Hi I live in the UK and found two nice Italian reg. classic cars (1968) near Pisa which I would like to drive back to the UK. One is a private sale. The other an Italian garage. Questions Answers: What is the process of buying/exporting an Italian classic car? Cost? Where in Italy or, the UK, can I get temporary (1 week) EU insurance on an Italian reg. classic car? If I can get temporary Italian insurance: Can I simply get the original Carta di Circulazione + Bill of Sale and drive it back on the seller's Italian reg plates? ( I will send back the original plates to the seller) Or, must I get an Export licence + temp. plates? If so, how long does this Export process take and where do I go? If the seller is an Italian garage: Is it possible, they can they give me temporary EU insurance? Any advice would be most welcomed & appreciated. Many thanks
Planning to buy/drive an Italian classic car back to the UK but as I am not an Italian resident, I am unable to get temporary EU insurance, either in Italy or the UK! So I have 2 options: Forget it Find a Milan car transport company Would anyone have any ideas? Ideally, I'd like to drive the car back but the insurance is the proble, UK insurance companies or the AA do not insure foreign reg cars. Hopefully, someone has a suggestion. Thanks in advance. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Planning to buy an italian classic car to drive around the EU for 6 months and then export back to the UK. What is the procedure for exporting the car?

We have a turbo hose with a crack and have been unable to find a replacement part either in France or the UK. The car was bought in Italy in the year 2000 and this particular model was never sold in France or the UK to my knowledge, so we don't hold much hope of finding a replacement here. Does anyone know of an Italian source for parts that are no longer stocked or manufactured??? I've tried ebay.it and an Italian car parts website, but since we don't live in Italy we're a little short on ideas!
Can anyone help. I would like the Italian phone number for either of the above. The freephone number on their website takes you to the country you are calling from and I need to talk to someone in Italy as I have to get a certificate of conformance and one cannot be supplied from the UK people.
Hi I plan to buy an Italian registered classic car (1968) in Rome and drive + import it into the UK. As I'm a tourist, I don't have a valid address. I have a current, clean UK licence. QUESTIONS ANSWERS What is the registration procedure + cost? Where can I get temporary insurance + an English speaking insurance company? ( contact name + email address/phone no) Do I have to road tax + have the car safety inspected if it's for export? Is a car from 1968 exempt from road tax? If the car has a current road tax, do I have to tax it again? If so, what is the minimum period? (3/6 months) Rough cost of road tax for a 1300 cc classic car? Any advice would be most welcomed & appreciated! email@example.com
