If I told you there’s a Holden coming up on a $1 auction on TradeMe, I wouldn’t blame you for not taking much notice of me and thinking it must be a bit of a slow news day. That said, there’s a Holden coming up on a $1 auction on TradeMe so listen up!

$1 auction Holden Commodore
Ebbett Hamilton is auctioning off Holden’s last hurrah.

Enthusiast’s dream

This auction is all kinds of special. $1 start and no reserve aside, Ebbett Hamilton is auctioning off one of the very last Australian built V8s and it only has 76km on the clock. Only 28 of these were ever brought to New Zealand and this one is sure to get Holden fans, enthusiasts and collectors sharpening up their last-second TradeMe sniping skills.

6.2L LS3 V8 paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox is a spec us motoring writers haven’t been called upon to write very often in recent years and whether you long for the V8 era or can’t wait for us all to drive EVs, I’m sure we can all agree that this is a very fitting tribute to a brand that brought so much joy to generations of motorists. 304kW of power and 570NM of torque makes this a bona fide, adrenaline filled, Aussie muscle car sure to put a giant grin on any driver’s face.

I hope the new owner of this car drives it the way its makers intended rather than putting it into an air conditioned storage container to wait for it’s value to appreciate for the next quarter century but I think it probably will end up on display somewhere around the country.

Going, going, gone!

Auction starts on 1 April 2021 and this is no April Fools gag. It really is going to start at $1 and there is no reserve. It will undoubtedly raise a considerable sum and Ebbett Hamilton will donate part of the proceeds to charities around Waikato.
