    Yesterday a truck delivered these cars, straight from North America, to a dealer's showroom:


    A 1968 GS 350 with yellow bumpers, maybe bought from a board member?


    Listed as "Coming Soon" on the website of the classic car dealer.

    In order for a purchaser to licence one of these imported car, what paperwork has to be completed? Sales tax? Road tax? safety check? Insurance (cost)?......

    Import tax (over the purchase price + shipping costs) has to be paid when the car is picked up from the customs agent.
    After that the car needs a tech + identity inspection by Dutch RDW (similar to DMV) and the VIN number needs to be stamped into a chassis rail. (or a major part of the body when it's an unibody car)
    You also have to pay for those services.

    Next is paying for the new Dutch car registration (looks like a credit card nowadays) and two licence plates, they will stay with the car as long as it registered in The Netherlands.

    Looks good, except the painted bumpers! And they know there prices.

    This is not the cheapest dealer, but from what I hear their cars and service are excellent.
    If you know your way around it, importing your own car can be much cheaper.
