We take a look at some of the highlights from recent car auctions around the world

1966 Ford Falcon Club Coupe

Sold: $12,400
Barrett Jackson

How's this for rare! Although it looks identical to an XR Falcon look closely and you’ll see it only has two doors. Damn shame it never made it here. Anyway, this blue beauty has a mere 43,000 original miles on its 170ci 6-cylinder engine, bolted to a three-speed manual. Very original it comes with books and retains many of its unique markings including the dealer sticker and factory dog dish hubcaps. It comes with the original sales agreement and maintenance records.

 

1966 Triumph TR4A

Sold: $31,900
RM Sotheby's

The Michelotti-penned TR4A was one of Triumph's most popular sports cars and sadly not many came to Australia. Unsurpisingly the UK seems to have an abundence of them including this smart loking one that sold for a bargain price. This lovely 1966 model, sent to San Francisco when new has a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate and was given a resto in 2012, retaining its signal red paintwork and black leather upholstery. It has a removable hardtop and completing the picture, chrome wire knock off-wheels.

 

1958 Studebaker Golden Hawk

Sold: $85,400
Barrett Jackson

Love the fins that define a 50s Yank Tank. A 289ci Sweepstakes overhead-valve V8 powers this superb 1958 Park Green Studebaker Golden Hawk with a McCulloch supercharger giving it 275hp that would get your attention. Mated to an upgraded 3-speed Flightomatic auto trans. It was given a frame-up restoration including a mechanical overhaul. It was with the one family until 2014.

 

1982 Holden Dealer Team VH Commodore

Sold: $2.1M
Lloyds

Built by Brock’s Holden Dealer Team, this is the winning car of the 1982 Hardie-Ferodo 1000 driven by Peter Brock and Larry Perkins. In 1983 it became John Harvey’s car with Brock pedalling a new car for the season. Come Bathurst and as John Harvey finished his first stint, Brock commandeered it after his car had failed. It gave Harvey his only Bathurst 1000 victory. Amazing history. Equally amazing was the $2 million achieved at another auction for a super rare Phase IV Falcon XA GT-HO.
