A9X hatchback stars

Tonight's Shannons Sydney auction pulled some healthy numbers for sellers, with strong interest shown across the range.

Top bid for the night was $595,000 for a Ferrari Dino (lot 71), however this was below reserve.

Meanwhile a Torana A9X hatchback (lot 70) pulled a very solid $275,000.

An exceptional survivor one-owner HK Monaro (lot 68), with 186ci six and auto, pulled $86,000  a lot more than it cost new, even allowing for inflation.

Interest in good RX-7 Mazdas continues unabated, with an SP (lot 69) selling for a hefty $112,000.

Numberplates also scored well, with very solid prices.
