It was obviously a very popular colour in NZ - of the few GTs we have on the register here, the Brown / Bronze GTs are the most numerous. This one looks to be in great condition, and was asking $10K NZD in Oct 2019 on trademe.co.nz. The owner noted at the time that the carpet is original, and in great condition. Seats look to have an aftermarket re-trim in similar to original colours..
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.
Hard to find these early 1275 GTS - this one with its original 10 inch wheels (as appeared on early GTs before they went to the 12 inch). Looks to be relatively original from a distance, but has had some inyteresting vinyl work done to the foor and quite a bit of engine work. Not much needed to bring it back to factory (which is what I'd want to do).
This one was advertised on Ebay UK in Oct 2019 with a classified price of 8,950 GBP. The seller noted the following comments at the time it was advertised:
Not too often you see the CL / S600 come up in this sort of condition, with only 36,550 miles on the clock. Immaculate in and out, we spotted this one on ebay USA in October 2019. A real museum piece and future classic for sure. The last of the Bruno Sacco Benz cars. The seller made the following comments at the time of sale, asking $26,000 USD:
"Mercedes 1996 S600 Mint original, garage kept, 36,000 miles. Concours condition, no dust on car, inside , or engine.1 of a kind condition, everything works. Serviced and kept in great condition"
Unfortunately the chassis number details were not provided when we spotted this 65 Sports Sedan on Craigslist.org in October 2019. The body looks to be in average condition, but supposedly the car runs. Needs a bit of work - asking $4,000 at the time. It's lost its original vinyl roof, but still looks good in a single tone faded red (Bordeaux Red if we're not mistaken). Looks a bit too dark to be Sienna Red. A great project for someone.
At the time this Studebaker Daytona was advertised, the seller made the following comments:
It's been a while since we spotted another for the register, possibly the first of 2019 (and it's now October!). This one popped up on Craigslist USA asking $11,300, which I think is a bargain. At the time of offering the seller noted the following comments:
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.
Lovely combination, this rare 420 SEC is finished in white with contrasting red cloth interior. This example was spotted for sale on trademe.co.nz in Sep 2019, and seems to be a well looked after example with (relatively) low ks. The car is noted on carjam as an aftermarket import. Like Australia, it's hard to find a NZ delivered car with the cloth seats like this. This one most likely came from Hong Kong or Japan.
