I imported mine when I moved back from the States.

Broncos do come up for sale every now and then on UK eBay, but you would be better off bringing your own with you as choice will be very limited to buy here.

In Ireland, and the UK I'm sure aswell, there is legislation that states if you bring a vehicle into the country when you are moving there permanently, and have owned the vehicle for a certain length of time before moving, then you won't get hit for customs/import duty.

I was only ever there as a kid, but even then I remember the roads we traveled being awfully narrow -- don't wreck too many Citroen& Renault mirrors while you're driving around town! ;)

Hello i'm from France!
I'm the owner of a 1978 Ford Bronco, 1981 Dodge Ramcharger SE Royal and a 1972 Chevrolet Corvette

Yikes -- I had to google this, but I thought we had it rough in California... little did I know. Here's the first sign of trouble (this from the NCTS web site):

"Ireland over the last number of years has witnessed a larger reliance on the use of mechanically propelled vehicles resulting in an increase in the number of vehicles on the road"

Mechanically propelled vehicles? As opposed to what? Leprechaun-drawn carts?

Then I looked at the FAQ, where they talk about one of their inspection points being rust. In Ireland. Rust. IN IRELAND.

Hey, good news is that since your Bronco is >10 years old you only get inspected... annually.

Like I said, yikes. :haha On the plus side, they were one of the first EU countries to get bailed out, so inspectors are probably more partial to bribes than those of solvent nations!

EDIT: is there _any_ way you can fudge/borrow/forge paperwork to reflect it as a pre-1980? What are the chances of, and penalties for, being caught? I mean, it's Ireland where they still call cars 'mechanically propelled vehicles'; they might not know a Bronco from the Blarney Stone. Because:
"Motor vehicles used only on islands not connected to the mainland by road and motor vehicles belonging to the Armed Forces, the Garda Síochana or the Fire Service are currently not subject to mandatory roadworthiness testing. Vehicles registered before 1980 are also exempt from the test. "
