Australia’s Most Expensive Car

28. May 2014 12:00 by Rare Spares in General  //  Tags: , , ,   //   Comments (0)

Last year the most expensive Holden ever sold, the Monaro HRT 427, went back on the market with an asking price of one million dollars.

Before this listing, the previous owner Shawn “Chooka” Ryan, who paid $920,000 for the car, was forced in 2010 to resell it.

The HRT 427 was one of two built in 2002 to showcase Holden and HSV's engineering prowess.

No expense was spared in the build of the HRT 427, which combines a handbuilt Tremec T56 six-speed manual gearbox mated to a heavy duty 9000Nm clutch, an AP Racing six-piston brake package and half roll cage.

This is still the most expensive car ever sold in Australia, topping the previous $750,000 price payed for a Ford Falcon 1971 GTHO Phase III.

Six years ago another Holden nearly claimed this title, with the owner of a 60-year-old Holden knocking back an offer of $900,000, listing it for sale at $1.2 million. The FX Holden from 1948, the year Holden opened its doors in Australia, was number 46 of only 112 cars sold that year and is believed to be one of only three still in existence.

To our knowledge the car didn’t sell for the asking price and the owner held onto it.

FE-HR Holden Owners Club ACT Receive New Flags

18. March 2014 09:32 by Rare Spares in General  //  Tags: , , ,   //   Comments (0)

In 1987 the FE-HR Owners Club of ACT was started in order to cater for Holden enthusiasts with a shared passion for 56-67’ models, introduced after the FX-FJ’s and before the first Holden factory V8’s.

Over the years the club has opened its doors to include members who have an interest in any Holden model, whether their vehicles are restored show cars, modified street machines or modern vehicles.

The club has been involved in a number of fantastic events: they have hosted several ACT Holden Day events, the 10th FE-FC Holden Nationals in Jindabyne NSW during Easter 2005, the 9th ACT Holden Day in 2007, as well as the 8th HD-HR Holden Nationals in 2009. The club also runs monthly activities for their club members and participates in local and interstate runs and displays with many of the Holden Car Clubs of Australia.

Most recently, on the 16th February, the club has participated in a drive to Malua Bay, NSW. They have also recently held ‘Scotty’s Run to the Cotter’ – an annual event held to commemorate one of their own club members, Scott Dunkley. An exciting upcoming event for the club is ‘Shannons Wheels Day’ on the 16th March, in which the club will have their own car display.

The FE-HR Owners Club ACT INC. was recently awarded four feather flags for their continued loyalty to Rare Spares.  Standing at 4.6 metres tall, these flags will ensure that the club will not be missed at future events they are part of. 

“The flags look great,” said Graham Pryce, Club Manager.

 The club was able to redeem this fantastic reward with the points they had accumulated through the Rare Spares Loyalty Club. The Rare Spares Loyalty Club rewards loyal customers! Registered car clubs receive exclusive discounts and points which can be redeemed for great rewards like marquees and flags and other promotional items.

Kiwanis All Ford Day 2014

The Annual Kiwanis All Ford Day was held on Sunday 16th February in Geelong bringing together lots of blue oval enthusiasts for a display of over 1,000 Ford show cars, car club displays, trophies and prizes, live music, kid’s rides, food vans and more.

The slightly overcast weather didn’t deter all the Ford fans and families who came down for a day of entertainment.

The annual festival is one of the biggest Ford events of the year, with appearances from Ford motoring legends Alan Moffat and John Bowe, bands and celebrities gracing the stages, autograph signing sessions and a Ford production development vehicle display. Rare Spares were there in full force, with a trade stand and voucher give-aways.
