Holden HT Monaro GTS 350 racer falls short at auction... but check out this mini doco - video

A slice of Australian motorsport history went under the hammer on the weekend, but fell short of expectations. The 1969 Holden HT Monaro GTS 350 was the first HDT race-prepped car by legend Harry Firth and was raced by Kevin Bartlett and Spencer Martin. The very special coupe was expected to fetch a seven-figure sum at the auction held in Essendon. The final winning bid came well short, but at $500,000 on the dot, the sellers will hopefully find reason to smile.
