Recent auction highlights from around the world...


1988 BMW E30 M3 Evo 2 coupe

Sold: $94,000

This M3 EVO2 is number 264 of just 500 built for racing. A private import with 70,572 miles showing it has been converted to a right hooker here in Oz.

According to the ad material it underwent a thorough refurbishment inside and out with the engine rebuilt, wheels restored, new paint, new headlining and repairs to the leather with checked cloth-insert seats.


1999 Subaru Impreza WRX STI coupe

Sold: $86,000


WRX and Colin McRae fans were bidding strongly at the prospect of owning this two-door World Rally Championship homologation special. Apparently this STI coupe is like new with just 18,643 kms on the clock. Finished in iconic Subaru Rally Blue with gold alloys, at the height of Subaru’s global WRC dominance the STi coupe was its ultimate weapon. Production was very limited globally and they are highly sought after. The vendor has had it since 2002 and for the buyer the hardest decision will be whether to shed it or take it out and enjoy it.


1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Twister

Passed in: A$249,000


Remember the game Twister? This has nothing to do with it in case you thought it was a dolled up marketing special after someone rifled through the parts bins, trying to cash in on the game. Only 96 Twister Specials were produced. All sold in Kansas and only in 1970. Based on the Mach 1, the Twister pack added the Ford drag pack suspension and either the Cobra Jet as in this one or the new 351ci Cleveland V8. Thirty four 428 Twisters are thought to exist today.


1965 Ford Falcon XP Deluxe sedan

Sold: $25,000


Restored a year ago and looking ultra cool on its lowered suspension, front sunvisor, rear wheel spats and venetian blinds this 1965 XP Deluxe Falcon has loads of presence and is ready to roll, according to the blurb. Falcons from the early 60s are both hard to find and gaining in value. Finished in In Springtime Yellow this example sports new red vinyl trim, new dash, new red carpets, new white headlining and new period-correct steering wheel.


1984 HDT Improved Brock VK SS

Sold: $35,000


Much sought after, the VK SS Commodore was built by Brock’s HDT mob. Finished in Alpine White with blue cloth trim it rides on geniune HDT AERO wheels.

Its HDT plate records it as SS 1565, built October 1984. It was delivered to its Victorian owner in November. The blurb states it has been sparingly driven since mid-1998. A bit of a bargain.
