So what does it take to import one to Canada? Listening to all the drooling it might make a good little sideline for an old retired guy.

First you gotta find a Canuck with money. No maple trees here to milk syrup.


Old vehicles come across fairly easy, just 5% tax and then they need an inspection for registration. Anything modified is an issue, like lifts.

So that is the problem--all drool and no cash. Oh well.

Too bad it doesn't work as easily coming this way on some of the 15 year old or older cars that are coming in to Canada from Japan.

But then again I don't need any more things with wheels until I sell a few.

For some reason I want to say they still have it... So everytime I think of diesel burban, that story comes into my mind...

They can definitely go the distance if cared for. My great grandpa ran nothing but 6.2 diesels for his business back in the day. The last one he bought new in 1988 made it to over 600K before he retired it in 2001 because it was soo rusty and he was getting old anyway. My uncle took over and ran 6.2s and 6.5s that regularly cleared 300K without major failure.

Biggest problem with any vehicle 9 times out of 10 is people expecting too much from a vehicle.

People made fun of old ford transit panel vans. But our ford was under powered, oversized and ran out of power at 50mph (on pump #2) But it kept going because we understood it's limitations. Now my uncle ran similar vehicles and he went through 8 in 3 years.

People call the 6.5 and 6.5, but if you look after them, they will run.

Managing expectations is really as important as managing momentum with these. After diving my high horsepower and much lighter cars for a while the Van seems mired in molasses until I start adapting me to it. Then it is a quite pleasant drive.
But when I switch back 300 hp seems a lot more like 500. Even my V8 Exploder is a veritable rocket ship.

And to stay on topic 1982 GMC 2500 PICKUP 6.2L DIESEL

If it was 4wd I would be thinking about contacting now.
