Would You Pay $300,000 For A Car From The 70’s?

If we were to tell you there is a car on the market that is expected to fetch $300,000, you’d expect it to fly… or at the very least be some sort of suped-up sports model.

Especially when you consider that the same amount could buy you a home.

But this car doesn’t fly and it isn’t about to feature in the next James Bond flick.

In fact, it’s more likely to have been featured in a home movie from the 70’s.


A 1970 HT GTS Holden Monaro is expected to break records when it goes under the hammer this weekend in Queensland.

The Aussie classic will be auctioned by Lloyd’s Auctions in Queensland on Saturday, with more than 160,000 potential buyers expected to tune in via live stream.

With just 119,000 kilometres, the car boasts a 5.7 litre V8 engine, two-speed power glide automatic transmission and twin air-scoops on the bonnet.


If you think the price is a little far-fetched, in January Lloyd’s sold a 1977 Torana for $260,000.
