This month's quirky, hard-to-find accessories for your classic car...


1. New Haven 30-hour car mirror clock


Classic watches and classic cars seem to be a thing nowadays, this rearview mirror combines both and is a beautiful item to add to your classy ride. They were a popular item dating back to the 1930s and I love the simplicity of the clock face. 

COST US$400 (approx A$548) plus shipping & GST


2. Helphos Spotlight/Deluxe Spot Lamp


This German made light is really a nifty accessory. Hugely popular with the VW crowd, the Helphos light mounts to your windscreen via suction and was referred to as the "eye of the car" the best part is it can be switched between cars unlike unity spotlights widely seen in the USA that had to be drilled and permanently mounted through your pillar or even your door!

COST US$195 (approx A$308) plus shipping


3. Arc automatic record changer


Before the days of 8-track players, reverbs, subwoofers and amplifiers, the king of cool when it came to car audio was an under dash car record player! This ARC unit stores 12 records internally and plays them without stopping, wow! Popular in the late 50s and early 60s this is your chance to secure a local item on offer at the next Shannon's timed online auction, Wed 11-18 November, 2020.

LOT 13 Estimate $1500 - $2000


4. LH/LX Torana NOS Quarter Panel


Since hatchback Toranas are absolute hot property I was excited to see a genuine RHS rear quarter panel on offer. If you want to solve that rusty or poorly repaired panel here is your chance to start fresh.
