Covering classic Aussie and American muscle, custom pickups, high-quality restomods, street machines and hot rods, the latest stock drop auction from SEVEN82MOTORS is the biggest ever.
For this auction, a total of 41 highly-desirable vehicles have filled the SEVEN82MOTORS Nerang facility to capacity, with some amazing restorations, mild customs - and wilder customs! - amongst the consignments. Bidding opened on Monday, 11 October and closes from 7:00PM on Monday, 18 October.
As with past SEVEN82MOTORS auctions, there will be three open days for in-person vehicle inspections.
Both the ‘Late Night Shopping’ on Thursday, 14 October from 5:00PM to 8:00PM and the main ‘Open Day’ on Saturday, 16 October from 8:00AM to 2:00PM will feature a DJ and barber on site, along with merchandise, coffee and more. The ‘Last Minute Monday’ is for genuine inspections only on Monday, 18 October from 9:00AM to 4:00PM.
If you’re unable to attend an open day and view the vehicles in person, SEVEN82MOTORS has provided as much detail and data as possible on each consignment online, including a big deck of photos for each vehicle.
There’s been a small tweak to the photos for this auction, with an ‘overview’ of the vehicle provided in the first half dozen images, followed by dozens more, ensuring potential buyers have as much information and imagery as possible to help their purchasing decision.
If you’re new to the online auction process, SEVEN82MOTORS has prepared a handy how-to video explaining how to create an account, register as a new bidder and bid on current auctions. You can view that video HERE.
Also carrying over from previous auctions is the ‘soft close’ feature that automatically extends the closure time on a consignment if a last-second bid is made – allowing registered bidders the opportunity to better a late bid.
As with previous SEVEN82MOTORS stock drop auctions, there are plenty of outstanding vehicles to choose from in this one, including Aussie classics, US muscle, Aussie muscle and some very cool customised hot rods and American pickups. And every vehicle is of the high standard that SEVEN82MOTORS is renowned for.
All consignments for this auction carry a reserve, which shows on the listing when the reserve has been met.
With 41 consignments for this auction, there’s plenty to pick from. Here are a few highlights.

1975 Ford XB Falcon GT sedan
351ci V8, 3-speed auto, full restoration, interesting history.
This Genuine 1975 Ford XB GT sedan has been fully restored and has a great history.
Originally a special order for the manager of an ACT Ford dealership, the Tango Orange GT was factory optioned with parchment trim, power steering and protection pack, while air conditioning was fitted by the dealer.
Nearly 30 years later, the manager’s son discovered the car sitting in a barn as a bare shell with boxes of parts. A full, 18-month restoration was done before the car was gifted back to the original owner for his 76th birthday.
The car runs its original 351ci V8, paired to an automatic transmission, with the power steering and protection pack refitted, along with original 12 slotter wheels and rebuilt suspension. The interior was refurbished using as many original parts as possible.
Books, restoration photos and an authentication letter from Ford are included. The original chrome bumpers were replaced with colour coded bumpers during the restoration, but the originals will be included with the sale.

1968 Dodge Charger
318ci V8, 3-speed auto, disc brake upgrade, retrimmed interior.
The ’68 Charger is one of the most iconic muscle cars of all time!
This is a killer example of the B-Body Charger made famous by films like Bullitt and the Fast and the Furious franchise
The gloss black body on this car is laser straight, the chrome bumpers are in good shape and it sits on a set of black 15-inch steel wheels.
Under the bonnet is the standard 318ci V8 which has been fully rebuilt and paired to a Torqueflite 3-speed automatic.
Upgraded to four-wheel power disc brakes, the car has also been fully rewired, with recent work including new shocks and new mufflers.
Inside, fresh black leather has been applied to the seats and door cards, and there’s new door and window rubbers, new carpets and a new headlining. Mixing old and new, a vintage Mopar steering wheel and modern stereo have been installed. There’s air con and an anti-theft tracker, too.

1974 Holden HQ Monaro GTS 350 sedan
350ci V8, 3-speed auto, mostly original example of genuine ‘QU’ car.
A genuine, matching number 4-door GTS 350 with books, this is an example of the “QU” Monaro that’s highly regarded among collectors.
This car has survived the years incredibly well and is mostly unrestored, but was repainted a few years back in Barbados Green from its original white.
The original 350ci V8 remains, which is pretty incredible some 47 years down the track. The engine has received a set of extractors and some minor aftermarket bolt-ons which can all be rectified. The engine is paired to a Turbo 400 automatic.
Inside, the trim is showing some wear, but apart from a couple of very minor tears in the driver’s seat, has held up well.
While no show car in its current state, these are all things that can be rectified. The fact this car has all the matching numbers and documentation confirming it’s the real deal is something that can never be brought back.

Brakes have been upgraded to XW Falcon front discs, with power assist and dual master cylinders.
The restored body has been repainted in Nardo Grey, the chrome has been refinished and it sits – lowered - on red steel wheels with wide whitewall tyres. A towbar has also been fitted.
