It's a lashed up Series 3, not a Defender. The only reason I'd buy that other than for parts is if it was dirt cheap, because here in the UK it's old enough to qualify for free road tax, and as such has an inherent value if it's got a registration document to back it up.

A real, coil-sprung 110 in better nick could be yours for that price, and they're old enough to import early models to the US now.

Past any questions of motive for such a project or the quality of the switch (the dash looks home made), is something like this even legal?

Motive: Because it's fun to drive RHD.

16 bit? Back when we was kids we only got a single bit on Christmas, as a treat
And we had to share it!


I'm guessing he saw F&F: Tokyo Drift, and assumed a proper sports car had a LHD to RHD conversion.
But that's like saying all proper sports cars must have scissor doors.

Forget it. I'm going to smoke some crack now.

I just noticed he spelled half as 'hafe'
I'm impressed.

You see, this is why 4th gen Accord coupes are going to be extinct in a few years, because of meat whistles like this guy. I know they are a typical 90's era Japanese ecobox, but I'd love to have a clean 92-93 Accord coupe for the work commute. Unfortunately everyone I look at is either either a rusty unmaintained nightmare, a previously salvaged wreck that was rebuilt by some shady Russians in their back yard with chicken wire and a come-a-long, or riced out to oblivion (But never this bad - jesus)
