I'm curious as to why Australia has such an Old Vehicle Import Policy! It seems counter productive as most Vehicles of that Vintage must be bears when trying to update or source parts!
good question mate. Whether they're trying to protect local manufacturers or have some other strange reason, I'm not sure. Under this "Pre-1989 Scheme" we're considered an enthusiast and can bring them in as a personal import. I think there are similar regulations on importing cars.
Some say we're extremely over regulated here, others say it's all about road safety but the process of having this type of vehicle inspected and approved for use on our roads, is pretty crude, considering its weight and size. Because it weighs over 4.5 metric tonne, it must be coverted to Right Hand Drive. People bringing in cars from the US, which are 25 years old or older, can leave them Left Hand Drive.
