Pickles’ Luxury Vehicle auction in Sydney will take place from Monday November 26 at 6:30pm, and offer a fleet of modern luxury vehicles from a variety of marques.

Amongst the somewhat standard executive German saloons however, there are a few hidden gems that caught our eye.

Namely, a very early Porsche 356SC with virtually no kilometres on it (11,729kms indicated on the odometer) and in what looks to be stunningly pristine condition.

The 1964 Porsche 356SC featured the uprated 1.6lt single carburetted engine, and is one of the most desirable models in the 356 lineage that started the Porsche legend.


The 356 C-series arriving in 1964 was the final iteration of the 356, and featured disc brakes both front and rear, and the SC pushrod engine – at the time – laying claim as Porsche’s most powerful engine to date.

The car is finished in a gentlemanly light ivory over black leather trim – and should be a blue-chip collectible for years to come given the meteoric rise of vintage Porsches.

Another vintage offering comes in the form of a 1975 Datsun 260Z.


Old Z cars are one of the most desirable vintage Japanese cars, and while this deep green example isn’t the 240z hero car and bears the lesser-desired 2+2 roofline, it’s the next best thing and won’t break the bank.

It’s low mileage, with 89,476kms indicated on the odometer, and looks to be in great condition.

Flying the locally made flag are a number of late-model limited-production HSVs, but the standout for us is the 1980 HDT VC Brock.


Specified with the desirable four-speed manual, and in Palaris White; the car bears 125,431kms on the odometer and is number 348 of the 500 built.

Both the 260Z and HDT VC Brock both appear to be the same vehicles formerly offered on behalf of the Gosford Classic Car Museum. They were previously listed on our site by Gosford for $29,000 and $85,000 respectively.
