There are some things that look 'Series' or early 90, but overall it doesn't look much like a Series Landy. However, the convertion may have been done before the newer laws came into play that tries to prevent people from just buying a 90 and swapping a couple of plates over to trick people into thinking it's the same tax exempt car.

I remember reading a thread on here a little while ago where someone bought a similar truck and it was taken away by the Police to check for legality. It was returned to him and all was OK so you just never know (or the Police are blind...) :lol:

Perhaps the owner should have mentioned that in the advert, then it would have avoided such misunderstandings.

I've never been called a "miserable rivet counter" before, not that I'd take offence, I have put 256 sealed 10mm long alu rivets into my 90 recently - I don't polish them though.

It was a perfectly valid statement I made, if your willing to state that it looks like in any way a series 2 vehicle then sorry Sir but you'd be lying and in the eyes of many and likely the LAW you'd would be missleading them.

In my experience if you don't question things that don't quite match up, then its your folly if you get nicked! or get your pride and joy taken away from you.

as you had obviously no intention of buying it,why all the commotion?i am pretty sure every one that uses this forum is familiar with the law as it stands,do you trawl ebay looking for ads of this type?perhaps your time would be better spent polishing your rivets!!

It's a good thing that these 'hybrids' are mentioned on this forum; even if this one may be legal (but how do you proof it has been build before new laws when you get involved in serious accident and insurance won't pay, and/or the police take the car?), most of these cars certainly aren't!
