Has it been written off at some stage and repaired?
I've always wanted to know if this was the case or was it a story.

Interesting to see hsv has it for 7-8 months after it was built in Nov 87.

Please note: I am not trying to discredit this car or the sellers name
As this is the internet. It could all be hearsay. .

Further digging around returns some better info

Build 3/6/7 were red turbos
Some are saying build 3 was Harvey's car where this is build 7

Nice investigating calaist5!

So looks like it was a HSV company car, not an official F20. Still makes it a nice example in my books.
