I recently imported from Italy Classic RR with the original 4 cyl 2.5 turbo diesel VM engine with 5 gears manual transmission , to find out that California DMV will not let me register it !? yes I thought too that a 25 years old diesel could be imported in California without problem ... obviously not at least for the guy at DMV handling my case.
I have the US custom import paper in my name , the official De-registration document from the Italian registry .
If you are out of California you should be able to register it (please check with your DMV) , or if you just want to use the car for off roading , rock crawler or on a ranch . It is in good original shape ,not perfect but ok considering the age , the heads have been redone 8,000 miles ago , the car has approx. 109K miles (175K KM) ,
the clutch slip a bit on high gear , I have the new spare parts to replace it along with the main engine seal and the throw out bearing , here are a few cons:
there is a 4" tear in the driver seat
the battery icon light on the dashboard is blinking but the alternator is putting out 14.3 V. and the batteries (2) are always full
The cabin lights are always on so I removed the bulbs ( there may be a on/off switch but I cannot find it)
The auto windows all work depending on how good you are in massaging the switches
There is air conditioning gear under the hood but it does not seem to work ? I cannot see any on /off comands in the cabin.
the headliner is starting to fail
there is a sweat of diesel from the tank sender unit (gasket?)
as you can see from the picture the hood insulation is damaged in the center
there are 2 rubber cushions on the rear axle stabilizer rods that needs replacement
there is one rust spot in the rear drivers side door just above the wheel well , there is some (very little ) superficial rust on the metal plate /guard under the fuel tanks a bit here and there
with that said , this is a 28years old car in original condition , it is a very good candidate for and easy restoration or just use it like that with the minor imperfections
