Importing a 61 Ford F100 Unibody

Earlier this year i was Stateside n managed a secure a deal on a 61 Ford Unibody Pickup while I was in Arizona,..

Ive been accumulation some parts in the US to bring in with it .The Asbestos scare has quietened a few importers.

However I was about to Import it with Julian at Classic Custom Imports in Melbourne ,...... however at the last minute, disappointingly,... hes informed me that he has decided not to import anyone elses cars but his own from now on.

Ive already removed the brake shoes n exhaust manifold gaskets,

Can anyone recommend an importer, ????,,,.

You should do it yourself, although it will be a costly exercise, I Can't see to many importers staying in business in the future, with Asbestos rules being enforced, it's not going to be viable for them I think.

Could try Victorian import guys, If they are interested.

Google.

Cheetah Imports, American Used, Brock Auto, Nashville Motors, Eastcoast Mustang/Camaro, Just Mustangs, Mustangs of Melbourne, etc.

Yikes, I wonder how you go importing any vehicle with the risk of additional costs (potentially thousands of dollars ) on top of the rest of the costs related to importing your dream car.
