Looking for a quick way to loose $200,000 to US Customs? This "1985" Land Rover "Defender" has been "rebuilt to new." Honestly? A two-hundred-thousand dollar Defender? I get that the seller, is trying to make some money—but it's no secret that there are way too many illegally imported Defenders in the United States. Now back to the vehicle, the "1985" Land Rover "Defender" 130 is listed as having only 200 miles, with a completely re-trimed leather and alacantra interior, and new 20 inch custom alloy wheels. The price is only $200,000, and is listed on eBay Motors in the USA. I wonder if it comes with a free pass through customs.
Curious what happens when you try to bring in a "rebuilt to new" Defender? Check out this letter from the NHTSA. [link] Curious to learn more about what is legal? East Coast Rover has a great rundown here. [link]
I'd love to import a Defender, and I'd love even more to be able to bring it in easily, instead of the vehicles constantly being flagged. What about you?
