importing a Jimny to the US...
...is pretty much impossible - no, make that impractical - to do.
The law says that a vehicle that is not manufactured for the US market can only be imported into the United States if:
A it is more than 25 years old.
2. it has been modified at the owner's expense
to meet EPA vehicle specifications upon inspection by the EPA. Information on how to do that is not easily obtainable.
III. it is a kit car. (I mention this because you COULD purchase a Jimny in the UK and have it converted by Dutton Ltd. to an amphibious vehicle then imported. They also make a kit car based on the Mark 8 Fiesta)
That is the Reader's Digest version of how it works.
