ex-NATO '86 90

Klapmust mentioned to me a 90 located at a used car dealership in Arlington called Washington Blvd motors so I stopped by today to look at it. Astonishingly, it's actually very straight. Couldn't really find any rust to speak of. It's an '86 LHD with the 2.5 in it. Quick and dirty white paint and otherwise very stock. I spoke with the owner of the dealership who was reasonably knowledgable, he's working with a cousin in France to get them refurbished by some firm over there ("legion something" he thought). Apprently he's got another 90 and what he described as a 4 door soft top 110 on it's way over. Asking a very negotiable $26K for this.

No affiliation to them, don't konw them from Adam, etc.

That could be a fun little trail or parade truck if it was about $10-15k less than that. $27k gets you a nice NAS ST these days.

The upside is that with those military style front lights that screw out instead of being secured by screws, you wouldn't have to try to figure out which screws from McMaster Carr fit in there.

Maybe we should see if McMaster Carr sells military screw on light assemblies! That would fix everything!

I keep thinking that there must be a way to get some LHD from France over here....
License plate is the "old" type, so this vehicle is titled in the Dept 28 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eure-et-Loir ) and has not been sold (well... At least, not been put back on the road if it was sold) since Oct 15th 2009 since it has the old-style license plate.

BTW, the 2.5 is not a "fast" engine but very easy to work on and very dependable (if treated properly) very good in most off-road situations. Though, I never drove a 90 with that engine, only 110s.

I am pretty sure even on the older style plates if it sold within the dept. it can stay on the same plates without changing. Ask for its most recent controle technique and you will know is road status from France.

He needs to put on some headlight surrounds for $27k. Or maybe two more doors, and a longer frame.

Nice catch on the surrounds. Drives me crazy that the door handles, axle flanges, and lugs are painted white. Other than that I actually like it, something about a white 90 with a tan top has a cool look. Before I found my NAS and had thrown in the towel I was thinking of doing a build along these lines.

Since Oct 15th 2009, the new license plate is not assigned to a "vehicle - dept" combination anymore (like it used to) but to "vehicle" only (i.e. does not change ever for the "life" of the vehicle regardless of where the vehicle does [in France?]).
Since that date, any change on the "Carte grise" [registration] (address, owner, etc.) switches the vehicle to the new style of plates automatically. [New plates don't have to include any dept info (can be added as an FYI if people so desire when buying new style license plates); I liked knowing where folks were from... Helped you understand/guess if they potentially might not know the area/etc. and how "nice" you needed to be! ]

I agree that green/gray square paper (passenger side) should tell us when is the last "controle technique" (aka "MOT" or "State inspection/emission") it went through.

saw one similar to this one here in Costa Rica but it had the half canvas top and a rack off the bumpers for a canoe. It was SWEET! some trust fund teenage tican driving it but he was super nice. Was getting out of the surf so no pic but if I see him again I'll snap a pic.

Yeah, that's too much moolah for a truck that's only a chromasome away from a series truck.

Is that a R380 Trans? No trim inside the vent area. All of the parts do not look like they match the year. But all in all it looks cosmetically nice.
