This Chairman was advertised in QLD Australia on Gumtree.com.au in November 2019. It was originally advertised as a a 2007 model, but a rego search confirms its a 2005. Low ks, buf not sure how well its been looked after, certainly going cheap asking only $1,000 - no rego at the time it was offered, NOt many of these sold in Australia.. If yiou've got one, sign up and add yours to the register.
This Humber Super Snipe Mark IV Limousine was manufactured and assembled in the UK in 1953. This is unusual for an Australian Humber as they were usually exported to Australia in a completely knocked down form for assembly at the Rootes factory at Fishermans Bend in Melbourne.
It is believed that this particular car was one of six Humber Super Snipe Limousines that were delivered to Brisbane in January 1954 for the Queens Coronation Tour of Australia. Government archives indicate that these cars were on loan from the manufacturer for the duration of the tour.
Another spotted for sale on Craigslist, needing some interior attention! This one at the time it was advertised was asking $750! If you like rare Volvo coupes, now has never been a better time, clearly.
At the time of advertisement, the seller noted:
This one was spotted on Craiogslist.com in October 2019, and is in a very sad state. One of only 8,500 Bertone designed cars built, the majority of which were sold in the USA. The Bertone 780 is a substantial advancement from the earlier Bertone Volvo Coupes built on the 240 series chassis - and in my opinion is a very refined looking coupr for its time, blending in well with other European coupes of the time. Let's hope this one finds a loving new home and has a bit of trim work done.
We spotted this rare Brock Fairmont Ghia B8 on Ebay in September 2019. Looks to have a bit of rust, but not too bad. A great project and probably a good investment. There are a few of these that come up for sale each year which is surprising considering there were a couple of hundred of the B8s built. This particular car is number 84, Finished in Rosewood red / burgundy. There are quite a few Brock Fairmont Ghia and Falcons here on Classic Register. Some of the others are listed below.
Car has sat for 2 years - was imported directly from Germany for an Embassy and an ambassador was driving it. The car is in fair condition for its age, and everything is there, however, it does not start and interior will need some attention (some sun damage). Everything is original, no modifications or upgrades. This vehicle is perfect candidate for restoration, with the C140 coupes fas becoming future classics.
