Hi all thought i would you let you all in on my very very rare group a wagon. So basiclly its a 1989 vn hsv sv le group a wagon, (long name hey) its build number 34. there were 80 sv le wagons to be produced but not sure how many actually ended being produced. As for mine it was a one off built by hsv it has factory fitted:
group a body kit
genuine group a 17\8 inch rims
group a brakes
lsd 3:45 gears
and most importantly 4 bolt mains twin throttle body group a engine!
the only thing it didnt get from the group a sedans is the zf 6 speed
basically I have everything log books the works!

Definatley a different car then, but in that case, there must be at least 2 produced as the durif red one has all the same stuff yours has, still a very rare machine. Hows the pics coming along?

wow with twin throttles? i thought the vn le wagons were pretty much the predecessor to mantas, 80 made, entry level 8cyl hsvs. but this is a group a vn sv le wagon... so were there maybe only a few with group a options from the 80 vn sv le wagons made?

btw i just bought seats from a vn sv le wagon the guy hit a kangaroo i might be able to pass on his mobile number (assuming i get his permission) so you can get parts if you want?

There is no such thing as a VN Group A wagon. It's more than likely a VN HSV SV LE Wagon with TTB fitted

VN Group A's were only built to meet homologation rules so I don't see why they would build any auto wagons

Have you got paper work from HSV stating the TTB manifold was fitted from factory?

hey cheers for the comments guys! It is very rare and impossible to find parts and stuff for it I'm very picky with cars and I'm not happy unless there perfect, so planing on getting it resprayed and all the usual! theres nothing wrong with the paint and driveline its immaculate, I'm just too picky plus I'm going to put in shows and stuff. It gets heaps of attention no matter where i go!! Big thanks 88tbo!
cheers guys will keep you updated as i go

Loki

p.s will post pics of some of the other cars i got hiding around u won't be disapointed!

Why would you respray it if theres nothing wrong with it... its only going to devalue it plus cost you money to do so? Original cars are worth more than rebuilt / resprayed ones.

If it were mint and the paint was fine, theres no way in hell I'd respray it!!

Nice car you have mate, but i'd say she's just a regular SV LE wagon that someone has fitted with all that gear, its not factory done, there's a few giveaways. Dealer, possibly, but not off the production line.
Holy crap it is mint but, look at that trim! VERY nice car
