The first thing you should do is make a call to the US Customs office in the port you intend to ship to. Do this even if you're still in the UK. I've always found the local offices to be helpful and it's in your interest for them to get to know you or at least know who you are before your car arrives. When I brought my Super in, I'd talked to the Customs office so many times, they all remembered me. They also told me how much they appreciated me going to the effort of making sure I had all the paperwork in order. If you can help them do their job, they're happy. Alternatively, you can hire a customs broker to to the work for you.
If your car is less than 25 years old, don't bring it in.
