Update 062313

Nick has now confirmed that this Futuro has been moved to Rangiora, New Zealand; a town some 30 km or so north of Christchurch.



Update 031813

I heard from Nick McQuoid, owner of the Kaimaumau Futuro, this morning. Nick is in process of relocating the Kaimaumau Futuro; I do not know where she is going but Nick was kind enough to send me some photos that show the process of disassembly. The photos can be seen to the left. Thanks Nick.



Update 071512

A day or two ago I was contacted by the Futuro's new owner, Nick McQuoid. Nick, who hails from Rangiora had been looking for a Futuro for a couple of years but [I am guessing like many who would love to be the proud owner of a Futuro] he was suffering "sticker shock" at the astonishing amount of money wanted for some examples. Then he found this "bargain" and hence the very quick sale. Of his new Futuro Nick says this:

She needs a bit of work to bring her back to her former glory, but over all shes in amazing original condition

Nick also kindly sent me all of the pictures you see to the left. So - a big thank you Nick - Enjoy your new home and your new Futuro.



Update 070712

Thanks to a follow up from Sarah Horth of "Retromania - all things retro and vintage in New Zealand" I can now confirm that the Futuro, along with the house and land was a package deal. Furthermore it apparently sold within days of going on the market. One lucky buyer as far as I am concerned! Thanks so much for the additional information Sarah.



Original Information 062312

Browsing the web recently searching for Futuro "stuff" I happened across the Blog "Retromania - all things retro and vintage in New Zealand" and an April 2012 post which was about a Futuro for sale in New Zealand. To be honest I am not sure if the Futuro itself was for sale or if the property upon which it sat AND the Futuro were for sale and in any case I am assuming it has since sold because the sale listings appear to have gone.

I have not been able to find any other information about this Futuro so if you know anything or have images I could use please do let me know.

Sources & Reference
Got new, updated or corrected information or an image I could use?

I am always looking for additional information, history, details, images, videos; just about anything Futuro I guess - if you would like to contribute please use the Futuro Contact Form at the bottom of the main article or email me.

As far as images go I am particularly interested in those that are either significantly better than the ones already on this page or show a different aspect or detail. If you own an image meeting one or both of those criteria I would love to be able to use it on this page but I will simply provide a link if that is your preference. Where permission is granted to use an image on the page appropriate attribution will be provided by means of a link to the original image, a link to a website of your choosing or both.
