It has been an amazing experience buying from Bryce at West Coast Classics, He kept me up to date every step of the way. Car was even better then I had expected. Best service I've experience from a dealer. Made buying my first Classic car smooth and easy.

It has been a pleasure and an incredible journey to end up with my dream Mustang I have purchased off Bryce & Lisa Williams. Only too happy  to provide this testimonial for  Bryce and Lisa of West Coast Classic Imports.

Bryce had been recommended to by me by 2 friends in my neighbourhood who had purchased vehicles from him. They are extremely pleased with their vehicles. I called him when I found he had a mint 2008 Roush Mustang Stage 3  for sale. After a lengthy chat Bryce did a facetime call and drive of the car as I’m in Auckland unable to travel the deal was sealed. Bryce has been brilliant no BS straight up guy who is so passionate about these American cars. He arranged the shipping up to Auckland and the transport company he uses are superb as well absolutely couldn’t fault them either. He has answered all my questions promptly  and really has gone to extra 2 miles for this purchase. I have dreamed of owning a Mustang since I was 2 and Bryce has helped me achieve my dream. If you are looking for a classic or an American muscle car call Bryce he will find your car for you and it will be an easy ,no hassles straight forward experience with the end result of a quality motor vehicle.

I'd been searching for the classic car of my dreams (a ‘65 Falcon Futura) for 4 years. It was an incredibly frustrating search because there were very few ‘survivors’ left 'alive and well' and virtually none of them ever came up for sale. So when Bryce advertised 'the very car' I was after I pushed the ‘purchase button’ without hesitation - safe in the knowledge that it would be every bit as good as he said it was. In fact, its way better! Not only did Bryce seamlessly take care of all the complexities associated with importing ‘a classic’ these days – he did it expediently. No small challenge in the midst of the very difficult shipping environment that exists today. Thankfully, I also had the good sense to ask Bryce to take care of compliance, registration, WOF etc  - and he and his team did a great job in making sure the car was ready for ‘cruising’ in quick smart time. Bryce's service and communication throughout the whole process has been 2nd to none and I cannot recommend him and his team highly enough. Thanks heaps Bryce, I’m stoked with the old girl!

I had been interested in getting a Dodge for some time and had checked out the a local dealer that imports a lot of American Cars but they were hard to deal with (putting it nicely). I had been following Westcoast Classics on Facebook and hearing a lot of positive comments, so I messaged Bryce about what I was after and had a very quick reply that he could definitely help in finding what I was after. In a very short time he had an option on a Dodge for me that was exactly what I was after, and within no time the deal was done. Throughout the whole shipping process Bryce kept me well informed with updates and pictures and shipping times. Once the Dodge landed in NZ, Bryce kept me informed with the process and how/when I would receive the car especially as we were coming out of Lockdown. Bryce managed my expectations very well and the day of picking up the car was a highlight for both myself and my family. Thanks Bryce, you run a fantastic business!

 I’m a proud repeat Westcoast Classic’s client. Six years ago, Bryce was successful in sourcing at my request a near new 2014 Challenger R/T Classic. Looking to update, Bryce was again successful in sourcing buy to order a near new 2020 Challenger Scat Pack Widebody with both cars having c. 1,000 km’s on the clock. On both accounts, the delivery of these cars exceeded all my expectations with the cars in mint condition with low millage and I was also fortunate to receive the factory build sheets.       

Despite the current strong demand for cars in the USA and global shipping delays, Bryce succeeded in meeting all my needs and requirements in a timely manner. It was seamless with Bryce taking care of all requirements including left hand drive licence, WOF and registration. I can best describe Bryce as a true passionate professional who is committed to the cause and delivers providing constant communication along the way.

I have no doubt I will use Bryce again at some stage in the future.  

Best regards

Sean, Auckland, August 2021             2020 Scat Pack Widebody

 

Just bought our first classic car from Bryce at Westcoast Classics after following his page for a while. Westcoast Classics was recommended by a friend and we were impressed with the line up of cars he imported. Bryce made the whole process super easy. He was knowledgeable and honest, and we liked that he had been in the business for a long time. We definitely recommend getting in touch with Bryce if you're looking for that special car.

Thanks again

It is a pleasure to provide this testimonial to Bryce and Lisa of West Coast Classic Imports.

Having recently sold my classic Mustang I was very keen to own an F150 SVT Lightning
USA was the obvious place to look for the ideal vehicle.
I was aware of Bryce’s excellent business model from various friends and FB and was sure that was the best road to go down in terms of sourcing, shipping and compliance.
Bryce certainly exceeded  my best expectations with firstly locating an amazing vehicle, then keeping me regularly informed during the lengthy time delays experienced with the current shipping nightmare.

If you are looking for a company that can source, ship and deliver a top quality vehicle at a very competitive price, I recommend you contact Bryce.

Ashley Sim, Auckland, August 2021          2000 SVT Lightning

 

Right from the “get go” Bryce was honest and straight up.  The communication throughout the whole deal from car being loaded into the container to being unloaded in NZ/sent through compliance and then ready for pick-up was super easy.  I have owned over 20 American cars/pick-ups over the years and the whole experience with purchasing  from Bryce at Westcoast Classics has been the best so far.  Very highly recommended.

Fantastic service from Bryce. Super easy to deal with and made the whole process so simple. Absolutely stoked with the purchase. Would highly recommend and looking  forward to purchasing our next vehicle through Westcoast.

Shane, Pukekohe, July 2021            2015 Challenger R/T Classic

        

In late 2020 I decided to try and follow a dream, so my partner Grant and I started looking into how to make this happen. We had approached a number of other importers and car companies, some didn't bother to respond to us, others laughed at our budget and requested more money before they would consider talking with us. 

Then we found the Westcoast Classic Imports website site and started reading the testimonials. Wow, these were real people, like Grant and I who had purchased wicked cars, and had nothing but fantastic comments about the process of purchasing, Bryce and the team, so we took a chance. 

From day one Bryce was straight up with us, gave us unbiased advice and guided us through the entire process. No it wasn't all smooth driving, we were impacted by the Covid shipping delays, product recalls and small issues that kept popping up. 

Grant and I appreciated being kept in the loop and up to date with Bryce's communication every step of the way. 

On collection day I nearly exploded with excitement when I took the keys for my 2012 Dodge RT Challenger. Hearing the Hemi rumbling was awesome. 

So a huge thank you to Bryce and the team for hanging in there with us.

Nellie & Grant, Auckland, July 2021               2012 Challenger R/T

 

I became a customer of Westcoast Classics in a round about second hand sort of way. I approached Bryce to find a 1st generation Camaro for me, based on the testimonials from his previous customers I would give him a go. They were right he is a straight up guy with a vast knowledge & passion for American vehicles, he tells it how it is. The day I talked with Bryce he found a great looking '67, unfortunately we missed out on that one by a nat's whisker!!! Long story short, nothing else came to light & I found a '68 locally which fitted the bill. As it turned out, it was one Bryce had imported back in 2005 for the previous owner who has beautifully restored it over the last 15 years to the stunning condition it is now. Even though Bryce didn't directly sell me a car my dealings with Bryce were nothing but positive, I would highly recommend him if you are looking for your American dream car.

I purchased my survivor Firebird off West Coast Classics after receiving first class information and communication from Bryce in the three weeks running up to seeing the car in person.  When I did see her, there was no question she had to be mine - what a stunner!  The purchase process was seamless, and even though the weather could not have been worse, Red Delicious (named for her incredible red leather interior) got us all the way back to Kapiti, in the pouring rain, without a hitch.  Bryce’s passion for this old girl (the Firebird, that is!) went a long way in making me feel comfortable with the whole transaction. Highly recommended. Thanks Bryce!

A huge thank you Bryce for organising the search and find of our challenger. At all times the process was well communicated and documented with pictures and emails so we knew what was happening at all the various stages. Super stoked with the car and hope to be back at some stage in the future. 

Kind regards

I have just collected a 2007 Shelby GT500 from Bryce at Westcoast Classic Imports. This is the 3rd vehicle Bryce has imported for me and as usual it is a stunner. I couldn’t be happier with the car and the whole process. Top quality vehicles and service to match. I thoroughly recommend  Bryce to anyone wanting to purchase a quality muscle car.

Thanks so much Bryce.

Brian and Carol, Waiuku, June 2021                 2007 Shelby GT500

 

We have brought many NZ new cars from dealerships in the past and had great service. But Bryce at West coast classics has now topped that list! From arranging a walk around video for us in Arizona to giving us regular updates during a shipping Crisis and finally doing a top-notch job at compliance and final pick up. The car is superb!! Even better in real life. We look forward to becoming a repeat customer in the future. Thanks again Bryce

We purchased a 08 GT500  of Bryce in January, we were finally able to pick it up yesterday, unbelievable the  shipping delays that Bryce had to contend with, but he kept us up to date the whole time with regular emails and photos.

The  car is just awesome and exactly how he described it with heaps of pictures, if anyone is contemplating buying a classic or muscle car from the USA  then Bryce is the bloke to talk to, everything is taken care of, so all you have to do is drive it away, thanks again Bryce.

I had known of West Coast Classic for a while and had seen the large number of American cars and trucks that they imported on both Facebook and the website. So when it was time to get my Dodge Hellcat dream car I got in contact with them. With their vast contacts it did not take long for them to find it and set up a deal. I can only imagine the added stress of trying to organise shipping in this current COVID environment but Bryce dealt with it like a consummate professional. Throughout the process, from the deal being done, and the car being shipped to and arriving in New Zealand Bryce kept up a constant stream of photos and communication on how everything was progressing. When I got to pickup up the car Bryce went through all the different aspects of the car and made sure I was happy before making the trip home.

I am really appreciative of the efforts West Coast Classics put in to make this happen for me. If you want a vehicle imported these are the people to see and make your dream come true like they did for me.

Craig Whyte, Palmerston North, June 2021   2020 Challenger Hellcat Widebody

 

I have just purchased my second vehicle from Bryce, a ‘68 Plymouth Satellite Wagon (which we have nicknamed “The Goon”). 
After picking up The Goon from Tauranga we snuck up to Whangamata for the Friday night cruise at The Beach Hop and then did a 1700km road trip home.  
It was a pleasure doing business with Westcoast Classic Imports again. Transaction was hassle free and the vehicle is EXACTLY what he said it was! I’m very fussy on what goes in my garage and had lots of questions which Bryce always answered. 
I’ll be back for the next one too (but don't tell the wife lol). 
Cheers.

Saw on TradeMe a 1956 Chevrolet Belair, liked what I saw.  Rang Bryce for a viewing, he was very helpful with the process and nothing seemed to faze him. I recommend if you see a car you like and Bryce has it then go for it.

We would definitely recommend Westcoast Classics Ltd to anybody contemplating purchasing an American Classic vehicle. Great guy, great business, great transaction. 

Thanks Bryce

First time US classic owner and Bryce made the whole process a breeze with regular step by step communication during the whole process. He also has an eye for detail and sorted several small issues at his own expense and time which was the icing on the cake. I am very happy with my purchase and the level of professionalism shown and West Coast Classics will be my first port of call if I ever need another American classic.

Chris, Tauranga,  April 2021                1980 Chevrolet C10

 

The first time I spoke to Bryce, I felt like I was being listened too. He came up with I couple of different options and send me a 100+ photos of the two vehicles. Gave us time to have a good look over them with no pressure what so ever. When I contact him again we had changed our minds slightly and wanted to look at another vehicle he had ready to go. When we had a look at the vehicle, he showed us through it and gave us plenty of time to go over the vehicle and talk amongst ourselves. We purchased the vehicle that day and picked it up 2 days later. One of the best experiences buy a vehicle I have ever had. Bryce just made it so easy with no pressure. I would certainly recommend him to anyone in the market for an American vehicle.

After initially missing out on purchasing one of Westcoast Classic's cars, I was so impressed with the way they seemed to deal with the originality of their classic cars that I kept looking on their website and eventually scored our 1967 A-code Mustang.

Bryce made me feel at ease with his detailed and informative info about the condition of the car and some of its history.

Because I couldn’t get there to see the car in person, Bryce made me feel very comfortable with videos, photos, and a FaceTime call to walk around and discuss with me one on one.

This all added to the decision for us to seal the deal with confidence and purchase this sweet running and driving Mustang which we will enjoy for many years to come.

Bryce also organised transport to Dunedin for us,  so for me this has been a hassle-free experience and I have no reservations in recommending the West Coast classics team to those who wish to buy a good solid original classic car.

Many thanks Bryce

Purchasing my Chevy Silverado at West Coast Classics has been a great experience. Bryce has gone above and beyond to make sure everything is ready and the communication has been excellent. So happy with the truck.

Buying off West Coast Classics has been a pleasure and would recommend them to anyone.
