Looking an importing a 1990 Defender...

I am thinking of importing a 1990 (or earlier) Land Rover Defender 110 from the UK, but am unsure of the VRT charge and the cost of road tax and insurance or even where to get insurance from. Can I tax and insure a commercial 4x4 for personal use if it's 30 years old and vintage? I don't have a business that I can register it against and am just a regular PAYE worker. This will only be a run-around for me and my son so not big mileage. Any help with these queries would be greatly appreciated.

Can I import a Defender as an 11-seat version?

I am considering importing a Land Rover Defender 110 Utility or Station Wagon into Ireland. Can I add two rear bench seats to either of these vehicles prior to importing it to make it an 11-seater? Will this allow me to avail of a lower VRT cost once it's over a nine-seat capacity?

I want to import an ex-military vehicle!

Hello there,

Just read your ex-military fascination article. Very good. But I have already been bitten. I bid (lost) recently on a Pinzgauer. I can find no info on importing them. Whether there is a restriction. I would want to convert it to a camper for tax reasons. What do you think?

Regards,

Barry Steen
