1988 HSV VL SS Group A Walkinshaw Build No. 347

Seriously precious metal! With only 15,763 klms from new in the hands of only two enthusiastic HSV collectors, this is truly a rare opportunity to acquire one of the most original and lowest mileage HSV VL SS Group A Walkinshaws available.

Build No. 347 was purchased by the original lady owner from Eagers Holden in Newstead, Brisbane, QLD. Religiously serviced as per the log books by the dealership from 1988 until 2005 when purchased by the second and current owner with 13,300 klms on the clock. Having had a replica Walkinshaw prior to owning this car, the current owner had the vision to purchase this special car back in 2005 and instead of racking up the kilometres has looked after the car to ensure that it retains its originality. The oils, fuel and the brake fluid have been changed regularly and the car has been driven around the block to ensure that everything is kept in perfect working condition. The car is all original with untouched paint, original decals, headlights, spark plugs, belts, air cleaner and the original RE71 tyres and valve caps! The rear muffler has been changed due to age.

The vehicle still has the throttle body restrictor fitted, both sets of working keys and a working A/C with the original R12 gas still in place. The car comes with all its service log books and purchase documentation. The interior is absolutely original with no marks anywhere. She still has the new car smell and has nil wear anywhere. The original radio cassette is in perfect condition and the electric aerial is still black from lack of use. No need to listen to the radio when you've got the wonderful twin throttle bodies making their unique sound.

A lowering kit supplied with the car originally has been fitted to the vehicle and also includes the jack point covers (with fitting instructions) that were a special order from HSV after the purchase of the car. The car has only ever been washed with rainwater when necessary and has never had silicone sprays or Armor All used on it.

Stored in its own insulated shed the car is a testament to the current owners respect for this unique HSV Walkinshaw. The car comes with its original QLD number plates. Currently on club registration. The car is located in Gladstone district, QLD. (Ref. 5338)
