Eight very collectible cars on offer

Bidding is underway for eight very desirable cars – seven of them prime Aussie muscle – via Slattery Auctions in Perth. And it looks as though people are not shy about splashing some cash on them.

Lot 2 is 1977 Holden A9X hatchback, one of 100 built and said to be one of only two in the Supermint livery. Bidding has reached $330k.

Lot 4 is a late 1971 HQ Monaro, with 350 V8 and four-speed manual. This one is listed as being a candidate for a restoration and comes with a long list of new parts. Bidding had reached $100k.


Lot 5 is a 1972 Chrysler E49 Charger, complete with the 265 straight six and triple Webers, and four-speed manual. This one has been restored, claims zero kays since, and bidding has reached $95k.


Lot 6 is a 1972 Holden Torana LJ GTR XU-1, with the 3.3lt straight six and four-speed manual. This one is described as being in good rather than concours condition. Bidding has reached $81k.


Lot 7 is a 2017 HSV Maloo GTSR. It's a six-speed manual with just 20km showing and is getting strong interest. Bidding has reached $125k.


Finally we have lot 8 and we move to Japan with a 1975 Datsun 260Z. It has the 2.6 litre straight six and five-speed manual and has undergone a restoration. Bidding has reached $36k.
