a race car and then "rebuilt" a wrecked lancer and retitled it with a "new" VIN from the replacement chassis. (this is a rally car, and has since needed another new chassis so its gone...)

Anyway i'm just trying to get my head around possible pitfalls in something like this

Very open ended question and you'll get ten different opinions here. I won't even bother with my opinion on it....

yeah i know... heard a lot of arguments and was wondering if there was a coherent answer. sounds like not... you pay your money you take your chances.

i am not in the market for any discussed trucks btw...

i'll go with don't ask, don't tell if i get one.

I wonder what factory "built" it in 1999
I think a little Johnny Cash is appropriate; obvious why it took 21 years to build!

Most states allow you to re-build and or build a car/truck from parts. Some States allow you to call it what ever you want as long as it looks like what you are calling it. The way to get into trouble is, if it can be determined that it was a frame/vin swap and not a build. Will an insurance company try to get out of a claim if they determine the truck is something that it is not? Now do you want a Td5? that bad? I say build one or have it built. At least you will know what you have.

When I read that it struck me that in Florida there is probably a couple days a year when glow plugs would be appropiate. Wondering if the owner/seller knows how to use them ......
