un-importable Japanese 97 Areles Blue ..

Something to look at ...

Build date looks like December which makes it un-importable.

For that price aren't you better off buying NAS truck?

It's something to look at ... Not to buy. Do we have any board members close?

Its a 40k mile 97 (technically 98 model year based on what Jason is saying) Pedro. Somewhat valuable were it here.

The date on the truck says 12/97. The build date could be earlier. Maybe it could be imported. But given I already own the most desirable 95 white SW it's not something for me.

Isnt' this thing really one of the '97 NAS SWs? They didn't "produce" these V8 SW's in auto for anywhere else in the world (besides US/Japan) after this period did they? Shouldn't this be able to come in?

sticker would have correct info. Thats a 98 model. Despite having epa and dot stickers this one isn't eligible. Dot's website lists the VIN range that is eligible- ends in August 97.
