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.
Late model example of the GT Four, imported to NZ. These cars were banned from the WRC in 1995 due to an illegal turbo part being used. WHat could have been - perhaps would have seen the WRX and Evo out of business if earlier celica performance was anything to go by... Awesome cars, and very low production numbers globally. If you've got one, please add ybours to the register.
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.
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.
This is an early MK2 Australian assembled Cooper S, and according to the Ausmini register was built in January 1970, and complied in February 1970. This was just after the introduction of compliance plates, and this vehicle is a matching number example with its original and refurbished engine fitted.
The car is one of approximately 2,500 MK2s built between 1969 and 1971, making it a very desirable and rare example, particularly over in New Zealand where the car is located. The MK2 Cooper S cars benefited from several upgrades including a full synchro gearbox, flared wheel arches, alternator and numerous other changes differentiating it from the MK1.
This particular example has undergone a full bare metal restoration, with no expense spared, finished in its original GTO Green paint with Crystal White roof. A nice set of period contessa style 10 inch mag wheels have been fitted, and finish off the car nicely. There is nothing to spend and this S is ready to enjoy, representing one of the few genuine MK2 Cooper S vehicles on offer in Australia and New Zealand.

A lovely colour combination on the 1275 GT, Gold on Creme with a gold decal. This one was spotted on trademe in late 2019, looks in solid original condition. Looks to be the correct original motor. At the time it was offered, the seller noted it runs and drives, but the rego was on hold. Check out the others on the 1275 GT register below - lots of NZ cars..
