This is my 1996 CL500 (Australian delivered C140 coupe - future classic), which I purchased in June 2019, with approximately 157,000km on the clock. An extremely rare car these days, you'd be lucky to see a couple a year on the roads - reason being that there were so few built globally (less than 30,000, and probably less than 1,000 for the Australian market?). If anyone has the stats I'd love to know. Runs and drives like nothing else I've ever had.
The last of the REAL Mercedes coupes. This CL500 presents in excellent condition, and was advertised on Trademe.co.nz in May 2019. The C140 ran from the early 1990s, and as far as we're concerned are the best of the coupes Merc built, and now are available at some very low prices. We expect to see prices of the S500 / CL500 cars increase significantly over the next decade as they are a very low production coupe by modern standards.
A very rare New Zealand delivered new MK2 Cooper S finished in Island Blue. This example was advertised on trademe NZ in May 2019. Looks to have been very well restored to its original specifications. I think this is the first Austin on the register which is a NZ new car! All rebuilt to original specifications.
1979 Chrysler Scorpion Coupe 2.6 Ltr 5 speed manual in Yellow with Grey trim - this nice example was advertised on ebay.com.au in May 2019. Looks like a solid Scorpion with an excellent nody and paint, but needs a bit of a clean-up in the interior. Few come up these days and they're a great looking coupe. Expecting to see some price rises soon for these.
If you've got one (or a Mitsubishi Scorpion), sign up and add yours!
Advertised on Ebay.com.au in May 2018, this late model 320ce is a high mileage example, but a rare late model with the 3.2 engine which you see very few of. Still looks to be holding up relatively well for its age and mileage, as you'd expect from the W124 merc. Look forward to seeing a few more of these 320CE coupes and convertibles added to the register.
Spotted on Ebay Australia in May 2019 - must be the only Chrysler LeBaron Town and Country Convertible in Australia, or at most one of a handful, given there were only around 1,100 built. This example is in excellent condition, has air conditioning, power steering and power windows, upholstery and interior show almost no wear. Power top still works. This is something a little different which you don't ever see down under.. An interesting collector car if you're into 80s American vehicles. I think this is the first one on Classicregister.com!
Spotted this MK2 S advertised on ebay.com.au in May 2019. Looks to be in excellent condition. The owner at the time noted that it may have been one of the cars restored at Mini & Moke World, Brookvale - was on their webpage apparently. Nice to see another Camino Gold MK2 example - a very rare Australian Cooper S withouly around 2,500 MK2s built. If you've got one, please add yours to the register.
This example was advertised on Ebay Australia in May 2019. An original car fully complete, but needs a stripe kit added and a bit of TLC. This one has an auto transmission. The seller noted the car was updated with a later B230E and 4 Spd auto.
