Three generations of Group A dominate bidding

The star turn at today’s Lloyds classic car auction turned out to be a VK Blue Meanie Commodore, selling for $121,000.

Group A Commodores of various generations fetched the strongest competition. An ultra-rare VN Group A – a low miler – proved the next-gen cars are rising up the collector scale, fetching $88,000. That was followed quickly by a VL Commodore Group A at a very solid $84,500.

Meanwhile a 1972 Torana XU-1 got a top bid of $110,000 and was under negotiation.

Top bid for the day was $128,000 for a Lamborghini Gallardo L140 – also under negotiation.

Perhaps the buy of the day was a very tidy-looking 1978 Ford LTD with a 351 in the snout for $12,500.

Torana buyers were spoiled for choice, with six examples on offer, including three SL/R5000s, which scored bids hovering around the $60k mark.
