Another nice example of the Chummy - this one offered for sale in New Zealand, spotted in February 2019 asking $15,995. Not a lot of work required to get this one in top shape, the seller at the time noting it was off the road for 28 years many of which were in a Museum and has been garaged all its life. All weather fittings including a hood envelope. It is the first of the ignition coil model with the chrome radiator surround.
Spotted for sale on Hemmings in February 2018 - huge mileage, and asking $12,000 USD, located at Sun Classic Cars in the Netherlands. One of the best modern classic wagons, I think this is the first 850 T5-R wagon on classicregister.com. The car is equipped with the following options: air conditioning, electric windows, heated seats, electric roof and a detachable towbar. The car has had only 2 owners. At 209,564km the engine has been replaced by a Volvo dealer. The counter reading is now 468,500km. A super complete Volvo 850 T5-R that is ready for many kilometers.
Another spotted in NZ, this one was advertised in early 2019 - believed to be one of only around 20 left in the country (at least, according to the seller at the time). A high mileage example, but depending on the rust looks to be worth saving, with most parts intact. Seller at the time noted that the car was running. Hopefully someone saved it!

This original example of the Lotius Cortina was spotted for sale in New Zealand in February 2018 - looks to be an exceptionally kept car, with lots of mechanical refurbishment work completed. At the time it was advertised, the seller was asking $125,000 NZD. High, but not as high as we've seen some original examples fetch - remembering that the lotus cortina was such a great performing touring car, with many victories to its name, competing against the likes of the Cooper S.
Spotted in February 2019 - another rare XR8 Sprint from 1004 added to the register. This onw was asking $18,900 at the time. Notably the quickest Australian Ford in its day - quicker than the GT, having the same engine but a lot less weight. This example has a few modifications, including the body kit, and what looks to be modified front seat trim.

Lots of GTOs spotted recently, but never seen one this nice! Less than 1000km according to the original advertisement, and looks stock as a rock. Restored to its original colour (was painted silver at some point), and it has had some rust repairs according to the seller at the time it was advertised. A bit of other work also done - t, new front screen, brake booster reconditioned, new clutch, wiring sorted out, front seats recovered, new carpets etc.
Spotted on Yahoo auctions in February 2019, asking 550,000 JPY. Looks to be a complete car, but if the hood is anything to go by, there'd be a lot of rust throughout.. Not many of these GTOs around, nice to see one still together.
This Galant GTO shell was spotted on Yaho JP auctions in February 2019. Hopefully someone can put it back together, presuming the rust isnt too bad! Not many of these around, and only a few come up every couple of months in Japan - hugely desireable around the world now, and a nice alternative to the more common Datsun 240Zs.
If you have one, sign up and add your car to the register. Check out the others on the Mitsubishi Galant GTO GSR register.
