1977 Holden Torana A9X sells short of $1 million target but sets record for the model

A rare and immaculate 1977 Holden Torana A9X sold short of its $1 million target price at auction at the weekend, but it set a new record for the breed. One of just 33 Holden Torana A9X road cars specially-built to be eligible for motor racing – known as a GMP&A model – went under the hammer for $775,000, but the buyer paid in excess of $833,000 once the 7.5 per cent auction fee was included.

Peter Brock’s daily driver sells for $1.057 million, sets auction record for a Holden road car

An iconic 1985 Holden Commodore V8 owned by late motor racing legend Peter Brock – and used as his daily driver – has been sold in a Grays Online auction overnight for $1.057 million, a record amount for a Holden road car. The final sum – $1,057,509 not including the additional 7.5 per cent auction fee – fell just short of the current auction record for an Australian-made road car, $1.15 million for a 1971 Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III set in February 2021.

Holden: Commodore V8 prices soar one year on from the shutdown announcement

There was a time Holden had to discount its V8s to shift them off the showroom floor, now some are fetching close to or more than $1 million. It’s amazing what scarcity does to the price of a car – and how we never truly value something until it’s gone. Since US car giant General Motors announced the axing of the Holden brand on this day 12 months ago, enthusiasts have gone nuts paying top dollar for pristine examples of cars they once could only dream about.

The campaign – supported by RMIT University students in Melbourne – uses some of Holden’s most famous photos from its media archives and places them in modern day settings with the help of Google Maps.
