Spotted on Gumtree Australia, this is the FWD Turbo version of the TX3. They are essentially a derivative of the Group A Rally Mazda Familia (although, in this version its only the 12wd, but stil has the same DOHC turbo engine). Great power to weight ratio, and the car looks in reaosnable condition if the high mileage is correct. There are a few of these that have survived and they're hbecoming popular! A bargain turbo hatch to watch for sure!
Offered through a dealer in Leichardt in 2020, this is one of the rare De Tomaso Daihatsu Charades - offered in this generation only in the Japanese market. The car was factory modified with a rav=ce derived camshaft, and the 1.6l engine produced 91kw. De Tomaso applied their custom body kit, and Recaro seats were fitted standard. The cars are fairly unique and sought after these days. At the time we spotted this one, it was asking over $15,000. We suspect it will more likely find a buter at the $10 - 12K mark.
Purchased from Romsey in Victoria around 1995 - originally Nugget Gold.
Full restoration from ground up. Non original paint code or trim, custom dash, 1275 engine with a little work and SC Gearbox. Standard flaring with 5.5 Mini Lites x 12. Brakes converted to 4 pot and booster added.
This was going to be a quick fixer upper but ended up being stripped and built from the ground up.
This 1978 998 LS was advertised on Ebay over several weeks in 2020. Finished in Iridium Green, and appears to be a very original car, with the seller stating it has 43,000 original km. Given the condition, the km claim is probably genuine. The Iridium Green cars came with cream cloth trim, 10 inch ROH mags (painted gold), and Marshal fog lamps built into the grille. Very few are around.
Spotted on Graysonline.com.au, a slightly modified 998 LS, this one from Feb 77. Turns out more were built in Feb 77 than first realised.. Needs a bit of work to bring it back to original. Bids on the last day this one was available are sitting at 12K AUD.
Spotted for sale on boatsales.com.au, the 24-foor Maree II was one of several offshore fishing sports boats built by Halvorsen in the early 1960s. This is probably the best example in existance, fully refurbished and now abailable for $94,750. See the link below for further details:
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.
