GTS 350 comprehensively breaks $300k barrier

Big result for Monaro at Lloyds
This beautifully presented GTS 350 pulled big numbers.

Lloyds biggest classic car auction of its monthly series today pulled solid bidding.

The headline act was the final lot, a 1970 Holden Monaro GTS 350 auto, matching numbers, low miles and exceptionally well-presented after a comprehensive restoration. Competition was very tough among bidders, starting online at over $180,000 and finishing up at $310,000 after a protracted battle.

A rare XW GT-HO auto, one of just a few made, pulled plenty of interest and settled at $165,000.

At the other end of the Aussie value scale was a tidy-looking VC Commodore six with auto, that went for $6300. Just $100 more scored a 1990 VT Clubsport manual - a lot of car for the money. Also a good value win was a clean 1984 WB Statesman at $16,400.

In the midrange a 1967 HR panelvan pulled strong bidding, finishing at $22,500, just a touch below reserve.

Holden SS Group As are still looking strong, with a 1990 VN attracting $62,000.

The Ferrari Testarossa went for $175,000, good buying when compared to international prices. Another solid buy was lot 30, the 1972 Charger with a 265 at $29,000.

Arguably the most interesting lot was a 1937-39 Maserati tribute, beautifully finished, which fetched $73,500.
