Yeah they had the front lip, boot spoiler, different interior, paint options were red or white, FE2 suspension, 290mm front brakes, special 15" wheels. I think that's all, I always leave something out. Oh my dad's also has different wing mirrors, but I think that's just it being series 1.

You sure they V8 brakes? I thought the V8 ones were fluted like the turbo ones? My GTS didn't have them. Most my GTS stuff has found its way into the bin anyway! Oh, they also had the letterbox style grill and Momo steering wheel. Dunno bout anyone else, but mine had the crazy red "Commodore" filler panel between the taillights. You can see my before pics here;

Dunno about the calipers but I'm pretty sure the disks are 290mm (havnt actually measured though ) And yeah I forgot about the letterbox grill, steering wheel and red filler panel (the red filler panel is listed as an option for any car in a little book I have)

Yeah Mike, I dunno how many times this has come up
I hope to someday have some pics of my Dad's GTS cause it has LE sideskirts and rear bar aswell and it looks way better (he doesn't have the red filler panel on it anymore though, it was cracked) he's waiting for a friend of his to fix all the plastic bits.

Slower than i'd like! Car is pretty much all panel beaten and ready for paint. Have trial fitted the rb25det, cooler and piping is being done in next couple of weeks. Brakes overhauled, now has VT fronts, disk rear with slotted rotors all round. New shocks, Nolathane throughout, bigger sway bars. The list goes on! Basicly a complete rebuild. I'm hoping to get it into the paint shop real soon and I can start putting the thing back together!
The filler panels are tricky to get off, I broke mine slightly, but luckily you can't see it. Think you need to remove two bolts from inside the boot, then two screws from the tops of the taillights. When I first got my car it had a strip light behind the garnish which lit up when the lights were on!
I think the garnishes are from VKs, I've seen a couple with em on. The GTS badge is also from a Monaro or something, date stamp on the back is 1978 from memory.

**** all i ment guys was my VL gear box is fine,as the msg was "ALL" vl gear boxes make noise.haha
and yes the VL GTS thing has been debated many times!!lots of myths aswell.
But remember the motors are the same,no cam diff.
just bought a ECU chip for mine,so see how tht goes with the K & N filter and free flow exhaust.

Hey, I actually saw one of these at a wreckers i was at the other day - it seemed to be in good condition. I was actually after a completely black one - like VK Berlina etc. NOT the VL spec one with the grey on the top and bottom!

I can find out how much they want for it if ya like!

Let me know,


Jason

Just spray one, it'll look nice and fresh! And I put that reverse light lense to the side somewhere.. where that is, I need to remember.
