Hmm, that letter that he has basically says "Thanks for putting up the Bond, but this letter means nothing until the truck is brought up to regulations" ... anyone have a Carfax account? Run the VIN# SALLDHM68VA112389 ... there are 3 records apparently there, but I dont have an account..

i have seen this truck up close at a auction in ct. those stripes are made from rubber and looked terrible. the truck however was very nice from what i can remember. he also had a green one with more miles. his was a foreign guys. he wanted tons of $$ for them. needless to say they did not get sold or even bid on for that matter.

Hmm so it does look legal.. says that is passed road inspection and the bond was released.. I wouldn't be too concerned about the mileage.. I bet the person who wrote it down was just like, "yeah 59k and change" ...

Bloody hell, it would be nice to find out how they did that. In 3 weeks no less. It would seem to me someone could charge a *reasonable* fee to keep doing this with the same vehicle many times over and be profitable.

I agree the mileage difference was probably due to someone rounding off.

I thought both were imported by a shop in Rutland, VT who jumped through the hoops for the approval process (i.e. legit). Maybe they did go o another dealer at auction. But those trucks ( the green one as well), were on autotrader for at least a year (which makes sense).

So there is a way to bring 1997 110s into the US through the federalization process? I remember a while back reading the list of vehicles that could be and don't remember seeing it...

On a side not, with 2008 coming up in a matter of months are people lining up LHD '83's to bring in and then convert to spec under the 25 year exemption?

I don't know about lining up, but I have been watching the pricing and it looks like people realize they now carry a premium.

My guess is that a lot of *ahem* "1983" 110s will start showing up early next year; they'll just be *ahem* "restored" to 2007 specs. You see this alot with Classic Minis.

Does that mean that if you have a legaly imported 1983 that you bring up to *ahem* 2007 spec that insurance and liabilty will be legit? Could this legitimize some of the Rover companys that just stretch a 90 to a 110 or make a series into a new spec truck? The one thing that always kept me from going that route was getting into an accident and then losing everthing because I was driving something that was not what I was insured for.

my brother in-law is from turkey, i had him look around for me this summer when he was there to see if he could find one, he found a few mid to late 80's models for dirt cheap! but no 83's...

That's why they have stated value insurance.
