Tommy, get in touch with Jens here:

He's a member in Germany, and he's got a few 1:1 American muscle cars, maybe he can help with a European connection or two?

Thanks Harry.

 

This is the answer so far.

 

 

This vehicle is a unknown year Plymouth Barracuda
2-door Hardtop,
unknown engine
and was the 325,572nd car scheduled for production at the

Thanks. The problem here is cost of shipping. Also the price on cars are unrealistic high.

It's not just parts. Have you factored in shipping charges, import duties and taxes?

 

EDIT: These subjects were addressed while I was typing.

since your looking at mustangs I personally would look also for mavericks and mercury comets of the same era grabber mavricks are still lower in cost and can offer great performance.

Tommy, depending on your preferences the big secret is that here in the USA there is very little appreciation for 4 door cars.  I don't see that bias in Europe, so you can buy and import US 4 door sedans and hard tops for a small fraction of what convertibles and 2 door cars cost. Cars that will be collectible and appreciated in Europe!

 

 I see that in the photos of recent Euro imports from the USA that some of my colleagues have posted on boards.

Thanks for the input and sugestions. The Cuda was a basket case,pretty much just a empty shell and he was asking 17000$ lol.

This is a beautiful car imo :wub:

4doors are worth half of a 2 door or convertible over here as well. There are some very pristine examples but sadly to many

end up as "raggar" or "pilsnerbil" as we call it in Norway/Sweden. As in try make them look horrible thinking its cool.

 

Edit: I`m buying for me,and as superficial as it might be,2door hardtop is the most elegant imo. Well if we arent

talking 57-58 Brougham`s,but they are a little out of my budget.
