Bent VK at Jagparts auction.

Can anyone tell me which car the bare shell at the 1990? jagparts auction was?
The car had had a big front hit and was bent on the left hand side.
It was just a shell.
I believe I own this shell, have receipts for this shell and was told by previous owner it came from the jagparts auction in early 1990's.
Does anyone know how it got bent? Which accident? And or who raced it and for which team?
Cheers.

G'day

The chassis number is: AVK 034357 on passenger side front strut tower and HDT COMM 8 on the inner side of driver side tower.
Was listed as an Ex HDT VK racing shell and was damaged on passenger side mainly. The front passenger rail has been repaired.
Was originally sold as a damaged HDT VK race shell in 1990 by jagparts and was then converted to full VL body and also converted to road car in NSW.

TWR VL - Have you checked Bertie Street? There are a couple of posts there that are possibly relevant. Before you can read them you will need to go through the full registration process with the site.

http://www.bertiestreet.com/forum/vi...hp?f=65&t=2089

and particularly the second and last posts on this thread
http://www.bertiestreet.com/forum/vi...hp?f=65&t=7173

I can only recall heavy crash damage on 2 Mobil VKs - the Moffat Bathurst one and the Gary Scott Lakeside practice incident. But I thought both of those chassis are accounted for?

Thanks lostcroc,
Will check the website out.
As I am lead to believe they are "accounted for" and that's my concern atm.
It's possible the car was re shelled and the new shell continued with the original log book.
I believe the two cars you speak of are one in the same.
Moffat car repaired and then smashed by Scott.
That's when I think the car was replaced and the original damaged shell was acquired by jagparts. It's also possible it went to Lansvale smash repairs and then to jagparts but that part I'm not 100 percent sure about. I do remember Paul telling me when i picked it up in 2010 that it was the original Moffat shell and he mentioned something about Lansvale smash repairs but i can't recall what it was.
The receipt i have says my chassis is the one sold at the jagparts auction and it was sold as a damaged ex HDT VK shell. I paid $13,500 for it in 2010 as a converted VL but he wrote the car down on my receipt as a VK with the chassis number AVK on my receipt and he even wrote the original cams cage number on the receipt. It had been converted to a road car and cage had been removed and discarded by that time but he had kept the cage number.
The chassis was sold to the guy i bought it from in NSW his name is Paul and it came from the jagparts auction and the persons name on that receipt is Gerald from Cronulla. Pauls original receipt from jagparts also said HDT VK shell damaged. I presumed it was a VL and didn't even notice the receipt saying AVK till later on as Paul just said it's the damaged Moffat shell from jagparts. Only later did i discover the repairs and panel changes and Pauls original receipt saying ex HDT VK shell.
Will keep you posted.
Thanks.

Hello Gentleman.

I know, massive thread revival.

I have stumbled upon a car, and i need some help identifying it! Any help would be appreciated.

Can anyone tell me what the following might be:

VL race chassis with Walkinshaw aero kit
Dual fuel filler in rear garnish.
Centre lock wheels.
Airjack feed point in front apron/grill ahead of bonnet.
Single door bar cross.
HDT logo in steering wheel.
Injected TWR engine.
Harrop rear axle with adjustable camber
Magnesium front uprights.

This car is not in Australia and has sat around since 1993.

Cheers
DMM

Hey guys,
I know this thread is really old, but I'm giving it a try.
I'm living in Norway and I friend of mine owns a Holden VK Commodore.
I don't know much about the car, but I'm sure it's genuine and the real deal.

It's looking exactly like this one.

I have no idea what it looked like back in the day, it's been wrapped with some new livery after it came to Norway.

I'll get you some photos in a few days!

Thanks

From the Barry Lake book 'Spotlight on Brock Commodores':

These surely would have been the 1986 ETCC cars, being built 'from scratch' side-by-side.
