065
067
072
074 (Undergroing Colour Change to Panorama Silver, Group A Bodykit and Trim)
085 (Last Seen 2005)
111 (Last seen early 90's)
114
115 (Brock Commodores Forum Member's Car, No photographs.)
018
120 (Panorama Silver, Group A Bodykit Custom Trim, EFI)
148
___ (SV304 plates, Polished Simmons, Custom Trim EFI)

Love the SV88, wouldn't hesitate to own one if I could afford to. Oh well, I have a 5L Calais, that's about as close as I'll ever get.

Good thread, Im going to SV88 badge mine soon, there are so many calais replicas out there.
These were probably the first holdens to be optioned with fax machines and brick mobile phones.
Do you know what radio they got smoked?

Radio wise, Corsa would know more. If its the same as the F20 it was the 'SV' Dot Matrix Eurovox...

Holden had the Mobile Phone pictured in the Aug 87 Calais brochure and there were a few HDT's that had them prior to HSV starting up. SV88 would have been first with Fax machine. Be interesting to know just how many portable fax machines ever got sold for any type of car.

Eurovox 8280 is the radio that the SV88 had. From what i have heard there are quite a few SV88 owners chasing them.

Interesting considering it has a build plate thats says SV88 but I cant see it affecting its value, it might increase it a bit if it has twin throttle body injection.

Could have been done a long time ago when neither SV88 or Walkys were anything special

I'd be asking to see a build plate pic on that one. Could be another variation on an SV CC but the Calais rims wouldn't be likely original.

I think the moulds and bumpers were a Jewel blue but the rims were body color coded.
Even the walky wheel was color coded to compliment the blue seats, these are a cheap way to get into a virtual Brock.
