Default Anyone have experience selling CDN vehicle to a U.S resident?

Hi, I'm looking through Craigslist and wanted to possibly purchase a Canadian produced 1996 Ranger to bring into the U.S. Does anyone have an understanding on what is needed to do this?

I am told that the vehicles are pretty much identical, e.g, that the vehicle has to indicate that the truck meets U.S. emission requirements. Would be great to hear from anyone who has experience with this process. Thank you.

Its been awhile and the State of importation was Michigan so there were limited inspections and no AET or Smog testing anymore.

Friend/Client of mine imported in a Mitsubishi Eclipse 2nd gen GST. Had to change Speedo from KM to MPH, Change the bumper support beams to US Standards of 5 MPH, Catalytic convertor(s), and a couple other small things including a Import cert tag in the door now identifying the correct mileage.

You could probably leave the Daytime running lights and tie up the plug for the block heater..

despite my real opinions, Id call up your local DMV, They tell you all the ways that they're going to make money off of you at the threat of violence or coercion... AND YOU WILL PAY.. lol
