Hey VG,

         Feel free to join http://www.tercel4wd.com where domestic and foreign owners of Tercel 4wd's and Sprinter Carib, Corsa and Tercel 4wd sedans can meetup and get technical advice on those cars. I'm already a member and you might notice I have the same username here that I do there. Check it out. 

 

       I hope to see a pic of a DLX model for NZ with a pic of its manufacturers plate.

 

      I am trying to locate, though as I said before, someone in NZ who owns any of the market-specific model-specific sales and accessories brochures for NZ of these cars. If you know of anyone who might, please hit me up soon. I am also a big Hobbit fan since that also took place in New Zealand haha.

Best Regards

Here is a NZ new one that I spotted this year. The owner is local and has had it from new, her grandchildren go to the same school as my kids. If I see her around I'll ask her on your behalf.

@terceldude hello Sir, I sold this car over 5 years ago, so am unable to help with the pics and info you are after sorry. Ive never seen another since I sold this one, they are pretty rare in NZ now I guess, and I don't know where to find info on the NZ ones. I can't even remember if mine was NZ new or a Jap import tbh.

Hi VG, your Tercel is NZ new https://www.carjam.co.nz/car/?plate=np3201

 

Glad to see someone so enthusiastic about these fine vehicles

You think that owner may have sales and accessories brochures for it? Thanks very much! You'd be my hero if you found those!

Any luck yet mate? thank you very much! If not, is there anyone else you could try in NZ? Thank you again and please be safe about it, pandemic-wise!

It's school holidays here, realistically I see her every 6 months or so, and despite her having a tidy Carib the chances she has original promo material are slim. @ajg193 might have a contact at Toyota NZ?

Tried that and a lady there claims one of the brochures I own is an NZ general one. I also tried https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/search?search_string=Toyota brochure&page=3 without much luck. I wonder if the guy auctioning the Celica brochure from 1986 might have one but because of TradeMe rules, I can't talk to him. Do you think you could on my behalf if not checking with that lady just to make sure? Thanks mate for all the help.

Anything from her/them yet Wildcat? Thanks. I learned that NZ is not doing too well currently in terms of vaccinations and I hope they get better so we can make this happen! 

 

VG, how are you doing these days? Do you plan to get another Tercel or Carib?
