Don't you just hate that ... I always love my VIN numbers re-stamped just right!

Actually as long as the VIN number is the correct one and has been through a UK re-build inspection it doesn't matter what size or font it is.

You are wrong about this truck,although you have seen it before. Its the Foleys Specialist Vehicles build you saw being finished up in February.

Not that I want to be lambased, but why are we criticizing this guy's truck?

1 - It is Gorgeous
2 - if he did a re-stamp , more power to him ( at least he has the cojones to do what many of US simply think to do )
3 - I agree, wether right or wrong fonts, once approved , it is party time
4 - I will sell Shrek and get that one in a NY minute
5 - I am wearing a Nomex suit, so let it be ;-)
6 - Did I say it is GORGEOUS?

All I am saying is that the profit margin is insane on it, not that it is or is not legit.

Maybe that is the risk premium.

17k UKP = 25k US

Well when you compare it to rebuilds here and what they go for in "as new condition"-50ish seemed reasonable but its still climbing....

There is a partenership between some British and Canadian entrepenuers who are doing the same thing. Pretty sure their trucks are over $50k as well. Check out Roverdefenders.com

Ron,

Don't get me wrong I agaree, but assuming is one of those he assumed risks and other expenses

Lets say he bought the 17.9 ukp = US 27,600
add donor 1.8 ukp = US 2,760
labor on donor ;-) 1.0 ukp = US 1,536 = or could be 6 times higher if it isn't one of those
shipping ( container ) 4.0 ukp = US 6,140
Customs + importer US 2,000
and could be other / TOTAL US 40,036

so 25% profit after all that risk doesn't sound too bad

sorry doug my mistake, i thought it was the other truck. this foleys truck was chassis swapped onto a genuine new old stock land rover new black chassis. its a bargin at the price it is, if he was to call me i could line him up a buyer in the $80,000mark.
it came in the container doug shared with me when i shipped my clients truck, the main difference between my clients and this is the one we built had a galv chassis, wolf wheels, NAS cage, Patriot roof rack, Black Rack exmoor trim interior, new sailsbury rear axle, ours also had a/c.

------ Follow up post added April 13th, 2010 06:31 PM ------

that other white 110 i mentioned above went roro into ny

so 25% profit after all that risk doesn't sound too bad
chassis swap labour is £4000 usually
new chassis is £1500 incl delivery
recharging a/c £100
1983/4/5 donor generally now these are over £2000.00
UK mot £50
fedex for paperwork £40.00

Fair enough points all, and it looks like the donor prices are climbing. Foleys has them listed for 20k UKP w/o AC. They used to be 15k UKP or 17k UKP with AC.

http://users.autoexposure.co.uk/pdfs...0410065616.pdf

Of course, when you are done, you still have a 1983/84/85 donor and an as new 300tdi 110 chassis to sell off.

Yeah I priced this out last year but never pulled the trigger. Low 40s if you did it yourself so $50K with it here seems quite reasonable to me. Except it will sell for a lot more

If your wife hadn't just bought you a rover......
As Julian said I imported this trck sight unseen for a lady in Florida who had bought it . Apparently she and her husband don't like the way it rides and have decided to part with it. I drove it about 5 miles (couldn't resist) and it was as described. While I'm surprised its for sale, I'm really interested to see where it sells>

Which part of "it will sell for a lot more" leads you to believe this cheap bastard is going to be bidding on it?
