Car #1=1941 Plymouth business coupe. Car #2=1936 Plymouth touring sedan. Car #3=1936 Plymouth touring sedan. Car #4=1936 or so Citroen. Car #5=1940 Nash coupe. Car #6=1964? Mercedes. Car #7=1941 Chevrolet 2-door sedan or coach.

I don't know if I am an "expert", but those are my guesses. The Plymouth coupe and the Nash coupe are my favorites of the bunch.

Whether they are worth importing is a really hard question to answer. You do not mention what shape their engines and other internal working parts are in. You do not mention their interiors, etc. How much would you have to pay to ship it it and get it through customs?

If you are asking would it be fun to import one or two and work on them to bring them back to life then sure it is worth importing them so long as you go into it expecting that your total restoration costs would greatly exceed the amount of money you would be able to sell on of these for. You would be doing it for the fun of it. If you want to make money you will need to find some really desireable autos like a 1930s Dusenberg or a 1930s or older Rolls, or an old Bugatti or the like. However, good luck finding something like that as everyone knows how valuable those kinds of autos are.

[]Interestingly, they are all left-hand drive cars...

Good eye. I'd say those are all very good "guesses."

If it were me, I would be looking at the 41 Plymouth coupe and the 40 Nash coupe as possible, use as is, original cars. Maybe the Chev. coupe also. A bit of clean up might go a long way to deciding if their condition is acceptable without putting a lot of effort into unneeded restoration work. I love coupes and the pictures sure make them look like cars that I would love to have in my garage.

Can you get a photo of that square vehicle next to the Traction Avant in the 9th pic? it looks like a primitive Jeep

I see it! Good eye!

Will attempt to get a picture up before the weekend!

Don't have one, so will have to get them to take one and send it over.

I thought old cars went the other way? Thousands of US cars go to England and Europe every year? They are probably worth more in Europe.

The only way to appraise the vehicles are with clean, clear photos of each whole vehicle and their descriptions, inside and out.

There is another coupe next to the blue Chevy in #15. It's not the 41 Plymouth (which is next to the 36 Plymouth) or the Nash which is on the near side of the Chevy.

The coupe on the other side of the Chevrolet looks to be a 1938 Plymouth.
