Brougham Sale

Asked by Damian Murphy

I'M THINKING of selling my HT Holden Brougham. It has a 308 V8 motor that has done only 10000km, Powerglide automatic transmission and banjo diff, electric windows, power steering, T-bar shifter, centre console and bucket seats. The interior, with the exception of the driver's seat, is in great condition. The body and paint needs restoration, but the body is in reasonable condition for its age. It has had two owners, including me, and I have had it for the past 20 years. What do you think it is worth?

As with all cars of this type, the value comes down to its condition and I can only go by what you've told me. The Brougham was the predecessor of the Statesman; it was Holden's first try at competing with Ford's very successful Fairlane. It wasn't very successful. It was really a regular sedan with a big boot, the wheelbase wasn't stretched as was the Fairlane's, so there was no extra room for rear-seat passengers. It's a collectable car, but the value depends very much on the condition of the body and paint, and you say those need restoring. I'd suggest it's worth $8000-$10,000.
