one five five should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Harvey, from memory, has said that #05 is in the museum. The Bertie St investigation leaves little doubt, as does the AMC one.

The Chickadee Commodore was raced into 1987 by Grice, and was later raced by Derek Bailey in the late-80s and early-90s in Sports Sedan events in NSW. Not sure how original that makes it from it's Bathurst win

All this doesn't help the mystery much though?

According to a V8 Sleuth article. It did the Adelaide F1 support races after Bathurst and then retired by HRT. To this day retained by the Walkinshaw family.

Probably about as original as you'll get, compared to the others.

I think GRM retired their 2000 winning VT straight after the race and it remains exactly as it crossed the line. Although its post 93.

The cars Mr Perkins has restored, and in the process of restoring, are as close to original as possible. Matching numbers engines, gearboxes, even un-modifying the rollcage in one chassis.

I have to admit that FB page gives me a chubby, and a big smile.

You’re not the only one. Especially enjoy the photos from yesteryear.

The Walkinshaw family don't own the 1990 winner any more. Interesting that they sold it.

I'd say he's kept quiet, primarily because of the value at stake.

The Mort (who also built the VK's) did speak out about it in AMC magazine though:

Wow, that's an interesting read & does create some doubt as most I have seen online have said the one being auctioned is #25.

The issue I have with Lloyds is their guy on Gold Coast 9 News saying " this is the race car (XU1) that Brock won his 1st Bathurst in".
Champion's display clearly had it as a replica (albeit a genuine XU1)
