Looking to import your next RHD vehicle? Well, maybe this will help!

1) Mitsuoka Galue

Mitsuoka Galue 234

Based on the same frame, motor, and transmission as a Nissan 350Z, or an Infiniti G35, the Mitsuoka Galue is all about class, and style… in it’s own way. Honestly, I love this car, and can’t wait to import one. Interior + exterior pieces are extremely hard to come by, but being based on Nissan archetecture, engineering parts are quite common. You can land one of these in North America for around $6-9k depending on condition, kilometers, and options.

2) Toyota Caldina GT-T

So you like the Subaru Legacy wagon, hey? You also like Celica/Supras? Well, here’s a number for you: The Toyota Caldina. This came in a few flavors, but the one I’ll be discussing is the most fun: The 1997-99 GT-T. Powered by 3S-GTE turbocharged 4 cylinder engine, the Caldina is a quick accelerator despite it’s wagon form. It also came in a few diesel varients, both automatic & manual options, and a naturally aspirated 4 cyl.

3) Suzuki Wagon-R

The Suzuki Wagon-R was almost in my collection this year. This is a prime example of a kei car, as it’s backed with either a 1.0L turbocharged engine, or a 1.3L (Based on the research I was doing). These are incredibly fuel-efficient, and have tons of space for gear, or whatever else you are transporting! A lot of the parts are compatible with a Suzuki Swift (Electronics would more than likely need to be JDM sourced) and they can end up in your garage for around $3,000.

4) Holden Commodore VR

Have you ever wanted to own a 5.0L, V8. RHD micro-truck? No? Well, I bet you’re considering it now. This little unit can tow 500-2100kg depending on spec, and came in such a variety of options, and specs that it’s pretty well your pick of the litter. You should be able to pick one of these up for around $5,000 + shipping, (For a V8 in a manual transmission) but good luck finding one.

5) AC Brooksland Ace

Of course, if I’ve covered a van, a truck, a wagon, and a sedan, I need a sports car in this list. This little knock at Ferrari is a phenomenal contender for controversy. You’ll be the most unique guy at the meet… until you pop the hood. This car is backed by a Ford manufactured V8 engine, making parts incredibly easy to come by, and giving it cheap power as it is made of aluminum, making it incredibly lightweight. This is also the most expensive option, though, as I was looking, and for one in great condition, to get it landed was around $25,000. A lot to pay for an obscure vehicle from 1995, but damn, is it nice!
