This is my first dealings with West Coast Classics, whilst I have regularly looked at WCC vehicles that have been for sale on line , I had never thought I would be buying one off them, whilst my business is of USA origin and likewise import directly on a very regular basis this type of stock is not uncommon to me. How ever the reality is 2 sets of eyes are better than 1 set and Bryce found something I couldn’t find, to make it even more appealing is that Bryce is as fussy to detail and honesty as I am, so it wasn’t that difficult for a deal to be had and I expect more will follow.
When you can make a hobby into a business or visa versa and turn a customer into a long term friend speaks millions and that’s something you don’t see a lot of in today’s society.
Thanks again Bryce for the clean honest sale.
Geoff Matthews, Kerikeri, August 2023 1967 Corvette Stingray survivor
Recently while looking for a Camaro I discovered that Bryce Williams of Westcoast Classics had just what I was looking for and it was not far from home.
After meeting Bryce I found him to be very knowledgeable, totally honest and trustworthy.I bought the car immediately as it was perfect for me and Bryce went out of his way to meet my situation.
I would 100% recommend Bryce and will be giving his business cards to my friends. looking for American cars.
Thanks heaps Bryce.
Gordon, Tauranga, August 2023 2013 Camaro ZL1
Just purchased a 1969 Chevelle from Bryce at West Coast Classics. From the initial phone call to enquire about the vehicle to the completion of the sale, Bryce was amazing to deal with.
Good open communication throughout the process with nothing being too much trouble. We would definitely deal With Bryce and West Coast Classics again.
Darrel & Terri, Rotorua, August 2023 1969 Chevelle 'Concourse Estate'
As a first time customer of West Coats Classics I found dealing with Bryce a breeze.
The car we bought was in fantastic condition, exactly as he had advertised.
I would recommend him to anyone one looking for an honest and knowledgeable guy to help them find their dream car.
Thanks Heaps Mate
Steve, Taupo, July 2023 2012 Challenger SRT 392
A big thank you to Bryce for your fantastic service, both pre-purchase and follow up. We snagged a 65 Chevrolet Caprice, road tripped it home to the south island without a hitch. We had heard a bit about how good Bryce was to deal with, well it was all true. Read all the comments here and on trade me and see for yourself. Thanks mate, I will be talking to you again.
Tony, Nelson, June 2023 1965 Impala Caprice 396
We just recently purchased a vehicle off Bryce. Went and had a look at the car, it was the real deal. Bryce took care of everything, vinning, rego. and wof. We just turned up the following weekend and drove it home. To easy. Turned out the car was even better than I thought. It had all the original paper work, and all the service history. One of the nicest survivor cars I've seen so far. Thanks Bryce.
Ian, Whakatane, February 2023 1972 Dodge Dart Swinger
I took my wife out to inspect this 2017 Dodge Hellcat, I love my wife, she is the best. She said to me that she never thought she would meet someone who acts, thinks and does the same as what i do, Bryce is that person, met face to face twice with him but it feels like I have know him for years.
Getting to the point, I was told to get hold of Bryce years ago, I was told he is the best in the business, well Bryce I wish I had taken that advise, now I have my absolute dream car to join a couple of others I have in the shed, Netty (my Wife) I promise this is the last car I buy without selling one of the others first…. (She made me sign a contract) Hahaha.
I highly recommend Bryce and West Coast Classics to be your first point if you are looking for any car, if he hasn’t got it I am sure he will find it. The service was exceptional.
Well done Bryce on the excellent service, honesty, quality af the car and knowledge you shared with me.
Kerry & Jeanette, Tauranga, January 2023 2017 Challenger Hellcat
I emailed early on a Sunday morning and didn’t really expect a response till Monday but I got one within 15 minutes. We exchanged a couple of emails and then later in the day we spent an hour on the phone talking me through the car and answering my questions. I was really impressed with your knowledge and patience, especially on a Sunday!! You took the time to listen to me and understand what I wanted, meaning I felt confident that I was making an informed decision to purchase the Challenger. I had heard about you for many years and all of it was good, I’m glad I have had the opportunity to do business with you and next time I’m in the market for American muscle I will be in contact again. Thanks so much, the car is awesome and the whole process was seamless.
Karl, Auckland, January 2023 2016 Challenger SRT 392
We purchased our HellCat from Bryce and Lisa prior to Christmas 2022. The car was exactly as described, and handover was easy.
We would certainly trade with Bryce and Lisa again!
Shaun, Hamilton, January 2023 2015 Challenger Hellcat
We purchased and drove away our “new addition” right in the middle of the holidays. Nothing was an issue, the communication was superb and I’ve never felt more confident in the vehicle we have brought. Bryce really does hold a high level of integrity and it shows in the vehicles he sells. There is no pressure or sales tactics, just a passionate enthusiast with years of experience to set you on the right track but ultimately letting you make a great decision. We will definitely be back!
Flinn, Wellington, January 2023 1978 GMC Sierra 'C10'
Having searched the globe for a Datsun 240z, quite by chance I was informed of perhaps two of these for sale in Tauranga, by a past customer of Westcoast Classics, Ken Smith. I contacted Bryce and sure enough he had them.
Now it gets better. Bryce gave me a description of these cars over the phone, explaining the plus and minus of the two examples and, thanks to his rearrangement of appointments to fit my requirements, the next day I was in Te Puna.
I met with Bryce and was immediately greeted by a down to earth car enthusiast like any of us. His telephone descriptions were 100% accurate, no sugar coating the blemishes or high-points of either car but helpful to explain, the work carried out, the vehicle history and the possible potential of improvements to add value to both Datsun Z cars.
Better again we negotiated an even more fair price with some throw-ins to seal a deal. Naturally please with my purchase I must say I was delighted to have met and dealt with such an honest and genuinely sincere person.
Thank you Westcoast Classics and Bryce I now consider you friend as you have made my classic car search an enjoyable experience. I will keep in touch.
Graham Standring, Auckland, December 2022 1975 Datsun 240Z
Hi we just purchased a chevy c10 truck. From start to end the service was amazing. Even before then just trying to find the right vehicle Bryce was exceptional with how he conducts business, in all aspects. We will definitely be going back it's just a matter of when.
Brenda & Steve, December 2022 1986 C10
I happened to be looking for a '57 Belair when I spotted one that Bryce had. The other 5 had up to 10 watchers, and Bryce's had 200+ so I had a look. Then I contacted Bryce and we struck a deal. He was very helpful, and provided me with heaps of new spares to assist with compliance. The car is exactly as promised and I'm very happy with it. Can't believe that nobody else grabbed it. Cheers again Bryce.
Dayal, Paraparaumu, November 2022 1957 Chevrolet Sedan
This was my first time buying from West Coast Classics and it was an excellent move. Having bought a car in from the US previously I know there is more than a little drama to finding the right car let alone shipping etc.
Bryce certainly has a knack for finding good quality cars and I was really impressed when I finally got to pick the car up.
I couldn’t recommend Bryce more highly, he’s a top rate guy that runs a smooth ship.
Will definitely be back some time in the future
Josh, Auckland, November 2022 1965 Chevelle Malibu
Bryce was a great bloke to deal with. Was like buying from a friend. Too easy, nothing pushy. I highly recommend talking to Westcoast Classics if you are after an American muscle car - new or old. After just finishing a 2,100km road trip home to Southland I can say I absolutely love it. Great car, great buying experience.
Garry, Lumsden, November 2022 2015 Challenger Hellcat
I first came across Bryce in a commercial setting over 10 years ago with customers needing a vehicle purchased out of the US .... his comment to me then was "I wouldn't buy a vehicle for someone I wouldn't purchase myself". That has always stuck with me over the years and why I have no hesitation recommending Westcoast to anyone, Bryce is a true example of honesty and integrity in this business. So glad it was my turn to purchase an awesome F-150 truck for hubby's daily driver. AAA+++ rating
Tracy, New Plymouth, October 2022 1996 F150 Short Bed
The realization of a lifelong dream for us. Was a long haul for us getting to yesterday. Thanks for your patience and support Bryce. Great to work with someone who wanted to help us achieve our dream and drive this beautiful car away.
Steve and Coral, Pokeno, September 2022 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente
Wide Track Pontiacs are the coolest. I saw Bryce’s listing for the 67 Pontiac and could see that it was a nice genuine stock California black plate car.
Bryce was helpful by sending photos right away and kept me updated with the shipping to NZ.
It arrived safe and sound and only needed a few compliance issues sorted. Bryce managed all the compliance and registration without fuss.
Bryce was generous with his time and delivered everything he said he would do. I would be happy to buy from Bryce again. Thanks Bryce.
Roger, Hamilton, September 2022 1967 Pontiac Le Mans
I had spent several years dreaming about owning a Dodge Challenger and was over being just a passenger on road-trips in mates similar vehicles. Two of my best mates had told me about Bryce at Westcoast Classics and I had spied an inaugural year 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 on their website a few weeks before it had even arrived in the country. The Hemi Orange colour was the clincher for me. I just had to convince wifey that I NEEDED this car!
I contacted with Bryce who responded immediately with extra photos and details. He even told me about small defects the car had that I wouldn’t have even noticed! I could tell straight away that I was dealing with a man of honesty and integrity. The transaction proceeded smoothly from there and I am now living the dream.
I will not hesitate to recommend Bryce to anyone who wants to fulfil a similar dream. The man is a legend!
Judd, Mangawhai, August 2022 2008 Challenger SRT8
We recently purchased our 57 Chev from Bryce at Westcoast Classics. From the moment I spoke to Bryce on the phone the process was seamless. It's great to deal with a seller who gives you all the info you need and everything is exactly as described. There has been great follow up with us after the purchase to make sure everything is going well, which it is. Bryce is a top notch dealer and bloke, I highly recommend him if you are looking for that special car.
Ian, Motueka, June 2022 1957 Chevrolet 210
Once we had decided to purchase a Dodge Challenger we knew that the process of importing it ourselves would be very hard to do without the right contacts.
A friend in Christchurch had no hesitation in recommending Bryce from Westcoast Classic Imports who he had purchased 3 cars off.
When we contacted Bryce, he was very helpful with his knowledge on the American market and soon we had purchased a vehicle, Bryce had the car inspected by his buyer over there and sent us photos of everything.
With the deposit paid we had excellent updating emails, txts and phone calls from Bryce about where the car was, how it was getting to his yard, when the shipping was booked etc.
With the hap hazard shipping it took a little bit longer than expected to arrive but Bryce was on to it as soon as it touched the ground in NZ getting it complied, groomed and ready for us to pick up, even offering to drive it down to Dunedin for us.
He picked us up at the airport in our new car, took us back to his base spending time explaining features of our vehicle and sending us on our road trip home. Awesome ten day trip cruising central and lower north island and back to the main land.
In our opinion he’s a straight shooter with a vast amount of knowledge when it comes to importing any sort of vehicle from America.
If you are thinking of importing a vehicle or even just purchasing any one of the many cars he brings in. We highly recommend Bryce and his team at Westcoast Classic Imports.
Chris & Ngaio, Riverton, June 2022 2018 Challenger Scat Pack
Just wanted to say I am very pleased with the 67 Camaro. As with the Dodge I purchased a few years ago the process and straight forward honesty made this an easy deal.
Fair price, good product and great service. See you in another couple of years for number 3.
Sean, Clarkes Beach, June 2022 1967 Camaro RS Convertible
I’d been looking and considering acquiring one of these Shelby’s for some time.
When I saw this particular machine advertised in the colour and spec I liked, I jumped on it and contacted Bryce from West Coast Classic’s.
I hadn’t heard of them before, but after a quick reference check, found they came with a great reputation.
Bryce gave me the run down on the vehicle and guaranteed it was a one owner straight car from a Dealer he had done business with before, currently in transition to their Californian base.
The deal was straight forward and done with ease, I was kept up to date with progress throughout the delivery process.
On arrival the car was everything Bryce said it would be and all the hard work had been done as promised.
I drove away one happy customer and couldn’t thank Bryce and the team at West Coast Classic Imports enough !
I would certainly recommend them to anyone based on my experience with this purchase. 😎
Glen, Bombay, May 2022 2020 Shelby GT500
As I have previously owned Shelby GT500's, I was very keen to update to the latest 2020 model. I have privately imported the previous models myself but this time around I was having real difficulty in securing one without having to pay a significant premium to the US based dealers. Add to this the recent difficulties with shipping, this was making the whole exercise almost impossible. I discussed this particular car which Bryce had available as it had all the options that I wanted. Once the car had landed in NZ, based on Bryce's visual inspection and on a friends recent experience dealing with Bryce, I purchased the car sight unseen. When I picked the vehicle up, upon inspection it was everything Bryce had said. I can't recommend Bryce highly enough, his communication was excellent, lots of photos to look over and he made the whole purchasing process simple and easy. Thank you Bryce, an excellent experience.
Oh, and the car is awesome.
Ken, Auckland, May 2022 2020 Shelby GT500
Failing to find what I was looking for in NZ I came across Bryce's ad in the NZ V8 magazine and gave him a ring regarding a 2018 Silverado I had my eye on in America. I couldn't fault any part of the process . Bryce kept me up to date with phone calls, emails and photo's. I would highly recommend Bryce & his team. Much appreciated Bryce.
Ronny Barker, Kaikoura, May 2022 2018 Silverado 1500
We would like to thank Westcoast Classic Imports for making our very first purchase of a classic car very enjoyable and stress free. We brought a beautiful Mercury Meteor and are very happy with the purchase. Bryce went the extra mile and installed seatbelts in the back to ensure the safety of our young traveler's.
Great communication throughout the process and would highly recommend.
Brad & Amy, Hamilton, May 2022 1962 Mercury Meteor
Having purchased many cars over the years buying from Bryce at Westcoast Classics was probably my best ever purchase experience. We were kept informed, we got updates, we got delivery as agreed and it was a highly enjoyable experience and I would recommend Bryce to anyone thinking about an American car. EXCELLENT!!!!!!
Mark, Waikato, May 2022 2020 Challenger Hellcat Redeye Widebody
I had been looking for a Challenger for quite a while, and I was quite picky with what I was after. I had almost given up hope of ever finding the car for me until one day West Coast Classics came up in my Facebook feed. I contacted Bryce immediately and literally within 2 weeks had done a deal with him. I wish I had found Bryce months ago as would have saved me a lot of time, couldn’t have been easier once I had made that initial contact.
Bryce was very communicative throughout the whole process, and even took time out of his holiday away to keep in touch with me, and the compliance/permitting/registration process was extremely quick and painless.
I would highly recommend Bryce if you are looking for an American car, great customer experience.
JP, Auckland, May 2022 2008 Challenger SRT8
I had been looking around for a Challenger for quite some time before I happened to have a conversation with Bryce.
I was interested in a Challenger he had on the water. Bryce was able to give me all the details of that vehicle and it was very reassuring that what he described was going to be exactly what we would see when it arrived. Shipping delays were rather testing on the patience but Bryce keep us updated along the way and the compliance process was super fast.
Bryce went out of his way to meet us at the airport and I have been extremely impressed with the service he has offered.
The car was an absolute pleasure to drive back down to the mainland.
Simon and family, Timaru, April 2022 2009 Challenger SRT8
We have just purchased our Dodge Challenger from West Coast Classics .The car is far better than we expected. It is awesome - everything we wanted and more.
Bryce is so easy to deal with and a excellent communicator .
Again thank you Bryce
Norm & Lynn, Auckland, March 2022 2012 Challenger SRT 392
After my first experience of looking and purchasing a classic car, which was a total disappointment! I chose this time to do things different. After trawling though all the usual sites for several months, I finally come across this 68 Camaro which ticked all the boxes. This time was to be different, I were in the market for a clean unmolested classic and a sight unseen purchase was not going to happen. After making contact with Bryce, I felt very comfortable and viewing was arranged. At the viewing Bryce could not have been more helpful and honest, and tolerant I must say.
Purchasing from Westcoast Classic Imports was a pleasure. If you are in the market for a classic car, Bryce is well worth your first call, you will get informative and honest information and even better still you will get a Great Honest car.
Westcoast Classic Imports will be my first port of call for any future classic.
Thanks Bryce and Lisa.
Craig, Cambridge, March 2022 1968 Camaro Survivor
Bryce at Westcoast Classic Imports is great to deal with. I have bought two vehicles from him, new and old and both were exactly as described. Wouldn't hesitate recommending him to anyone.
Damon, Auckland, March 2022 1986 GMC Sierra
Bryce and Lisa were great to work with and very helpful throughout the whole purchasing and importing process. We have bought and sold many cars over the years, but working with them made the whole process simpler than ever. The car was exactly as described. Highly recommend working with them.
Todd, Wellington, March 2022 1965 Chevelle Malibu
Bryce was very easy to communicate with and gave honest straight up answers to any questions, he went out of his way to get the car to where we could view it and made the deal very pleasurable. I would certainly recommend Westcoast Classics if you are looking for a car”.
I had been hunting around for a 300C for a number of months and came across this one on Trade Me.
I made contact with Bryce and straight away I knew what he was talking about, upfront, gave me lots of details about the vehicle, assured me it was in top condition and I wouldn't be disappointed. That was enough for me to grab it.
Jumped on a bus from New Plymouth to Tauranga where Bryce picked me up in the car, we hit it off and he was right, I wasn't disappointed. After Bryce went over all the good stuff the vehicle had, I hit the road back to Taranaki. The drive was awesome, grinning all the way home and I reckon I was still grinning even when I went to sleep that night.
Man it is cool to see the 300 in my shed.
Thanks Bryce the whole deal was incredibly easy and would highly recommend you and West Coast Classic.
Geoff, New Plymouth, February 2022 2016 Chrysler SRT 392
I recently purchased a 68 Firebird from Bryce at Westcoast Classics.
Bryce was very easy to communicate with and gave honest straight up answers to any questions, he went out of his way to get the car to where we could view it and made the deal very pleasurable. I would certainly recommend Westcoast Classics if you are looking for a car.
Ross, Palmerston North, January 2022 1968 Pontiac Firebird 400
Just wanted to let you know how stoked I am with the Challenger. It is definitely a whole lot more of a car than I was ever hoping for. The condition both inside and out of the car is immaculate and I am just rapt with the whole package.
Thanks for making the process so simple from my first enquiry in the middle of a lockdown right through to getting the car delivered to Kapiti right on the eve of a holiday, you made the whole process stress free and really easy. Buying a car like this has been a long term dream and I am really glad that I choose to go through the process with you. Appreciate all of your time and effort involved in getting the car delivered to a really happy customer.
Ben, Kapiti Coast, December 2021 2010 Challenger SRT8
I would just like to say this is the first time buying a American car and after a number of years looking I finally called West coast classics I total recommend these guys with there professional service, the car is exactly as stated. There where regular updates throughout the whole process,
This is my third vehicle purchased through Westcoast Classic Imports and Bryce and the team have exceeded expectations. Constant communication and an overall excellent customer experience was given. I love the new car and I would highly recommend Bryce and the team to anyone.
Rob, Wellington, December 2021 2019 Hellcat Redeye Widebody
This is my second purchase with WCC. If you are looking for an investment, collectable vehicle or just get the "urge to splurge", Bryce and his team are the best in the business. They deliver on their purpose and provide certainty with regular updates throughout the whole purchasing process. An absolute pleasure to deal with and would definitely use their services again.
Darren, Auckland, December 2021 1969 Camaro
Thanks to Bryce and the team, I have finally got my dream car after years of saving
Bryce made it easy for me throughout the whole process from day one without stress.
I have to say that when you talk to Bryce, he makes you feel confident about making that big purchase
and put’s your mind at ease as not only does he send you all the photos of your car, but he keeps you up to date every step of the way.
To be honest to those looking to import a car, talk to Bryce; you will not be disappointed.
Dan, Auckland, December 2021 2008 Challenger SRT8
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.
Khan, Wainuiomata, November 2021
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.
Lance Miller, Hillsborough, Auckland - now a proud left hand drive Mustang Owner
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!
Dave, Tauranga, October 2021 1965 Falcon Futura
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!
Luke, Hamilton, September 2021 2019 Hellcat Redeye Widebody
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.
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.
Jan, Auckland, August 2021
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.
Duncan, Manawatu, July 2021 2011 Camaro 2SS/RS
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.
Murray, Christchurch, June 2021 1968 Camaro
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!
Hazel, Kapiti Coast, June 2021 1976 Firebird Survivor
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
