This HDT Magnum, based on a Statesman De Ville, would rate as one of the best in the country and was the subject of a feature in Unique Cars magazine.

In that story we noted: "It’s one of the joys and frustrations of buying a car like an HDT Magnum: trying to work out exactly what’s underneath the paint and how many were made.

"The thing is that HDT, at the stage this monster was built, could and would build whatever your little heart (and wallet!) desired. So whatever Magnum you own, there’s a good chance it’s just a little bit different to the one that came after it. We’re not talking production lines here."

The best estimate is that 114 were built. This example runs a 5.0lt V8 with HDT-modified Trimatic transmission.

One of its claims to fame was the car was test-driven and signed off by Peter Brock.

Located near Melbourne, it’s on the market at $98,000.
