The only car raced at the Mountain under both legends, and the last car to win under HDT

The names of Peter Brock and Allan Moffat are etched into Australian motorsport lore, but there was only one car they ever shared together at Mount Panorma.

The number 05 HDT VK Commodore – chassis HDT 14 – raced under both legends at the 1986 Bathurst 1000 has been placed on the market.

It was the car famously crashed by Moffat into Skyline the day before the Great Race, leading to an overnight repair job by the factory Holden team to get the car on the starting grid.

As well as being the only car shared by the long-time rivals, the number 05 VK is also the last factory-backed Holden to claim a win for HDT at the 1987 Wellington 500; just weeks before Brock and Holden famously fell out.

The car, post-Brock was converted to VL specification and gave Neil Crompton his racing debut later in 1987, and was sold to WA in 1988.

Australian motorsport specialist, V8 Sleuth, has been tasked by the owner in presenting the car to market.

Aaron Noonan of V8 Sleuth stated: "There’s no doubt that the names Brock and Moffat are huge in the history of the sport, this car is the only one they ever drove together at Bathurst".

"At the time they had 12 Bathurst wins between them, eight to Brock and four to Moffat. It was the all-star dream team that racing fans would have never thought possible".

The sale of the car comes with all accompanying CAMS log books and has undergone exacting restoration to its 1986 Bathurst VK-specification, by Melbourne based restorers Tom Rogers and Rick Wyatt. The engine has also been freshly rebuilt by ex-HDT crew member Neill Burns.

Both Brock and Moffat’s signatures are on the transmission tunnel inside the cabin, and the car is currently displayed at the National Motor Racing Museum at Mount Panorama, Bathurst.

No price has been publically listed, but given its unrepeatable and unique provenance and history – we’re betting it won’t be cheap.
