July Classic Car Auction Recap

From the roar of V8 engines to the timeless elegance of European classics, July’s classic car auction was one not to be missed. The auction offered a diverse range of automotive masterpieces that catered to the preferences of all car enthusiasts. Let’s delve into some of the highlights from the auction.

We wouldn’t forget about the iconic 1969 Holden HT Monaro GTS. This is a well-presented Holden Monaro with matching numbers and a rare factory turquoise interior. This classic was owned by previous vendor for 25 years and has the dash signed by Peter Brock and has now found its new home selling under the hammer for $130,000.

Another classic that sold under the hammer was the 1959 Messerschmitt KR200. Finished in blue and indicating only 529 miles, you don’t see one of these everyday folks!

We all love a 1972 Ford Falcon GT Tribute Ute. Having an extensive restoration with components from an XY GT donor car, this classic was one not to be missed, selling under the hammer for $69,000.

And the 1974 Mazda RX-3. What a car! Fitted with the PAC performance GTX42 turbo and many other PAC performance accessories, this was one notable car from the auction.

We’re pleased to report that the classic car market value continues to ride high. According to the 2023 Knight Frank Index reports classic cars have returned 25% in the last year for investors and 185% over the last decade.

The fun doesn’t stop there folks, be sure to tune in to our next LIVE classic car auction on the 26th August from 10am.
