How this works

I am not a “Used Car Dealer” and do not wish to become one.  I am an importer/facilitator.  I do not want a used-car lot, inventory, or any overhead whatsoever.  I happen to be a Licensed Vehicle Manufacturer, but that is another story – see the “About Us” section for more details.

Because I have no lot and because I don’t maintain any state-side inventory (if I can help it), the prices I offer are ALWAYS going to be lower than you will find anywhere else in the U.S. for a comparable vehicle.

So How Does This Work?

Unless otherwise noted on the individual listing, all of the vehicles shown are in Japan, six to seven weeks away from the East Coast and four weeks away from the West Coast; I simply do not order a vehicle from Japan until it is requested by a customer here.  While this way of doing business must scare away no less than 90% of my potential business, I’m ok with that-I'm busy as hell.  But I’ll tell you what, the people that do purchase vehicles from me have been happy.  And as I sell four to six JDM vehicles a week, I’m not too displeased either.

Regarding the prices that you see on the website associated with each vehicle; The listed price includes EVERY cost associated with putting this vehicle in Allentown, PA.  There are NO additional fees whatsoever.  As all my vehicles are over 25 years old, they do not need any modifications to be entirely legal for on-road use in all 49 states.  Buyers are furnished with the car, the keys and ALL of the paperwork required to obtain a valid title in every state in the nation except Kalifornia.  It isn’t magic, trickery, or fudging anything, it is completely legal.  Everyone that has purchased one of my imported vehicles has been able to obtain their state title and registration – a 100% success rate!  If you don’t believe me and want me to do it, I’ll obtain a valid PA title for you prior to delivery, but THAT will cost extra.  Moreover, we can have your purchase delivered to any port in the US, as well as any other country – just tell me where and I’ll tell you what the price will be.

TERMS: For all vehicles listed on this website, payment-in-full is required on order. If you want to save money, you can pick up the car at port (I will provide all paperwork you need to do so) and I will take $300 off the price.

Payment is by Visa, Mastercard, American Express, ACH (all thru Quicken) PayPal, PayPal Credit, cash, check, money order, or bank wire. There is a 5% surcharge when paying with Credit Card, and check/money order must be sent using a tracking number.  CAUTION – I will not “hold” a vehicle.  If you send a check, and someone else’s wired funds get here first, they get the car, you get your check back.  We accept no deposits to “hold” a vehicle.

All conditions of the vehicles are disclosed prior to purchase to the very best of my ability.  Both you and I are granted 7 days to review the vehicle after arrival to find any undisclosed problems and – although seller will not take the vehicle back – you will be financially reimbursed for whatever the documented problem is.  To date the most significant issue that I have encountered was a faulty battery and the seller wired me $140 in 24 hours.

Prices are completely, 100%, set-in-stone non-negotiable. But cash talks.  If you are literally standing in front of me with cash, then we can chat.  Buy more than one and of course we can negotiate.  In person.

100% Unconditional, No-Questions-Asked Money-Back Guarantee – Your Invoice will show this in writing as well; Papp Brothers Automotive UNCONDITIONALLY GUARANTEES 100% satisfaction with your purchase, with sole remedy being the return of the vehicle’s full purchase price (not including any shipping costs)   No questions asked, your money back.  This is not being nice.  This is not even to make sure everyone is happy (although that is a side effect)  Your Land Cruiser will be worth $3,000-$4000 more just by the fact that it is already in the USA.  I’ll make MORE money on the vehicle if you want your money back.

Common Q&A

Q – Is this car 50-state Street-Legal?
A- EVERY vehicle sold on our website is street legal. In ANY state. (except for Kalifornia) PERIOD. This is not an opinion, this is a fact. If you cannot get a title in your state with the paperwork I give you, I will buy the car back for DOUBLE what you paid for it. (I only offer this because it won't happen)

Q – But my friend's brother's mailman said these are not legal for road use in the state of (enter state here)
A- He is mis-informed

Q – Do you have any stock that I can come look at?
A- As most all of our vehicles are sold before they arrive stateside, very rarely do we have stock, but please do check with us on the off chance that we have something available. You can contact us and check, but probably not. We are not a used car lot and do not want to be one.

Q – Will you trade for X, Y or Z?
A – Z only trades we accept are green and have presidents on them.

Q – Can I meet with you so I know who I’m dealing with?
A – Of course – email, phone or text and we'll get together and you can buy me breakfast so we can chat.

Q – You expect me to pay for a car now and wait weeks for it to arrive?
A – Yeah, that part sucks. It is also the way this works. It is also why my prices are a fraction of the cost for the same vehicle anywhere else in the nation.
