Looks like it's a hearse. High top, blacked out sides. That would be cool to drive around. Have a lot of fun at car shows with that...Hi,
I saw this strange Fairlane for sale in Germany. It has a Mercedes engine. Any ideas?

Not a problem for me, I live in the Netherlands (Holland), next to Germany.I am sure you won't find any here in the US. Probably won't be able to ship it over also because of federal vehicle laws won't allow it to be shipped and on the roads here. Totally different safety laws here and there.
That depends on year model of mfg I think... and in the 60's there wasnt much in the way of emissions... Some states here doesnt even require a title if over a certain age, but thats neither here nor there. I would think if you had the money, and REALLY REALLY wanted it, It COULD be imported here irregardless. Conversion of 1100EUR came to 1499.99USD just a bit ago... (its like the stock market, its a moving target) lolYes thats true. You can take one from here and use it anywhere but you can't take from there and use it here... Sucks...
I know someone whom imported a car when they were in the millitary in the 70's. Time went by. My brother in law whom was also in the millitary in the 90's could not get a car back no matter how much he tryed. He had to sell it there... I don't remember what the car was, but, it wasen't available here at all.Personally having done it, I know that 1967 was the cut off year for "easy" shipping to the states. If the title states that it is a 1966, it could be imported with few questions asked. In 1968 there were new US DOT safety equipment requirements (like bars in the doors) which were not mandatory in European vehicles at the time.
The 67' Dino that I imported was never sold in the US market and yet there are litterly hundreds of them found in the US now. The lack of US emissions for this car wasn't a problem for it either, again 1968 was the first year of DOT required emissions equipment in the 49 states. I had all the paperwork verified before having it put on the ship and I did not rely on expensive 3rd party importers. It didn't hurt that I was in Europe on military assignment and was entitled to send a car back . . . .
I simply took the title to the local AAA and they took care of it and gave me tags. Then I took it to the nearest PA safety inspection station for its yearly sticker-which is a requirement for most non-antique tagged cars in PA.
You just need to study the import regs . . . .
