I have learned a lot about it from this forum...
The builder of this truck contacted me and now I have a lot more info..
the truck was built using donors in 1999.. the frame was new as was the body..
how it became a 1998 is still a little bit of a mystery to me..
I was told the the vehicle may have been sold at an auction and a replacement vin was assigned..
I was advised to look for the builder and get the info from the origional donor as to title it with that vin..
in all respects the truck does have a lot of newer parts and mods but would be concidered with the drivetrain to be a 200Tdi...
I bought the truck from a Rover and 4x4 dealer a couple of years ago and I didn't know anything about it other then it had a NY replacement vin and I was told it was 100% acurate and legal..
only recently did I find out more of its history of when it was restored in the states..
this truck is a very nice 110 and I do plan on researching its origional vin or the next owner can..
Michigan researched the title and issued it without a problem..
the title says 1998 Land Rover sta wgn...
I hope this helps..
