Iconic Holden to Break Auction Records

An iconic matching numbers 1968 Holden HK GTS Monaro 327 Bathurst Coupe will be going under the hammer at Lloyds Auctions this Saturday and is set to reach a record price.

This is a true-blue unrestored survivor car with mostly original paintwork and completely original interior and genuine matching numbers.

“This is an iconic vehicle that all Aussies love and it will only continue to increase in value as they become harder to find,” said Mr. Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctions.

The Monaro is indicating just over 57 thousand miles on the clock and is fitted with the 327 V8 engine finished in Silver Mink.

“We have had an extreme amount of enquiry for this spectacular classic, it is the most anticipated car of the auction, and we expect that it will reach record prices of around $500k,” continued Mr. Hames.

Back in October 2020 a similar Holden Bathurst Monaro sold for $320,000 at auction whilst a Bathurst Raced HT Monaro 57D sold for $750,000 back in June 2020.

This Monaro has also been verified by ICAARS and comes with the verification certificate.

Also going under the hammer on Saturday is almost 400 other classic cars.

The community can expect the usual Holden vs Ford showdown as well as a bit of American muscle and European classics.

Some showstoppers include the 1 of 1 1979 Holden VH SL/E Factory Prototype which was uncovered from beneath a dust sheet in Country Victoria and is believed to be the only one left in the world and a 2003 Lamborghini L147 Murcielago for those who like a bit of class.

“It’s going to be a massive auction with a lot of rare and unique vehicles going under the hammer, you don’t want to miss this,” said Mr. Hames.
