What cars are legal to import?

Depending on where you are from, you may have different restrictions surrounding vehicle imports.

If we have not listed a car you searching for, send us a message as there is a high chance we can get it into our inventory.

For example, the import law in the USA is as follows:

“The day a car reaches its 25th birthday, it’s legally allowed to pass customs clearance in the United States with no restrictions. Happy Birthday older cars! Your present is no inspections whatsoever!

There are only two hurdles to the 25 year rule. The state where your import car is going may require modifications for safety items to receive a tag and registration. And in the state of California, older cars mandate stricter emission requirements for all cars manufactured after 1975.”USA Customs Clearance
