It's been a while, but finally we've spotted another LS for sale to add to the register! This one was listed on Ebay Australia in November 2019. Looks to be very original, other than the wheels. Must have lost its 8.4 inch disc brakes at some point as it's sitting on 10 inch wheels.
This Humber Super Snipe Mark IV Limousine was manufactured and assembled in the UK in 1953. This is unusual for an Australian Humber as they were usually exported to Australia in a completely knocked down form for assembly at the Rootes factory at Fishermans Bend in Melbourne.
It is believed that this particular car was one of six Humber Super Snipe Limousines that were delivered to Brisbane in January 1954 for the Queens Coronation Tour of Australia. Government archives indicate that these cars were on loan from the manufacturer for the duration of the tour.
This early example of the C140 was imported to Poland from Switzerland in 2019. As an early C140, it has the 500SEC badgingf (as compared to the later S500 and CL 500 badging). Looks to be in reasonable condition with reasonable mileage for its age. Service records shown in the image look fairly comprehensive. A nice modern classic benz.
This is one of 374 units built by Rolls-Royce between 2000 and 2002, and is the very last of the hand built Rolls-Royce Corniche vehicles. At the time this car was built, it's very difficult to find anything that rivalled the opulent luxury and style
This particular car is located in Las Vegas, Nevada, and has very low mileage as you would expect of such a unique and collectible vehicle. The car retains its original and immaculate Sunrise Pearl paint matched with perfect Beige Connolly leather trim. It has been regularly serviced, and is in immaculate mechanical condition ready for the next Rolls Royce enthusiast to enjoy.
With the low production numbers, attention to detail and unrivalled (timeless) style, the Corniche of this era was always an instant classic. Prices are starting to reflect the special status of this Rolls, and if you have the means for this sort of vehicle as a collector, it should be on your list.
Spotted this one, and many others, on the polish site allegro.pl. The 140 series Mercedes seems to be particularly popular with Polish people, and even where I live in Australia, when I bought my C140 in Sydney - the seller was Polish! Anyway, having a look at this one it has reaosnably average mileage for its age and type, and looks overall in good condition.
The seller at the time noted the following comments about this car, which is a rare 420 model (most are 500/600)..
It's not actually a 65 Daytona, but a partial clone with teh vinyl roof, and a close colour to the Bordeaux Red. Looks to have a 64 Daytona trunk lid, and nicely finisged custim trim, this example was advertised on Ebay USA asking $24,000 USD in Oct 2019. In the original advertisement the seller noted the following:
It was obviously a very popular colour in NZ - of the few GTs we have on the register here, the Brown / Bronze GTs are the most numerous. This one looks to be in great condition, and was asking $10K NZD in Oct 2019 on trademe.co.nz. The owner noted at the time that the carpet is original, and in great condition. Seats look to have an aftermarket re-trim in similar to original colours..
Found on Ebay USA in October 2019 with a classified ad price of $13,500 USD. One of only 6,622 cars built, these are becoming quite collectible and were sold in quite a number of markets - tche main of course being the USA where the styling was clearly aimed. The seller didn't give any details about this particular car but it looks great - hope it found a good home. Check out the other Bertone Volvos on the register below.
Hard to find these early 1275 GTS - this one with its original 10 inch wheels (as appeared on early GTs before they went to the 12 inch). Looks to be relatively original from a distance, but has had some inyteresting vinyl work done to the foor and quite a bit of engine work. Not much needed to bring it back to factory (which is what I'd want to do).
This one was advertised on Ebay UK in Oct 2019 with a classified price of 8,950 GBP. The seller noted the following comments at the time it was advertised:
