    Canada Closed to Any Modified Imports

    Please note Newest Import Rule):
    Vehicles that have been modified from their original state, other than regular maintenance, may not be eligible for importation into Canada. For example, a van transformed into a motorhome (often known as Class B motorhome), a van equipped with raised roof and/or modified interior, a pick-up or a passenger car equipped with lift kit, a motorcycle converted to a motor tricycle (trike), etc.

    Looking on the bright side of things ... Every kit car, hot rod and custom vehicle already registered in Canada just went way way up in value.

    I hope jim will continue to build his amazing replicas. Parts could be hard to import now.

    Just to be clear they don't look at it at the border, it gets inspected once you start the registration process. In NS Canadian Tire is the official inspection station. I brought over an '07 Grand Cherokee in '07. The only thing I had to do for inspection was to get Chrysler to turn on the daytime running lights.
