SEVEN82MOTORS’ latest online auction goes live on 30 August, with a bunch of new vehicles on offer and some new attractions, too.
Transforming SEVEN82MOTORS’ monthly stock drop events into a longer, more inclusive, more immersive and more engaging online experience, the online auction covers American, Australian and European offerings, as well as classics, customs, street machines and hot rods, so there’s plenty to choose from amongst the 36 vehicles consigned.
NEW – No Reserve Vehicles
Amongst the consignments are three vehicles being offered with No Reserve, which is a first for SEVEN82MOTORS auctions and something dealer principal Ben Atkinson is particularly proud of, as it reflects the trust that customers have shown in the results achieved previously on the Seven82 Auction Platform.
The No Reserve vehicles comprise the following:
- 1963 Chevrolet Corvette convertible
- 1978 Holden HZ Premier wagon
- 1984 Chevrolet C4 Corvette coupe
The 1963 Corvette is a neatly-presented example of the first of the second-generation Corvettes and the first to bear the Stingray name. Fitted with a factory-style 327ci V8 and 4-speed manual, the Corvette has been fully retrimmed, with new carpets and genuine leather on the seats, steering wheel, dash and door cards. Repainted some time ago, this Corvette still presents well and is ready to enjoy.
The 1978 HZ Premier wagon is a matching numbers unit, finished in Atlantis Blue with a Buckskin vinyl interior. Along with the stock 253 V8 and Trimatic auto, the Premier was also fitted with power steering and air conditioning from the factory. Restored in 2019, many original features were retained, including the carpets, bumpers and roof rack. An excellent example of a numbers-matching classic Aussie car.
The 1984 Corvette is from the first model year of the fourth-generation and this example has had a lot of money put into it. Purchased by the vendor from the US in 2017, the car is powered by a modified 383ci V8 that’s been dyno’d at 440hp. The engine is matched to a custom-built Tremec TKO500 5-speed manual and also features the Z51 suspension package. The ‘80s red-over-black styling is enhanced with gold striping and gold Riken wheels. The grey and black interior is neat and tidy, and the engine bay detailed with polished and anodized parts.
NEW – Collectables
If your budget doesn’t stretch to a new set of wheels for the garage, how about some memorabilia and collectables to decorate the garage?
Memorabilia and collectable items are a new addition for this auction and there’s plenty to tempt you across 61 lots, including vintage enamel signs, lightbox signs, oil bottles and petrol tins, oil dispensers, cast statues, highway signs, tin toys and more.
There’s also a big selection of Coca Cola items to decorate the man cave, including signs, coolers, a vending machine and even a soda fountain!
All the memorabilia items are being offered with No Reserve.
NEW – Catalogue
Another first with this auction is a printed catalogue, containing information and high quality imagery of every consignment.

There are too many outstanding vehicles to choose from for this auction, but here a few to keep an eye on when the auction goes live on 30 August.
Lot 98 – 1969 Holden HT Monaro GTS 350
Interesting history. Matching numbers car. 350 V8, 4-speed manual.
The top of the tree in terms of performance Holdens available in 1969, the HT GTS 350 Monaro finished first and third at Bathurst in 1969.
This HT GTS 350 is a high-quality, matching-numbers car, the earliest known example built at GM-H’s Dandenong plant and possibly originally purchased by Holden themselves.
Fully restored in the 1990s, including a repaint in its original Daytona Bronze and retrimmed Sandalwood interior, its factory features include a close ratio 4-speed manual transmission, tramp rods and the larger ‘Bathurst’ fuel tank.
Add-ons and changes include Aunger Hustler wheels, along with an aftermarket camshaft, intake, carb, air cleaner, headers and water pump. However, all the parts that came off the car have been retained and are included with the sale.

Lot 99 – 1969 Shelby GT 500
Interesting history, full restoration. 428 V8, 3-speed auto.
Documented in the Shelby American Register, this GT 500 was one of a batch of nine ’69 GT 500s sold new in Japan. Powered by the 428 Tram Air V8, with a C6 auto, power front disc brakes, and optional air conditioning and a kph speedo, this car was originally finished in pastel grey with a black interior. Spending many years as a museum display, during which it was repainted electric blue, the GT 500 was imported to Australia in 2004.
The new owner commissioned a comprehensive, ground-up restoration, during which time it was repainted in its original colour and the suspension, brakes and steering completely rebuilt, but the engine and trans needed only a mild overhaul.

Lot 97 – 1970 Holden HG Premier station wagon
High-quality show car, 3-year build. 5.7 V8, manualised 3-speed auto.
This HG Premier wagon has undergone a full, ground-up, nut-and-bolt rebuild, with everything either replaced or restored. Finished in custom metallic grey paint, the body is factory standard, apart from rear mini tubs and a reverse cowl bonnet..
A Trevor Frost-built 5.7-litre LS V8 was upgraded with a raft of performance parts, including larger valves, a mild cam, MSD ignition and 750 Double Pumper Quick Fuel carb. The engine is paired to a manualised Powerglide with TCE 4200 hi-stall convertor and produces 413hp at the wheels.
Rebuilt suspension, HQ brakes with a Wilwood master cylinder, a full interior retrim in the factory pattern, but a bold red colour, along with a retro sound system and hidden speakers are other features.

Lot 92 – 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle hardtop
Restored and customised in the USA. 383 V8, 4-speed manual.
A Chevrolet model rarely seen in Australia, this Chevelle spent its first 30+ years in the USA with only two owners, the second of which commissioned a full restoration, which included a complete interior retrim, rechromed trim, colour change from white to black and the addition of upsized wheels - American Racing 18-inch front, 20-inch rear.
The original 350 V8 was upgraded to a 383 Stroker, with a Holley 770 cfm carby fitted, while the3-inch exhaust system features Warlock mufflers with electric bypass valves.
The engine is paired to a Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual via a high-performance Chev 11-inch clutch, with a 10-bolt diff, Eaton centre and Richmond gear set also on the spec list of this cool, rare Chev that’s a bundle of fun to drive.

Lot 30 – 1966 Holden HR Premier X2 station wagon
Fully-restored and well looked-after performance classic. 186 inline six, 2-speed auto.
The performance X2 engine was introduced on the HD and carried over to the HR. And while it was often seen in a Premier sedan, the X2 engine in a Premier wagon is a rarity.
Purchased new in 1966, this HR Premier X2 wagon remained with its original owner’s family until 2001. The second owner completely restored the car, including finding a replacement K Code X2 engine and using NOS parts wherever possible.
A HD/HR Nationals award-winner, this white-over-gold wagon with black interior trim has travelled around 5,000 miles since the restoration was completed. Provenance included with the car confirms it was an X2-engined wagon from new.

Lot 100 – 1966 Chevrolet Corvette 427 convertible
1-of-1 spec, fully restored, Bloomington Gold certification. 427 V8, 4-speed manual.
While one of 5,572 L72 Big Block Corvettes built for 1966, the combination of specifications on this Corvette, including the rare Mosport Green paint, knockoff wheels and front seat headrests, make it a one of a kind.
Fully restored, including a rebuilt engine and transmission, new or refurbished chrome and stainless, retrimmed leather seats, new carpets and refurbished instrument display and centre console, the quality of this Corvette’s restoration saw it achieve Bloomington Gold certification in 2004. It comes to auction with much of its original paperwork (including the owner’s manual, AM/FM radio guide, accessories guide and even the dealer brochure) and shows just 39,900 miles travelled.

The SEVEN82MOTORS auction goes live at 7:00PM on Monday, 30 August and runs to Monday, 6 September, with staggered closing times from 7:00PM.
