Default B10 Biturbo 'great for parts'

This isn't typical of what I'll be bringing to your attention from Japan, where the cars are often in beautiful condition:

Fuel pump is clogged, clutch cylinder is leaking, clutch needs replacing, gas tank rusted, multiple owners, headlamps missing, paint is a mess. However the interior looks good, and the asking price is around $3700.

Wow what a incredible find! If this were in Canada I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
I think it's much more than a parts car, this would be a excellent platform for starting off a project. Of course there's still unknowns about the cars history and mechanical condition.

Excuse my ignorance but what does it typically cost to bring a car across?

Ha! I think if that car were in Canada it would have been long sold!
Bringing that car to Canada would be about $850 to Vancouver. Getting it to Ontario from BC would be another $1500-$1750 or so. But that is for a car that is running. I expect it would be more for a non-runner like that one.

Its a good deal cheaper to bring in container loads of 4 cars. That's something I hope we can eventually organize through this site.
