Dream no longer as rare cars go up for sale
ON Monday classic car fanatics have the chance to bid to own possibly one of Australia's rarest cars.
It's a one-off, factory-built, six-door 1970 XY Ford Falcon.
Lloyds Auctions chief operations officer Lee Hames says the car "embodies collectability and could be the rarest car ever manufactured in Australia".
"It's the holy grail for Ford fans, the only one of its kind and it is in immaculate condition."
It was made-to-order by Ford for TAA Airlines in Tasmania and used originally as a courtesy car/limousine.
The car has won numerous awards and featured in Australian car magazines.
"It has received great attention already, with enquiries flooding in since being published online," Mr Hames adds.
Bidding will start at just $1.
Other classic cars up for auction from Monday are include matching number cars.
These include a 1982 Holden Commodore Group III in original and meticulous condition, a 1977 4-door Holden A9X Torana which has sat in storage for 15 years and a 1970 Holden HG Monaro GTS at Bathurst Monaro specifications.
The auction also features a multiple podium finishing race car chassis built and run by Walkinshaw Andretti United Racing and driven by the likes of Courtney and Tander.
The VF Chassis, WR 021, is approved to run in the Super 2 racing series presenting an easy opportunity to experience motor racing with a current and well-respected race car.
"This time last year we auctioned Scott Pye's #2 Supercar (Chassis 24), which went on to place second at Bathurst, and no doubt we'll see strong interest in this VF chassis opportunity from upcoming motorsport enthusiasts," Mr. Hames says.
"This car has earned multiple podium finishes since 2014 and apart from its investment potential, offers a unique opportunity for anyone who has dreamed of touring as a race car owner."
Also being sold are Lamborghinis, Ferrari's, Shelby Eleanor's, Blue Meanies and more all starting from $1.
The online bidding opens at 6pm at lloydsauctions.com.au/classic-cars.
