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.
Found on Ebay USA in October 2019 with a classified ad price of $13,500 USD. One of only 6,622 cars built, these are becoming quite collectible and were sold in quite a number of markets - tche main of course being the USA where the styling was clearly aimed. The seller didn't give any details about this particular car but it looks great - hope it found a good home. Check out the other Bertone Volvos on the register below.
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.
I’ve wanted an E since I was a kid. I purchased this 2+2 from legendary car builder, Bob Cecchini from Hayward, CA. Bob bought this car as a gift for his wife. He purchased it from his neighbor who just had the engine rebuilt at a cost of $6K. To make it the perfect present, the car was stripped to bare metal, all mechanical systems were scrutinized, and parts and systems were replaced/repaired as needed. The interior is all new. After the car was completed, the keys were handed over to the missus.
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.
This commander 2-door sedan was advertised on Ebay USA in June 2019. It's a 6-cylinder model, and one of very few built. Has its original paint and trim - and only 51,000 miles from new. The only rust on the car is on the lower left fender which can be seen in the images.
A rare commander 2-door sedan, this one spotted on a content farm site, in its original Sienna Red. This particular car is a 6-cylinder model, and would make an excellent project. The car looks fairly solid (limited rust) and has a great factory colour. Check out the other 1965 Studebaker Commanders on the register.
