Tullochs to host classic car auction in Launceston

Tullochs Auctions is preparing to take bidders on a journey back through time this Saturday as it hosts the first Collector Car, Classics, Barnfind and Automobilia Auction of the year.

Items going under the hammer include a 1952 Holden FX, which has spent more than three decades hiding in a barn.

The vintage vehicle has already caused a stir on social media, with footage of the car emerging from a garage clocking up more than 18,000 views on Facebook.

There is also a Mach 1 1969 Fastback Mustang coupe in concourse condition, as well as a Tasmanian ‘X’ number plate, which will be available for purchase.

Saturday’s event follows Tullochs first dedicated motoring auction in July 2017, which included a DeLorean DMC-12.

Pre-bidding for the upcoming auction started on March 10, and Tullochs manager Jessie Reid said the list of items will only grow larger before Saturday.

“Lots of rusty gold, survivor cars, classics and petronalia are being added daily to our online catalogue,” she said.

The auction begins at 1pm on Saturday, March 17, with viewing available from 10am.
