A very original example of the NZ spec 1275 GT in its original Brazilian Bronze paint. This one was asking $8,700 on trademe NZ in October 2018. Looks to be a relatively easy restoration project at a reasonable price assuming it's still on the road.
The first oine on Classic Register - spotted on Yahoo auctions in Japan asking $99,900 Yen. This was indeed a strange car, modified by tuning company AMG, providing mainly styling improvements to the Mitsubishi Debonair sedan in addition to the trim which was also referred to a British styling house.

Green Senator 185i - relatively high mileage for a car like this, but seems in decent condition. This one was spotted for sale in NZ in 2018 asking $12,500 NZD. Fitted with the lower spec 185i engine, it's a cheap way to get into a modern HSV which will surely become more collectible in the coming two decades.
If you have a 90s HSV, please add yours to the register so we can keep track of all those still out there
There are images on this website of a Mini LS on a stand at a motor show. This is believed to be the vehicle on the stand at the Melbourne Motor Show in March 1977. The original owner was a mini enthusiast and is believed to have purchased the car at the show. The full history of this car is known from new and the daughter of the original owner still lives in the town where this car spent most if it's life. She has seen the restored car.
Another Australian Clubman GT found advertised in NZ - only 200 were exported there. Surprising that we've seen quite a few survivors. This one is a project car clearly, but everything is there and some serious work has already begun. Importantly the car comes with its disc brakes and correctlt prefixed 1206 engine.
At the time this one was advertised it was asking starting bids of $9,000 NZD plus, with a buy it now price of $11,000.
This one has been sitting on trademe NZ for a while, a great looking example of the 1200 in Orange - The seller at the time didn't clarify but it appears to have been fully restored to original spec. This one the first 1200 on classic register by the look of it. If anyone has a classic 1200 (particualarly a SSS) we'd love to seee it - sign up and add your car :)
The last of the Studebakers, this is an excellent opportunity to purchase one of only 620 V-8 Daytona Sports Sedans built for the 1966 year. Manufactured in the Hamilton Ontario plant, this particular car is believed to be the last Studebaker sold new in South Dakota - where it still resides today. This would make an ideal collector piece for the late model Studebaker enthusiast, with little work required to get the car back on the road or into show condition.
This one is a true time capsule, having spent the last 40 years in storage, and is described by the current owner as all original. As a result, the car has an exceptionally low 15,383 miles on the clock, and is even fitted with its original tyres. There have been several beautifully restored and preserved examples of the 1966 Studebaker come up for sale in recent years, but it's uncommon to find one with such low mileage in what is already a small pool of vehicles remaining.
The body is in great shape, with only the paint on the hood and trunk lid suffering from surface rust during the car's time in storage. The original Niagra Blue Mist paint is otherwise in excellent condition, and there's no structural rust to speak of. The original black vinyl roof is also in great shape for the car's age.
Inside, the vehicle was optioned with black vinyl (one of only 3 trim colours available in 1966) which would clean up well. The revised 1966 trim and accessories are all in excellent condition and everything is where it should be. The car has the optional centre console fitted between the front bucket seats, and a period airconditioning system could easily be fitted if desired (this was optional on the 66 Daytona).
We hope this well preserved example finds an enthusiast to protect this piece of history, and get it back on the road where it can be enjoyed. If you'd like to inspect the vehicle or have any questions, contact Mark by clicking the contact seller button at the top of this page.
