      Yeah not the same car. Mine had about 131k on it when I sold it. Despite the higher kms mine was also much nicer overall condition than that one.

      What could have been hey. There's actually a story on my car with the new owner in the current issue of unique cars. Some nice photos of it.

        Iirc #002 was retained by HSV, pretty sure John Crennan used it. #001 was retained by Holden, I believe it went to Detroit for several years. Can't recall which car went to the Sultan of Brunei. I recall the 2 black Toohey's cars were single digit builds and began life as press cars, and were resprayed black by Toohey's for the promotion.
        Build's #001-010 were consecutive builds, select customer's could elect an out of sequence build number if desired. Because the Grp A was built on the Berlina later cars gained climate control which was a running change during VN production. However it's not unusual to see a low build number car with climate control.

          That's why I said "This isn't the same one"

              This stirred up some memories... A mate of mine was charged with the task of preparing and promoting these for Tooheys at the time.

                Nope the tooheys cars were 3 digit build cars, and VN group A build numbers were random, only 302 cars built and some of those had numbers over 302, when production was stoppped Holden/SV offered the owners the opportunity to have the number changed on their car to reflect the overall build numbers!

                  There is a super low K one in Canberra but. I feel like 25k on it. It came to the ACT Holden Day a few years back but I haven't seen it since.
                  It's still owned by the original owner I am led to believe and still here, I'd say keeps a low profile considering what the $ value is now.
