Buying a classic car in the United States, follow the guide

The U.S. market represents a huge reservoir of classic vehicles. There are beautiful American women, but also Italians, English, Germans… and all this at unbeatable prices. But you still need to know how to go about importing the car of your dreams to Europe. That’s good, we’ve compiled everything you need to know if you want to buy a classic car in the United States. Follow the guide!

If you’re looking to treat yourself to a classic vehicle, the U.S. market is like an Eldorado. In terms of options, engines, colours, prices… This gigantic automotive inventory simply has no equal. Of course, there are a multitude of American models, but not only… Indeed, in the 1960s, European cars were exported en masse to the United States, which explains the rich supply of classic vehicles from German, Italian or English brands on the American market. As you can see, whatever the model you are looking for and your budget, you have every chance of finding the rare pearl.

Attractive prices for all budgets

One of the main advantages of buying a classic car in the United States is that they are usually well maintained. And even if this is not the case, all vehicles are in principle subject to real monitoring, with a complete history compiling the main stages of the vehicle’s life.

In addition to its extensive offer, the American market is known for its very attractive rates. Indeed, if the wealthiest are willing to pay several tens of thousands of dollars to afford a completely restored vehicle, the most modest budgets will have no trouble finding accessible models to restore. Add to this reduced taxes for the import of classic cars (5.5% of the purchase price of the vehicle instead of 20%), and you will understand why many of the classic models found in France come from the United States.

If you are not yet convinced by buying a classic car in the United States, you should know that it is an excellent financial investment. With prices skyrocketing in Europe, and prices still very attractive across the Atlantic, this is a great opportunity to make a solid investment. And if you ever change your mind, and you want to part with it, you will have no trouble reselling it. With a bit of luck, you may even be able to make a capital gain in the operation.
