Collecting Cars to auction iconic Brock VK

Online classic, performance and collectible car platform Collecting Cars is set to auction one of Australia’s most famous ex-company cars. Peter Brock’s personal HDT VK Group A SS, car number 005 is up for sale.

One of the 500 examples built by HDT to meet international Group A racing homologation requirements, this historically important example of the “Blue Meanie” was originally owned by Australia’s greatest touring car racing legend.

A four-speed manual example, it shows 79,724 kilometres on its odometer, and was built at the original HDT (Holden Dealer Team) workshops in Port Melbourne, Victoria in May 1985. The vehicle is being sold with a comprehensive document folio.

Within those documents is a HDT letter confirming it as initially being Peter Brock’s personal company car. The letter is signed by his long-time teammate, the late John Harvey. The car is currently located in Melbourne.

“This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Australian motoring history,” Asia-Pacific region boss for Collecting Cars, Lee Hallett said.

“If there is one Holden model that represents the best of Brock and the Commodore’s racing success it is the HDT VK Group A SS. And to own car 005 would be any dedicated Brock fan’s dream.”

The HDT VK Group A SS is widely regarded as the most famous Commodore model series created, thanks in large part to Peter Brock’s successful racing career with Holden. The limited-edition offering is instantly recognisable thanks to its distinct Formula Blue colour.

It’s that paintwork that is the inspiration for its nickname. This famous HDT-enhanced model series was fitted with a 4.9-litre Holden V8 engine that produced a peak power level of 196kW and peak torque of 418Nm.

An M21 four-speed manual gearbox was fitted as standard equipment; a T5 five-speed manual transmission was optionally available. You can view the listing on the Collecting Cars website. Bidding is now open.
