Defender 110 on OC CL CA Registered...

Hi Guys, was searching on the forum and elsewhere for more info on this 110 CA registered and couldn't seem to find anything...
I'm still in search for a good 110 (i don't mind a little work, but no basketcase) CA registered preferred and surely one that isn't blacklisted or a candidate for Homeland Security attempting to confiscate.

Here's the link... Land Rover Defender 110 California Registered

I've been looking in neighboring states, but it seems to be CA registered already is probably the way to go. Please let me know your thoughts, thanks in advance.

CalVIN shows the VIN as a 83 or 84' yet it is listed as a 73' while riding a coiler chassis? Which one or two of the three is not correct?
If this IS titled as a 73', best to stay clear and continue looking.

Does this mean he stamped a 1973 VIN into the truck and registered it as a Series? - 'The first owner started with the 1973 chassis building from ground up.'

With a bit of searching looks more like a typo ... and it's '83. Also the VIN number in the CL ad is slightly wrong ... the streeing and transmission is I and it should be 1.

OK let me ask him and see what the deal is. I believe he did say this is registered and titled as a '73 but i could be mistaken.

If it is registered as a 1973 but has a replacement chassis that has already been stamped by the CHP, it could be legit.

Yes but if te seller has not followed the proper procedures for getting it inspected then it's probably not something you want to be getting into.

What would need to get done? Or is it too late?

------ Follow up post added April 6th, 2015 05:30 PM ------

He said he did have a schedule with chp but never went through with it since he was able to title it through dmv, car is currently registered etc. he has never had any issues re-registering over the years. Not sure where to go from here...

Update- just spoke to him in detail and it seems he went through inspection by an agent/rep via AAA dmv in SoCal who vin verified the car and titled it as a '73. Thanks again for your help here...

Don't take my word for it because I don't know the exact procedure. But I believe it involves showing them the original chassis with the vin still legible and showing them that it's no longer usable and will be destroyed, and showing them a proof of purchase for the new chassis. Again, best to check with a vin officer for the correct procedure. Just be aware that the California Highway Patrol is the agency responsible for verifying chassis swaps, no just the DMV.

Got it, thanks Mack!
Really starting to think I should really just be looking at NAS Defenders, seems a whole lot easier.

This truck was in SC before. Probably a Wilmington import.
