did you search mountainminis here? Even a little searching would have uncovered these. Clearly…run.

"this seller is untrustworthy, stay away"

Ouch. That kind of feedback has to sting and be bad for future business. Caveat emptor.

Even not knowing the buyer.

Several red flags.

FIRST the tags were first registered in 2010
look it up here https://www.vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/

Second. Alloy wheels were not original

Third. Push button handles, were they around in 88?

Fourth Defender sticker on front (i know it' just a sticker, but it raises an eyebrow for further investigation.)

Plus it looks too new and to nice. I would buy something with obvious age and patina

He continues to login is daily.

CBP: if you haven't figure Bill out yet, he lives in Earl NC and has a "business" down the street. He imports trucks like this advert zing them on Craigslist and elsewhere. He also imports Knock off mini mikes from China.

The seller isnt Bill Cox, it is David Ellison in the UK. Ive had the unfortunate experience buying a few trucks from him and the experience was miserable. Completely misrepresented trucks and then he goes silent. The truck he is advertising there on eBay will never, ever get into the US, ever.

As for Bill Cox, he is a riot. Selling POS RHD 110s in NC showing 3 crappy pictures of the truck, a picture of a piece of paper and a skunk.....he's a real brainiac. Be sure to bid him $7k on his truck and see the response that it elicits. He's not much for bed side manor or customer service.....
