There's this law that prohabit's import of vehicles older than a few years, so please do your homework carefully before you go out there to buy one of these. One of my friends wanted to get a 60's mustang and he was'nt able to.

Anyways, 90's Hilux's and 4 runners are available here too. I remember looking at an advertisement in one of the Auto magazines of a 92 Hatchback Hilux going for about 2.2Lakhs in delhi about a year ago. Then there's this guy in Mohali Ph-1 who used to have(or maybe still owns it) an Ex-Jackie Shrof Black Hilux pickup, complete with 33" tires and 4" lift, and as far as i've heard, he bought it for not more than a lakh.

But, considering we can now get our hand on a Tata Xenon, do you really want to get an older vehicle.

Forget the idea of buying in Nepal and importing in India. Nepal has 180% plus 13% VAT against import of vehicle. A 12,000 US$ vehicle would cost 40,000 US$ in Nepal. A 1988 model Hilux in running condition cost me INR 5 lacs more than 2 years ago. Buying in India would be cheap and logical.

Surprising Nepal has such a steep rate of import duty. Does Nepal have an auto industry of its own, in terms of manufacturing/assembling vehicles?

It has Hulas Motors which assembles chinese components and which looks like a vehicle to me. It doesn't sell much. A lot of revenue is generated via vehicle import.
