I`m sorry to hear that you can`t take him with you...
I`m also in the same dilemma, i might be going back to Brazil end of the year or try my luck in the Uk(i have Portuguese citizenship), so if Brazil it is, no Fairlane. But is possible to take the car with me to Uk.

I wish you good luck with the sale.

P.S. you got a free bump for your ad :lol:

Why no Fairlane in Brazil? Parts should be no issue since a very similar Fairlane was assembled/sold in Argentina unless the RHD is a problem. I know for a fact that you can legally import/register your car here in the USA since it's over 25 year old-----------RHD and all because it would be exempt from Federal emissions and safety regulations.

Unfortunately no RHD cars allowed in Brazil... :x :x
Also the taxes/duties would kill: +-70% :evil: (those ba%$#rds)
The Fairlane that was made in Argentina was heavily based on the 68 American model, which had the doors and the "middle" of the car almost the same as the Galaxie that was made in Brazil between 67-83(believe it or not, they just had facelifts, the body was exactly the same as the 66 American Galaxie)

So, i won`t even bother with export there, also because i would like to buy a Maverick which is very popular in Brazil.

Ps: another bump 8) , hope it helps in selling this car ;)
