In January someone dropped $1,100,000 on a Holden Maloo Ute, 1 of 4 special editions. That may sound like complete lunacy, but the motivation for prized items means they’re worth whatever the buyer is capable of funding. So, here we go again. This Saturday a rare Holden Torana A9X Hatch, 1 of only 33 ever built and with only 475km on the clock will no doubt go for gazillions.
Born To Race
This is not a road car, it was one of 33 build by Holden to race. The last Torana before the V8 Commodore era.
“This is the holy grail of Holden motor collector cars in Australia, since Holden closed their doors many muscle car enthusiasts are mourning the loss of performance cars, and there has since been a resurgence in these classic cars,” said Mr. Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctions.
“With the Holden prices weve seen achieved at auction in the last 6 months, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see this car break records once again,” said Mr. Hames.
Rare Holden’s Go Nuts
Over the last year we’ve seen the final Holden off the production line sold for $750,000. A Harvey A9X Torana sold for $910,000 plus the record breaking $1,100,000 dropped on the Maloo Ute.
The 33 A9X 33 shells were made for teams in 1977. They’re double seam welded, all painted white and were sold exclusively through the General Motors Parts division.
