Stay tuned, because we’ll be bringing you a roundup of all the rest next week!

Street Machine News 1963 Ford Galaxie Shannons


There are a few hefty Yank coupes on offer, including this beautiful Galaxie 500/XL convertible. It had a lick of paint under its previous owners, but the real drawcard for us is the rebuilt 390-cube FE powerplant under the huge bonnet.

Street Machine News Shannons Galaxie Engine


With fresh brakes, widened steelies, and a new power roof, it’s a hell of a lot of cars for the $30-$40k guiding range. Check out those twin pipes and beautiful taillights!

Street Machine News Shannons F 100 Side


With its sunvisor, color-matched steels and bench seat, this ’73 F100 epitomizes everything we love about American trucks. Sure, there’s no curved eight in the bay, though that means you have more options!

Street Machine News Shannons Spring F 100 1


Aussie-assembled, Wimbledon White Effie is original to boot, and apparently lived with the same owner from new until 2020.

Street Machine News Shannon's Pintoside


The Ford Pinto wasn’t exactly tough when it rolled off the line in the ’70s, but the former Milton Ade ‘Hockey’ racer is as good as they come. We featured the Pinto back in our Feb. 20 mag, shortly after Dan Kubler completed its restoration.

It packs a nine-inch with a Powerglide-connected 351 Clio and 4.55 gears, rolling big Hoosier 15×12 rubber.

Street Machine News 1936 Fordson Ten Shannons


For a Blue Oval kid on the opposite end of the power spectrum, how cute is this Fordson Ten-Ten? It’s a 1936 model that has undergone a complete resto, and runs an 1172cc side-valve powerplant for a top speed of around 65 km/h.

Street Machine News Shannon's Fordson Interior


Known as the E83W in the UK, these small utes saw WWII service as mobile canteens, fire tenders, and ambulances with a maximum payload of 500kg. We think it will be a beauty hauler of (relatively small) parts, or even a Hiabusa swap candidate for the truly extinct ones.

Street Machine News 1974 FORD P 5 LTD Shannons


The P5 LTD took the all-Australian luxury up a notch when it was introduced in 1973, built on a longer wheelbase than the ZF and ZG Fairlane. While the bodylines are certainly reminiscent of their XA-XB counterparts, these cars get killer flip-out headlights, a full-length taillight panel, tasteful woodgrain interior bits, and the standard 351. This car has only had two owners, and apparently the same mechanic since new.

The Clio is matching and reportedly unopened, and the interior shows some wear and tear, as does the early 2000s paintwork.

Street Machine News 1969 Ford Falcon XW GT Shannons


Here’s a rough-and-ready example of one of the last 351 Windsor-powered GT Falcons. The XW is a true GT, finished in reef green with black vinyl. It has copped a few shocks and tweaks over the past half-century, including a repainted front guard, new antenna, spoiler, and black-painted scope.

Street Machine News Shannons XW GT Engine


With a price range of $90-$110k, the XW can be a great driver without having to worry about every stone chip.

Street Machine News 1988 Ford GT 40 Replica Shannons


The Shannons say this GT40 replica was built by NZ’s Frank Vig around 1988, and shipped across the ditch shortly after. The owner improved the car’s torsional stiffness before competing in the Targa Tasmania and other high-speed events.

Street Machine News Shannons GT 40 Engine


The small-block Ford Dank is said to make around 425 hp and, happily, it’s mated to a five-speed ZF manual box that operates a right-hand shifter. The paint job, interior, wheels and engine are a bit sharp, but that adds to the racer’s durability.

Street Machine News 1990 Hsv Vn Commodore Group A Ss Sedan No 073 5


Rounding out the list of Holdens is this suitably immaculate VN SS Group A, number #073 of 302 produced, showing just over 10,000km of fading.

Street Machine News 1990 Hsv Vn Commodore Group A Ss Sedan No 073


Being such a low mileage example, there is no restoration work to speak of, all the original paperwork is still present and there is a proper Certificate of Authenticity to keep any collector happy.

There are also a number of chrome bumpered Holdens in this auction, including this Cambridge Blue 1968 HK Monaro.

Street Machine News 1969 Holden HK Monaro


This baby is in absolute poverty, with a 161ci red motor, three-on-the-tree box and drum brakes all around.

Street Machine News 1968 Holden Hk Monaro Coupe


Decked out in Cambridge Blue with Buckskin Beige trim, the HK looks a treat thanks to a subtle attitude adjustment and rear window venetian.

One car that is far from basic is the Nitrate Silver 2008 HSV W427. It has a build number of #58 and has just over 21,000 km of work under its belt.

Street Machine News 2008 HSV W 427


Looking at things when the GFC was in full swing, HSV sold buggers, so they’re a bloody hot ticket these days, thanks largely to that monster 7.0-litre LS7 under the bonnet. The seller is the first and only owner of the car, so it comes with all the original equipment for whoever takes it home.

It wouldn’t be a classic car auction without HQ, and this fully restored ’73 GTS Monaro is a sight to behold.

Street Machine News 1973 Holden Headquarters GTS Monaro


This car is rocking 308 power like it did brand new, and with an auto box. Upgrades during the resto include power steering, retractable seat belts and a sneaky sound system. This, combined with the correct houndstooth interior and Glacier White hue, makes it a great cruiser.

A two-door LJ Tourana is a spicy prospect in any guise these days, but the juxtaposition with a possible link to some HDT history is definitely worth checking out.

Street Machine News 1972 Holden LJ Torana GTR


The car has a checkered history that points to the days of HDT’s rally programs, but excavation by the current owner has pointed in all different directions to its apparent origin story.

Street Machine News 1973 Holden Lj Torana Gtr Xu 1 Ex Hdt Rally Car Sedan 2


Regardless, it’s still a CAMS-logbooked LJ racer that’s had a major restoration recently in its life, so it could be a perfect fit for someone who wants a classic Torana without the actual $300,000 minter. of the risk of curbing the XU-1.

Love the HDT Spec VK but feel the Blue Mini thing is a bit played up? Then this ’85 Group 3 HDTV KSS should do just fine.

Street Machine News 1985 Holden Commodore VK SS Group 3


It’s a one-owner bargain that shows 137,000 clicks and features a full service history, including a major overhaul of the original 5.0-litre V8 in 2013.

Street Machine News 1985 Holden Commodore Vk Ss Group 3 Sedan


The rest of the car has not been restored and is in really good nick, and you know what they say about them being original just once.

Did someone say Panama Green? Being one of the 307 A9X SL/R 5000s already sets this ’77 LX apart, but the original color (now repainted) is a Kermit-themed cherry on top.

Street Machine News 1977 Holden Torana A 9 X SLR


The sunroof is said to have been fitted by the dealer before delivery when it was new, and is showing just 120,000km on the odo.

Street Machine News 1977 Holden Lx Torana A 9 X Slr 5000 Sedan


This popular FJ Special is packing some very cool, old-school upgrades. Behind the stove-hot gray motor is a Rallye four-speed, which was one of the optional upgrades before the arrival of Australian four-speeds and other options in the 60s. The front bench is scalloped to clear the shifter, another cool old-school trick.

Street Machine News 1955 Holden FJ


The front end is also treated to a set of Ford Zephyr disc brakes, a rare change these days. The FJHT rides on a set of wide 14-inch rims with Holden caps.

With special chrome breaking up the blue doco and wood-rimmed Max Rob Taylor, we really dig what’s the highlight of the interior.
