A working 100 year-old Dodge is one of about half-a-dozen vintage cars about to go to auction in Diggers Rest.

M.E Auctions is organising the sale that also includes a 1951 Daimler, a 1955 Mercedes and a 1969 Toyota bus, all in working condition.

There’ll also be “paddocks full” of other goodies including tractors, a forklift, machinery, implements, workshop and landscaping tools, PA gear, and more.

Seller Wez Rowe said he’s always had a penchant for buying and collecting unique items he likes at the “behest” of those around him.

“I get to a point where I’ve got too much of a good thing and have to clear them out,” he said.

Mr Rowe said the Dodge ended up in his possession after a friend who was restoring it passed away from cancer in 2020.

“Hopefully someone else can give it the attention it deserves,” he said.

There will be a viewing of the auction items on Friday, April 19, from 2pm to 4pm at 219 Diggers Rest Road- Coimadai Road, Diggers Rest.

The auction will be conducted online only, via live video stream from 10am on April 20.
