Bonhams & Goodman conducted a boutique auction of Collectors’ Cars in the grounds of historic Como House in Melbourne last Sunday 2 December.

Lot 6, a c1924 Vauxhall 30-98 was undoubtedly the highlight of the sale, selling for $316,400 (IBP). Lot 7, a 1948 Mercedes-Benz A320 sold for $259,900. Both cars sold to overseas bidders with the Vauxhall going to Germany and the Mercedes to Ireland.

A weekend outing to Como House with his family turned into an expensive adventure for one gentleman when he ended up buying lot 4, a 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 for $79,100 (IBP).

Other results include lot 1, a 1960 MGA 1600 coupe which fetched $31,640, lot 3, a 1960 Mercedes-Benz 190B Saloon for $16,950 and lot 9, a 1963 Daimler Majestic Major DR450 Limousine for $31,075. Lot 11, a 1950 Austin Healey BN2 Roadster sold for $58,760.

Robert Glover, National Head of the Motoring Department commented, “We were absolutely delighted with the new sale venue and received an enormous amount of positive feedback from our clients, which was reflected by the strong prices achieved at the sale.”

Lot 2, a 1951 Chevrolet utility and lot 5, a 1911 S.C.A.T. 15h.p. Open Tourer, were both referred to vendor and Robert is confident they will be sold shortly.

The next auction of Collectors’ Cars will take place in Sydney in March.
