1985 HDT VK Group A

Holden -vk -brock -commodore

Sold: $121,000
Lloyds, Carrara, Qld

Build number 482 of 502 in Formula Blue was always going to be a big draw for Lloyds and so it proved, and this matching numbers car with a full certificate of authenticity sailed well into six figures. This Blue Meanie featured a four-speed LM0M21 manual box and was sold with a massive documentation file including a complete build sheet and all log books.

1984 HDT VK SS

Hdt -vk -ss -commodore

Sold: $61,500
Shannons, Melbourne

A slice of Pure Eighties, this HDT VK SS will twang the heart strings of a fair few of you, and bidding was strong for this Alpine White example. Although Group A and Group 3 cars will attract the big money, the SS can be a Brocky bargain. This car has the 4-speed manual rather than the desirable 5-speed Borg Warner T5 option, and the hammer fall wasn’t far short of opening book on a Group 3 at Shannons’ palatial new auction house.

1972 Pontiac GTO

Pontiac -gto

Sold: $52,800
Mecum, Los Angeles

This really doesn’t seem a lot of money for a factory tri-power car that’s had a frame-off restoration and which presents in such stunning condition. The Yorktown Blue paintwork makes a change from the sea of black GTOs and the interior looks just as good. Ubiquity somewhat hurts GTO values in the US, but the definitive muscle car is attainable for those without a bottomless budget.

1964 Austin Healey 100M 'Le Mans'

Austin -healey

Sold: $278,000
RM Sotheby's, Paris

So, what’s so special about this Le Mans version of the Austin Healey 100M? Well, only 640 were ever made, which makes it a big deal. It’s had a full  restoration in the UK totalling over $100k and this Black over Reno Red example is a genuine matching numbers OCD special, sold complete with new Everflex hood, tonneau cover, copper and Thor hammer, and wooden-eared spanner, grease gun, original owner’s manuals, service manuals and sales brochures.
