Peter Brock, the famed Holden Racing Team driver, left more than an impression on the Australian motorsports community. He’s still well regarded, and respected by legions of HRT fans. Therefore, you can imagine any memorabilia of the late driver is very sought after. His 1984 VK Holden Commodore SS is no different.
Practical Motoring reports Brock’s VK Commodore is heading to auction, and fans are already lining up to own the vehicle. Brock owned this 1984 Commodore SS during his time running Holden Dealer Team, or HDT.
“As confirmed in a letter on HDT letterhead signed by Brock, the white VK Commodore SS being auctioned – build was originally his General Motors-provided company car that he immediately built into a Group 3. It then was used for studio photography and became the HDT Press vehicle. HDT Special Vehicles then purchased the Group 3 SS Commodore ((build No 1354) at the end of its media duties and it became Brock’s personal transport for some time. It is now being offered for sale by its second owner, who purchased it directly from Brock, accompanied by the letter confirming its provenance,” Shannons Sydney Auction stated.
The auction group is expecting the historic Commodore to sell for $80,000 to $100,000 AUD, and will cross the block on May 30, 2016.
If that’s not enough, there’s another more obscure piece up for grabs too, equally as important. The 1984 Opel Monza coupe, developed by Brock and HDT as a prototype for future endeavors, will also be present. It’s expected selling price is in the $100,000 to $120,000 AUD range.
