Okay, so on my recent trip to Australia, the subject came up about importing a Ute to the US. The company I will be working for is based in Melbourne and is establishing an office in the US. They are an automotive aftermarket company and would like to use the Ute as a showpiece (it would obviously attract a lot of attention here). The several inquiries I've made so far with US registered importers seems to indicate it may be more trouble than it's worth.
One guy even went so far as to say right hand drive cars are no longer eligible for US import. Is this true? I have a hard time believing that. This may not even be the right forum for this, but can anybody point me in the right direction? I would think that getting a Ute certified should be no big deal, considering the car was so close to being sent here anyway as a Pontiac.
We would be looking at importing a new VE Ute. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
