hey guys just curious if anyone can help, im looking at what appears to be a genuine sv88 but its been stolen, then recovered. the 2 large option plates are missing. I have the vin number(small tag above is still there) the body number and the engine number. the radio even has sv88 badge. can someone shed some light or point me on the right path.

Cheers eddie

Ring HSV and tell them you want to verify a VL SV88 and supply them with the tag number. (eg. L123456)
If it is an SV88 with the two credit card sized plates missing then there should also be evidence of where the HSV build plate used to be. The radios do not have SV88 on them but there should be an SV88 badge on the dash above the glovebox.

More likely they couldn't be bothered looking it up.
They found the F20 eventually many years ago and i know they checked an SV CC recently when pushed. All their 17 digit VIN vehicles are on computer (VN onwards) and for the VL they only seem to like verifying the 750 Walkinshaw models as the rest of them are listed seperately.

Why does the sv88 in the last pic have a calais badge on the guard and not the sv badge? Is it a factory option or is the car a mock up? And the red pin stripe on top of the door moulds?

One possibility is when people respray their cars they can't find the correct badges for the side and the pin stripe is too much hard work for them to replicate.

Got a feeling that 007 is the re bodied one I'm looking at, is there any way to find out its correct vin and or engine number to see for sure? I know obviously the vin is different but would be good to know what is was in case hsv can chase it up and see if that car is indeed carrying 007's engine etc. I could also check pprs to Check if its registered at written off which would at least clear up one spot on the list.
