James Courtney’s current Walkinshaw Andretti United Commodore

How incredible that during a celebration of 50 years of HDT, its Holden descendant, Walkinshaw Andretti United took a podium finish in the Great Race!

Even more exciting is that you could be the proud new owner of James Courtney’s current Walkinshaw Andretti United Commodore, Chassis number 23, which he drove to a 3rd place finish at Bathurst this year in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.

Chassis 23 made its race debut at Eastern Creek in 2016 with Garth Tander. It was previously used in 2017 by Scott Pye, including a Bathurst 1000 second place finish and once by James Courtney in 2018 at the Sandown 500.

You will find this rare opportunity to both own the car, and experience a Supercars race team, is the ultimate Christmas present that will never be beaten!

1954 Chevrolet Bel Air

This is a beach cruiser that is ready for summer! This eye-catching woody wagon features Mustang two disk brake system from Jim Majors and new glass headliner, carpet and tires.

Don’t miss your opportunity to own a piece of mint American Chevrolet history!

1957 Chevrolet 150

This beauty has had some work done! She has a received a full custom restoration including a body off chassis build.

Plus, the power from the Big Block Chevy 540 Supercharged engine is out of this world!

This Chevy is one for those who like old school class and style with the comfort and speed of modern features!

1967 Mustang fastback Shelby Eleanor GT500 Restomod

We have a highly desirable Shelby that must be seen to be believed!


This iconic car, made famous by the movie Gone in 60 Seconds, is powered by a strong 302 stroked to 347 that gets up and goes running through a C4 Auto gearbox with B & M Shifter.

It features correct Shelby GT500 badging, genuine Shelby alloy wheels and Eleanor World Registry compliance (Build 390).

This car is a true show stopper that sounds incredible and is in excellent condition inside and out!

1923 Model T Ford

This is a car with a few stories to tell!

This T Ford coupe, with ute body and cover, has been on Club registration and is all set up for long distance travel with 3 to 1 diff, Ruckstell axle, Rocky Mountain brakes and safety hubs.

It made its way around Australia 4 years ago between September and December and had a few adventures on the way raising over $22,000 for Angel Flight!

1978 Ford Falcon Cobra

This matching number car has been stored for the last 12 years! It’s time for this iconic Ford Falcon Cobra #201 to really be enjoyed.

With a modified 5.8 V8 engine that presents rust free, this Cobra would be the perfect present wrapped up under the tree!

1971 Nissan Skyline 2000GT

This clean and nicely maintained GT Hakosuka doesn’t need an introduction, the photos speak for itself.

This Skyline Hakosuka KGC10 GT comes with 2.8L modified engine and upgraded injection system, Watanabe 15’ deep dish wheels and upgraded Solex carburettor.

This is one of the best classic 1971 Nissan Skylines we have seen and a rare Christmas opportunity for the collectors out there!

1977 Holden HX Premier

This is a very rare, special factory order Holden HX Premier from GMH Factory. With full matching numbers, this Premier is part of a very well known collection displayed at the WA motor museum.

With only one previous owner, it would have to be one of the best unrestored examples out there with nothing to spend making it ideal for those looking for their dream car to enjoy instantly these holidays.

1986 Holden Commodore VL Group A Plus Pack

This beast is a two owner, original car.

The motor was freshened up in 2010 and is as close to original specs as possible.

With HDT authentication, Dyno report as well as various other reports and receipts this is one for those who appreciate the finer details!

2005 Holden VZ Monaro

This would have to be one of the lowest odometers on a VZ in Australia… Only 1,778kms on the clock!

This stunner is completely original and by all means, still a brand new car.

This is a fantastic opportunity to own a car that will appreciate in value and must have for any serious Holden collection.

2017 Holden HSV VF Commodore GTSR

This breath-taking Holden has never been registered and has delivery kilometres only on the clock.

If this was your Christmas pressie you would be the first registered owner!

With an upgraded Alcantara steering wheel and gear knob, full sized spare wheel and genuine car cover with the build number embroidered on it, this car is absolutely flawless.

1988 Mercedes Benz 190E 25-16 Cosworth

This 190E 2.5-16 Cosworth is an extremely rare car in Australia and probably the best example of this model in Australia.

This award-winning Euro is in pretty much showroom condition with no real work needed to be done to it.

This isn’t your average street car and has been a “garage queen” for most of its life! With very low build numbers, racing heritage and now very few great examples left, the value of this classic will continue to rise in the coming years.

1936 Auburn 1936 Series

This 1936 Auburn boat tail speedster tribute is basically brand new with only 692 miles on the clock!

Carefully handcrafted in the Coachbuilder’s tradition by Auburn Speedster Motorcars Clearwater Florida in 2004, speedster motorcars blends yesterday’s classic design with today’s technology.

Every component is carefully handcrafted, with hand laid fibreglass construction with tubular cross member frame, plus a 5.3L Chevrolet Vortec engine matched with three speed auto transmission with overdrive.

What a beauty!

1970 Morgan PLus 8 Matching Number

This matching number Morgan R7219 was delivered new to the Morgan dealer, John Britten Garages, in the UK in RHD configuration which it has always retained.

The Morgan Plus 8 Mossbox cars are the earliest variant of the Plus 8s with a limited production run of only 484 cars from 1968-72.

To the vendor’s knowledge, there are only 4 of these cars in Australia and this is the only one unmodified and in factory RHD configuration!

They are said to be the most desirable of the Plus 8s because they have a lot of racing and touring event history that newer cars do not.

2002 Porsche 911 Carrera

The Porsche 911 has been an automotive icon and a sports car par excellence for over five decades.

This is one for someone who likes their cars well looked after! With logbooks and owner’s manual and a great service history, this gorgeous car has just got new tyres with its most recent service.

It is on its fourth owner and is looking for a new custodian to look after it as it has been accustomed to!
