This rare 1970 Holden Monaro GTS 350 Bathurst edition will go under the hammer this weekend

Holden collectors have the chance to grab a piece of history at this weekend’s Lloyds Auction. One of the rare Holden Monaro HT GTS 350 Bathurst specials is set to go under the hammer on Saturday (April 29).

The Bathurst edition celebrates the brand’s success in 1969, when Colin Bond and Tony Roberts won the race in the then-new HT Monaro. That inspired Holden to celebrate its win with a road going special, which have become highly sought-after by enthusiasts.

This particular example is a 1970 build with an automatic transmission, one of just 275 examples with the two-speed Powerglide auto paired to the 5.7-litre V8.

Finished in Kashmir White with a Morocco Red interior trim, this car has been given a two-year restoration. It comes with matching numbers and includes details such as the original wax top battery and two-speaker radio with under-dash fader.

At the time of publication the car had already attracted a bid of more than $200,000 but is likely to go for higher once the hammer falls on Saturday.
