Import Jeep from Canada

Ok... this is hopefully my final question regarding a Jeep I am looking to buy.

It is located in Canada.

I would like to hear from those who have purchased an older Jeep or any other vehicle from Canada? Did you have any problems getting it imported?

I know the one I am looking at fits under the classic/antique age, but being that it is not all original equipment I don't know what problems I may run into. Of course the engine is just as old as the jeep.

Do they actually look at the vehicle?

My goal was to go up, purchase it, and tow it back to the US, but I don't know what all is involved.

I have researched the EPA and other sites about this, but I was hoping to get some first hand experience.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Import Jeep from Canada

What year is the Jeep? If I were you, I would contact the Virginia DMV and ask them about it. I would think it al depends on what year the vehicle is and whether you mean inspect it for safety or for smog.

Re: Import Jeep from Canada

You might want to give the US Customs, a call and see what the taxes are going to be bringing it in. I remember that when I was in Seattle, I'd go up and buy stuff, they would always put inport taxes on it. I bought a Boom box stereo for about $50.00 up there and they taxed I think it was $15.00, This was around `93 so things might have changed since then. Good Luck,

Oh... I forgot to mention that this Jeep originated from the US. The last place it was titled in the US was Utah. It has not been tagged in Canada, but it was imported there through customs.

I just ask US customs the other day about bringing a vehicle from Mexico. The answer is, if it was originaly made in the US then it can come back free.
