What makes you think that, are restomods now illegal? In Canada you can import anything over 15 yrs old, in the US I believe it is 25yrs, so this would be fine in the US. As a matter of fact, the Veh. was done and registered in the states.

Do you find the standard ride with leaf springs too harsh or have you upgraded to aftermarket softer leafs?

Next time you have it out can you take some pics of the engine along with some full body shots out of the car port please?

Im re doing the leaf springs right now because the fall apart and the local guy in my country(uruguay) is going to make the leaf springs out o 3/16 material stead o 5.5 mm the is wath the stock are except the main leaf the will be same us stock to avoid problems .
I will take pictures next month went i go back to see my mon .
This 109 is diesel 2.3 , all original except wire harness very simple under the hood ,does 12km per liter and work really good for me for few reasons .
Anual registration is none because o the age ,insurance $200 a year,after this expence on the leaf springs and new ball joints and steering box rebuilt will last another 50 years
Everyone looks a it in the summer went all the tourist show up.

And the best one is the my Dad enjoy it went locals go look for him to take a new super duper 4x4 truck the go stuck on the swamp o mud because the tourist wants to show his girlfriend o wife his new $80k truck ( He charges in Johnny walker black label for his service )

Diesel in Western Australia is about $1.50 a litre and if the conversion widget is correct that would be Euro1.33. The way we're going we will be up to you in a few years

Didnt take any pics of the undercarrage, but definitely an 84 chassis.

Some one spent a lot of $$$ to have a modern Defender here
There isn't a single part of that made in 1984, except maybe the VIN plate, chassis is 1999 or later. If you look at the rear crossmember, the big hole to the right of the towing hitch holes didn't appear till the TD5 was released.

Yes, seems a little suspect doesn't it. Tell me, does '99 and newer Defenders have open knuckles or do they still have swivel balls?

I'm not sure what the new ones are like but the TD5's we used to have at work had swivel housings although of a different design to the ones on my 1970 SWB

The Frames / Chassis hasn't changed that much since 1984.
If your 1984 Frame has rusted / holes in it, just buy a new galvanized one. You can choose which Motor mounts, etc.
Sure, there are different rear crossmembers, but they all fit.

The Southern California Land Rover community lost one of their own in a horrible shooting October 12th. Dave Caouette, 64. Sitting in his Land Rover just at the wrong place at the wrong time. Link to news story.

Thought I'd post a note and some pictures.

Nah nothing to do with restomod or kit title issues.

If it was titled on the '84 chassis it's essentially a VIN swapped truck. You think you can march that little beauty into an inspection/emissions station and tell everyone it's a 1984? They took an '84 chassis and built a 2011 truck on top of it using the '84 VIN. The bureaucracy may be stupid but it ain't that stupid.

Some states don't have inspections and many counties are emissions testing free. But the TD5 isn't a legal motor in the USA. I'm not saying you can't get away with it...there's always the "off road use only" loophole. But hooo boy buyer beware before they shell out $80k or whatever for that truck.

There's a reason it's up in Canada for sale.

Which shop built it and in which state did they register it?

There's a thread over on D90.com about a guy out in CA in litigation right now for a similar kind of shenanigan.

that makes me laugh, a 2.5liter 5 cylinder diesl is illegal but you guys in teh USA can have a 6.8 liter (or what ever) petrol V8, which is the most fuel efficient
