In the beginning there was the VG Maloo. Of course it pales next to HSV's final GTS-R Maloo ute running the 435Kw supercharged LSA Generation IV alloy V8. But the VG is where it all started. And HSV put together a pretty good package for 1990.
According to road testers, handling was as crisp and sharp as a HSV sedan, with good grip even during hard cornering. With the performance nailed down HSV turned to the cosmetics and produced a neat looking sports truck that stood out without being too far out-there.
The colour-keyed body kit was made up to 10 parts, including a grille, front bumper, side skirts, and rear bumper. There was also a roof-mounted airfoil and a sports bar in the rear, along with a HSV monogrammed tonneau cover, as well as badges and decals to alert the neighbours to what was making all the noise next door.
The sports look was nicely completed with HSV-styled five-spoke 16 x 7 inch alloys in the guards. Inside, it had sports seats, a Calais dash and dials, a Momo steering wheel, air, and a Eurovox sound system.
For sale is this super collectible survivor 1990 HSV Maloo Build No.14 in MARANELLO RED arguably the most desirable colour and transmission combo made. Mechanically strong and running the all matching numbers 180KW 5L V8 and manual five speed gearbox, Maloo #14 has traveled only 170,492 klms and is supplied with a VG owners manual.
The car presents well for its age with a very solid body, good paint and excellent original stickers. A new tonneau cover is fitted with the original HSV monogrammed cover supplied. The car rides on the original HSV sports rims with good rubber.
Highly collectible as HSV's first 'sport pick-up'. What a great car for the Holden ute collector and a great example to sit next to your 2016 GTS-R Maloo Ute. Now eligible for club registration.
