Considering buying a classic? Check out Turners Cars’ massive line-up!

15 November, 2016

The National Classic Car Online Auction at Turners Cars is gathering steam with some truly amazing cars up for sale.  The online auction will run from Friday, November 25 and will close on Monday, December 5. No matter what level of collector or enthusiast you are, there’s sure to be something that’ll tickle your fancy — and cars will be on show at the 11 Turners Cars branches throughout New Zealand, so you can get along to your nearest branch, or organize a road trip to check them all out, and have a  look and see if you find the car of your dreams.  

If Fords are your thing, then there are plenty here, from the 1929 Ford Pickup Model A Roadster to the 1974 Ford Capri, with a couple of great Mustangs and a 1964 Ford Thunderbird in-between. There’s also three rare Fords that will turn anyone’s head; a 1970 Ford Shelby Cobra Mustang GT500, a 1974 Ford XB GT Falcon, and the extremely rare 1970 Ford Falcon XW GT-HO Phase II that was one of only 14 that raced at Bathurst in 1970, driven by the legendary Bob Holden.

If you daydream about the era of drive-in movies, then perhaps the 1959 Cadillac De Ville, the 1956 Dodge Royal Lancer, or the 1956 Chevrolet Belair will pique your interest. Going back even further towards the birth of the modern motor car, we have a Dodge Senior 6 from 1929 and fully restored 1928 Willys-Knight.

For the project-minded the 1965 Mk2 Jaguar could be the car for you, or for those after the thrill of the chase perhaps the Oldsmobile 88 Delta CK with Sheriff’s livery will do the trick. Or for the Japanese-minded there’s a 1980 Suzuki CXG Coupe that’s only done 142kms, as well as a potentially one-of-a-kind 1974 Toyota Crown Coupe  in incredible condition, giving a window into the luxury sports models of the early ’70s.  

There’s plenty more; BMWs and Mercs from the ’80s, three beautiful MGs … the list goes on! All the cars are on Turners Cars’ website, with lots of information and plenty of pictures.  If you have any enquiries, the consultant for each vehicle is specific in each listing.

And remember,  if you’re thinking about selling your car, then this is the time and place to do it. Entries will be accepted until November 18, 2016. 

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.

A passion for classics and customs

In the highly competitive field of New Zealand classic and custom restorations, reputations are won or lost on the ability to maintain consistently high standards of workmanship. A company managing to achieve this is D A Panel beating Ltd, of Rangiora near Christchurch. Is your classic or custom car restoration stalled, or in need of a refresh, or perhaps you are looking for experts to rebuild that recent import project out of Europe or the ‘States?
