It's been a while since one has been added to the register - this one another NZ vehicle with the unique New Zealand stripes. Looks to be mostly there and original (with correctly numbered engine), it does however have a fair bit of rust. A great project, the 1275 GT Minis are becoming a rare classic these days. Hoping someone picks up this bargain. This was originally spotted on trademe.co.nz in June 2019. If you've got a classic 1275GT, sign up and add yours to the register - we'd be interested to hear its story, whether its Euopean, South African or NZ!
This interesting Australian Clubman GT (with chassis prefixe YG2S8) was advertised for sale with turners.co.nz in June 2019. It appears to have an 1100S 1275cc engine in it, enhanced and modified. But there are plenty of the original bits still there. Would like to see this one brought back to original secs of course - there were only ever a couple of hundred Australian built GTs brought to NZ - very rare!
Advertised on Allex Holland Classic Cars in June 2019 (see here: http://www.alexhollandclassiccars.com/category/future-classics/), this is a nice clean low KM example of the C140 S class coupe - the rarest of the S class coupes, and a future classic. The traditoinal two tone silver looks great on these cars, and this has to be one of Bruno Sacco's finest designs.
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.
