DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
[Docket No. 94-76; Notice 2]

 
Decision That Nonconforming 1971 Iso Grifo Lusso Passenger Cars 
Are Eligible for Importation

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of decision by NHTSA that nonconforming 1971 Iso Grifo 
Lusso passenger cars are eligible for importation.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces the decision by NHTSA that 1971 Iso 
Grifo Lusso passenger cars not originally manufactured to comply with 
all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards are eligible for 
importation into the United States because they are substantially 
similar to a vehicle originally manufactured for importation into and 
sale in the United States and certified by its manufacturer as 
complying with the safety standards (the U.S.-certified version of the 
1971 Iso Grifo Lusso), and they are capable of being readily altered to 
conform to the standards.

DATES: This decision is effective December 16, 1994.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ted Bayler, Office of Vehicle Safety 
Compliance, NHTSA (202-366-5306).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. Sec. 30141(a)(1)(A) (formerly section 
108(c)(3)(A)(i) of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act 
(the Act)), a motor vehicle that was not originally manufactured to 
conform to all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards shall 
be refused admission into the United States unless NHTSA has decided 
that the motor vehicle is substantially similar to a motor vehicle 
originally manufactured for importation into and sale in the United 
States, certified under 49 U.S.C. 30115 (formerly section 114 of the 
Act), and of the same model year as the model of the motor vehicle to 
be compared, and is capable of being readily altered to conform to all 
applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards.
    Petitions for eligibility decisions may be submitted by either 
manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 
49 CFR part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice 
in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords 
interested persons an opportunity to comment on the petition. At the 
close of the comment period, NHTSA decides, on the basis of the 
petition and any comments that it has received, whether the vehicle is 
eligible for importation. The agency then publishes this decision in 
the Federal Register.
    G&K Automotive Conversion, Inc. of Santa Ana, California 
(Registered Importer R-90-007) petitioned NHTSA to decide whether 1971 
Iso Grifo Lusso passenger cars are eligible for importation into the 
United States. NHTSA published notice of the petition on September 27, 
1994 (59 FR 49282) to afford an opportunity for public comment. The 
reader is referred to that notice for a thorough description of the 
petition. No comments were received in response to the notice. Based on 
its review of the information submitted by the petitioner, NHTSA has 
decided to grant the petition.

Vehicle Eligibility Number for Subject Vehicles

    The importer of a vehicle admissible under any final decision must 
indicate on the form HS-7 accompanying entry the appropriate vehicle 
eligibility number indicating that the vehicle is eligible for entry. 
VSP 88 is the vehicle eligibility number assigned to vehicles 
admissible under this decision.

Final Determination

    Accordingly, on the basis of the foregoing, NHTSA hereby decides 
that a 1971 Iso Grifo Lusso not originally manufactured to comply with 
all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards is substantially 
similar to a 1971 Iso Grifo Lusso originally manufactured for 
importation into and sale in the United States and certified under 49 
U.S.C. 30115, and is capable of being readily altered to conform to all 
applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards.

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 30141 (a)(1)(A) and (b)(1); 49 CFR 593.8; 
delegations of authority at 49 CFR 1.50 and 501.8.

Associate Administrator for Enforcement.
