    AU$3800 per vehicle was what it cost me in 2016 to have them landed, then approx NZ$400 per vehicle at this end.

    I believe the rules have changed since then. My Hilux is the MY12 and does not have electronic stability control, so is ANCAP 4 Star. From what I understand that would no longer qualify for import.

    None of the 70 series Land Cruisers sold in Aus were ANCAP 5 Star until Sept 2016. Only the single cab is rated. Prior to that they were 3 Star. Australian troop carriers are extremely agricultural and have very limited modern safety features. You don’t have to go too far back to find models that didn’t even have ABS.

    Im not home atm where I have the paper trail but about $2600 across the Tasman. Pick up within 60 km of Brisbane to Port , no charge. Must be ready within days of sail date. After crossing about 10 days, The vehicle will be delivered to a compliance center of my choice which was Nelson.
    MPI fee approx $600, making sure there are no hitch hikers on car.
    Compliance is standard fee for new car via vtnz, worth giving them a call.
    Now the bad news. GST, you must give Customs the bought price via the payment receipt. They will then calculate the gst to be paid.
    If you can buy and keep the car in Oz in your name for 12 months then no GST when entering NZ.

    I gave Customs my invoice which had cartage from Gold Coast to Brisbane and a new water pump on it. Silly me thought they would charge gst on purchase only, but no they charged on whole invoice, which pushed my buttons. Never mind I got a very good deal.
    So get car price only to give to Customs. Australia has gst too so make sure it is vehicle price only and not incl gst or you will be paying NZ gst on Oz gst as well, not a pleasant thought.

    After going through the process I wouldnt hesitate to do it again.

    Seems like there are “huge” risks importing & so appreciate the wise members advice. I still would like to get a vehicle I’d hang on to for years & so will plod on (but with caution). I’ll be sure to follow up on this thread to let you guys know outcome as I continue research as there’s a lot of guys like me keen on similar specialty vehicle for a keeper 👍🏽

    Def avoid mines vehicles, but also anything used on beaches (surf lifesaving, border patrol, fraser island etc etc). There are a few hire companies in Aus using them and while they don't dissolve like the mines vehicles, they tend to slip through some of the id points being one owner, full service history. You take a cursory look at them and clean and bright, but look underneath the underbody sealer and there ain't much there - if the rust stops holding hands it's all over (land)rover.

    I wouldn’t touch that pile of FeO2 with a barge pole.

    Read the comments:

    There is rust over different areas on the body. Some of which you can see in the photos. It has also been driven on sea ice (frozen ocean) so rust underneath is probable.

    Why do people pay such high prices for old 4wd's in NZ?

    I often wonder the same thing
    Second hand utes seem to go for almost as much sometimes more than new.

    They stopped making good ones a quarter century ago.

    Scarcity=value, according to economic ttheory.

    Nah, I disagree with that. Second hand prices for FWD's were high a quarter century ago. Even out of the more modern utes there only seems to be $10k difference between 10 years old and new. Which is weird in a country known for being tight arses.
