I used Global AKA Julian to store and ship my 90.

Purchased my 90 from a dealer, had it shipped to Julian, he stored it for me and then shipped it when I asked. Prior to having my 90 shipped to Julian we discussed and agreed on rates and how things would be taken care of on both ends.

Everything went as we had agreed upon.

I should also mention that I had some parts shipped to Julian, it saved me a good amount of money having him install my seats and put the other parts in the back.

Seems like a good honest person from my dealings.

Been talking to Julian and have come up with the following:

110 Crew Cab
300 tdi, used 31000 miles
converted to LHD
all new interior
cage like mentioned above
under the seat heater
silver paint, new
reconditioned drive train (diff, axels, transmission etc)

He is quoting me 35k, and that includes shipping to Texas... does that sound reasonable to you guys?

Honestly, it does sound reasonable... Shawn Palmer and I just looked at a bastardized 110 DC with a carburated RR 3.5 motor, shitty auto trans conversion with no console and lots of cut corners and the guy wanted $45K. That truck was titled as a "2005 Land Rover" - No designation. I was told it was built by Richard Creed? Is that the Big Sky guy?

It was also a new galv chassis included in that quote... and it is an 1983 title.

Is this a quote to build one out, or is it already done? Personally I'd shell out for a couple day trip to the UK to see it in person before spending that kind of coin.

My only word of warning is to make sure the deal includes successful import and registration or something like that.
The EPA is really cracking down and if they find a 300 Tdi in a "1983" they could not allow it. Not saying they will, but just in case you should be clear up front on who owns what and who gets the money if you get a worst case import.

I agree... I would be off the the UK as well. I never buy anything that costly without seeing it first.

They have it in hand and are building it now... several interested parties... I am trying to avoid having to go over there and check it out... hence why I am asking about the reputation of this guy over there and the work that he has done. but you are probably right...a trip might be necessary.

Follow-up Post:

here is a pic of one that he has done before. This one has different wheels and a lift etc. but looks good to me?!

It's more that quality and condition are subjective, not a bash at Global. Take "Ron good" and "Jim good" for example. If someone tells you something is "good", meaning "Ron good", but you were expecting "Jim good", then you won't be happy. Now if you look at it then there is no room for error, nothing lost in translation or the camera, etc.

Take the trip, there's always another truck. Some of the best money I've spent on cars has been pre-purchase inspections on cars I didn't buy. Like Charles, this isn't a bash on Julien, who apparently has many perfectly happy clients, but 35k is 35k, and I want to know what every penny is getting me.

If you were spending 3500, I would not bother going over, but for 35K cash I would go over for the weekend to make sure you are happy with it. And make Julien take you out on the town.

If this is based on a 1983 110 is it possible that it is so far from the original vehicle it could fall under the "new vehicle" NHSTA there is a post on the "whats legal" section covering rebuilt vehicles. I

If I'm not mistaken, Richard Creed is the guy from BC?

Creed Evans is Big Sky, Richard Creed is in BC. Both have similar reputations.

I guess I should have Googled it... I assumed it was Big Sky.

I can tell you that to ton of corners were cut on this truck. I did not understand why someone would put very old RR gear in a supposedly quality build. Why would you put a RR 3.5 with a carburator, when updated Disco gear is so cheap.

Anyways, back to your regularly scheduled programing.

I do not know Chris Hinkle but I do know the guys at NTX Rover and I saw that truck when they were working on it. Very impressive truck for sure. The inerds of the truck are very impressive including the 15 inch drop down GPS monitor that was in the works when I saw it. I do agree that the silver truck is cool but I have to defend my friends here in Texas and say that Chris's truck is a true one of a kind first class rig. More to the point i think the Crew cabs are pretty cool.

Would anyone here be able to tell me the exact length of the load bed, with the tailgate down? I want to know if my dirtbike could fit in there.

Thanks so much!

It's like 3 inches, not much chance a bike is going in there.

In the "for what it's worth" category, there are a lot of companies that offer solutions to extend the bed of short-box pick ups... as your dirt bike is pretty light compared to the listed max. capacities, you may find a clean solution that gives you the length you need and relieves the chains on the tailgate from supporting the weight.

Unless it's a mini bike it's not going to fit. Better off with a 2 door 110, or 3 door like an ex-mod.
