In the future... the only car company that survived was Land Rover.


The real stars of the film are the action sequences and special effects. Considerable effort was made to create this Bladerunner clone-world, the film's makers even approached Land Rover via its Marketing Department to build the vehicles. The company exceeded all expectations when Rover's Design Department, led by Gorden Sked, submitted its own designs on how the last vehicle on earth might look.

Designer David Woodhouse, 26, explains, "In the past I had done quite a lot of theoretical work on futuristic Land Rovers. When I heard about the project I adapted these ideas into something that could be based on an existing chassis and was appropriate to the film script. As soon as the producer and director of the film saw the drawings, and then a model, Land Rover immediately won the contract to supply the vehicles."

Speaking about the Judge Dredd project David added:

"We based the design on the Land Rover 101 Forward Control, a model used mainly by the military. We did this as the vehicles had to be fairly large -as the script called for these taxis to be capable of carrying six passengers within a highly protected cell.
"We had less than three months to complete the design process, including producing quarter and full sized models before delivering the finished vehicles to the film set. At one point up to 20 people from Rover Group Design worked on the project. We also had to make sure that all 31 vehicles could be driven including one with a fully designed and equipped interior.

“The result is a vehicle looking more than capable of taking on a world which has such a hostile environment. The futuristic look and aggressive stance has been enhanced by avoiding rounded body panels and edges, extending the wheels by ten inches and using very small windows.”


Certainly this futuristic and aggressive Rover fits the bill better than the comic-book coloured Stallone, but I must admit despite its descent into science fiction cliche for noisy action eye-candy it’s quite tasty. Does that put me at the front of the queue for an aesthetic taste transplant?

No problem importing it. It is a 101 fc . I bought one and imported it way back in 1999.

I would disagree with this statement, based on the recent events at most of the ports.

Can people just post what is actually happening instead of just alluding to things. A lot of posts in multiple threads are hinting at things regarding importing but nobody is actually posting anything fact like.

So what is happening at the ports? What is going on? Should the enthusiasts , that might import a truck or two , leave it to the pros ?

I posted here back in December warning that DOT had established a land rover specialist and that things had tightened. Nothing obtuse or vague about that. Stick to all original-like the one we did for you. One of my bigger clients these days is Withams. Trucks with frame swaps/galv chassis will not make it in.

Or as you like to say Abe- "let me be clear"

Rog. Until original 200tdi trucks are legal(2014+). Then people won't have to "rebuild" an early 110 on a galvanized chassis with a "2006 donor" for parts in order to satisfy their must have for a diesel Land Rover.

And to add to it, they are looking for any modifications, they now know that 200tdi, 300tdi are not original putting you at risk for violating the epa doc. They are scrutinizing disc brake upgrades, seat upgrades, dash upgrades, and using the ruling that the newest part is new age to establishing the vehicle. Importing has always been a gamble, but now it is a bigger risk than I have seen. They are pulling all manifests that have Land Rover on them and scrutinizing them. Basically DC is asking for verification on them all. So they say.

200 Tdi was manufactured 89-93 so all but last year of manufacture are 21 or older.

Happy to help Abe- bummer about the furnace.

As a motor yes its exempt but its not in original vehicle. Which at that point makes the dot 25 year exemption void.

Here's my educated interpretation from the encrypted government responses I get. If it's 25 and unmodified in anyway then it will get it in. If there are any mods, and they got right down to the little ones, like new doors, dash, brakes, seats, axles, transmissions, engines,(all this they knew about and brought up to me) then it isn't getting in as they will be unable to determine the authenticity of the age. Will some get it in still, I would bet so. I am just saying the chances have been greatly reduced. I couldn't even get them to okay a original exmod tithonus that had been repainted. At this point the sure thing has dried up. Their words is they are treating these like the Nissan skylines, and the Mini.
