Welcome aboard, Sd.Kfz. Ask as many questions as you can think of, lots of helpful folks around here. If you feel like it you can start a thread for your car in the owners category. We look forward to seeing pics of your Monaco.
I was told that "no rust, drives good and bad seats, interior otherwise good"- which was enough for me, because I wanted a driveable project car.
Overall costs from the car, transport on land & container, agent's fee & import tax+VAT, are about the same as car from here. Well maybe a bit more, but it's hard to find unrusted 4d sedans from here(actually there has been only two or three 4d sedan's for sale in the past six months - a 76 Royal or two and a 76 Gran fury). And this is a real 74 so I don't even have to find the front clip.
Not sure about converting to blumo though.. Maybe someday if the pushbar is street legal here.

^Well a '75 would be ok too. Obsession you know.
I've followed finnish sale sites for about 7-8 years, but the difference is that now I had the money to buy one. I've missed few cheaper opportunities over the years due to slowness but the prices have gone from 2-3000 euros to 4-6000(or more) for not so good ones and almost every one is a royal or ht.
