Lotus Esprit Giugiaro with Citroen gearbox and customs


Recommended Posts

Some information about duty and brokerage fees into Canada.
Auto parts for classic cars (at least 25 years old) should be duty-free for Canada, no matter the part’s country of origin. However, to make sure this happens, it is your responsibility to educate whomever you are buying from as most do not know about this exemption. Ask the shipper to indicate HS code 9966.00.00 on the customs declaration for each item as it applies. This Tariff Item of the Customs Tariff gives duty free status to “articles for use solely or principally with those vehicles manufactured more than 25 years prior to the date of importation”. Information about the interpretation of this tariff item can be found here.
Eligible parts are limited to those solely or principally for qualifying vehicles and would have to be in keeping with the original appearance and configuration of the vehicle. These may be either original articles or reproductions.
Articles that incorporate modern safety features or other technological developments can be considered under tariff item No. 9966.00.00, provided that they are solely or principally for use with qualifying vehicles and do not compromise the original configuration of the vehicle. EG Brake Kits, etc.
General purpose articles that can be used in vehicles covered and not covered under tariff item No. 9966.00.00 are not eligible for consideration.
So reproduction door panels would be eligible as they are specific to a vehicle over 25 years old, but tires that fit both your BMW 2002 and a 2011 Ford would not.
Not sure if the rules are the same for US and Australia.
Would be great for Lotus Esprit owners.
