Very Simple answer to that one. The Polarizer was part of an optional package known as the Plus Pack.

Also if theres Peter Brocks signature on the SS Group A sticker on the front guards then its a plus pack(plus the polariser under the bonnet) Holden Group A minus the polariser the signature should be underneath the SS Group A,only going on what a mate with a SS VL Group A once told me years ago. I'm sure Corsa will correct me if i'm wrong.

I'm pretty sure that there was also a "Plus Pack" sticker that was on the front nosecone also. Either way they are a stunning car

I believe there have been other devices similar to the polarizer tested over the years some well and trully after the brock one. Someone i use to work with looked into investing in it. Although even he laughed at the brock claims of molecular alighnment,better fuel use etc or what ever.The device he looked at had some researched merit.I think it consentrated on electrical charge of the car or something.Not sure on the details.So although brock did lose the plot he may not have been to far away from a valid idea.

I've been doing some research on the brock/holden VL SS Group A-looks like i could be wrong about the signature only on the pluspack and kalais6 you are correct about the sticker on the nose cone.here are some pics i have found. holden VL SS Group A pluspack Brock

Half of the non plus pack models have ended up with the signatures on the side so you can forget using that as a way to identify them. Original Build Sheets would be the best way, but certain other features can be used as a good indication although it is possible they could have been replicated since new. I have owned both polarized and non Polarized Brock's. At the end of the day the ones with the polarizers will hold a higher value due to the novelty value. I won't comment on how the Polarizer is suppose to work as you might as well ask me to explain the universe to you.
Sly is on the right track, as many others have tried similar ideas and there are many products on the market using similar methods in one form or another.

I remember about 6 years ago when i was selling Holdens for a local dealership we had a Plus Pack on consignment. I was the only guy in the yard that understood what it was that we had in front of us. This car was stunning and only had 22000kms on it. Luckily I got to drive it quite a few times and loved every second of it. Back then I think the guy was asking $25K for it !!! Just about double that for them now.

They are going for more than that with those kms on it!

I was replying to the link you posted about the one you saw for sale the other daybuild number 109.It was only $17000 back in September and now they're asking $45000 for the same car????Thats a big jump in price.The one in WA sounded like a steal back then going on the condition and k's.
