A True Collectors Item; The VL SS Group A was the second car built for Group A racing purposes and also limited to 500 built in total; the VL Group A SS Plus Pack was the model that stirred up all the controversy between Peter Brock and General Motors Holden. The controversy centred around the validity of Peter Brocks Energy Polariser hence there was actually two versions of the VL Group A produced Standard and the PLUS PACK. Holden could see no technical merit in the Polariser and thus refused to fit it to the cars, so Brock refused to put decals with his signature on cars without it. As a result, Brocks signature only appears on the higher spec PLUS PACKs. Peter Brock went on and made 173 Plus Packs making these the most desirable and collectable of all the VL Group As. Plus Packs also included revised springs and anti-roll bars as well as revised front suspension geometry and changed spring mounting pads. It also has improved cylinder head cooling with the introduction of an extra water passage to the head and a higher-pressure fuel pump.
All VL group As were painted Permanent Red duco and came with HDTs distinctive Scheel Grey Cloth Interior and HDT Momo leather gear knob and steering wheel. The Exhaust was of the low restriction big bore variety and had headers designed with Group A racing in mind and as such featured a flange only inches from the cylinder heads. This was done as Group A regulations allowed a free exhaust from the first flange, so they put the first flange as close as possible to the engine to capitalise on the rules. The engine also featured heavy duty con rods and crankshaft as well as Crane (gold coloured) roller rockers and a lightened flywheel. For the first time the Borg Warner T5G 5 speed transmission was standard fitment and diff was the 4 pinion Borg Warner item with 3.08 ratio.

This particular VL Group A SS Plus Pack has only travelled 96,500km from new. This is Build Number 3726 making it number 182 of 500. A few things that make this particular PLUS PACK even more unique beside the original factory logbooks and two original keys, it also rides on the super rare 16 x 8 HDT Momo Wheels (most VL Group As came out with 16 x 7s), it also has the optional original HDT body kit components fitted ie. cold air intake, side skirts, front & rear bumper spoilers. This car drives and sounds exceptionally well and can only be described as a power houseits much quicker than my VK Group A. I can email you a lot more photos if you wish.
I'm not desperate and not interested in any low ball offers. I would only be interested in a swap for a highly collectable vehicle worth $50,000 or more eg. Aston Martin, Genuine VC & VK HDT's, Ford Coupes, XY XW GT's, XC Cobra etc.
Asking price is $128,000. I am only willing to negotiate on price with people that make the effort to call and discuss the price or even better come out to view the vehicle.
PLUS PACK WA issue personalised number plates are not included in the sale.
NO TEXT MESSAGE OFFERS PLEASE...they will be immediately deleted.
