Import from Jamaica

I dont know. I went there and had a hard time bringing a bottle opener back.

At least the price is reasonable. Thats a bargain for all the parts.

Can not be imported. 25yr min age requirement for vehicle imports. Of course it is easy to ship it to Miami, where customs will impound the truck, fine you, and make you pay to destroy it or ship it out.

Ebay really should set up buyer instructions or a link to US customs regs on this. I and many others have posted on this topic in the past.

Of course it can't be imported - as a complete vehicle. But you can fly down, put what you want in a container, and crush the rest. The best bet would be to disassemble the body, cut the frame in half, sell or crush the motor, axles, and any other parts you dont want, then use the parts to convert a NAS 90 into a v8 130. Extra parts left over from the conversion (i.e complete left hand drive bulkhead and dash, seats etc) could be sold for decent money. Hardly a no-brainer, but not terribly difficult for the adventurous.

Of course its from Jamaica. You'd have to be high to bid on that.

it would probably be a better idea just to move to jamaica, most likely cheaper then bringing that thing here...
