NOT MINE - Looking for info 1995 110 in Langley BC

Hi all,

I'm hoping someone knows something about this vehicle and it's not a scam. There'd been a 1995 Defender 110 listed on Auto Trader for a while in Langley BC. Three pictures appeared to be from the owners, while another 5 were from the shop where it was built (LRUK - decal plate is evident in some of the owners photos and the orange/white shop wall is evident in other photos). None of the owners pics show a license plate. It was originally listed for a fair price, considering the build quality, and was up for a couple months if I remember correctly. This past weekend price was dropped substantially (with the explanation that he'd bought a house and needed to sell), to the point of thinking it was a scam, and then gone completely on Monday. I emailed as soon as I saw the price drop, and the guy has been back and forth with me a bit this week but has been vague with info (i.e. won't give me a VIN to run a search and hasn't replied since I asked to have a mobile mechanic take a quick look). Never once asked for $, and when I said I'd fly out and drive it back home (would be roughly 10 hour drive), he asked if I could come on Saturday. If it's legit and someone has actually seen or knows of the vehicle, I'd be on the first flight I can.

Thanks for the help.

this sounds like a rotten deal to me. lack of transparancy is the first tip to walk away. I wouldn't get on a plane or go on a road trip without the VIN and a picture of the VIN on the vehicle.

LRUk has a great reputation, so probably no worries there....

post the pics. Most LRUK trucks are usually very expensive (but also not very impressive for the money), so if your spidey senses went off, then you should likely follow your instinct.

I've just had 6 LRUK trucks here... While they look nice and they are in good shape, they are expensive and shagged out old engines... But that's the only way we can get them in legally.. Be careful of paint problems.. And shitty britpart latches going bad...

Check on roverlanders.bc.ca and see if there is anyone there that can help in your search. Huge BC group of rover nuts. Also take Tim up on his offer to go look at it. I can vouch for him as a great guy.
