I know that Walkies 1-100 had their engines built by Larry Perkins Racing. And they were alot more refined than there Holden built counterparts. More precise clearances for one.

That sound's about right, NZ VLTURBO, and also, the last 250 were apparently hurriedly slapped together for some quick sale's

That would've been the one as it was the last remaining brand new one. Must have been sold to a cashed collector as I don't see the point of using that car on the street

I was thinking no one in their right mind would pay that kind of money for that i mean sure its a walky but 75K 8O
I bet the dealer that has got it got is for tax purposes so he can say nah i cant pay this tax cose ive got this car worth 75K that i cant sell so dont tax me cose ive still got all this stock to clear up!!!!! Could this be the case, just remember dont give me 2 much **** cose i really have no idea about how tax works i mean ive never paid it in my life yettt :P

the protoype engine built by HDT was fitted to a VK SS Commodore.

Here is a pic and brief write up:

Sorry for large pic but someone requested a high res version.

It wouldn't have been $75k. As I recall from Street Commodores a few year's back, it was closer to $50k or so

Let's face it there may be several Walkys around that aren't new ( never sold) and in the garages of collectors. A brand new one is really one that has never been sold to anyone, not just one with little or no kms.

I did read that there was a walky in storage with about 3 kms on it if that.

the side skirts and front lips are off the car as they came assembled as they are a dealer fitted option, but im pretty sure it was bought as original as it can be.

If you open the car i bet you get the new car smell still......

I think i read it on autospeed.. not sure, as it was a while ago.

I read in street commodores, that there are a couple around which are basically still wrapped in plastic and stored in a shed.

that car above sounds like the one that was for sale for 50k west of sydney at the dealer. someone has bought it and now theyre trying to offload for $75k?

there was also a guy who wrote in a letter to street commos saying he bought a walky brand new, put it on a trailor, took it to his parents place, stuck it on stands and it hasn't moved since, and it has 20kms on teh clock. has all original paperwork/advertising material/pamphlets etc.

ffffaaaaarrrrkkk now thats keen throwing it on stands and never driving it, i just can't justify spending big bucks on a car and throwin it in a garage to make it a shelf. Just like a mate of mine his old man bought a GTHO back in the hay days drove it for a bit rebuild it about 6 times after it got ripped and now all it does is it collects ducst bird **** and used as a storage shelf in his garage

Some people can afford to keep a collectable in the garage all while also owning another ride for daily commuting

A few days ago i got told about a genuine GTHO Phase 3 a mate of mine has just looked at.

It was in a garage behind a garage behind a garage! Have to remove the side of the garage to get it out even!

It's started every week but has been on blocks for over 10 years.

Only about 10-15,000 miles on it and he tells me it's absolutely brand new condition with even the stamps from the factory still on it!!

Hate to think what it would be worth but I asked him to pass on my offer of $50K

My mate's old man has also got an XY GT HO Phase 3 in the garage. The car hasn't been started in many many year's and as for leaving the garage, it's been a good decade, so these sort of car's definately do exist.

That walky for 75k has never been sold, origianally delivered to the dealership, never sold, as it say, still has the plastic on the seats with the lower lips in the plastic and not attatched.
