Quite a projekt!

I Searched some sites about importing cars from the US and found a specialised shipping firm.

They might know how to do it!

Hi!

sounds like a fun idea :-)

Below are a few more links.

These are "freight forwarders". It's more or less an all inclusive service (freight, paper work and so on):

http://www.calship.com/

translate.google.com/translate…

As an alternative, if you want to set the whole thing up yourself:

Hey Thank You Jorgen and AndersE! By the way, I am a Native American Flute player/ performer and will be playing at a spiritual seminar hosted by Eckankar in Goteborg, Sweden on the weekend of June 15,16,17. Anyone interested in this event can contact me at gregghammond333@gmail.com

Thanks again.... I will let everyone know how and if this adventure manifests.... I am thinking about doing this in a 1959 Chevy Pickup just for fun... posibly driving across USA from California to the East coast and shipping from there just to make it really fun... we will see how much shipping is!?

Gregg, you may want to remove your post containing your email address to reduce the chance of ever more spam. Best to invite PMs through TA than giving an open mail address.

Sounds a great idea but not cheap! Let us know approx costs whether you do it or not

Sounds fun but remember petrol here is much more expensive.

1 litre 95 okt unleaded is soon up at 15SEK 2,10 bucks!

Gregg, hope it works out for you! Sounds like an adventure to remember for a long time. And what a nice car to bring! I just love these old Chevy trucks.

If you make it to my neck of the woods (Mjölby in the County of Östergötland) drop me a message via TripAdvisor.

There are several classic car gatherings every week around here during the summer and I'm convinced that you and your truck would fit right in :-)

Best regards

Jörgen
