CSK spotted in Auckland, New Zealand...

Saw a CSK today, in the motorway slow lane of all places! Driving past Ellerslie Railway Station.

I was pulling some fibre optic cables through ducting under the platform looked up and there it was. Looked mint. Registration number prefic was 'RF'.

Awesome, they really do get about :)

I know that Australia had a 4 door special also badged as CSK but nice to hear of a proper CSK out in NZ.

RF would put the date of original rego as late 1990 or 1991 as this prefix was issued in Auckland about that time. I think about 4 CSK's ended up in NZ. This could be the CSK that is now in Darfield.

I saw this CSK again today, it was just off Ponsonby Road in Auckland. I got all the details except the CSK number (I was almost home when I remembered; I was tempted to go back and get it). The registration card says it came into NZ during 1992.


Automatic gearbox btw, done about 170 000 KMs. Looks like it is in daily use. With a bit of detailing it could come up nice.

I had my 1990 Plymouth Blue Vogue parked next to it, made a good pair, would look even better in my garage.

As I have Emailed the forum already,I have it on good authority that at least 10 CSK's came to NZ.
One was rolled early on and recently appeared on T/M
with a seventies (or eighties) body.
I have tracked down seven, of which three are in Christchurch.
I own #125(nearly Concours)

CSK 054 is now in Darfield, New Zealand. My earlier post that it was 1** was incorrect. Plate inside says 054. Registered new in NZ 1991

Just an update on this CSK...

It is CSK #42.

Whenever I'm in Ponsonby I see it parked in the same carpark looking sad and exposed to the elements. It looks like someones daily hack. I see it and while seeing a CSK makes my day, little bit of me dies inside.
