A9X, Monaros & Mazdas dominate Lloyds results
Prices on A9X Toranas show no sign of softening.

Hero Holdens dominated the bidding for today's Lloyds classic car auction.

It was the Torana A9X hatchback with matching numbers and logbooks that pulled the top bid at $250,000 - a little shy of reserve, but it seemed likely to find a resolution.

Meanwhile there were four premium Monaros: $220k was bid for an HK 327 which remains under negotiation; $160k for a superbly-built HG GTS 350 tribute; $57k for a nicely-presented HQ LS (under negotiation); And $200k for an HT GTS 350 (under negotiation).

For Ford fans the headliner was a 1978 XC Cobra coupe, fetching a very solid $121,000.

A trio of early Mazda RX series cars went under the hammer, scoring impressive results. An RX2 attracted $17,500, while an RX3 pulled $40,000. Top price of $50,000 went to an RX3 with several modifications, including 13B Bridgeport engine, 5-speed manual and an RX7 interior.

Bargain hunters had a pretty good day, with several solid cars going for under $10k. The stand-out for us was a 1966 VC Valiant bash car for $7100.
