The famous ‘Brock Experience’ collection of Peter Brock’s cars has been sold to a new owner – all bar one car.
Its former owner and curator, Peter Champion, confirmed that the sale has taken place and that the new owner wishes to remain anonymous.
“It is with great sadness that I announce today that I have sold my entire race collection.
“It is no secret that after my heart attack in 2012 that I offered the collection for sale.
“During the years I’ve had offers for individual cars and I have maintained that the collection was only available for a sale as a whole.
“True to my word, the collection was sold as a whole bar one car.
“The new owner wishes to remain anonymous and will make announcements at their discretion.”
The collection was displayed in the form of the Brock Experience, a museum showing off dozens of Brock’s own road and race cars, from his early Toranas to the later Targa Tasmania rally Monaros.
A 1988 Lada Samara Brock was even part of the collection.
Perhaps one of the highlights of the collection is the original ‘Big Banger’ 1984 VK Commodore which has Holden’s 5.0-litre V8 stuffed into the engine bay.
Several of Brock’s touring cars and Supercars are also part of the collection, including his last V8 Supercar, the 2002 VX Commodore.
The collection also features a particularly sombre car, the Daytona coupe in which Brock was killed in 2006.
It’s not known which car was the singular unsold model, or, as Champion stated, who the owner is, though if MOTOR learns any more information this story will be updated.
