    Needs to be shipped to a port in the States, stuck on a boat, and all the taxes and whatnot paid at this end when it arrives.

    If you go down the resto route, aim for an Arizona car with a reasonably straight body. Mechanical stuff for Ford V8s isn't cripplingly expensive, bodywork and trim bits can be.
