Any chance you were looking at the grey HDJ81 manual that had 98000km and sold at a dealer for 6mil yen? If so, I'd recommend looking for cruisers at auction. That specific cruiser sold at USS Tokyo for 4.4mil and immediately went up for sale at a dealership a few days following for the much heftier pricetag.They mostly don’t seem to exist right now anywhere that isn’t BaT, but the non auction prices this past spring was around 45k for what I wanted.
For cruiser prices, depends on transmission and engine. You'll pay a premium for a 1hd-ft manual, but can get gas auto's in great condition for comparatively cheap.what prices are you seeing for the 95-97 and what are the import costs these days?
For import costs, I'd say reasonable expectation would be anywhere from $4-6k (USD) depending on importer/broker fees, where you buy the vehicle (inland transport costs), how far you live from a port (if you need delivery), and auction house or dealership fees (prices vary)
