It’s quite amazing what will sometimes pop up on trademe. In this instance it’s a 1966 130-series Cedric.
Not the prettiest of cars and certainly not in mint condition but as any Cedric aficionado will tell you, it’s not an easy one to come across. The 1966 was the very first of the 130-series which received three face-lifts in it’s tenure. What sets the “Mark I” apart aesthetically from the rest of the 130 variants, are the block like tail-lamps that sit far to each side, as shown in the next photo…
This particular car is claimed to be a 2600cc 6cylinder. Which is likely to mean that at some stage someone has put an L26 in it. That’s a little disappointing if it is the case, here’s hoping though it’s just a little misunderstanding. However, when they’re asking $1500NZD, it’s not really that great of a concern. If you’re interested in it, I would suggest getting in relatively quickly as I can’t imagine it hanging about too long at that price. You can check out more of it here;
