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
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.
Anton Hendriks, Auckland, June 2021 2016 Challenger R/T Classic
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
Paul and Louise Palmerston North June 2021 2011 Shelby GT500
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.
Regards Adrian & Barbara Shepherd, June 2021 2008 Shelby GT500
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.
Trevor & Estelle, Matamata, April 2021 1956 Belair survivor
We would definitely recommend Westcoast Classics Ltd to anybody contemplating purchasing an American Classic vehicle. Great guy, great business, great transaction.
Mark & Sue , Cambridge, April 2021 1983 C10 Outdoorsman survivor
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.
Steve, Tauranga, February 2021 1992 GMC Sierra
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
Wayne, Mosgiel, February 2021 1967 Mustang A Code
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.
