New round of Holden and Ford muscle cars to sell for millions

Two big collections of Australian muscle cars will go under the hammer in the coming weeks, with two expecting to fetch in excess of $500,000 each.

Two of Australia’s largest collectible vehicle auction houses are putting more than 500 muscle cars under the hammer in the coming weeks – with a total combined value of more than $13 million.

Within the listings is prized metal, including an iconic 1988 Holden VL Group A Walkinshaw with just 15,667 kilometres on its odometer. As a price guide, another example – also sold by Lloyds Auctions – has expectations of fetching $1 million.

Also of note in the same Lloyds Auctions catalogue of 400 vehicles is a 2008 HSV W427 that’s travelled 2308 kilometres from new.

Powered by a 7.0-litre ‘LS7’ V8 that produced 375kW/640Nm, the W427 had the biggest engine ever fitted to an Australian-made production car.

Over in the Shannons catalogue of 120 curated vehicles, price guides range from $10,000 for a tidy 1998 Ford Falcon EL GLI to over $500,000 for a 1922 Delage CO2 Hispano-Suiza Aero engine Special.

The pre-war sports coupe – built by defunct French luxury marque Delage and powered by a historically-significant Hispano Suiza engine – is believed to be one of nine left in the world.

If you prefer later mode yet unique metal, a curiously right-hand drive 2000 Lincoln LS is being offered with a guide of $10,000-$15,000.

The Lloyds Classic Car auction ends on 29 January 2022, and the Shannons Sumer Timed Online auction on 22 February 2022.
