Auc­tion up­date

Australian Muscle Car - - News -

Anew Aus­tralian auc­tion record was set for a HK Monaro GTS 327 when a War­wick Yel­low ex­am­ple sold for $302,000 at Shan­nons’ Late Sum­mer Auc­tion in Melbourne. A pro­longed duel amongst floor, phone and on­line bid­ders saw the Monaro eas­ily out­strip its guid­ing range of $200-230,000.

wEqually im­pres­sive was the $92,000 paid for a re­stored Sil­ver Mink 1968 HK Monaro GTS 186S coupe, while a Tan­ger­ine 1973 HQ Monaro GTS 308 four-speed man­ual sedan made $60,500.

Strong re­sults were achieved by a trio of ‘Bathurst-in­flu­enced’ Com­modores: $81,000 paid for a 1988 HSV VL Walkin­shaw, $70,000 for a 1988 HDT VL SS Group A sedan and $61,500 for a 1984 VK HDT SS.

On the Ford side of the ledger, the stand­out was a 1972 Ford Es­cort Twin Cam 1600 coupe that had been faith­fully re­stored and went for $70,000.

Shan­nons’ next Melbourne auc­tion is sched­uled for May 8, while its Syd­ney ex­trav­a­ganza is set for May 22.
