Four Ford GTs and a Charger round out the Aussie muscle car pack

A 1970 HG Monaro claiming matching numbers and largely original condition is the headline act for this Saturday's Lloyds auction at Essendon, Vic.

Early Monaros have been hot property on the auction circuit in recent months, with prices proving to be volatile.

The same event features four 1970-71 Ford GTs in various guises, including a GT-HO tribute. It's an unusual cluster of machinery to have on offer in the one place and presents an interesting choice for the blue oval fan.

A white 1970 XW, lot 28, appears to be the pick of them and is comfortably leading the bidding.

For Mopar lovers the peach may turn out to be the 1977 CL 770 Charger with 265 Hemi and four-speed manual, said to have undergone a recent rebuild.

Though Australian cars dominate the 44-strong catalogue, there is a smattering of American, Japanese and European marques among them. See the full list here.
