I think it is fantastic that some business practices are so especially bad that they become a perma-link on the nhsta website to use a case-study for others.

Notice that this one is titled "kill"

https://isearch.nhtsa.gov/files/kill.ztv.html

My favorite excerpt

"... In contrast, you have no legal or commercial relationship to Rover. In fact, Rover has specifically advised you that it will not furnish you with cars, nor will it provide information as to the compliance status of the British Mini with respect to the U.S. standards, let alone compliance of a Mini manufactured for the Dutch market which you propose to import. "

Bill, Freebie's wife contacted the guy and he said $38000 Cdn $ for the two  .At today's exchange that would be $30000 USD.
Paulo has his Portuguese Moke here on Mini Mania and you won't have to cross the pond to get it.

deb. I think the blue moke and red moke still in france.. btw.. they want $36k USD for the pair... and just an added note for the wanker of the year..Spank.. might take note. there is FIVE year statute of limitations on importing cars.. for criminal charges. NOT like there was anything Illegal about the chokes..The reason I know about the FIVE year limitations was that the US ADA in Wilmington NC went after Dr Aaron Richardt and SEIZED 78 land rover defenders for re vinning.. turns out the STUPIC bastards at Jag/ Land rover North America gave the ADA bad INFO. about the sequence of the tenth digit on the EURO made land rovers.. this the same ADA that was SEIZING all the funds from local Mexican food places.. seems he LOST the cases and had to return ALL the land rovers and ALL the SEIZED cash. and now HE is under investigation for FRAUD. Seems all the all the public vins and confidential vins on the frames MATCHED..on all the land rovers you can slither back under your rock NOW... later bc

Quote:

Dear Mr. Cox:

...You incorrectly assume that retention of the old chassis alone is sufficient to excuse a vehicle from compliance with the FMVSS. The agency's opinions over the years have been premised upon the fact situation of a vehicle in use being modified to incorporate a new body on its original chassis and one which retained its original title. We have said that the resulting vehicle would not be considered a new motor vehicle subject to the FMVSS . The agency did not intend the word chassis to be interpreted narrowly but meant the term to indicate an assemblage that retained the original frame and all vehicle components other than the body, including the power train, brake system, suspension, and tires and wheels.

The vehicles you intend to build would have "all new parts except for the chassis or subframes, including "the new [body] shell," "new suspension," and "new engine and transmission," while "the old chassis, sub frame is retained after being sandblasted." In our view, vehicles assembled using equipment as you have described it to us would be new motor vehicles which must comply with all applicable FMVSS in effect as of the date of assembly, and be certified as complying if they are to be sold for use in the United States. Among other things, such vehicles must have a VIN meeting the requirements of 49 CFR Part 565.

Sincerely,
Frank Seales, Jr.
Chief Counsel

Life and regulations are much more laid back in the southern states compared to California.

Excellent build quality!



I especially like the tropical fan...



How is a Choke with an A+ motor with a verto flywheel and A+ trans considered a 1967? Hmmm? Funny how kit car stuff works in hillbilly land. Wonder what the title said when it was sold by a LICENSED DEALER??? was he STONED or just stupic????
