The mighty VL SS Group A was released in November 1986 as a homologation special, created specifically so a racing optimised version of the Commodore could be utilised for Group A touring car racing. The regulations set down by the international governing body FISA for Group A motor racing specified that a minimum of 5,000 base model cars were to be built, with a further 500 "Evolution" specials built to a certain specification prior to said vehicle being allowed to compete.
You'll feel Bathurst running through this car. From the protruding NACA open air bonnet scoop that helps feed the carburetted V8 engine the colder air from the base of the windscreen, to the fitted Scheel seats, Momo steering wheel and gear knob, to the throaty roar of the 4.9L V8, the VL Group A exudes muscle.
Number 109 is totally stock, running the all matching Group A LV2 4.9L engine with factory Holden heavy duty crankshaft and conrods, the trusty Rochester four barrel carby, Crane roller rockers, improved camshaft profiles, combustion changer shapes and exhaust system.
The engine is mated to the excellent factory Borg-Warner T5 five speed manual, while inside the cabin, sculptured 'Scheel' bucket seats hold you comfortably in the drivers seat along with the signature Brock left foot support and Momo steering wheel with HDT gear knob.
Obviously well loved by its previous 3 owners, this Brockie still wears its original paint which is in excellent condition with only minor marks. The interior is good but does have a few areas showing slight wear from use over the years. So while its not a show car, it certainly is a Group A you will be proud to drive and own.
Sitting inside this Brock Group A is a very nice place to be. You can feel Peter Brock's influence and the whole car just works so well. Number 109 has covered a genuine 101,000 klms from new and comes with a HDT Verification letter and Peter Champion's HDT Build Pack as well as a period correct log book and owners manual.
Riding on the original stunning MOMO star wheels with excellent rubber, this is a Brock that you should buy with the intention of driving and not storing! In our Kingsgrove, Sydney showroom for your inspection. (Ref. 5299)
