Porsche 911E tops bidding at Shannons
This Porsche fetched over $300k

Last night's conclusion of the Shannons online Winter classic auction saw very solid money being paid for the prime lots and good prices for chrome bumper Australian family cars.

All but three cars out of a field of 65 were sold.

Top bid went to a 1971 Porsche 911E 2.4 (lot 147), at $308,500. Good money was also paid for a 1973 Jaguar E-type V12 roadster (lot 148) at $240,000.

The highest bid for an Australian muscle car went to a 1977 Torana A9X sedan (lot 138), at $235,000, but that wasn't enough to get it over the line.

Local family cars meanwhile got good money, with a 1974 Holden HQ Premier 308 (lot 133) fetching $50,000 and a 1960 Holden FB wagon (lot 98) in exceptional shape fetching $58,000.

There were some buys for the budget conscious as well: a 1985 BMW E28 528i (lot 86) went for $6000, while a 1949 Morris Minor (lot 125) found a new home at $8000.

If good solid value is your thing, we reckon two lots offered that: a 1977 Chrysler CL 770 Charger 265 manual (lot 135) went for $60,000, while a 1985 BMW E24 M6 (lot 143) went for $55,000. We suspect both will turn out to be good investments.

Motorcycles also did well, with a 1989 Yamaha OW-01 superbike homologation road bike (lot 84) selling for $42,500.
