Good to see such an original car - again spotted in NZ where quite a few were imported. The precurser to the Evo, and a very competent rally car, the Galant VR-4 is a real future classic straight out of Group A, and is one of the lesser known alternatives to the big names. This example was spotted on trademe.co.nz and we just had to add it to the register here - a beautifully kept original example with very low km for the age.
If you';ve got a E39 VR-4, sign up and add yours.
Very cool hardtop Corona advertised on trademe NZ, Not exactly sure of the series, so I have guessed the title, bu it's a 1973 model, with a heap of work done, and at the time it was advertised on Trademe NZ, was asking $30,000 NZD. Not many of these around any more.
This is the info from 2018. I have recently bought this car in 2020. Read further below for more info.
The car is in orriginal condition very good for its age,
since looking up the vin/chassis NO 022D2S1MO923702 This no has appeared in classic magazine,stating you now have 3 of these non performing cars on your regester and they had a chassis number frefix 022D2S1MO9 1977models built in febuary [mine was built in november 1976],
I have been told the number 1 after the S repesents the first of the new model roduced being the 998cc LS model,
Very nice Galkant GTO spotted on trademe NZ in May 2020! AT the time it was offered, the seller had quite a bit of information about the car and noted it was the 6th car imported from Japan by Todd Motors, and was used as a demonstration car by Molyneux Motors Alexandra, then owned by the garage owners wife, then to a elderly Roxburgh gentlemen. then into storage for aprox 12 years. When put back on the road again , the motor was reconditioned, brakes and steering joints done with original parts, 4 new tyres fitted as well.
Very rarely do they come up, but at the moment there are two on gumtree Australia. This one, spotted in May 2020, was asking $25,000.
Limited details were given in the advertisement, but the car looks to be in excellent condition, with its original SVO type wheels, great paint and low km for the car's age.
