This live auction event features the exceptional Qld
heritage number Q ‘8’, the only single digit Australian heritage plate to
become available since 2007.



This opportunity to secure an elusive, valuable and special
single digit plate is rare.  The last
known sale of an Australian single digit plate was that of NSW ‘6’, which on 21
October 2007 was passed in at auction for $895,000 and is understood to have
sold post auction for over one million dollars.

The rare and exceptional ‘lucky number’ Q ‘8’ plate is expected
to break sales records for a Queensland numberplate when it is auctioned by us


The world record price for a numberplate is the $A13,640,000
(in today’s currency) that was paid for UAE plate ‘1’ in Abu Dhabi on 16th
Feb, 2008.

A You Tube clip of the sale of UAE ‘1’ can be found here:



Also on offer at The Great Qld Plate AuctionTM II is Q ‘888’, along with over forty other exceptional Q 3-digit and 4-digit plates, including several Porsche themed plates, including Q910, Q956, Q986, Q987, Q2700, Q3400, Q3600 and Q3800.



Also on offer are several rare groups
of consecutive sets of 3-digit plates: pairs, triples and even a quadruple
ascending set; do not miss your opportunity to attend this live auction event.


The Queensland Q plate market has the potential for
considerable value growth, and as we have seen with the results of our similar auctions
interstate these events grow and drive the Heritage Plate market through
education and a greater awareness of Heritage Plates themselves.



As Australia’s only specialty auction house for Historic and
Heritage, numeral only plates, we have sold over a million dollars worth of
Historic and Heritage plates under the auction hammer in the past 12 months and
in doing so have set several price sales records, culminating in the $206,000
we achieved under the hammer with the sale of SA ‘17’ in December 2011.


Don’t miss this opportunity to acquire Q ‘8’, a single plate
or a series of investment grade, rare and no longer available 3-digit Heritage
Q Plates.


Places in our Brisbane
auction room will be strictly limited, with admission by invitation- so
register your interest in attending and in/or receiving a full catalogue by emailing
your contact details to or by contacting Stewart Kay on 0401
722 222.


The first The Great Queensland Great Plate Auction was held
in 1985: now, twenty seven years later, we give you the opportunity to secure
your own piece of Qld motoring history with the largest Heritage Q Plate
auction to have been held in Queensland since ‘85.
