Import Defender 110 Tdi into Canada

Hello fellow Canucks. Does anyone know how to go about importing a new 110 Tdi left-drive into Canada? Land Rover UK & Canada aren't interested in helping too much. Cheers.

David.

Don't even waste your time......if its not at least 15 years old to the month....it will be a loosing battle.

my advice is to get a good 15 year old Land Rover and get the 300tdi put it it over in the UK before it comes to Canada......

i have been down this road and if i were to do this again, thats what i would do

Importing.....

Hi David,
I agree with Gord, not much chance of getting it into Canada unless its 15 yrs or older.
There is a couple of outfits that are importing "knocked down kits" which are basically new defenders that come over it a kit form, then get rebuilt in Canada. This seems to be a little loop hole (for now).

Here is a link about importing for your reading,

Good luck,
Andy

That's odd. Why Canada would want old car to be ok to import?

I have friends that import cars to Poland and Poland wants all new or no more then 5 years old . If they are older then 5 years , the Tax is unbelivable .

People did that two with cars from germany . They tuke them apart , got some paper that the car was for parts , and they got it in as parts car , later assembled it , and registered it . But that loop hole is gone now in my country .




Now Anyone knows if it would be posible to import that car from USA to Canada ?

And I would like to know for my self , on How hard would be to import a car to USA thrue Canada ( a japaniese car ) .

Where in Canada are you? or are you in the UK? :0) I don't think Kits are admissable in Canada?? Could be wrong though.

Looking for 200tdi LHD D110 station wagon

Hey. I thought I'd throw in here, just to get the word out. I'm looking for a LHD Canada-legal (>15 years old) D110 station wagon with a 200tdi.

If anyone has something like that for sale, or good contacts to help me source one overseas, I'd love to hear from you. I'm in Waterloo, Ontario.

Thanks a lot,
- Andrew Clarke.

If you are in Ontario, forget about the knock down kit... you will not get insurance. They changed to insurance laws and it is considered a Kit car... As well I would not put the 300tdi in it till it gets to Canada. That engine was not registered to that year of truck and if they run the engine number they will send it back or bury the truck ( a mate of mine works at the docks in Halifax and watched one get crushed and buried, almost cried, due to a 300tdi in an old truck.)

Hi Andrew Barr. I tried emailing your hotmail account yesterday but it bounced. You wouldn't happen to have gone to high school in Kenya and lived Malawi, would you? I knew another Andrew Barr who's the same age. I just moved from southern California back to Ontario (Waterloo) although I'm moving near London (Embro) in a couple months so it would be good to know other local Land Rover people regardless of whether I used to know you or not!

What's this about crushing vehicles with a 300tdi? I thought you could import an old vehicle even if it had a new engine. Do you know what happens if I import, say, a 1988 with a 200tdi in it? Or are they only worried if it's an engine that wasn't in the vehicle at all > 15 years ago, like the 300tdi or td5?

Thanks,
- Andrew.

Andrew:
Send the email to theYahoo account, the Hotmail account never seems to work. Unfortunately I have never been to Kenya,but it is on the travel list... definately always good to meet another rover owner... what truck you got?

As for the truck, since the numbers did not match, I believe the frame number was okay, but the bulkhead and engineand tranny numbers were not 15 years old, so they demolished it.. such a crying shame...

Hello David...
I am a Canadian (Vancouverite) now living in Kobe, Japan.
I have a used vehicle source & export company here so perhaps I can help.

The Land Rover Defender can be imported into Canada if it is >15 years old.
Lefthand or Righthand drive is ok (except perhaps Quebec).

The vehicle must be in proper running order with the correct D.O.T. tyres and the correct watt bulbs.

Probably, as "Exmodland" suggests, it is likely you will require few modifications to clear customs and get it on the road. Also, importing European vehicles from Japan where the vehicles must undergo similar inspections every 2 years (SHAKEN) in their life over here, that has been rather easy too.

Good luck...feel free to contact me if you would like to import from Japan.

Drive safe.
