If you are actually planning on using the car it will require a full "C" service including replacing all the fluids, belts, filters, tires, and battery. Then you have to drive it and see what other problems there are to fix. If you have to send it to a shop figure $2-3K to "awaken" it. If you can do most of it yourself (except for the belts) maybe $1K If the clutch and brake system are rotten because of old fluid it can get a lot more expensive. Similar situation for the gas tanks. These cars are not like fine wine. Aging them does not make them more valuable without constant maintainence. As for bringing it into the USA, I think that depends on which State. Some are more liberal about it than others. Should inquire before buying though. And there *could* be duty or taxes to pay besides the shipping. If everything is in Metric that could be a problem.
