1969 HT HDT Holden Monaro 350

Sold: $500,000
Lloyds Auctions

This is the car that started it all for Harry Firth’s Holden Dealer Team. Driven by Kevin Bartlett and Spencer Martin at the 1969 Sandown 300, brake failure led to a fiery crash.

However, 57D was used to homologate several changes to the HT Monaro which resulted in success for Colin Bond and Tony Roberts at the Bathurst 500.

1976 Ford Falcon XB GT

Sold: $100,000
Lloyds Auctions

Ford -falcon -xb -gt

With just 27,796 kilometres from new, this immaculate and unrestored Pepper Red 351 manual XB GT really was one out of the box.

Considered by the experts as the best unrestored Falcon GT in the country of any model, it even wore its original Olympic Reflex tyres. One of the last XBGTs to be made, it is a multi-award concourse winner and sold with its original books and documents. A true once in a lifetime opportunity.

 

1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429

Passed in: $300,000
Lloyds Auctions

American muscle car prices have been flat over the past year, but sought-after models like this 1969 Boss 429 Mustang still attract good interest.

With a manual box coupled to the big V8, this one had just 31,642 miles showing on the clock and had undergone a complete nut and bolt resto.

 

1970 AMC Rambler Javelin Coupe

Sold: $34,075
Mossgreen Auctions

Amc -rambler

The AMC Rambler Javelin was one of the breeds most highly-regarded muscle cars and assembled in Port Melbourne by AMI. Now very rare and sought after, the Javelin sported a 5.6-litreV8, three-speed auto, power steering and slippery diff. Only 258 were produced over four years. Finished in Bronze with an off-white vinyl trim, black dash board trim and carpets, this original example presents well.

 

One to watch on the block:

1970 Ford XW Falcon V8 ute

Shannons Melbourne Spring Classic Auction
Monday 25 September, 7:00pm

Estimate: $30-38,000

Falcon -xw -ute

Although Ford never made GT or HO utes, they did make a V8. This partially restored Reef Green XW is a genuine factory model, built in June 1970 with a Windsor 302 V8 and top loader 4-speed manual gearbox. Showing 74,354 miles on the clock, with just 3000 miles covered over the past four years, the resto saw it wearing 12-slot wheels and Falcon GT striping. Inside are black bucket seats and a Falcon GT console but a standard dash. It doesn’t have aircon, the windows are manual and there is no power assistance to the steering.
