NZ Classic Car #342 (June) on sale now

21 May, 2019




The Falcon GT dominates the cover of the latest issue of New Zealand Classic Car (#342) much as its GTHO siblings did at Bathurst from 67-72.


Also in this issue a beautiful Bora, a pristine Porsche 356 Type 1 that’s so much part of the family it lives in the lounge, and a Plymouth Road Runner that occasionally gets to flex its muscles at the drags.


Michael Clark moves onto the coffee in the second part of his Lunch With Graeme Lawrence, we look at a stately and stylish 41 Caddy , with an engine that literally pushed tanks around in the Second World War and, in our technical feature, we look at how to avoid heartache when prepping your car for painting.

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?
