April Classic Car Auction Recap

As engines roared and bids soared, vintage treasures found new homes, with the drop of the hammer, creating a tale of passion, nostalgia, and the timeless appeal of automotive craftsmanship. Join us as we embark on a journey through the highlights, the surprises, and the unforgettable moments in our April classic car auction.

We all love a Dodge Challenger, and this one did not disappoint. This 1973 Dodge Challenger is finished in the iconic colour plum crazy and sold under the hammer for $60,000 and is ready to be loved by the new custodians.

Another classic selling at the auction was the 1989 Ford Cobra AC Harrison. This beauty is finished in silver and is the perfect Sunday driver, selling for $80,000.

The next classic turning heads on the auction blocks was the 1987 Porsche 911 930 Turbo. This car was delivered new in America before being imported to Melbourne in 1989. Extensive work was completed by Bruce Canepa Motorsport in Santa Cruz California before it was converted to a RHD and complied by Hamiltons Porsche Melbourne after its arrival into Australia in 1989. This classic sold for $139, 500.

A matching number Chrysler Valiant is sure to turn heads, and this classic did just that. Finished in Vitamin C Orange, it was hard to miss this 1971 Chrysler Valiant VH Charger selling for $121,000.

Continuing with the history of Australian number plates, we had the Queensland heritage plate Q1962 go under the hammer and selling for $37,250. Congratulations to the new custodian!

Those are just a few sold lots from what was another very successful auction. As always, you will find our next LIVE classic car auction on the last Saturday of every month, the next one being Saturday 25th May from 10am. We will see you there!
