Southward Car Museum, Paraparaumu
A variety of other marques make up the collection. Here is a snap shot:
A most interesting and well chosen selection of one-off marques are also represented within the Savage collection. As is Savage’s method of choice — each car was bought on its merits and condition.
1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Auto
This superb 280SL is one of three collected and enjoyed over the years by Roy and his wife. Imported from the United Kingdom in 1976, it has had a mere three prior owners and was purchased by Roy Savage in 1977. It has an odometer reading of approximately 73,200 miles and presents in very good order. It is finished in red with black interior.
1965 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 with hard top
Car history coming soon.
1983 BMW 635 CSi Coupe with M spec badges
This well presented BMW 635 CSi was imported from the United Kingdom and its first ownership in New Zealand was recorded in 1988. Roy Savage purchased the car in 2000 from Mr. David Scott of Wellington. This stunning car comes with its owner’s manual, service books, records and original sales brochure. The sale will include its original mag wheels and a spare new cylinder head.
1996 Bentley Azure
Accompanied with its service history this car was originally delivered to Singapore to Gilltraps. Due to the financial crisis of the era many cancellations ensued and Bentleys and Rolls-Royces needed to be re-assigned to buyers. Roy Savage advantageously acquired this fine car by arranging for its delivery from Gilltraps to Wellington. It has an odometer reading of approximately 23,000kms and has been serviced by Armstrongs Prestige of Wellington.
1965 Wolseley 6/110 3-litre Sedan Mark 11
This stunningly original example is pure joy for a Wolseley enthusiast or someone simply enchanted with 1960s British style. It has around 60,000 miles on the clock.
1955 Austin A30
Fully restored and pretty as a picture, this Austin A30 has 75,000 miles approx. odometer reading and is now in only its 3rd ownership within the Savage Collection.
1930 Ford Model A
A delightful and well running car, this car was Roy Savage’s advance into the car collecting life. It is the only American car within the collection. The car was also bought from Bill Pyne and Roy is the car’s 3rd owner. Finished in a Primrose yellow, it is a strikingly proud motor car.
1977 Land Rover SWB Hard top
This quite rare SWB version in cream paintwork has had only two previous owners. It sports additional features from standard being overdrive; padded seats in the rear; a heater; freewheeling hubs and a clock. It is a New Zealand delivered vehicle.
