1971 Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III sells for $400,000: 'attacked with an axe, no engine, bring trailer'

A 1971 Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III left to rot in a shed for decades – missing an engine and had been attacked with an axe – sold for a mind-boggling $400,000 at auction at the weekend. Bidding on Grays Online passed $200,000 within 24 hours of the undriveable vehicle being listed last week, but it was passed in on the weekend once bids reached $350,000, having not met its reserve price. However, negotiations after the auction saw the battered and bruised muscle car change hands for $400,000.

Barn find! VK “Blue Meanie” HDT Commodore found in a shed, could go for $200,000-plus

From collecting dust to collector’s item, a tidy-but-dusty example of a 1985 Holden Commodore VK Group A has been unearthed in a shed in Sydney after not turning a wheel for more than 20 years. Better known as the “Blue Meanie” – due to all 500 examples being presented in the same bright blue paintwork – this one is being offered online through Muscle Car Sales, who discovered the car in recent months.

Original BMW M3 sells for $US250,000

An immaculate first-generation BMW M3 in original condition has sold for $US250,000 ($AU350,000) on the popular US website Bring A Trailer. That price is more than double the cost of a brand-new current generation BMW M3 in Australia. The 1988 BMW M3 – a performance model originally developed for motor racing – had just 8000 miles (12,800km) on the odometer and a perfect service record. The advertisement for the car shows near-perfect red paint and an original tan interior.

Iconic 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Stradale to be auctioned

A rare 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Stradale is expected to fetch around AU$1 million when it goes under the hammer next week. Due to be auctioned by Bonhams on February 6, this example has only driven 3300 kilometres since new, and still has its original Alcantara seats and steering wheel – along with its original Italian documentation and books. The successful bidder will be the car’s third owner.
