Great to stumble acrpss this very well preserved original example of the VR-4 - the Evo 1 essentially.. This nice example was asking $20,000 (NZD) - a New Zealand based car (many of these seemed to have sold there.

WIth 13 WRC series victories, the ST165 GT-Four is a very respectable Group A rally car - this one advertised on trademe NZ in August 2018 asking $14,000. Not many come up, and their 80s styling looks better every day :)
1967 Morris Mini Cooper S MK1 - Genuine Australia assembled Cooper S. Sold new in Albany Creek in Queensland. This example was advertised on Gumtree Australia in August 2018, asking $52,000 (AUD).
