Hi plumcrazee
That truck sold locally(in LA) to a dealer, but have others. will post soon

It normally takes 6-8 weeks to get a car from order. The deal is, when you order a car you pay 50% of the price into an escrow account held by a solicitor in the uk and the balance is payable on delivery. If you feel the car was incorrectly described then you can always walk away with a full refund,( most cars have a reserve buyer in the wings lol)
BTW if a truck has been clipped I will try to find an original clip to include with the truck. Will stop the mot man reporting you if it has the original front suspension on. You can always put the other clip back on when you've registered it.
Regards

This is a new idea for us. We have been importing cars from the US since 1993 but only for retail by ourselves.
The market for newish stuff has dried up since the pound's value dropped so we have gone back to classics which we sell mostly in the Scandinavian market.
Because we have buying adverts running in the local media we get offered lots of cars, far too many for us to buy and store. Some go to local dealers but a lot of decent cars are virtually unsellable in the present US economy,
I'm not talking about cond 1 classics and muscle cars, they are on the up, pricewise, being snapped up as investments by wealthy guys. But that leaves a lot of cond 2/3 cars in the doldrums. But I feel that these cars offer an opportunity for regular guys over here in the UK to get a nice car at a bargain price.
To this end we are developing a web site which will list a good selection of available cars which will be updated weekly.Not all of these cars are owned by ourselves, we will be acting as selling agents for the owners in some cases.
The low price of classics in the states won't last forever. When the economy picks up then so will the prices. We are not looking to catch anyone out, we could do the same as most other importers do, keep a fancy showroom in the UK, with all the associated expense, and then have to charge top prices to make the business viable. A virtual showroom is a lot cheaper to maintain. I hate big expenses, we store some cars in a field 50 miles from our office to keep our overhead down. LOL.
In these days of instant visual communication it is possible to get a very good idea of a cars condition from thousands of miles away and you can even hear it running.
These cars are not 100 point concours cars but do represent fantastic value for the American car fan and a chance to get a bargain.

I'm in negotiation for this project. It's a 55 F100 stepside. Complete truck with outstanding sheet metal. Very original, not cut about at all. Comes with the original 239 Y Block plus a running 292 Y Block with matching trans.






Is this the sort of thing your looking for? Valuble when restored or rat it.
