You know that tub would make a great MOBILE HOT TUB for a CLOSE COUPLE.
Hi BenHi all,
I stumbled across this thread and have signed up as I have just started doing my own research on bringing an M35 in Australia because I can't find any for sale here.
A bloke I work with's father is a registered import agent and bring all sorts of cars, boats, trucks, etc, etc, in from Europe, UK and USA.
I just spoke to them about bring in an M35 and based on the cubic meterage, it will be ~$8,000 and will take 45-60 days to get here.
There will be about $2K in port and handling fees and GST on the purchase price. If customs determine the vehicle is not clean enough and needs a washdown, they do it and charge by the hour. They said this should be more than a couple of hundred dollars.
From there, registration should be pretty simple. It is just a 6x6 truck with a GVM under 10 tons. The brakes are hydraulic, not air operated. No requirement for RHD conversion due to the age.
In QLD you would need a HR license to drive it because MR only covers 2 axles.
I think you would be able to get a decent rig landed and on the road on a club permit for under $25K.
Did you ever import a Deuce into Australia? I am asking because I have one in Rockhampton that was imported from the US in 2013. Just chasing up on some history of this vehicle.
Hi mate, just wondering if you know of a deuce and a half that was imported into Australia in 2013?

Looks promising. Might be a road trip from Philidelphia to Portland Oregon, then to San Francisco to the Ro-Ro.
