This is the last & very best of the 100% Australian built, 5.0 litre Iron V8 SS Commodores. The engine was fully blueprinted, with bigger exhaust, head work, special chip, special exhaust & a special locker diff. It is the last remaining one of the three that were hand built by GM for use as F1 Grand Prix officials' cars. Russell Ingall got this one after the GP and developed it further, creating a never-to-be-repeated special known as 'The Enforcer SS'. The car was tested and written up in the November 1999 Motor magazine as the best SS of that year (copy available). The improvements Russell made to make it The Enforcer included HM Headers, stainless steel, big bore exhaust, camber kits, King Springs, chip mods and massive AP Racing brakes all round, with 18 inch Italian MOMO Mags, lowered suspension and better bushes. I bought the car from Russell in 12.1999 and have owned & cared for it ever since. It was used as a family car on long trips only for years, as I have always had a work car as well. The car recently had a new clutch, new battery, new alternator and the air con was overhauled. It has done a low 152,712 km only since new, & its precision engine should last many more such kms. I also fitted Pedders Gas Ryder shocks all round to compliment the variable rate springs better, which improved the ride and phenomenal handling even more. With timeless, classic looks, this is a rare piece of 100% Australian motoring & motorsport history, in immaculate condition mechanically and every other way. I have full ownership & service history, plus receipts for all work done in its young life so far. Enfrcr number plates which I have can be sold with the car or separately.
