I would not take the risk! New chassis. new engine and many parts. Will be classified as a new car. Will be interesting to see what VIN they have on the engine, probably mid 90? Vin on chassis, probably none, and VIN on td5 dash mid 2000?

just my 2 cents.

yea... some masochist at customs would love to crush that dream. All the importation stuff clearly says you can't do modifications abroad and import under the 25 year exemption, and this would be on the one extreme end of things...

don't see the problem, Julian and the guy from Holland bring in trucks all the time that have been completly rebuilt abroad. How can they do it and someone else can't? Me thinks someone on this board will buy it and you will see it for sale in 3 months for $60k! Everyone is poo pooing it to keep you from buying. I'm not saying it meets the letter of the law, it clearly does not, but others do it. British Pound is down against the Dollar, go for it.

Just because you can get it here, and even get it off the docks doesn't mean you're ever scott-free. (insert theme song to jaws here).

Because of this we now build all our high end trucks in the USA. I have 2 new business partners, a facility located in Virginia, so its kinda handy as my shipper of choice is also in Virginia. My new website will be up in 5-6 days.



I'm all for him selling it to the USA, if he does sell it, good luck to him. i hope he doesn't roro it because the buyer will have just wasted 17,000!!!

original chassis but what about the rest. 200, 300tdi engines, new dash,seats, etc. it's just risky business and a crap shoot it seems to me. the illegal imports of a few have ruined it for the rest of us. Customs is on the lookout for Land Rovers now I guess.

Julian didn't you just sell a crew cab 110 with a 300 tdi on Ebay? was that listed in the Uk and not the US? or you did the mods here in the USA? just wondering.

That 90 is hideous. I would rather stab pub darts into my ballsack than be caught driving that thing. It looks like a 6 year old retarded orangutan drew it with smeared feces.

Richards Chassis has its own chassis' number for starters. I would imagine that would be a huge issue at customs... the fact that a chassis has its own number unique from the V5 (note that I am sure the V5 vin is not stamped onto the chassis).

The only thing original from 1984 is likely the vin plate under the hood and rear panel.

Why not actually build a puma for that money?

Also, for 17,000GBP it is in need of a wheel alignment and a they could have sprung for an ECR/custom style in-dash GPS considering the money they saved on the 300tdi they likely picked up for nothing (that has god knows how many miles on it).

I will say, however, it does look nice.

Quite right but mty orange truck wasn't originally built for resale, it was built for the 2011 Bullrun Rally and my sponsor backed out, so its for sale.

I listed it in the USA and it was built here in the UK last year. as I mentoned above it was built for the rally, and built RHD on purpose, so if we got stopped the cops would go to the wrong window and we could have fun waving a spare steering wheel out the window etc!.. If I converted it to LHD I'd be after far more money.

So that begs the question how "far" more is LHD worth??? 10%, 20% or more?
is factory LHD worth more than a conversion?

From what I've seen, LHD can add from $5-10K to the value of a vehicle, if either natural LHD or professionally done conversion they are about equally valuable.

If it's a shoddy LHD conversion with little things like the wipers forgetting to be switched, not switching the handbrake to the correct side, steering wheel not properly centered, and adding a new heater then that can be reduced significantly.

Not an expert by any means, but just my perception based on a long-ass hunt for my 110 way back when.

This is pretty accurate, as a good conversion here with all the correct parts can cost as much as 6000. In my experience generally the re-built LHD trucks tend to sell for as much as upto $20k more than the rebuilt RHD trucks. My Orange truck is priced at $40,000 as this is how much I am into her at cost! seriously!
