Well 98 was the year of the 50th.... but how it got here is the mystery... they were not NAS approved due to 1998 needing airbags.

I wonder if it's one of the ones imported as parts, and if the VIN is SALLDVBM4WA156368

A few of these were imported back then. I saw a couple RHD ones for sale in the US in '99. It was much easier to get grey market trucks in back then.

Someone on here is selling the parts to one.

Horsey, how do you even know the VIN for this truck?

i talked to this guy on the phone a year or two ago. looks like the same one. maybe its not though. its a true 1998, legally registered. i want to say he got it in the us under that exception where they allow you to import one car that otherwise woudlnt be allowed. im not familiar with the exception other than someone on here termed it the bill gates exception due to his porsche (959??) that was impounded.

It is called the "Show and Display" law, Here is a link to the actual law
http://www.nhtsa.gov/cars/rules/impo...osd072003.html

Summary From Wikipedia

The "Show and Display" rule[1], introduced by the United States federal National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 1999, made it legal for car collectors to import cars for use in their private collections that would otherwise not be street legal in the United States. With certain special vehicles, such as the Porsche 959, the manufacturer would not be willing to subject the car to the required testing to qualify it for normal import to the United States. The testing does involve, among other things, destructive crash tests. Vehicles imported under the "Show and Display" law can only be used to a limited degree. The maximum annual mileage of the vehicle may not exceed 2,500 miles.

I wonder how you get around the crash test?

10 of us could get together, buy 11 110 puma defenders, and crash test the 11th defender. we all would have the added expense of 1/10th of the sacraficial truck but it still seems like a good economic proposition.

There has been a thread or two about this truck before. I thought it was decided that it was a Japanese spec truck.

There is no "passing" to my understanding other than the bumper tests.

The dealer principal I previously worked for ( http://www.landrovercarolinas.com/index.htm ) has 2 Camel Trophy trucks (Discovery & Freelander) that were both imported under this regulation. We used them as display vehicles at the dealerships. He's had them both since the late 1990's.
