If anyone is really into classic Bronicas, Tony Hilton, author of one of few books on the system, is selling his collection used to illustrate the book, so it is quite extensive and very well documented--

A few highlights are a Primarflex, which was the original 6x6 rollfilm SLR that inspired Victor Hasselblad to develop his camera, culiminating in the Bronica Z (Mr. Zenzaburo's first model), of course. There's an original Bronica Z with original lenses and accessories, and the later DeLuxe model, which preceded the S.

I use a Bronica Chrome ETR and a Bronica Chrome S. Both are wonderful cameras, it's a shame to see them drift off into the sunset.
