Spotted for sale on Hemmings in February 2018 - huge mileage, and asking $12,000 USD, located at Sun Classic Cars in the Netherlands. One of the best modern classic wagons, I think this is the first 850 T5-R wagon on classicregister.com. The car is equipped with the following options: air conditioning, electric windows, heated seats, electric roof and a detachable towbar. The car has had only 2 owners. At 209,564km the engine has been replaced by a Volvo dealer. The counter reading is now 468,500km. A super complete Volvo 850 T5-R that is ready for many kilometers.
Another spotted in NZ, this one was advertised in early 2019 - believed to be one of only around 20 left in the country (at least, according to the seller at the time). A high mileage example, but depending on the rust looks to be worth saving, with most parts intact. Seller at the time noted that the car was running. Hopefully someone saved it!

This original example of the Lotius Cortina was spotted for sale in New Zealand in February 2018 - looks to be an exceptionally kept car, with lots of mechanical refurbishment work completed. At the time it was advertised, the seller was asking $125,000 NZD. High, but not as high as we've seen some original examples fetch - remembering that the lotus cortina was such a great performing touring car, with many victories to its name, competing against the likes of the Cooper S.
This 1973 Ford Landau is one of just 1,385 built, and is currently held by its fourth owner who has continued to keep excellent maintenance records for the vehicle.
Sold new to a customer in Elizabeth Bay NSW, this example is believed to be a four owner car, and comes with its original owner’s manual, and substantial maintenance records from 53,000 km through to the current mileage which sits at around 132,000 km. Images showing a sample of the records held are included in the image gallery.
The car retains its original Blue paint and vinyl roof. The paint is in presentable condition and polishes up very well, and the vinyl roof is in excellent condition as shown in the images. At some stage the previous owner has fitted aftermarket alloy mag wheels. However, the original factory wheels and hubcaps are included in the sale.
Rocker panels, sills and floors all appear to be in excellent condition. There are only a few rust spots requiring attention. Locations of those areas are shown in the images, and include at the base of the rear windscreen, under a small section of the boot-lid rubber and some small bubbling spots at the base of the passenger door and front guard. The car is otherwise very solid, and has obviously been kept out of the weather throughout its life.
Inside, the white vinyl trim is in excellent condition, including the headlining, and the carpets throughout the car are excellent. The parts missing on the driver’s door (mirror control and handle frame) are included with the car. The rear cigarette lighter in the console does however need replacing. Air-conditioning, and all controls work well, and the dashboard is immaculate.
The car is fitted with its original matching numbers engine – the 351ci Cleveland. A few modifications have been carried out including the installation of Pacemaker extractors, and an FMX transmission with stage 2 shift kit. The diff ratio has also been changed from the factory 2.8:1 to 3.5:1 – however, the original diff comes with the car should a purchaser wish to return the car to original specifications.
These high-spec Australian coupes are becoming increasingly desirable, and with such low build numbers they surely represent a good long term investment. For more information or to arrange an inspection, please contact Richard by clicking the contact seller button above.
Spotted in an old blog post, we grabbed the details of this Daytona for the register - might have been advertised around 2010 on Ebay or similar. Looks rough, but an original hardtop Daytona is hard to pass up. At the time it was offered, the seller noted it was running, but not driveable. 259 CID 2 BBL V8 with 3 Speed Manual Trans on the tree(column) with factory overdrive. Needs BODYWORK. Trunk floor. Left(Drivers) Front Fender(New OEM Included). Outer Rocker panels(NEW Included) on both sides and minor floor work near the rockers.
Spotted in February 2019 - another rare XR8 Sprint from 1004 added to the register. This onw was asking $18,900 at the time. Notably the quickest Australian Ford in its day - quicker than the GT, having the same engine but a lot less weight. This example has a few modifications, including the body kit, and what looks to be modified front seat trim.

Lots of GTOs spotted recently, but never seen one this nice! Less than 1000km according to the original advertisement, and looks stock as a rock. Restored to its original colour (was painted silver at some point), and it has had some rust repairs according to the seller at the time it was advertised. A bit of other work also done - t, new front screen, brake booster reconditioned, new clutch, wiring sorted out, front seats recovered, new carpets etc.
Spotted on Yahoo auctions in February 2019, asking 550,000 JPY. Looks to be a complete car, but if the hood is anything to go by, there'd be a lot of rust throughout.. Not many of these GTOs around, nice to see one still together.
This Galant GTO shell was spotted on Yaho JP auctions in February 2019. Hopefully someone can put it back together, presuming the rust isnt too bad! Not many of these around, and only a few come up every couple of months in Japan - hugely desireable around the world now, and a nice alternative to the more common Datsun 240Zs.
If you have one, sign up and add your car to the register. Check out the others on the Mitsubishi Galant GTO GSR register.
Spotted on an old auction website copart.com (already sold), this 1964 Studebaker commander looks like it could do with some attention - plenty of surface rust, we hope someone was able to salvage what's left of it. Looks to be originally painted "Horizon Green" with matching trim.
If you've got a 64 model, add yours to the 1964 Studebaker Daytona register.
