Record price for HG Kingswood

The premium lot at todays Lloyds classic car auction  an ex-Dick Johnson Falcon hardtop racer  pulled a very respectable $340,000, rounding off an event that generated plenty of interest.

Without question the big surprise was the $53,500 bid for a Holden HG Kingswood, with 186 motor and three-speed manual. It was an exceptional example, which was reflected in the fierce bidding.
