    To the best of my knowledge ex USA forces vehicles ,used on bases here , are not supposed to be sold on in this country but be broken. As they come into this country duty free you will be getting into a ( costly) minefield to get it registered. Just been involved with helping out on a similar case .

    i always thought once the vehicle had been here for x amount of time they were OK to buy??? speak to someone like ernie who works on a base and comes and goes between here and the states.

    I am almost certain that Kev is correct, they have to be cut up.

    Sorry but you are all incorrect , Ex US Forces vehicles can be bought and used, there is a yard near Huntingdon that auctions them from time to time, there is of course some paperwork but no big deal.
    Most Diesel Blazers are ex forces, also many pick ups and ambulances, I even saw a GMC Top Kick at Billing ! ( thats a real truck !)

    Almost there, Not open auction any more. You tender for the annual contract to buy one and all vehicles being desposed of. Not 100% sure if this is nation wide or regional but certainly all vehicles I know of go to Molesworth.
    Private vehicles can be bought from service men/women but they have to sort the duty payable first before they can part with the vehicle to a 'civvy'


    Bumps....

    I have bought a Chevy Dually Pick up from the USAF Auctions at RAF Molesworth.
    This was some years ago but for what it is worth all vehicles sold to the general public have VAT charged at purchase, so that's one tax taken care of.
    They also issue the paperwork to register the vehicle. When I registered mine it was just like importing one, MOT and insurance on the chassis number and fill in the form. If you have to pay any other tax the value of the vehicle should be so low to make it no great problem.
    If the vehicle is already in private hands it should be straightforward.

    If some's good, more's better and too much is just enough
