|1970 Holden Monaro GTS|
|Car Model:||Monaro GTS|
|Discription:||3 owner Holden Monaro that is one of a kind. This Beauty has been well looked after. Every piece of history has been kept over the years, even the original purchase bill.First Owner bought the car in 1970 and owned it for 3years where the second owner owned this beauty for over 42 years. Yes, this is not the original 308 engine , however the second owner got permission in the year 1975 from General Motors in Australia to purchase the stronger 350 engine which the newer models came out with, when the Monaro’s were no longer manufactured in South Africa. Back in the day Jimmy’s Trimmers fitted all the cars with sunroofs and Vinyl tops, which they have installed to the Monaro. This vehicle is unrestored, however over the years there was small touch ups done to keep it always looking mint. The Interior is still original and well looked after. These cars have become very hard to come by, especially in this condition and with this history.|

The interior is absolutely mint and original. One can only say WOW when you sit in this car.

1971 Land Rover 109 – Deziree
This vehicle, in its pre-makeover form, was the hero vehicle in the Hollywood film “The Journey is the Destination”, which was filmed in South Africa and that was released in Canada in September 2016. It is based on the life of photojournalist Dan Eldon (www.daneldon.org), and the Land Rover called Deziree that he used for relief work in Africa.
Here’s a background video on Eldon: https://youtu.be/t0BZGZS6YMw
Note: the 109 we have is not the original one Eldon used on his travels, but the one used in the film about his life. The original apparently still lives in Kenya, but has been completely changed and modified since 1993.
Some direct info from the Restorer and Owner:
It has the R6 2,6-litre straight-six engine, and a four-speed ‘box (we tested the transfer case and that worked fine too). The engine is (now) one of its best qualities… really runs sweetly. We haven’t done any major overhauls or engine rebuilds, just a major service and replaced the obvious things such as coil and plugs. The carb is not original – the mechanic pointed out it’s a Toyota 1.3 12V carburetor. But it works like a charm.
The vehicle is not a chassis-up restoration. Instead we aimed to create a modern-classic version of the Land Rover as used in the film. So the Kenyan number plates are still there, as are some of the props and unique finishes that Eldon had used (like the colorful map of Africa on the doors). Everything has just been updated with a new lick of paint, but we did not mend all the small dings and dents – in keeping with the movie character.
For the film the production company had cut a crude hole in the Safari roof, through which the actor playing Dan Eldon took some photos. We fixed this crude hole thanks to Onca 4×4, who custom made an aluminum hatch that seals properly, and also has latches and rubber stoppers to you can drive with the hatch open without damaging anything.
The front spotlight, as per the original Deziree, will be a period Hella light – sourced the light that will still be fitted.
It has brand new Firestone Jeep Service tyres (that have done about 5km), brand new Old Man Emu shocks and steering damper (also about 5km), and the front seat has been completely refurbished.
Overall she is in pretty good shape, but it certainly is not a concours type restoration. Instead we aimed to give the old girl a more modern makeover but sticking to the character she played in the movie. Like if Dan Eldon still lived today, this would be what Deziree would be like.
1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda
Mileage: 27486 miles
Paperwork up to date.
On offer is the Uber Cool Mercesdes-Benz roadster / Coupé that was introduced in 1963 at the Geneva Motor Show. To say that these were an instant hit is an understatement; Sportscar performance and Merc comfort with the solid build quality, this 3 pointed star has been sought ever since. Production lasted until 1971 with a total of 48 912 units produced of which 19 440 units were sold in the States. Towards the end of the production of the W113 it evolved to be more of a grand tourer then a sports car and most units were produced with Automatic gearboxes rather than the 4 speed manual which means the manual transmissions are very sought after these days. All models were equipped with inline six cylinder engines with multi-port fuel injection of which 3 engine sizes were available ranging from 2308cc to 2496cc all the way up to the iconic 2778cc. To save weight, Mercedes manufactured the bonnet, boot lid and door skins from aluminum. With the wide stance, short body, good suspension and powerful brakes the W113 had superb handling for the time.
The Q car is in showroom condition with less than 30 000 miles on the clock. Originally from Rupert Murdock’s family collection where it was bought new and driven sparingly for 20yrs racking up various show wins, this vehicle was then imported into SA in the early 80’s. A refresh of the body and interior was undertaken some years back so this Pagoda is looking rather shiny indeed. The car comes with a soft and hard top, the very rare option at the time was the 3rd cali seat in the rear, plus the sought after is the 4 speed manual. This a clean honest car which would add value to any Mercedes collection with the best part being that it’s still a beauty to drive!
We are in possession of the original steering wheel and hubcaps and history files.
