  1. Browse our small portfolio of classic cars

  3. To proceed with the purchase of the car, we will send you an invoice and detail how to make your payment by telegraphic transfer.
  4. After we have confirmed your payment your vehicle will be booked on the next available vessel to your nearest available port. The documents will be sent to you by DHL a few days after the car has been shipped.
  5. Once you have received the documents you can arrange collection and registration in your country.

The Japan Trading Direct team are experts in tracking down exclusive, hard to find collectible cars in great condition. Please email us at info@japantradingdirect.com with as much detail as possible. We will get back to you as soon as possible to confirm the search.

Why buy from Japan?
The Japanese car market is a treasure trove of rare, beautiful classic cars. In Japan you can find vintage classic cars and high spec sports cars with relatively low mileage that have been well maintained.

The demand within Japan for collectible classic cars is not as high as in many other countries making the price of older, classic cars relatively low. So even with shipping charges and port fees etc you can get a good price for a highly desirable motor.

Does Japan Trading Direct specialise in a particular model of car?
The team at Japan Trading Direct has a wide grasp and understanding of the collectible classic car market from Ferraris to Land Rovers to Toyota Supras and Mitsubishi Lancers. If you are looking to import a Japanese vehicle, Japan Trading Direct is the place to start.

That said we do have a special soft spot for air-cooled Porsches. These beauties have made up a high proportion of our purchases and exports over recent years. We love to locate fabulously maintained Porsches – some of our favourites are 911R, 930 Turbo, 993RS, 993GT2, 964RS.
