Had to get CO issued VIN as RSA VINs do not comply. Not sure why CO has O (not a zero) and I (not a one). Wired, I know.
This is a sale by owner - not a dealer!

Now a word from her majesty...

Hello Americans,
I was born in South Africa in 1988 and I lived in Port Elizabeth for most my life. I'm what you call a "seasoned traveler" as my owners loved to roam all around our beautiful country. I've seen all of South Africa's borders -- North, South, East and West -- as well as Namibia. The animals I've seen, the sunsets I've witnessed, what a life! I've heard America has some beautiful scenery too and am looking forward to new adventures state-side.

Fun Fact:
My owner was a real doctor, I mean mechanic! He loved me so much he built my twin sister out of an aeroplane! Let me explain... My owner decided to build his own aeroplane, so he bought a kit and assembled it in his barn. He took inspiration from the thousands of hassle free kilometers traveled with me and decided to fit the plane with a 3.5 L V8 -- just like mine! He mounted it upside down and converted it for altitude. He always said he did it so he'd "have a spare". We'll I'm still running strong and she's still flying today!

Thanks for looking and cheers!
Matthew

Matt showed me this truck via FaceTime and it looks pretty squared away. If I wanted a gas motor I would have flown up to check it out in person. GLWTS!

I can't imagine a Rover V8 airplane engine could be any worse then some of the GE engines I've worked on.....

In the F-16 world all stories about GE failures or major problems ended with "the jet burned down"

Only a few bolts hold those gas motors in, a bunch more hold the chassis in!
