Not sure on the specifics, but it was from that era.

It is portrayed as the one Brock drove against AJ in 1982 (which was later sold to Bryan Thomson and turned into a Supra, owned by the Wall's since 1990), yet is the one that was supposed to driven in IMSA by Brock and raced once in Brock's hands in a plain red livery sporting #27.
Yep - you're right. The actual Monza raced against AJ in 1982 is easy to spot due to the windscreen curving around inside the A pillars. Bloody cleverly built car that one, Pat Purcell really delivered with it.

Expectations for the sale of the 1984 VK Group C car is now being revised to $2M +.

If 25 is worth 2m, what value would be on 05

A whole lot more you would think, but then how much?

Luckily for the Bathurst museum, the value of their donation would now be 'priceless'.

During the last ever Group C Race - Brock: "Perhaps one of my cars will finish up in a museum; the other car may finish up just getting stripped and used for bits and pieces, maybe it will be sold":

The firewall chassis number (#7) which authenticates it back to the original HDT build; plus all the ($$$) restoration work involved bringing it back to 1984-race condition - surely makes it worth an awful lot.

It's being pushed as the actual #05.

You'd want to make 100% sure it is what you say it is, before commanding that kind of money.

The #25 car was damaged in the rear left quarter panel at Bathurst.

The car on display at the Bathurst Motor racing museum should show no signs of repair. I am not sure if this has ever been investigated.

Those who should know which car is which, aren't letting the truth be known.

But the 05 car also had damage on the LHS rear quarter:
