Santana in Alabama

Was perusing ebay pondering what rovers are available for a second vehicle, and came across this. Interesting description, I wonder how its registered as an '81.

Just noticed it's got a very split personality too, UK "56" registration plate on the rear, relating to the second half of 2006, and a "B" plate on the front, relating to 1984.

They've had it for sale for years at this point. The previous owner was some porn star or porn exec.

I never liked how those Spanish trucks looked. If you read the whole ebay listing, I think it says that it is a 2006. Then again, I might be wrong.

It's 100% a 2006. It has clear California title. eBay doesn't have a santana category nor does it recognize the VIN.

I like it. I'd rock it if it were LHD, updated dash and trim looks nice. probably does a decent job keeping noise down.

I'm thinking of converting it. Just backed up with so many projects at the moment.

Didn't mean to dug up a subject that had already done to death before, I just thought it would be interesting when I saw it on ebay. I was surprised to see one over here. It wasn't my intention to insinuate anything about how the truck is currently titled, or even how it came in. I still don't see why it would be sporting a front UK registration plate from am exported Land Rover 110 that was first registered in the UK on 18th January 1985. Why not just take that registration plate off and be done with it.
