It’s crucial to have owned the vehicle for at least 6 months prior to the shipping to the country. You would also need to have lived in the USA for at least 12 months prior to the shipping as well. As per the Icelandic Custom regulations it is against the laws to sell your vehicle to anyone else. If you plan to leave the city you would have to take the vehicle with you.
