Nice one. Trouble is that car is worth more than almost any other GMH product, and I bet it sells for less than people pay for stuff like A9X’s.

This car was auctioned on Grays a few months ago. Think it got to $267,000 or something like that and the owner knocked it back "Reserve not met".
Trouble with Grays and these type of cars is that its all B.S.
The high bids are fake, my mate put his 327 up, supposedly got a high bid of 240K, accepted it but then Grays fudged around "and couldn't get the buyer to respond".
Sure.

A mate bought a manual XW8 HQ exactly the same in Adelaide off an old guy for $4500
The original owner advertised it in the local paper as 'HQ sedan V8' and my mate couldnt believe his luck.
A couple of years later he sold it for $7000 and it ended up in Darwin in the mid 1990's
I wonder if its the same car.

That car was owned by the late Greg Thackeray in Sydney well know in the HQ Community was at all the big Swap Meets etc with his reproduced or reconditioned HQ Parts lovely bloke, I saw the car in his shed a few years ago was painted not sure if the front end was on it or not at the time but most of the work on that car was done by him when he passed his wife sold that car and another coupe which needed full resto to the same bloke in QLD.

Sold $286,409. Greys auctions have a ten minute period at the end where the auction appears to have ended but bids are still possible, someone threw in a cheeky $200. Plus buyers premium too l expect.
