What about Harleys or vintage bikes?

If you can find something UK buyers want but is out of favor here, then you hit a homer.

Some may surprise you. I doubled my money shipping a Porsche 911 to Europe.

J.P.

BTW, we'll miss you kicking around Denver.
John, I hear you. I've got about a year to find something, we're aiming for May 2013. Lots to do before then. And thanks I'll miss Denver and the great people probably more than I know now, but this is an opportunity that I can't pass up, so I'm pretty excited (and a little sad).

Thanks for all the great suggestions, I plan to start looking soon. I'm waiting for a quote on the 40' container I'll need to fit a vehicle.
I'm planning to consult a UK tax attorney to find out exactly what I'm in for, the immigration attorney we spoke with earlier this week had no idea, but gave us a referral.

Regards,
Art

I know its a strange concept, when all we talk about here is bring cars INTO the states.

Personally, I'd test the waters for any early Mopar product. Early Harleys/Indians also come to mind. THey are rare here, so they would be like unobtainuim in the UK. Of course there has to be an audience and the exchange rate has to make sense.

i know what he's talking about! why wouldn't we want all those parts on my list!!

hard to get tyres will always sell. Contact Devon 4x4 and see if they have a requirement. 25" KM2s are hard t get hold of here. so are boggers and simex. Strong axles are derigour on all challenge trucks here due to 37-40" tyres. Harleys will be good news, and i'll have a confederate hellcat

I like the Harley ideas. Easy to store, especially if I have to wait 12 months before selling.

you only have to wait 12 months if its brought in as personal affects. if you pay the duty it can be sold immediatly, vehicles over 50yrs olf are exempt duty.

Forget Harleys, when the VIN no is punched in they show up as grey imports and that takes a good chunk off the price. Take a look on ebay uk there are plenty on there with good warranty programs you can not offer with a grey import.

There are a few older Harleys shipped over but they have to be very cheap. D&K bring a few rough non runners over. I send a lot of bikes to the UK and have never found it viable to send newer Harleys over.

Okay, Harley's not so good. I guess I'll start looking for a Willy's Jeep. At least I'm in the right part of the country for them.

or a ford gpw, early script fords and 1941 slat grill MB fetch the best money. un restored thry are worth from 2500 to 6000. regular MB's and GPW's sell for 2000-4000 unrestored and from 8000 restored. must be numbers matching with original data plates for best prices.

"How about women with straight teeth?" good un reese... but then she would have to carry a whistle to hail a cab.!

I'd love to see some mopar - a roadrunner with a hemi... but the fuel price means I cant afford to run one and eat..
X2 with Julian Early jeeps are worth very good money, seen a few basket cases get sold for 4k + then totally rebuilt with a new tub using old scripted bolts to try to keep it "authentic" if you could find a cache of "F" marked bolts or other parts you would make a killing.!

In france and germany WW2 vintage stuff is very pricey, with unrestored jeeps and genuine crate parts coming from Poland.

as for harley's easy .. early parts, engines,tranny's,switch gear, gauges etc all cost major money in the UK.

regards
Gren
