How would a person go about getting a T from Oregon to Hawaii?

I vote for a ship. The train takes too long.

My brother shipped his '50 Chevy pickup over there. It went in a container and he picked it up over there. I don't know the details but a search ought to do it.

Hunt is probably right - Container

Container is the way. Call around a port area and find someone who will handle 20 footer hard tops...that way you could have the whole container to yourself and have it chocked and tied down your way with nobody else needing to share the load and/or moving your 'prize'.

I hate to say it, but I agree with Mack. I visit Hawaii annually, and between the high humidity and the salt air, vintage tin hasn't much of a chance.

Container is the way. Find a port and a "Shipper" that goes to Hawaii. Once you have determined which port having a container ship that goes to Hawaii, then find a "Shipper" at that port and he will handle it. If you do not have transportation to the sea port, the "Shipper" can also take care of that. I suggest, that you trailer your T to the shipping port and witness your T going in the container. You do not want your car sitting dock side or in a holding lot (Un-protected) until it is loaded in the container. Talk with several shippers as prices may vary.
Make sure the container ship is going to Hawaii and not some other port where the container would be off loaded and transferred to some other ship. Make sure you know when the container with your T is due to dock in Hawaii.

there are brokers that ship a full container to hawaii. From LA to Hawaii its about $5000 for a 20'

You will probably have to have Drain the fuel and oil.

I use Hawaiian express based in La Mirada, Ca to ship our products. I have also shipped from Portland and Seattle.

Good Luck
