If I'm understanding this, you're carrying a duffel bag of money, so to speak?Another Update....Finally got the cash deal sorted out, spoke with multiple people within the National Bank organization about how to proceed, got the final confirmation from a manager at a bank in his local area that is fine with me flying in and then picking up the cash.
Deposit on the car has been sent, and I have booked my flights there and back towards the end of May....so the car is almost officially mine again!
You can carry as much as you want. The 10k limit without declaring is for taking cash across the border, in or out, or depositing in a bank....
I don't know about in Canada, but in the US I believe there are laws limiting how much cash a person can carry on their person.
It's not illegal to carry it, but if above that amount, it can be seized anyway if it is discovered...
For availability,you are best off going 15 inch.Only deterioration I saw was the paint on the steering column is starting to flake off, one of the power windows didn't want to work, and the chrome on the console top plates has gotten a lot worse...it was in OK shape when I sold it but I had used the best pieces I could find at the time. Once it's home I'll go through the car front to back and replace all the hoses, seals, and service every system on the car to get it ready for cruising again.
I had forgotten and was actually surprised that I had only opted for 14x6 Chrome magnum 500's...I was sure I had put 15" on it, they were brand new reproduction rims back when I put them on. I like 15" rims so not sure what I'm going to do yet...just replace the old 14" Goodyear Eagle St's, or maybe look at a 15" chrome mag 500 with new tires?
I was lucky enough to spend too much money on my Coronet (my first car) to ever consider sellingI searched for my 1st car before, a 69 Road Runner with no luck.
But you sir, have got plenty of luck by finding and being able to get back your old Coronet.
Congrats on following through with your search and acquisition on a very cool B body.
