Dear Sir/Madam,

 

I am contacting you to advise of a large collection of early VW’s and a few early Porches which we are auctioning on July 12th 2009 on behalf of the estate of the late Francis Baptist.

 

Also for auction on the day will be a large number of parts including 16 mainly pre 1960 engines, a large selection of “new old stock” and a large number or various steel and alloy wheels and tyres for early Volkswagens.

 

We are currently putting the catalogue together and are yet to photograph the vehicles and parts however I have attached an early list of the vehicles on offer.

 

The auction is taking place at Turners Auctions in Penrose, Auckland , New Zealand and will be streamed live over the internet via Turner Live.

Potential bidders can register on our website and fill in their credit car details to bid online in real time with live pictures and sound.

 

Many of the vehicles are in exceptional condition having been stored indoors since 2006.

Just want to comment on the accuracy of one of the listings. There is no such thing as a 1982 Tristar. Most especially not a 4x4 as production Syncros did not get out until 1985. Unless it has been converted, the 2100cc motor is also out of place.

Since they Vanagon as "Vanigan" perhaps they are just full of marketing hype.

Change the 8 to a 9 in 1982 and it all becomes pretty clear .........

Hey Ben, phonetically sounding, "Vanigan" is how a Kiwi would pronounce Vanagon.Now we Aussie's would say "Vaanagan" Thats a huge leap of faith and  assumption Ken to replace 8 with 9. Big price differential there I'm sure.
