I purchased a 1996 defender 110 out here in italy a few years ago. I think I made a series of errors. First when purchasing the defender I noticed the vin on the chassis was different than the one on the Title but not (for what I thought) was a substantive way. It was missing the 2nd letter in the VIN. The last six numbers are the serial. Time goes by and I forget about it. I change the clutch, rebuild the engine, gearbox, brakes, etc... Finally, I am prepping to ship it back home and I verify the numbers when performing the customs check and the export paperwork. The only vin left is on the chassis and it is off by that letter. Has anyone ever heard of this? Did I screw myself? I already sent a photo into the LR headquarters to see if they have any history on this. Waiting is killing me. I thought you all might know something.
