Alexandra, Stratford, December 2020               2011 Suburban


This is a brief note to say thank you for the process by which I recently bought the Ford F 150 from you. From our first introduction and initial look over the vehicle, to its history and the final sealing of the deal, I felt that you were open and transparent, as someone is when they have confidence and belief in what they are selling and have nothing to hide.
Working with Tom to collect the vehicle was a highlight, being met at the airport, bought coffee and then not only departing with our Pick Up but an armful of Avocados to boot was outstanding.
Now I have the vehicle home and have been using it and have had ample opportunity to familiarise myself with it, it has more than met my expectations.
Thanks again
Howard Perry, Whangarei, December 2020           2000 F150 4WD

I had been watching Bryce and his ad's for a while on Facebook and wondering how he was finding all these amazing looking American vehicles,  a 2000 GMC popped up on my Facebook feed that looked the goods and a decision was quickly made to sell our work truck a 2013 Isuzu D-max and put our name on the truck. As the truck was freighted here Bryce kept assuring us it was a honey and as close to new as a 20 year old truck could be. He called regularly and sent emails and pictures where he could. I picked it up 20/11/20 and everything Bryce said was true, I was genuinely surprised at how amazing the truck was. Not a squeak or a rattle anywhere and it drives more like a car than a big American pickup truck.  We are more than happy with our purchase and would have no hesitation in recommending Bryce at West Coast Classics to anyone who sees a vehicle they like that he has.


Glenn Kipling @ Brave Design, Auckland, November 2020     2000 GMC Sierra


Had the pleasure of dealing with Bryce at Westcoast Classics when purchasing a Shelby GT350.

Bryce kept us informed of each step of the process and sorted all the required permits and documentation for getting the car on the road.

Would highly recommend Bryce and the Westcoast Classics team to anyone.

Thanks heaps Bryce. Car is awesome.

Mike & Diane, Lower Hutt, October 2020



I have purchased 3 vehicles from Bryce now with the latest being a 2007 GT500 Mustang, nice car and Bryce always good to deal with ... highly recommend :)

Tom, Auckland, October 2020                   2007 Shelby GT500


Had a great experience dealing with Bryce with my recently purchased 1LE Camaro. 

Bryce went the xtra distance with Reg / WOF and left drive permit in my name. You wouldn’t get that at your local jap car dealer. Also supplied a xtra remote key and a fill tank of gas at his costs.

I personally recommend dealing with west Coast classic and will deal again in the future.

Kind regards

Tom, Christchurch, September 2020         2017 Camaro 1LE


Hi, couldn't find a car I was looking for. I rang Bryce about it. A week later he had photos & video's of some options. We discussed each of their merits. I have bought a car & are very happy with it. Cannot stop driving it. Thanks again Bryce.

Cheers, Jimmy 1953, Auckland, September 2020           2000 GMC Sierra


Buying this car has been a dream of mine for a long time, and it’s a fantastic feeling knowing that this is a true survivor and came exactly as advertised. I was a little bit nervous buying such an old car and having to learn how to drive a left-hand vehicle, but Bryce was so friendly, helpful and had such a wealth of knowledge he made the whole experience such a breeze! Thanks, Bryce! 

Chervelle, Auckland, September 2020                 196 Chevelle Malibu 


I had heard great things about Bryce from West Coast Classics but it’s not until you actually deal with someone that you can learn the true story. He was patient, easy to deal with and generous with the little extras at the end, all in all a great buying experience. The car was exactly as described and is a true survivor car, we love it. I would deal with West Coast Classics again in a heartbeat. Thanks heaps Bryce.

Graham, Northland, September 2020                   1965 Rambler Ambassador 



Purchased a 65 El Camino from Bryce which was very straight forward transaction. Bryce was good to communicate with and the sale went well. My only worry was that he wanted the vehicle for himself at one stage. Bryce is highly regarded and well known in the classic car circuit. Pleased with the vehicle and I recommend Westcoast Classic Cars.

Wayne, Tauranga, August 2020              1965 El Camino


Exceptional service, zero pressure, very informative. Bryce went over and above the call of duty when we went to look at our 64 Impala. Right up until he handed us the keys his communication was excellent ensuring the vehicle was going to fit our needs. Without hesitation I recommended Bryce and the team at Westcoast Classics – we will be back for certain.

Heather, Hamilton, August 2020                 1964 Impala SS



I’ve just purchased and received my GMC 86 truck from Bryce at Westcoast Classics. From the moment we spoke I knew I was in safe hands....Bryce made the whole process very easy, from compliance to shipping truck from USA to my doorstep to NZ. Bryce kept me update where truck was all the times and if I needed to contact him, he was available all the times. I’d highly recommend dealing with Bryce for importing your dream vehicle. Once I got my truck it was more than I had expected..Great job Bryce 

Paul, Christchurch,  August 2020              1986 Chevrolet C10


I had been thinking about getting my hands on a 1952 Ford F1 for a while, but being relatively new to this experience did not know the best way to go about it let alone finding one in the US and get it home.  Some said import it yourself, its easy, follow your nose and save money, but this option came at great risk and one which I felt was not the smartest idea.   I had been recommended to Bryce by a few classic car enthusiast friends who said Bryce from Westcoast Classics knows his stuff, is straight up and will tell you how it is.   Bryce said to me ‘if you want the right truck you’ll need to be patient, it will turn up’.    He was not wrong and he did not just grab the first one that came along, boy it was worth the wait, what he found for me was more than I had expected, perfect original, no rust 1952 Ford F1 in very good running order, vary rare in todays market.  So thumbs up Bryce, this could be addictive.

Clint, Whangarei, July 2020                     1952 Ford F-1 Pickup


Last year I purchase a 67 Pontiac firebird convertible from Bryce and his team at Westcoastclassic. Bryce did such an awesome job that he was my first and only point of call when I decided to look into buying an American truck. 

Well all I can say is Bryce and the team at Westcoastclassic, you guys are bloody legends.
You delivered a mint 2000 GMC Sierra 1500 and it was everything you had promised, you went above and beyond as you did last year as well. 
If your ever looking at purchasing and American classic / muscle car be sure to give Westcoast Classics a call first, you won’t be disappointed. 
Thanks Westcoast Classics.
Dion Steiner, Te Puke, July 2020               2000 GMC Sierra

Thanks again for yet another Great vehicle.

This is the second time I have bought a vehicle from Bryce and once again he went out of his way and meet me at the airport.  If you are looking buying a toy Westcoast Classics is the only place I would buy from, both vehicles have been more then I was expecting.

He even sent me a text to say he had to take the truck to the Auto electrician as a dash light came on, all fixed. Most car dealers would not inform you about the fault.

If you are looking for a American car or truck, you need to ring Westcoast Classics. Honest and Great service !!!!!! 10/10 once again.

'This says it all'

Del & Rex, June 2020, repeat customers from Gisborne            1998 Ford F150


This is the second truck that we have bought through Bryce and his team at Westcoast Classics.  The first was a Chevy Silverado Stepside, which was a great truck and I should never have sold it.

So when I started looking for another truck, my wife insisted I get it through Bryce because she said “with Bryce you know what you are getting”. And just like the first time Bryce provided heaps of and some videos of the truck and was more than happy to discuss the truck and point out anything he thought would need to be looked at.  Nothing was hidden.

Bryce kept us up-to date through the whole process from purchase to compliance and finally delivery to us in the South Island.

I have had the truck for just over a week now and are more than happy with it, exactly as Bryce described it.

If you are looking at getting an American car or truck, you need to contact Bryce and his team at Westcoast Classic's for good honest vehicles and great service.


Robbie & Beryl Brannen, repeat customers from Kaiapoi, May 2020           1992 F150 Flareside 


I just wanted to say thanks for the help in finding our cool wee classic that we are now enjoying using as much as we can.

Our ’67 Firebird was exactly as described, something not easy to do when describing an original car that is pretty much still living in the same clothes as it put on 53 years ago. How you find such great examples is beyond me and your network that you have built over the years is obviously one that most other brokers and dealers in this product would struggle to compete with.

Would we do this again? We sure would with Bryce and the West Coast Classic team as we have a trusting relationship now, not only by our own experiences but also friends whom have enjoyed the West Coast experience as well.

Thank you for also taking control of the on road process as well and doing it in an efficient and cost effective manner as well.

In summarising, I cannot say enough about your operation and as a business owner and manager myself, I know that iwhat makes a business successful is the people behind it.

Kind Regards

Darrell, Blenhiem, May 2020            1967 Pontiac Firebird


Yet again Bryce has delivered another Westcoastclassics gem. You brought on the magic and delivered a bloody gem & total trouble free purchase I will be back I’m sure. I don’t hesitate in recommending the services of Bryce. Cheers mate.

Richard, Taupo, March 2020          1980 GMC Sierra

6x Westcoast Classics Customer !!!


Happy to finally have my dream car...wow! what a car!. Bryce was helpful every step of the way including my impatience to get the dodge ASAP. I have been able to contact Bryce with any issues and he has remained available for all assistance well after purchase. I would definitely recommend Westcoast Classics if you're looking for classic/american vehicles. All compliance and documentation was taken care of by Bryce. Reasonable cost. Cheers Bryce...first port of call if I decide to update lol.
Toni, Dunedin, March 2020          2010 Challenger R/T Classic

Just a quick check in and a thanks for my recent purchase from Westcoast Classics.
Your ability to understand and identify my preferences and budget made this a very easy and painless transaction which you also backed up with great communication and service, everything went to plan smoothly.

Karl, Auckland, February 2020          1972 Camaro RS


I was interested in purchasing a Dodge Challenger so I asked multiple people about how I should do this and most people said give Bryce a call. 

Bryce made it super easy and did all the hard work from finding me the car, compliance and getting it on the road. Communication was great also with regular updates along the way. 

Would highly recommend Bryce to anyone looking at buying a car from the states.

Dan, Dunedin, February 2020               2016 Challenger R/T Classic


We purchased the Challenger from photos and a description from Bryce, he let us know the condition of the car prior to purchase. He communicated to us the whole way through every time there would be any delays in transit and during the compliance process. When we saw the car it was beyond our expectations and we are very happy. We would recomend Bryce to anyone and would happily buy from him again.

Peter & Allison, Hawera, February 2020                      2015 Challenger R/T Classic



I picked up my vehicle from Westcoast Classics in Tauranga today and could not be happier with it.

Purchasing a vehicle just from photos off the net could be a bit daunting, but Westcoast Classics go to great efforts to give you as much info as they can, and help you make an informed decision on your purchase. You can be confident that what you are seeing is what you are getting. From purchase, to taking delivery I was kept regularly updated as to what was happening, and when we did have a few hurdles to getting the vehicle complied, and ready for delivery, Bryce went to a great deal of trouble to make sure it was sorted to my satisfaction. I told them I needed a car that could be ready for a 7 hour road trip, and that is exactly what I got.

I would recommend Westcoast Classics to anybody looking for a quality, usable and unique classic vehicle.
Peter Zotov, Kerikeri, February 2020           1978 Chevy C10 

Just wanted to thank you again for finding and importing my 2018 1LE Camaro. I still cannot believe how incredibly easy you made the whole process for me. I can see why so many people return to use you again. Definitely highly recommend Bryce and Westcoast Classic Imports.Hopefully we can do another deal together one day.

Steven Currie, January 2020                2018 Camaro 1LE



To find your dream vehicle can be a mission, I spent some time looking for a suitable Truck in NZ with no luck but the import process just seemed to be a major hassle, full of risks. I knew of a number of friends that had used Bryce and West Coast Classics in the past, so I thought I would give them a call. Within a short period of time Bryce found just what I was looking for and right from the first phone call through to getting my truck the communication was fantastic, I was kept informed and consulted the whole way through. Bryce was clear on what to expect throughout the process and he delivered. We love the truck and the service we received, its a big part of whole experience. An awesome experience, Thank you Bryce.  

Gordon, Pukekohe, January 2020        1965 Chevrolet C10


I couldn’t be happier. My classic 59 Edsel is so much more than I expected and dealing with Bryce was a smooth and friendly experience along with the before and after service. I totally recommend dealing with Bryce and West Coast Classics to anyone looking to buy an imported classic.

Kathy Newman, Mangawhai Heads, December 2019         1959 Edsel Ranger



I recently purchased F150 truck off Bryce at West Coast Classics....everything Bryce told me over the phone about the truck was as he said it was when i turned up to view it.

Couldn't be happier, loved the drive home and would happily recommend Bryce from West Coast Classics to anyone who asked...

Thanks again Bryce 

Gavin, Kumeu, December 2019            1998 Ford F150 XLT


Purchased a 67 Camaro RS from Bryce this week. It was a pleasure to do business with him. Very helpful in all aspects of the transaction. No BS. Have already recommended him to fellow classic owners as the go to man for the job.

Peter, Whitianga, December 2019           1967 Camaro RS 



I wanted something a bit different, I did a fair bit of research on how to purchase my dream car & everyone I spoke to said talk with Bryce Williams from West Coast Classic Imports. 

Bryce made the whole process extremely easy, sourced a fantastic car in California & imported it to NZ. I was kept up to date throughout the whole process with regular photos & phone calls. 

If you’re looking to import your dream car then Bryce is the man for the job, fantastic service & a great guy to deal with. 

I would recommend West Coast Classic Imports to anyone.


Brendon, Nelson, October 2019            2012 Challenger SRT 392 Yellow Jacket



We have purchased four vehicles from Westcoast Classics, the first a 2013 Mustang which Bryce procured for us to order, the other vehicles were from his stock. All the vehicles were as described and in good (sound ) condition. We highly recommend Bryce and his team for ANY US imports. No surprises, good quality pre-checked vehicles for our market. Why take a chance on purchasing a lemon, when Westcoast can procure and supply quality and NZ suitable vehicles.

Peter, Foxton, September 2019           1997 F150 Flareside


We recently bought a 2019 Chev Camaro off Bryce at Westcoast Classic Imports Ltd. Right from the start of the journey to finding the right car Bryce was extremely helpful and accomodating. Always on hand to answer questions. The purchase of the vehicle was easy, stress and complication free. The car is everything we hoped it would be! We would recommend Bryce and his outstanding business to anyone in the market for their ‘special ride’.

Kirsten & Dave Geraghty, New Plymouth, September 2019        2019 Camaro 2SS



I purchased a 2016 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack from Bryce sight unseen on the recommendation of my good mate from Auckland who had purchased a Ford Truck from Bryce.

The vehicle was exactly as described by Bryce and totally unmarked.The hand over went as arranged and even had a full tank of fuel. It is great to be able to deal with honest straight up people when you live miles away.

I would purchase another vehicle off Bryce & his Team in a second if my bank account would allow!

If you are thinking of purchasing an American Collectable you should go no further than contacting Westcoast Classics & Bryce.

Thanks again Bryce,I can't wipe the smile off my face when I start that Challenger up!!


Chris, Blenheim, September 2019           2016 Challenger 392 Scat Pack Shaker




Bryce and his team at Westcoast Classic Imports Ltd helped us to make a 20 year dream a reality with an amazing car that they sourced and imported from the USA.

We were supplied with lots of photos and some videos to make our decision, but when we saw it in person it was even better than it looked in the photos.

We would recommend Bryce and his team to anyone wanting to purchase a vehicle, and we would use his services again without hesitation.

Thank you Westcoast Classic Imports Ltd.

Thank you Bryce!

D & J Ruthe, Horowhenua, September 2019


I had been wanting a Camaro for a few years and the time was finally right. West Coast Classic Imports was recommended to me. I called Bryce and he was more than helpful to discuss what I was after. I found Bryce to be very down to earth, one of the good guys. After several options and numerous photos sent to me I decided on my new Camaro. Then I got the email, “Gassed up, Plated up, Ready to Roll”.

I would not hesitate to recommend him to other buyers.

John, Auckland, September 2019          2019 Camaro 2SS



Customer feedback / testimonial:

A mate told me to have a look at Bryce’s website as I was looking for a Chevy C10 Truck. I made contact with Bryce re him helping me bring in a truck I had found in Texas, after him asking me a couple of questions as to what and where, Bryce was straight up and said he could not assist. A couple months past and Bryce put up a similar truck to what I was after, on his Facebook page, so I made contact again and while chatting about that one he mentioned he had one of his own for 4 or so years and was a great truck, I asked for a photo of it! and to cut a long story short,  I bought his shop truck and was stoked! Right from the start he was straight up, no fluff, just good honest salesmanship! 

I have no hesitation in recommending Bryce and have already done so. 

I look forward to future dealings with Bryce and his team....


Aaron, Hastings, August 2019             1984 Chevy C10 Stepside 


This is an easy statement to make:  If you want HONESTY then ring Bryce.

Being a female in a “mans” world of buying cars can be daunting, especially buying one sight unseen, let alone from another country.

I contacted Bryce, explained what I wanted and he came back with 5 possibilities, with costs for each.  He talked me through the whole process, and answered all of my questions.

With my first choice, Bryce came back to me and openly said he wasn’t happy, there was suspicion of accident damage.  This speaks volumes, Bryce is 100% focused on bringing any buyer their dream car as near to perfect that it can be.

My second choice ticked all the boxes for me and all the boxes for Bryce and his team.  From there, it was open communication, regular updates,  photos of the car, where it was at and approximate time frames for delivery.

On the day of pick up, (Bryce offered to pick me up from the airport if needed) I was handed the keys to this pristine car.  He’s taken the time to show me all the ins and outs of the car before I set off.

I came away feeling truly valued as a customer, and have absolutely no regrets picking up the phone to call Bryce 3 months ago.  Thank you Bryce for making my 11 year dream become reality.  I have no hesitation is recommending Bryce and his team at Westcoast Classics to anyone who is looking to purchase a vehicle.

Kim, Pahiatua, August 2019           2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 (12,000 miles!)


I recently purchased a 69 Dodge Dart through Bryce at Westcoast Classics.
The fact that I am a repeat customer is in itself an endorsement of the experience and service i have received in the past.
From sourcing and inspection in the US, the volumes of photos supplied, excellent communication along the way, and putting the vehicle through compliance in NZ, it is all part of the service. 
I would have no hesitation in recommending Bryce and the team at Westcoast classics to anyone in the market for a vehicle.
Alan, Auckland, August 2019              1969 Dodge Dart 


Rang Westcoast Classics talked to Bryce about a CJ5 Jeep.  No worries - he found 3 and we picked one with his input. The whole process was painless. He kept me informed all the way with photos, emails, phone calls.  Boy it's been a great experience.  I would recommend you to ring him.

Stu, Kerikeri, August 2019                 1979 Jeep CJ5


Bryce sold us a 1968 Falacon Futura club coupe .He is definitely a honest dealer . The car was exactly as he had told it was . Was amazing with all his help and putting the car through the certification process which made the whole deal so easy .We will be doing futre deals for sure A++.

Darrin, Kaiapoi, July 2019           1968 Falcon Futura


Two years ago I was looking at the Westcoast Classics site and I saw my dream car only to find that when I contacted him it had been removed and was now not for sale. I had spent a lot of time going through the site and particularly the testimonials and was impressed with what I read.
About six weeks ago I contacted Bryce to discuss the opportunity of bringing in a Camaro for me to find that he still had the Blue 68 from two years ago. One thing lead to another and I managed to purchase it from him.
Honesty is the one word that springs to mind when dealing with Bryce.
I am so impressed with Bryce and the service I received and I would highly recommend that if you are wanting an American Classic go no further than Westcoast Classics.
I am now the proud owner of an original 1968 Camaro.
Ray, Whangarei, June 2019      1968 Camaro

Hi Bryce,

What a hassle free deal. In the loop the whole way. Exactly as photos and description. You're an old fashion Man [ Say it Do it ].


Ron , Kerikeri, May 2019                    1970 Buick Riviera 455


We have recently purchased “an old girl” off West Coast Classics.  We found Bryce kept us very informed by phone and email of its progress throughout the certification process.
The car arrived to us as shown in the many photos supplied and described by Bryce.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Bryce and Lisa from West Coast Classics to anyone looking at purchasing.
Hori & Leanne Hollever, Timaru, May 2019                 1956 Chevy 210

Bryce sourced me a mint 2002 Tahoe recently. Very nice truck and couldn't be happier with the service. Tons of photos, full communication and progress reports, all the original manual, keys etc. Would highly recommend Bryce's service.

Andrew, Papakura, May 2019                   2002 Chevy Tahoe LT


We’ve been very happy with all three purchases that Bryce and the team at West Coast Classic Imports have provided for us, and have been happy to recommend them to anyone who asks.

Purchasing to order has been a great experience with Bryce. Once you settle on a few basics, the options, advice, vehicle information and photos supplied help you to narrow down the choices. John in the USA ensures the cars are legit before you commit and pay a small deposit, then wait for your dream car to arrive.

Everything this end is sorted and included so there are no surprise extras once it arrives, and all you need to do is get it home and enjoy it.

This Challenger has been a long time coming, so thanks for making it possible.

Mark & Janice, Rangiora, April 2019            2017 Challenger R/T 392 Scat Pack (plus a 2013 Camaro 2SS & a 2015 Camaro 2SS!)


 We are really happy with the car we bought from Bryce. He has a reputation for Buying good quality original old cars, and a good quality original car is exactly what we got. The photos and video that he provides to you pre purchase are very accurate, they hide nothing.
My car required a brake hose and ball joint in order to comply, which was amazing. 
We are having heaps of fun in the car, and it certainly get lots of attention.
If you want a good clean original old car, definitely have a chat to Bryce.

Jackie, Papamoa, April 2019                      1971 Dodge Dart Swinger


About three years back we spotted a 1967 Dodge Polara on Westcoast Classics Facebook Page.  We contacted Bryce about the Polara, after talking to him, receiving many photos, videos and information about the car we felt confident in purchasing the Polara.  We were kept well informed through out the whole process and the vehicle arrived in the condition that it was described to us. Hence, we had no nasty surprises when it arrived.  It has proven to be a really great vehicle and we love it.   So, we had absolutely no hesitation in purchasing the Dodge Ram when we saw it on Westcoast Classics Facebook Page.  Again, we received the same level of service and we would certainly recommend Westcoast Classics to anyone considering purchasing an American Classic from them.
Thanks Bryce for your honesty and integrity we appreciate it.

Lynlea & Dean, Dunedin, April 2019                      1986 Dodge D150 Ram


Reading through the testimonials Bryce has received to date, there is very little to say that has not already been said. Its all that and some, and, there isn't too much else to be added other than that of my own experience of feeling valued and important as a customer of Westcoast Classic Imports. Bryce is a man that listens with his ears which means you can buy with confidence. Many thanks Bryce.
Terry, Auckland, March 2019           1963 Mercury Meteor S-33


Denise and I looked at a few vehicles before seeing the Trade Me ad for a 68 Camaro. We found the car to be better than described, and have been more than happy with our purchase and Bryce's services.

Thanks again.

Andrew Moore, Hamilton, March 2019                 1968 Camaro


I was picked up from the airport and the 98 F150 was as good as Bryce had described over the phone and in the photos he had sent. While the tires on the truck had passed Compliance and a WOF Bryce replaced them as they were slightly perished. I enjoyed my drive back down to the West Coast in it and I’ll be back again when I want my next American import.

Garrick Edge, Westport, February 2019       1998 F150 Lariat


In 2018 we decided to get our dream car, a Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Shaker. I had been recommended to give Bryce a call and I am so glad I did. I told Bryce what I was keen on and he made it happen – he had a wealth of knowledge about options we should be looking for in our car. One week later Bryce came back with 3 cars to choose from and we were underway. Bryce kept us informed every step of the way…….delivery to California, shipping, arrival in NZ and then the compliance and registration process. Even though we had to wait a couple of months to get the LHD permit, Bryce kept us in the loop and was in regular contact. On the day we picked it up, Bryce had the car shining like a gem…..and took me through all the car features and functions. On reflection I don’t know how you could make this process of importing an American muscle car any better than using Bryce and Westcoast Classics. I’m thrilled with the car and will certainly be back to see Bryce in the future.

 Andrew Berry, Auckland, January 2019       2017 Challenger R/T 392



If your looking to find your dream car out of America then Bryce is your man. Very helpful and informative all the way through the proces.
Highley recommend Bryce from Westcoast Classic Importers.
