Thank you.Importing the Vehicle
For CBP clearance you will need the shipper’s or carrier’s original bill of lading, the bill of sale, foreign registration, and any other documents covering the vehicle. You will also be required to complete EPA form 3520-1 and DOT form HS-7, declaring the emissions and safety provisions under which the vehicle is being imported. Vehicles that meet all U.S. emission requirements will bear manufacturer’s label on the engine compartment in English, attesting to that fact. For vehicles that lack such a label, the CBP inspector at the port of entry may require proof of eligibility to import under the EPA exemptions or exclusions specified on form 3520-1.*

You can actually find all the instructions here
, but I pasted the most relevant information.States
Each state has its own rules on registering the vehicle. If you can get it into the USA, then registering it with a state should be relatively easy. For CA, see here
. For Montana, see here
. It would simply be a process of going though the paperwork.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
