September Classic Car Auction Recap

As the gavel fell and the crowd cheered, another Classic Car auction passed us by for 2023. Collectors and car enthusiasts were treated to over 250 classic cars in September’s auction, with many showstoppers that were not to be missed. Let’s take a look at some of the standouts we had this month!

Kicking us off with the 1985 HDT VK SS Group A Blue Meanie! What a car this is folks. This was an extremely rare classic, once owned by Tony Lockett “Plugger” the highest goal scorer in the history of AFL. The Group A Blue Meanie is the most famous of all the Brock Commodores and is so respected today, enthusiasts will pay very high prices for top quality examples of the cars. Once retailing for $21,950 brand new, these cars are now achieving prices over $1 million for vehicles in pristine condition, and it is quite rare to see these cars at auction in conditions such as this one.

How could we forget about the 1984 Ferrari Mondial Series 8! Finished in the rare Oro Chiaro and believed to be only one of a few left in Australia. Selling under the hammer for $75,000.

You can never go wrong with a 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera. This was owned by the previous custodian for 8 years and was driven once a month to enjoy with other classic enthusiasts. It was always garaged and serviced and now gone on to its new custodian. Selling under the hammer for $111,000.

Also selling under the hammer was a genuine Bathurst spec 1972 Holden Torana GTR XU-1. In factory original condition finished in the rare zodiac blue and being a matching numbers car. This is a great example, and a rare find in today’s market, selling for $137,000.

Those are just a few of the sold classics that went under the hammer from 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 28th October from 10am. Don’t miss out!
