I've no experence in importing vehicles over there, but you may find
inormations such as local laws about US cars imported there.

I've recently (last september) bought a '92 Eddie Bauer in Switzerland
(directly imported from US market by Ford of Switzerland) and imported it
in France. Just a border to cross... But my Explo has US glasses, mirrors,
lights, seatbelts, horn, and of course one only bulb for both blinkers and
stop lights...

In France I had to modify my 'true-american Explo' to have orange blinkers
at the rear, then add a reverse light and a red rear fog light to comply
with local rules. Also, I had to let i be agreed especially, as no '91 and
'92 Explo had ever been asked for homologation by Ford-France...
More, it's here difficult o find bulbs to replace lights, and if somebody
crashes his car in yours, you are not able to find spareparts in France...
But Ford Germany has a warm welcome for 'afficionados' like me, and they
ordered in the US all I needed (light, bumper, fender...) I had to wait for
2 months for all the spareparts to be in France. Add to that taxes when you
import from switzerland to france, (about $500), tax for secial agreement
($80), tax for license plate ($400) and wait for 4 months..

Then now I'm happy, proud owner of a self-imported Explo
