1984 VK Group 3 Commodore Replica

Built by the current owner who is a well known motor racing driver/builder and enthusiast, this Tuxedo Black 1984 VK Group 3 Brock Replica was built for the purpose of using the car as a road car as well as for use for club sprints, drive days and Tarmac rallies. Owned for over 20 years, this is well sorted and equipped Brock Replica that is ready to be enjoyed by a driving enthusiast. The main build was done 12 years ago and the car has done less than two track days a year over the last ten years and would not have done 10,000 klms on the road in that time. The car drives very well, pulls hard and has done a very respectable 69 second lap time on old R spec Yokohama tyres with the even older (67 year old) owner/driver at Wanneroo Raceway (Barbagallo).

Using a dead straight fuel injected 6 cylinder auto SL and parts from a V8 Auto Berlina. The donor body had never been crashed or repainted and was originally delivered new by Dowding Motors in Kellerberrin, WA. A dry inland town and 99% rust free. The car was totally stripped, paint rubbed back to the original under coat. The car uses a combination of Brock body kits and the entire car was finished in acrylic Tuxedo black paint. All glass was removed, zero rust found under front and rear screen rubbers. Two small rust repairs made to a hole in the boot floor and lower right rear quarter panel. Most panels were dead straight other than a few minor car park dents, there would not be more than a cup full of filler in the whole car.

Inside there are replica Recaro style buckets for road use. Rear seat finished in black velour, black carpet, sports steering wheel, additional oil pressure and water temp gauges.
