Oh what could have been!!! Peter Brock had sampled the Opel Monza in 1981 when he went to Europe to race an Australian-entered Porsche at LeMans with Colin Bond and Jim Richards. Brockie thought that the Monza would work well when combined with an Aussie high-performance V8 and HDT's handling prowess in an executive-style premium hatchback with European style and substance.

One Opel Monza was imported to Australia by Brock. He saw that the underlying componentry was just about identical to the Commodore. That meant Brock and his HDT crew could easily replace the Monza's original front cross-member, engine and steering with higher-performance parts sourced from the HDT-fettled Holden Commodores. A grunty Group Three-spec 5.0-litre V8, teamed with Borg Warner's new T5 five-speed transmission from the Corvette was fitted and saw rave reviews from the Aussie motoring press.

And that's as far as he got! The bean counters at Holden thought the car would be a threat to the Commodore and said "NO" to the Monza Coupe and the rest is history. Only One Brock Monza prototype was built but here is your chance to build another for yourself or just enjoy this Opel as it was manufactured.

Imported by the current owner in 2000 from the UK with the plan to build it into a V8 Brock Monza Replica, the car has been enjoyed as is and has been fully registered and driven in NSW with number plates VKCOOP.

The owner has fitted a VK Brock Commodore grill insert, VK front guards, bonnet and head lights but has kept the rest of the car unmodified. The car is running the original 3 litre straight 6 motor with overhead cam and EFI and 5 speed manual Gertrag gearbox and LSD diff. It features a factory LCD electronic digital dash, factory Recaro sports cloth seats, sports steering wheel, power windows, power steering and mirrors and factory sunroof. The odometer shows 73,000 miles from new. The owner has fitted 15" Holden VN SS alloys and the Monza comes with a factory workshop manual.

The car is solid, rust and damage free and presents a great opportunity for the Brock/Commodore enthusiast to build something special. Or just enjoy it as it is and turn heads wherever you go. Liverpool, NSW car. (Ref. 5233)
