1971 Holden HG Brougham 308 Sedan
Presented in white with a beige vinyl roof and parchment Brocade interior
this late-series Brougham displays just 101,989 miles on the odometer. It
is of course powered by the 308ci V8 motor coupled to a three-speed
automatic transmission. In the current ownership for the last 20 years it
is believed to have had only two owners from new and presents in a lovely
original condition with the interior showing minimal wear for the age of
the car. It retains its genuine factory radio and Holden towbar, Owner's
Manual and Service Book (however it is unmarked) and has been freshly
serviced in preparation for the sale. A rare chance to acquire a high-spec,
original Brougham in unrestored but highly usable condition, the Brougham
will be sold unregistered.
1965 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint Coupe
Purchased by the vendor at the Bonhams UK's Silverstone Classics auction in
July 2010, this fine example of the Bertone bodied 2600 Sprint is one of
only 597 factory built RHD Sprints recorded.
The expansive history file details restoration work by the renowned
Brookside Garage in the nineties, which was owned by former AROCA UK
Chairman John Dooley. At this point the chassis was stripped and re-painted
while the engine was also rebuilt. New brakes were also installed at this
time. Fast forward some ten years and the 2600 had only travelled a further
1000 miles before its owner decided to return it to its original
specification. The exterior was restored to its original Rosso Amaranto
finish and the interior was re-trimmed in black leather, with new
headlining and carpets. Around this time a set of Dellorto carbs replaced
the original Solex arrangement and electronic ignition was fitted whilst
new Michelin rubber encased genuine NOS hubcaps. Steering and suspension
components were also rebuilt where necessary. With receipts on file
exceeding $70,000 this 2600 Sprint has had the hard work done and is now
ready to enjoy. The receipt file includes copies of brochures and road
tests. The Alfa will be sold registered in Victoria until November 2011
with a Victorian Roadworthy Offered by the vendor after sale.
Allan Moffat's 1970 Super Ford Falcon XW GTHO
Moffat first entered the Australian Touring Car Championship (ATCC) in
1965, driving a Lotus Cortina. By 1969 he had become a regular competitor
and his bright red Coca-Cola-sponsored Ford Boss 302 Mustang, which was supplied brand-new
to Moffat from Ford's American 'in-house' race car fabrication and
engineering facility "Kar Kraft", was unmistakable at circuits around
Australia. With the help of Tom Hamilton, he would go on to win 101 touring
car races (from 151 starts) in this car between 1969 and 1972, yet his
dream of winning the ATCC in the Mustang eluded him.
Moffat in the works Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III at Surfers Paradise
International Raceway, February 1972
Although Moffat and a number of other drivers raced Mustangs for ATCC competition - the
five ATCC titles from 1965 to 1969 were all won by Mustang drivers - this car, modified
to CAMS Improved Production Touring Car regulations was ineligible for the
Bathurst 500 (later Bathurst 1000), which was restricted to standard
production cars prior to 1973. Moffat therefore made his debut in that race
in 1969 in a Ford works team entered Ford Falcon XW GTHO. He and co-driver
Alan Hamilton finished fourth.
The following two years would see Moffat come into his own as one of
Australia's most dominant race drivers, and the Falcon GTHO as an almost
unbeatable car. For 1970, Ford Australia had made significant improvements
to the Falcon XW GTHO Phase II over the previous year's model and Moffat,
racing without a co-driver, took the car to two crushing victories in both
the 1970 and 1971 Bathurst races. In 1971 he became the first driver to
lead the Bathurst 500 from start to finish while driving the famed Ford

Unearthed: 1970 Bathurst 500 vision
Bathurst 1970 was a battle between the Falcon GT-HOs, Torana XU-1s and
Valiant Pacers. Here's a unique view of the action supplied to AMC by
reader Michael Dariz. It comes from an 8mm soundless film reel shot at the
Mountain shot by a TV crew member with his own gear. "Friends of mine gave
me this reel a while back because they knew I love the muscle car era,"
Kariz said. "The person who filmed this was contracted to a TV station back
then and the reason he did his own filming during his breaks was to try and
decide what car he was going to buy. The things people do!" Thanks Michael
(and the original cameraman) for sharing this vision.
Mad Max - Last V8 Interceptor Axle-hop Stop!
Met up with Justice, who runs Maxrockatansky.org and did a little bit of
filming near Lake Lewisville. Thought I'd throw in the axle-hop stop that
you see at the beginning of MM2: The Road Warrior. He doesn't throw it into
reverse, as many erroneously believe. It's this type of stop I demonstrate
