Collectors’ Cars & Motorcycles

Mossgreen’s Inaugural Motorclassica auction saw a 1000 strong crowd gathered at the iconic Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne. There were 4 new Australian auction records set with a clearance rate of over 70%. The records include the 1960 Chevrolet Corvette C1 Dual Quad Roadster sold for $155,250; the 1969 Morris Mini Cooper S which sold for an astonishing $91,650; the 1951 Jaguar XK120 3.4 litre OTS which sold for $163,875 and the 1999 Subaru Impreza WRX STi Version 5 Coupe which sold for $76,375. The highest price achieved on the night was $241,500 for the superbly built 1958 Lister-Jaguar ‘Knobbly’ Replica Reconstruction.

Other notable sales included an exquisite 1932 Swallow Austin 7 Saloon, the last of its kind built, for $59,925. Strong prices were also achieved for two specials with Australian motor racing history: The “Uffindel” 1928 Austin 7 Special, which brought $52,250, was the first car to cross the start line at the first Australian Grand Prix held at Bathurst and the Sydney to Bourke record holding 1930 Ford Model A boat-tail going to its new owner for $44,650. The endearing pair of 1939 Harley-Davidson U models with side cars held together in single family ownership for 78 and 68 years sold to one buyer for $35,250 each. Number plate prices continued their recent upsurge with the right to display Vic 625 fetching $105,750.

This follows on from a great start to the year with the April sale which saw a clearance rate of 92%. Amongst these results, an unprecedented 7 out of 7 motorcycles sold with the highly sort after 1918 Indian Powerplus selling for $49,350.00. On the heels of this successful sale, 2 new auction records were achieved in Sydney on 28th May with the Ex Bob Morris 1977 A9X Holden Torana selling for $705,000 and NSW number plate “36” setting a new record for a double-digit plate starting with a 3 selling for $705,000.
