Sell it as parts? You don't have the proper import documentation for the buyer to register/title in most states.

Spare Parts in Imported Vehicle

DOT has interest in. I thought it may be of help to some here. Please keep in mind this applys to separate parts shipments and
do not pertain to vehicle imports. For instance, if you want to bring in roof sides or take off doors you had better get pictures of the glass codes
on the glass before purchase and have whomever you are working with check them in the system or you will have a problem, since there is no access to freight once it ships and the information is required to get a release. Not new rules just a better system -ie other agencies can input into the entry screen like epa/dot/dept of ag. The list of agencies tied in was quite long.
Doug,
Any experience with CBP and shipping spare parts in the back of an imported vehicle? For example, parts needed for a LHD conversion shipped in boxes in the back of a 110.

Problem is once they go in a box or crate no one but customs has access to look @ tags, codes etc. The new system links a host of agencies to Customs computer system. Ie most any federal agency can access your entry real time.
Does any of this apply to replacement parts that are on the vehicle already prior to shipment from the UK to the US? Or is this just in regards to separate parts you are having shipped?

That's a roll of the dice as best I can tell. Frame, engine, configuration seem to be most important

UK v5 ownership docs

I am purchasing a defender from a private seller in the UK through a third party (a friend). I have the option of putting my name on the v5 ownership documents from the sale, and mailing in to get a v5 with my name on it, or instead putting the third party's name and then he would transfer ownership to me when he exports.


Looking for any concerns with either option for import to the US or generating title/registration in Florida.


Thanks!

If you have a UK address, then it may be easiest to have the V5 in your name at your UK address. If you have time for the paper trail process, transfer the V5 to your friend, then if you have any issues with the paperwork in the US, you can always call him, ask him to sign, confirm etc Otherwise (having just done this myself) have the seller sign and send you the complete V5 document and have him write a letter to the DVLA with the all the details VIN etc (or even a photocopy of the log book) informing them of the export. Dont just use the section on the V5 to notify the export. Having stood in the inspection office and then a local DMV tax office to title it in the US it was all much easier having the complete V5 document to hand.

Hope that helps

Dont know. I'd be guessing I'm afraid. Although its hard to think why that would be a problem.

That's not mine but it would look similar when not deployed.

Import Australia. One for the guru's

So I am looking at 1982 109 Wagon currently for sale in Australia. The vin shows it it left the factory with a 3.5 V8. The seller has listed it with a 3.9 Isuzu diesel. After a lengthy conversation with the seller he states that this is was one of 6 that were a prototype that were fitted with a Isuzu by JR Australia on arrival. They were then delivered to the Australian Army as part of the trails for the perentie project. The Australian compliance plate fitted shows the Isuzu.
He says JR Australia has it documented as being the case.
My question is will this be denied entry by customs ??
Any advise welcome
thanks in advance

Gather all the documentation you can from the original sources and you may be able to pass it through the system. Never take someones word but get it in official documentation. Lots of Rovers stories but importation process doesn't care about stories.

If I had to guess customs is going to decode VIN, see that it was supposed to be fitted with a 3.5 v8 and pork you.

But thats just a guess, maybe they would use the support documentation but its unlikely they will give 2 shits about the paperwork...

The VIN says it's a V8, but in lettering above the VIN says 4cyl diesel. Understand they were flat packed from UK without the V8. On arrival Land Rover Aust put the diesel in.

Im going to write to customs and include all the documentation I can get from JRA Australia together with pics of both the vin plate and Australian compliance plate showing the diesel.
If I can get confirmation in writing in advance then I might pull the trigger on it.

My company relocated me to the UK for the next year and I've take the full opportunity to purchase a very nice (and bone stock) '93 110 CSW. She won't be ready for export until next year, but in the meantime I plan on a few upgrades while I'm enjoying the English country-side here.

I do want to ensure that the truck will continue to be legal, so I'm keeping the modifications as minimal as possible. Any concerns with the following?

- LT77 to R380 (my biggest import worry)
- Replace steelies with alloys
- New interior (exmoor seats, headliner and carpeting)
- roof rack
- TD5 dash
- intercooler upgrades
- various minor cosmetic mods

Any thoughts on the best way to ship back spares (i.e. my original steelies, etc) and parts I pick up here? I'm assuming CBP has a dim look on loaded trunks.

thanks,
-vanroth
