With the proper modifications (and $$$), couldn't it be made to US Spec? I saw a 2005 Defender 110 in PA a few months ago. It was the most beautiful LR I have ever seen. It had US plates and stickers on it (I don't remember if they were NY, NJ, or PA plates, but it was one of those). I think you could make it happen if you really wanted.

You talking about the one at the ROVERS sort-out? I believe that was grey market also. Registered as a 70s series. Too much risk involved, A) if the feds find out, it'll be crushed. B) If you get in an accident, and insurance company finds out, you'll be denied coverage for lying about what it was, and then they'll probably report it to the FEDs.

If it was easy, and was anywhere near affordable.. you'd see a bunch of us driving defenders.

Ryan, you sure? I thought I saw the stickers (registration or inspection or something like that in the windshield) said 04 or 05. If it was gray market, then you are right. Too much of a risk.
I can print you up a sticker if you really want :) Nah usually what they do is swap VINs with like a 1970's Series to register them. Like I said.. you'd see a lot more out there if it was legally possible.
