Brock’s 1982/83 Bathurst winner sells for $2.1 million
Peter Brock’s 1982/83 Bathurst winning HDT Commodore VH SS has sold at auction for $2.1 million.
Lloyds Auctions held a special event in Bathurst last night where a collection of Brock’s cars went under the hammer.
Prior to the auction it was expected the two-time winner of the Great Race would fetch $2 million, with the final sale figure just north of that prediction.
In total 36 Brock cars were offered for sale alongside a host of memorabilia, though not all reached their reserve and were passed in.
The first car under the hammer was a Walkinshaw Andretti United ZB Commodore raced by Scott Pye this year, which fetched $230,000.
It will be delivered to the winner at the end of the 2019 season as a rolling chassis.
First of the Brock collection to be sold was a 1987 Holden Commodore VL Group A race car, which went for $800,000.
A Ford Falcon XY GT Phase III driven by Brock went for $800,000, though a number of others were passed in.
They included a 1977 Holden Torana which had bidding stall at $250,00, a 1974 Holden Torana L34 which was rolled through at $375,000, and a Holden Torana A9X which didn’t meet reserve at $310,000.
A 1991 Holden Commodore VN driven by Brock and Andrew Miedecke also failed to sell despite bidding climbing to $310,000.
The 1984 HDT Big Banger also failed to sell, though bidding reached $850,000.
Last across the blocks was the 1982/83 Bathurst winning HDT VH Commodore that sold for $2.1 million.
