Swiss '67 Fiat Dino 2.0 Coupe

http://www.finecars.cc/en/detail/car...cache=1&ret=63

Okay - so it's not the best colour, and some prefer the 2.4 version, but this is about half of what decent Dino Coupe's typically fetch in the EU. So how much hassle and VRT is involved in bringing in a classic from Switzerland? There's another red '67 in Germany for three grand more.

I guess it would be similar to importing a car from the U.S, The Isle of Man, Jersey etc (i.e. non-EU countries)....VRT + VAT to be paid. And 'Z' export plates to be organised (Standard Swiss licence plates are not meant to be exported with a vehicle).

Drove one of these for years (the 2.0 as opposed to the 2.4), I even took it to Le Mans 24hr. Had an absolute ball. Like you say, the colour wouldn't be my bag at all. Mine was Giallo Fly :-)
I prefer the dashboard in the 2.0 too.

For 12k I'd live with that colour combo!
Yeah, taxes will add a few grand but still seems a price decent nonetheless.

And a heck of road trip for a brave soul.

For the Iso, or foreign classics in General ?

That Iso was in the US in http://classiccars.com/listings/find?price-max=5000 (I put Max $5000 in search )

There's plenty of classic car sites worldwide , just a matter of knowing the lingo / using Google translate

Some like South Africa / Australia have a lot of rust free RHD stuff, while the US/EU have droolable stuff

Maybe I'll list them when I get time ?
