Aussie, American, Euro & Japan do well

The Shannons classic auction that concluded last night had good news for owners of high-quality cars, regardless of origin, however there were still a few value buys in there.


1965 Holden HD X2.jpg


Headlining the surprises was the big money thrown at a 1965 HD Holden X2 Premier (lot 152), which finished up at $120,000. It was an exceptional low-mile example and this represents a new price level for the model.


2004 Ford GTP FPV.jpg


Later-model Aussie cars got solid money. A 2004 Ford FPV GT-P (lot 145), build number 001, in good but not perfect shape scored $61,500 and looked like solid buying as a future classic. 


2009 Holden Commodore VE HDT.jpg


Similarly, a nicely-presented 2009 Holden HDT Group A retro sedan (lot 147) went for $66,500.


1968 Jaguar E-Type.jpg


Across the Atlantic and a 1968 series 2 Jaguar E-type 2+2 (lot 142) went for a remarkable $220,000.


1973 BMW 3.0 CS.jpg


From Germany, we saw a 1973 BMW 3.0CS auto (lot 110) fetch $110,000.


1974 BMW E3.jpg


On the more affordable end of the scale, a tidy and relatively rare 1974 BMW E3 3.0lt sedan (lot 106) went for $22,000. 


1967 Shelby Mustang GT350.jpg


After enduring fairly quiet times, owners of American cars saw some action. At top the top of the price tree was a Shelby GT350 Fastback (126) that went for $350,000.


1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1.jpg


That performance was backed up by a very nice S-code Mach 1 with a 390 (lot 125) going ror $172,500.


1968 Toyota Corona 1600.jpg


Arguably the most intriguing of the Japanese cars was a 1967 Toyota Corona 1600 GT-5 (lot 132) which fetched $38,000.


2002 Mazda FD3S RX7.jpg


Meanwhile a 2002 RX-7 Spirit R (lot 134) sold for $125,000.
