Sold new by United Motors of Adelaide. The part owner of United Motors at the time was Vin Kean, who worked with Peter Brock to develop the highly successful Holden Dealer Team with both race cars and road cars.. The salesman who sold the car new remembers this car and tells us the buyer was a close friend of Peter Brock, we hold information from the salesman about this car.
A very interesting Peter Brock/HDT (Holden Dealer Team) inspired vehicle.
We understand from the present owner that not only was he the original owner of the car, it then passed into someone else's ownership, before being re purchased by the original owner, who then embarked on a complete restoration.
