How hard is it to get this Cougar into the States ? Malcolm sir, could you drive it across the border and then say fly back. I have also heard that Canadian cars don't need or have Titles. How do you then title it in the US ? I would love to own this GTE but would hate to spend a ton on Taxes and Fees.
Does anybody know the Facts, the Facts not ideas or guessing. Thanks

With the GT E originally being manufactured in the USA and more than 25 yrs old makes the process less complicated. Might not be the cheapest, but the easiest less stressful way is to hire a broker and let them take care of all the paperwork. Then if you do have a problem at the border you have a resource on your side to help. I sold a Cougar that went to Germany and used a broker. Easiest sale transaction I've ever done.

If you are not present at the USA/Canada border driving the vehicle (as the new owner of the car), then you will need to go through a broker.
BC registered vehicles (as this car is) have a registration paper (title) that goes with the vehicle that you can use to title in another jurisdiction.
Where are you located, as I may be able to help with a broker and enclosed transport.

I have a friend that recently, summer of 2017 purchased a GT-E from Canada and had it shipped into the USA. If you can send me an email Chair@CougarClub.org I can put you in contact with him. It seemed to be pretty easily accomplished.

Importing a vehicle isn’t as easy as driving it across due to change of title important inspections etc.

I know that the transport company my friend used managed a lot of the process and he would be the best person for you to speak with.

This car seems to be priced a bit low for what the value is, probably due to the exchange rate and if it was higher a local sale in Canada would not be attractive to people not with the exchange rate favorability.

Thanks again for all of your replies. I thought that I would give it one last bump here before it goes to a well-known collector car dealer/consigner here in Vancouver. Just too many tire kickers and people full of hot air for me to deal with personally. I really think that it is a great car and that the price is reasonable. Running, driving, numbers matching GT-E's don't come for sale too often, as you all know. That's why I bought it in the first place. If anyone here is truly interested in it, let me know fairly soon. Thank you, Malcolm.

It's as simple as get to the border with your truck and trailer, answer all the questions about where you are going, what you will be doing and how many days you plan to spend in Canada.

Then when back to the border, provide the title, show the border patrol inspector where the VIN numbers are located, go inside the office, tell them how much you paid, they then stamp/fill out some paperwork and you are back on the road. Took me less than a half hour once and I don't recall any fees and if there were, had to be minor.

Yup, that's about how it goes if the car is crossing with the owner, but if the owner is not going to be present when the car is being imported to the US, then it needs to go through a broker.

That's the way I would rather do a deal to get a car into the US, especially one for big money. Driven over by the owner. Then switch it over to your trailer and head home. No Broker.
So I'm also guessing Malcolm , that the Collector you are referring to : will get the GTE for less $$ then any one on here can. Or it wouldn't be on here for sale. You would have sold it to them already. What is that price.

In the first posting he says, "Price is $85K USD, firm".

I’m curious how paint color and trim option scheme create coefficient value.


I think for the asking price offered, color and location is the only reason , this gem hasn’t found a new home 🏠
