Help!! Importing Shelby GT... inadmissable???

Recommended Posts

I am looking to import an 07 Shelby Gt. Has anyone done this since it was put on inadmissable list (indirectly) on Transport Canada's website. Is this car just considered a mustang when you import? Any help greatly appreciated. Deal has been made on car, but I did not look into this before i did that. Me dumb :doh:

Not sure about the details of importing to Canada, but if they only need to verify the VIN number, you should be fine. The VIN number comes through as a Mustang GT (not a Shelby since it was modified after production).

 

Hopefully a Canadian Team Shelby member can weigh in with more details to help you out.

 

Good luck!

Canada does not allow most Shelby's for some stupid reason.

 

Check out this thread. There are a lot of details on importing Shelby's to Canada towards the end of the thread. http://www.teamshelby.com/forums/index.php...=33455&st=0

 

I would also PM QuickSilverShelby. He has spent a LOT of time on this issue. I believe he still has not been able to get his GT-H into Canada and it is currently in storage in Las Vegas.

Brought my 07 SGT into Canada when I moved up from Portland. VIN comes up as Mustang GT - so you'll be good.

 

HOWEVER, if you NOW go look at RIV Canada, they've now included the car into the "Admissible" list! along with other models.

I just imported a Shelby GT500 in November 2010. I am from Winnipeg, Its my understanding If its been modified after release from the Ford Dealer you are SOL.

I imported a new 2011 GT500 into Canada (Ontario) with no problems at all (no mods). The GT500 is listed as admissible on the TC/RIV list. I needed to get the daytime light software mod which I knew about before hand. Had the local Ford dealer take care of the DRL software mod before the RIV part 2 inspection.

Says here the Shelby GT and GT-H are welcome here Just have to do your DTR lights. Ford dealer will do that with proof of importation form signed by Canadian tire.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me how the daytime running light were achieved on your 08 SGT? I just imported one, it does not have fog lights, and my Ford dealer is scratching his head as he usually uses the fog lights to make them into daytime running lights.

 

Thanks

if they are not HDI lights ford will provide a code to turn the standard lights on. you will need to provide the importation proof. Your dealer need to contact ford tech support. My 07 gt500 lights were turned on with a code from ford.
