“Bryce and his team at Westcoast Classics were awesome to work with throughout the whole process.
I wanted a “purchase to order” pickup truck and Bryce was on the money with what I was looking for, he gave me some options and great advice too. He kept me updated all the way, even with txt messages on Sunday morning.
Awesome experience all round and I’m telling all my mates how easy it was and what a good honest knowledgeable guy Bryce is. Don’t delay if you are looking for a classic ride give Bryce a shout.
Rob, Auckland, November 2017      1976 Chevy C10 Silverado
P.S. Mean every word of it too.

I just brought from Westcoast classics a 1997 Dodge Ram which is awesome by the way. This process couldn"t have been easier. Bryce did a fantastic job to make it all come together. If your looking for an American classic or mussle car, West coast classics is the place to go. I highly recommend West coast classics & thanks again Bryce & the team for an awesome result. Cheers.

"I recently brought a 2013 Camaro from Bryce at Westcoast Classics. This purchase was made so very easy. The professionalism displayed by Bryce is to be commended, This is "Customer Service" at its very best. If you want a Great customer experience and of course a Great Westcoast Classic Car, then this is your one stop shop. 5 Stars. Thank you."

Bruce, Napier, October 2017



“Cheers Bryce for my awesome challenger! You have exceeded my expectations in both service and quality, your no nonsense straight up approach to business is just like it was back in the good old days and made the whole process seamless and enjoyable, you told me the car was spectacular and I placed far too much trust in your word, it was better than that!  This car is in far better condition than any I had seen on the yard here in Hamilton.

If anyone is looking to buy some great American muscle then Westcoast Classics is the place to go, it can be daunting splashing that cash on a vehicle you have only seen in photos but there is no need to be wary, Bryce is completely up front and honest about what you will be getting, you will be kept up to date with comprehensive photos along the way and you won’t have to deal with any nasty hidden surprises, the vehicle will be better than you expected, don’t just take my word for it, be sure to check out more reviews from happy customers who have stated the same. Bryce  even imported some aftermarket goodies for me with the vehicle for which I only paid a fraction of what I would have had to pay off the shelf in NZ and to top it all off I even got a cool Westcoast Classics T shirt thrown in when I collected the car!

Cheers Bryce I will absolutely be a repeat customer”

Duane, Hamilton, September 2017       2013 Challenger R/T Classic  


After looking at my options of obtaining my late model Chevy Camaro I decided to contact Bryce at Westcoast Classic Imports.

From the first time I spoke to Bryce, his knowledge and advice came through loud and clear and I felt very comfortable trusting Bryce and his team to get the Camaro I dreamed of.

Once we found the Camaro I wanted, Bryce and John made short work of getting it purchased and sent to San Francisco for shipping.

The whole process of getting it to NZ was relayed to me via emails, phone calls, and photos, keeping me informed of every stage of it’s travels.

Videos, and photos of it’s arrival in Tauranga was exciting and hightened our expectation of seeing it for real.

It was a brilliant weekend for us to travel to Tauranga, meet Bryce face to face over a coffee, and pick up the Camaro .

If you are thinking of getting an American Classic car, go no further than Westcoast Classic Imports, you will not be dissapointed.”

Neil, Palmerston North, September 2017         2015 Camaro Green Flash Edition  


From seeing the car on Facebook and calling you (When I was on holiday in the U.SA ) the experience with Westcoast Classics has been absolute awesome !!!. This was my first time buying something that I haven’t seen or driven, we are VERY happy with the way the car drives and looks.

If you are thinking of buying a Classic Or Muscle car we would highly recommend talking to Westcoast Classics Ltd, Bryce ( The Owner ) is straight up, friendly and very helpfully. When my  car was loaded into the container Westcoast Classics sent around 50 photos of the car and kept me up to date with Collecting Car, paper work, , Container loading, Boat leaving and more photos of the car been unloaded in New Zealand.

We flew to Tauranga and Bryce was at the airport to meet us with the car, it was as per the photos and MORE !!! He then spent around 40min showing me how things worked & even contacted my phone to the radio.
I would like to give Westcoast Classics 10 out of 10 - service / Friendly / Helpful.
I am also happy for my mobile number to be posted if people would like to hear it from me.  10 out of 10 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks again Bryce for all your work to get this car here on time.
Shane Wilson, Auckland, September 2017      2012 Camaro 2SS/RS


WOW. What a way to buy an imported car. We saw the car advertised, called Bryce straight away to discuss and ask questions. Bryce was so easy to talk to (even on a Sunday night). The next morning we had an email with all the information we needed to follow through with the purchase. Photos of the car were sent through from the states in the next few days. From there we were kept informed of the progress and today I picked up my gorgeous Camaro. Bryce is a fantastic guy to deal with. I recommend.

Tina, Rotorua, September 2017     2011 Camaro 2SS/RS


I contacted Bryce in February 2017 in regard to purchasing a 1991 GMC Sierra that took my eye as it was a tad retro with 90’s mods. After receiving many photos of the vehicle pre arrival I was happy to depart with my deposit to secure this little GEM. When the vehicle arrived in N.Z Bryce quickly became aware of the many mods this vehicle had undergone over the years and he knew compliance was going to be a challenge. He asked me several times if I wanted to look at a something else and back away from this beast but stubbornly I said NO I’ve got my heart set on this one. Unbeknown to us both the challenges in compliance were bigger than Texas. Bryce stuck by his word and tirelessly worked through the compliance issues on my behalf with some pretty serious C notch repairs undertaken, and ride height mods to get the green flag to hit the road last weekend. I’m sure that after seven months Bryce will miss my weekly update requests  “NOT”. Thanks for your work on this Bryce and I cannot recommend Westcoast more highly for undertaking this on my behalf and the integrity that Bryce showed through this whole process.

Happy at last ….

Martin O’Connor, Auckland, September 2017       1991 GMC Sierra



I recently purchased a 1998 Ram through Bryce and highly recommend him as being your first choice if you are in the market for a quality import. The transaction was nothing but seamless and Bryce kept me fully informed throughout the process. I WILL be a returning customer.

Gary, Whangarei, September 2017        1998 Dodge Ram 1500

Hi Bryce.  It's a week since we picked up our Chevy. We must thank you so much for making the purchase so easy and painless. The Cheyenne is all that you said it would be, really great condition, a pleasure to own and drive. We are singing your praises long and loud, all the pressure was on you, and you certainly delivered!! We would have no qualms about coming to see you again should we want another American vehicle! We will certainly stay in touch.

Thanks again.
Arthur and Lynn, Rotorua, September 2017       1997 Chevy Cheyenne

Hi Bryce. I am still smiling over the deal on the '56 Belair  You are so easy to deal with and were up front with its little problems. There were no surprises once I got here home. Can't believe how mint and clean this car is. l would recommened anybody wanting an American car to deal with you as up front and honesty rate very high with me. Thank you so much for a great car and no regrets. Cheers.

Grant Sumner, Morinnsville, August 2017     1956 Chevrolet Belair

Thanks Bryce for an easy and enjoyable trade. I appreciated being able to buy and sell in one hit, with fair prices. It was great to have several trucks to choose from, and the vehicle was ideal for my purposes. You're integrity was obvious, when you resolved a minor issue at your cost.I would recommend any-one to trade with you.  Cheers.
Paul, Gisborne, August 2017      1995 F150

Thanks to Bryce and the team at Westcoast Classics.We were treated amazing during the whole deal,Everything was done for us and we now are proud owners of an awesome Dodge Challenger. Kind Regards

Mick & Annie, Alexandra, August 2017       2013 Challenger R/T Classic

I would like to say, Bryce made the experience so painless and easy.
This was my first time buying something that i havent't seen but he was so helpful and knowledgeable through the whole process. 
I would definitely use Bryce again and highly recommend him.
Thanks again Bryce I love my new car!
Sarah, Auckland, August 2017      1966 Chrysler New Yorker



As stated on the phone when the truck arrived it was everything you said it would be including the marks on the 20 year old paint and the small issue with the wipers. Nothing hidden and no surprises.

The truck is better than the photos provided which is bloody marvellous and your statement that it drove really nicely was spot on.

The process from my initial contact to the truck delivery was professional in all aspects and I knew what was happening at all times.

You were great to deal with and when I need another vehicle I will come straight back to you.


Ian, Steadfast Civil, Dunedin, August 2017.       1997 Chevy Silverado




My experience with Westcoast Classics has been nothing short of absolute awesomeness. From the time I spoke with Bryce about what I was looking for, he was straight up with what was out there, the price, difference between late VS not so late models, etc. Updating me the whole way through and organising everything from transport, customs & MPI clearance, even the LHD permit. The car? Well.........WOW!! It was even better than I expected and that's another goal off the bucket list. Thank you Bryce and WCC for everything!

Thanks to Bryce Williams of West Coast Classics and his team for helping us buy and transport the 2014 Shelby from Illinois to San Francisco and then ship to Tauranga. All without a scratch and no dramas. It was well out of my comfort zone to purchase a vehicle without even seeing it. After meeting Bryce I knew he was the man to do the job. I have no problem with recommending Bryce to anyone who wants a cool American Car.

Once again, Thank You.
Kevin and Marilyn, Tirau, June 2017           2014 Shelby GT500




Just purchased a 1963 Mercury Meteor from Bryce, The process was simply easy......After viewing and test drive it was Sold, totally as discribed a real honey , all questions answered and promises kept and did I say the car is amazing!! Even when we had a breakdown on delivery ( faulty condenser)the service didn't stop and the car was promptly delivered to my door in HB, really genuine service I will be back for another from Bryce and the team at West Coast. Highly recommended!!

Neil, Napier, June 2017    1963 Mercury Meteor




Hi Bryce

Well I have been driving the F150 for a week now and I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision to put my faith in you. I must admit I was hesitant outlaying so much money upfront without being able to inspect and touch the vehicle and not meeting you in person beforehand. But now that I have done it I wouldn’t hesitate in doing it again or recommending anybody else to take the leap of faith. It is a rare thing these days to find such an honest upfront real person let alone a vehicle dealer. The whole experience has been a true pleasure.

Thanks very much.

Rex, Inglewood, June 2017      1997 F150




We’re proud owners of a delicious ‘67 Camaro, thanks to Bryce and Lisa at Westcoast Classic Imports.  From beginning to end, their service was impeccable.  A huge set of comprehensive photo’s set our minds immediately at ease and Bryce could tell you the cars entire story – warts and all.  Bryce and his team complete a very thorough investigation so you really do know everything about the car before you buy.  The communication throughout the entire process was outstanding and Bryce arranged all the on road conversions on our behalf which meant all we had to do was sign a cheque, pick up our new baby and drive off into the sunset. Too easy!  Thanks so much to Bryce and Lisa – we would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking at importing a car and would like a hassle-free experience!”

Liz & Grant, Tauranga, June 2017    1967 Camaro



Hi Bryce

A big thank-you to you and your team at Westcoast Classic Imports for making my dream become a reality. Excellent experience dealing with you, talking through the various Challenger models, deciding on the SRT and getting one delivered straight to my front door. You took the time out to video it over the phone for me and talk me through the various controls on the day it arrived. Really important is that you kept me up-to-date during the entire process, no surprises, and the car was exactly as you described. Great customer service all the way. I will certainly recommend you to other people looking for a car out of the USA and I would not hesitate buying another vehicle from you. (Passionate about mustangs but loving the dodge!)
Ann, West Melton, June 2017      2016 Challenger SRT 392




Bryce thank you SO much for your all your attention to detail on our purchase, your service and communication is 5 star and I can't wait to do it all again. We had the best road trip back to freezing Christchurch ... just perfect. Thanks again you have made my husband a very happy man.

Ngarita, Christchurch, June 2017    2015 Challenger R/T Plus



After a huge heart vs. head debate, I decided that I “needed” a Hellcat.  I considered importing one myself, however I knew the risks of getting a lemon, as well as the pain of having to get compliance permits, etc.  Several people recommended using Bryce at Westcoast Classics to import the car.  I knew I’d be parting with a decent amount of cash to get a car like that, so I decided to give Bryce a call.  I immediately felt at ease, and he found my car in less than 24 hours.  He kept me updated throughout the entire process, giving me a timeline of expected dates.  I did ask him about transporting the car to me, but Bryce suggested that I would not regret coming to Tauranga to collect it from him.  He was right, it was an awesome trip home!!  It was great to meet you Bryce.  Thanks for sourcing, and bringing my car to NZ.  You rock, and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is considering importing a car from the US.  J  

Ange, Masterton, May 2017    2016 Challenger Hellcat



Hi Bryce, thought we'd let you know that we are absolutely rapt with the Mustang Shelby GT350.  You made the whole car purchase very easy and hassle free.  Thanks again for such a friendly smooth experience.  Look forward to dealing with you again.                                                   

Simon and Nicky, Auckland, May 2017     2016 Shelby GT350



Westcoast Classics turned buying my dream car into a fantastic personalised experience.  I set Bryce a tough challenge of finding a car with some very specific options, and yet he very quickly came through with a perfect match.  Even though I had already done quite a bit of research, Bryce’s knowledge of these cars reassured me that I had made a great choice.

If you want to remove the risk and uncertainty from importing an American car, as well as avoid worrying about meeting all the regulations and getting the correct paperwork done, then I highly recommend you make Westcoast Classics your first choice for making dreams come true.

Duncan, Rangiora, May 2017      2016 Dodge Challenger SRT 392


Just a big thank you to Bryce and the team for our Camaro. You make the whole process so easy and the Camaro is terrific just had the tints done looks great .Thanks again.

Murray, Tauranga, May 2017       2017 Camaro 2SS


Hi Bryce. Just want to say that we really so happy with our F150. This was the easiest deal ever and we got just what we wanted. The drive from Tauranga to Blenheim was awesome Truck runs and drives like a dream. We will be back for our next car for sure. Thank you so much. 

Paul & Melissa, Blenheim, May 2017       1995 F150


After thinking for a bit, finally got my GMC Sierra.

Dad had quite a few Chev's when I was younger and lived in Canada, always wanted one when I got older. Fast forward quite a few years, and finally own my own GMC truck! Still quite hard to believe when I look out the window and there's this big truck sitting there and it's mine!

Dealing with Bryce was very quick and always offered great customer service and fast responses and after sale support.
Thanks very much Bryce, love the truck!

Tyron, Auckland, March 2017    1994 GMC Sierra


I wanted to buy my first classic car, I knew the year and make I wanted but my knowledge ended there. Bryce was awesome, we spent 3 hours talking about do and don'ts of classics and pouring over the car inside and out. I never felt any pressure from Bryce to purchase his car over any other - just lots and lots of really good information.

At one point, he came outside and found me lying inside the boot looking up under the back parcel tray, his only comment was – You’re really getting stuck in, good on you!  I came away knowing exactly what I was up for with straight up and honest advice, we planned purchasing from the states but found exactly what we wanted at West Coast, with no unforeseen costs, risks or stress!

I have a smile a mile wide while driving MY stunning original condition 1966 Grand Prix – what a beautiful ride - I would highly recommend Bryce from West Cost Imports, they have VERY high standards and I am VERY VERY happy with my purchase!

Thanks Bryce! You have made my mid-life crisis a little less painless!!

Ranjit, Auckland, March 2017    1966 Pontiac Grand Prix


Thanks for a great experience in buying our first classic car. From start to finish you were straight up and told it like it was and that honesty was appreciated.Also, thanks for helping out with the delivery. We are looking forward to breathing new life back into our car and enjoying it for many years to come.We would recommend Westcoast Classics to anyone looking to own a unique American vehicle.

Many thanks.

Craig & Jodie, Papamoa, March 2017    1965 Mustang


For some time I've been looking for a replacement for my Holden HZ ute to tow my race cars and wanting something different to the usual Japanese diesel ute I phoned Bryce at Westcoast Classic Imports and sure enough he had just what I was looking for a '95 Dodge Ram 1500 with a proper engine in it (5.9L V8).Bryce sent through a large file of photo's ans answered any questions I had promptly but as I have never purchased a vehicle sight unseen I drove over to Tauranga to have a look at it and as soon as I saw the truck I knew I had wasted my time as the condition was better than Bryce described or the photos showed.
 I would highly recommend Bryce to anybody looking for that unique vehicle. You can purchase it sight unseen with complete confidence, it's nice to find a dealer that you can trust and who does what he says he will do.
Mal, Taranaki, March 2017      1995 Dodge Ram

Tarnia and I just purchased a 2016 Shelby GT350 from Bryce and Westcoast classic Imports, what a fantastic car!  Picked it up last week and drove it home back to Rangiora. Awesome trip, the performance is incredible and we just love the car. The GT350 is the real Mustang and a fantastic drivers car.

Can’t recommend Bryce and his team high enough. He made the whole process so easy for a first time Muscle Car buyer. We saw  the car on Facebook and rang Bryce to put our name on it, he kept us up to date with detailed photos of the car,  progress reports, arrival time, left hand drive permit, and certification etc .

Bryce was straight  forward easy to deal with and very honest throughout the  whole process he kept us well informed, also at a very realistic price that’s  inclusive of everything.  So if you are looking to purchase an  American Muscle car Bryce and Westcoast Classic Imports are the ones to get the Car you want hassle free.

So pleased we brought our Shelby from Bryce.   

Many thanks.

Tony & Tarnia, Rangiora, March 2107      2016 Shelby GT350


Thanks so much for the great deal on the Ford Lightning you made it so easy I would recommend you to anyone that was looking for a American car


Tim Mitchell, Cambridge, March 2017    1999 Ford SVT Lightning


“Thanks so much for making the purchase of a late model car out of the states so simple and stress free. Purchasing the car was so simple, more than enough photos, West Coast Classic’s reputation and Bryce’s honesty took any stress out of the process.

When the car arrive it was twice the car I was expecting and its an absolute dream to drive!! If you have considered importing a car and you have any concerns then quite simply deal with Bryce and his team because it is actually easier than buying a car from a local dealer, no pressure, no sales tactics, no bullshit!! And of course you get the best price!! The only problem now is the wife wants to drive the car…..lol”

Brent, Tauranga, February 2017      2016 Camaro 2SS


We recently picked up our 1994 F150 from Bryce in Tauranga.

Really happy with it as we had the worst first drive back home over the Kaimais in torrential rain. I said to myself "self, I hope these old Californian windscreen wipers hang in there!" Probably never been on full speed before!

No nasty surprises at all. The truck is everything Bryce said it was and the whole process was easy plus we were kept well informed through the entire process.

We would certainly recommend Bryce to anyone who is looking to import a vehicle from the States.

 Thanks again Bryce!

 Warren Delaney & Sue Stewart, Hamilton, February 2017     1994 F150


I recently won an auction on Trade Me, with Westcoast Classic Imports.  The auction site provided excellent information and photographs, thus making on-line purchase easy.  Bryce at Westcoast was easy to deal with and provided regular progress reports.  Vehicle arrived safely and in time-frame promised.  I would definitely deal with this trader again.

Dave, Porirua, February 2017    1994 GMC Sierra


We bought a truck before Xmas - Bryce and Lisa were absolutely awesome to deal with - so good to find someone you can trust these days. We are so pleased with the truck - its exactly what we wanted and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend dealing with West Coast Classics - and we will definitely be dealing with them again! Many thanks guys ;0)

Nick and Sandi, Auckland, February 2017     1996 GMC Sierra


From my first contact with Bryce from Westcoast Classic Imports I knew I had made the right decision. Being a female ordering an American Muscle Car I know if I had gone elsewhere I would not have been taken seriously. I had my list of what I wanted and my budget and within a short time frame Bryce and his team had tracked down my car and my god what a beauty she is – 2014 2SS/RS Chevy Camaro, Black (of course).

From the moment the car was secured there was constant contact from Bryce, including many photos, I knew exactly what was happening, where she was at all times. Their knowledge of the importing process cannot be faulted. The professionalism of the whole team from securing the car to getting it here and finally the presentation was exceptional. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE my car.

If you are seriously looking to import a vehicle these guys are the best do not bother going anywhere else, you will be disappointed.


Lisa Jeffrey, Tauranga, February 2017     2014 Camaro 2SS/RS


Bryce at Westcoast Classics is the expert when it comes to importing some American muscle.Bryce located  and imported a Hellcat for me,keeping me informed every step of the way .Picked the car up from Tauranga and had a fantastic drive home. Still grin every time I give it some mumbo.Thanks Bryce for a job well done.

Colin, Martinborough, February 2017    2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat


We recently purchased a 2010 Dodge Challenger RT Classic. We traveled to Tauranga to collect it and the drive back to Wellington was fantastic. We love the car and Bryce was amazing to deal with. He made every step of the LHD permit and certification process straight forward and easy. Looking forward to purchasing another one from him in the future. Top deal and top bloke.

Lance & Gina, Kapiti Coast, February 2017    2010 Challenger R/T Classic


I love my 2011 Camaro SS!
Thank you Bryce and the team at West Coast Classic Imports for finding my dream car. The professonalism, expertise and service has been simply extraordinary! Bryce has a vast knowledge of the market and even with a very precise set of criteria, found my car in a couple of weeks. He provided texts, emails, dozens of photos and keep me informed every step of the way. I couldn't fault the process and continue to recommend Bryce at every opportunity and would not hesitate to use him again.
On the face of it, handing over the best part of sixty grand to someone you've never met (and may never meet), for a car you've never seen much less driven, on the promise he will buy it, ship it, VIN and register it etc for you in a couple  of months time, sounds like a Fair Go story in the making, but that's exactly was I did, pretty much based on Bryce's reputation. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.Life's too short and American cars are too cool to deny yourself the experience. do it!!
Martin, Christchurch, January 2017     2011 Camaro 2SS/RS

Just like too drop a note and say thank you for the awesome job you did for us in securing the "Tin Top & Drop Top"  ZL1's last year.
When the big guys where given the chance and taking over 3 weeks not to come through, we thought we had all but lost the two cars.
I can't thank you enough for achieving, what seemed to be the impossible in a matter of 48 hours of contacting you.  You are a "bloody legend" and a "good bloke" to boot.
Not to mention you made the transaction very easy, and gave us every confidence all the way through the process - that what makes you soooo good at what you  do!! (This is why we have since recommended others to you).
Every time I turn the Key, a big smile comes to my face - ?
Thanks again Bryce & Lisa
