Importing Classic American Cars from USA to Australia

Vehicles manufactured prior to 1989 which do not have any major modifications can be imported under the pre-1989 scheme. Any modifications should be reported to the department of infrastructure to determine if approval will be granted as  the they will check the internet for advertisements on the vehicle and decline the permit and demand the modifications removed. If your American car arrives without a import permit it cannot pass through the customs border and will be ordered for re-export or destruction. So shipping you car prior to gaining the import approval is not recommended.

New cars and any vehicle manufactured post 1989 – Any vehicle manufactured after 1989 which is not eligible for one of the other import permits available is required to get  complied to Australian standard by a RAWS approved workshop.
