    That's my point. Once you swap your chassis, axles and transmission and engine, in the eyes of DVLA, it's no longer the 1972 car.
    My Defender only had it's 90 chassis replaced with a shortened heavy duty 110, Range Rover axles and a 200TDi engine and box thrown onto and it's on a Q. It's still basically a 90, as opposed to that 'Series 3'. Has anybody spotted a S3 part on it?
    Even the doors could be early 90/110! I've got the same on mine.

    Not necessarily. When i worked on the motorway the B reg 110 i used to use had the sliding windows and didn't even have a door panel on the inside. Just outer skin and frame.

    The number plate is 1972, but my guess is that's about it.

    ?? That's a Series. Perhaps they should just swap adds, both would be more accurate. Is it me or has the world gone mad?

    at least this seller isn't trying to claim it's a 2a or tax exempt. It is a 1989 90, modified of course with a Series 2a front end ( and other bits too). The trouble the owner might have come MOT time is the positioning of the headlights, too high and too near the centre of the vehicle for 1989 motors IIRC.

    eBay isn’t a true price benchmark.

    It is if you consider that something's only worth as much as somebody is prepared to pay;)

    Over time I find it pretty accurate if you only look at the "sold" prices. There is an economic model for auction pricing, the essense is that the true value of an object is the amount 2 people are prepared to pay. This is because the winning bidder may have over paid and so the value is what they can sell for, which is the amount of the loosing bid since that bidder would pay that price to have it. So the value is taken to be the last loosing bid since this is a value that at least 2 people agree on. E-bay uses graded increments so its not always obvious what the loosing bid was but if you drop down a % or 2 from the sold price you won't be far off.
