The ITVs are diesel. Not all states/counties have diesel I/M testing.In CT I can reg anything over 20 years old as antique with pretty much no restriction on use. Anything under 20 years old, that size, there is only commercial registration. Nowhere to drive it anyways. The growler might be interesting if you can fix most of it with off the shelf parts. Even though its newer it smaller and could prob be reg as a pickup truck. That size it would just have to pass emissions for its year. Not emissions exempt until 25 years old.
I was checking the check book when I first saw the ITV's. Decided it was not the best toy for me and the local mud pit.The ITVs are diesel. Not all states/counties have diesel I/M testing.
I don't know this to be the case, but I suspect that welding may have something to do with addressing reports I've seen floating around about related vehicle fatalities.I see it says the rear steering has been welded to the frame. I’m not sure why, or if and how it can be circumvented.
I could see that. I didn’t know anything about these vehicles, or even know if their existence until last week. I got out before they came around. They sure are cool though.I don't know this to be the case, but I suspect that welding may have something to do with addressing reports I've seen floating around about related vehicle fatalities.
Folks on this site by and large know there can be unsafe aspects of the vehicles we love and operate. That we mitigate with knowledge. But the general public... I just hope nobody gets hurt by these things.
It was a 2006 and it went for that price because it was the last one so everyone started fighting for it, I was gunning for the one with least miles but gave up when I bid $30k . Sorry that I made the price jump to whoever bought it, hopefully once people have gotten their bank accounts depleted on the mk23's a mk31 will pop up that I can buy at a good price .A newer 2010 MTVR went for $35K plus the 20% for fees & taxes, way too rich for my blood & bank account.
Do they need any more?There are only a few of MK31s slated to come thru. So don't hold your breath on a good price.
Also realize that even at those prices the surplus giants can still sell a truck of that quality to another country for double that maybe even triple.... I know Morocco just paid along the lines of $60,000 per truck for some M923A2s and M931A2s with an order of about 40 trucks total.
