American car, 1958

Large American cars were rare in New Zealand in the 1950s. Most cars sold in New Zealand were assembled locally. Buyers had to have 'overseas funds' – money of their own held outside New Zealand – if they wanted to import a car. In this case the owner had been living in the United States with his family, and shipped the car back when they returned.
