1980 Holden Commodore VC HDT

Spotted this HDT VC for sale on Grays.com in April 2021. Very rare, and price expected to go much higher (when I spotted this, bids were only up tp $34,500. One of only 39 Manuals in Tuxedo black. The VC HDT’s origins came about from the need to fund the newly purchased HDT Race Team. All production models were either Palais White, Firethorn Red or Tuxedo Black, based on the Marlboro colours. All vehicles featured the Carmine coloured interior and were all SL/E based, so came with the crushed velour interior, Air conditioning, Front headlight wipers, chrome trim (including the outer edges of the front grille), central locking, front & rear reading lights, electric windows and dual pipe exhaust system. 500 of these vehicles were built and the cars were available with either the M21 manual transmission or the TH350 3 speed automatic. Engine improvements to the 5.0 litre engine included a new cold air induction system which drew air from behind the passenger side headlight, chrome air cleaner lid and rocker covers, as well as gas flowed cylinder heads and port matched inlet manifold. Other custom features were the HDT footrest, Momo Steering wheel (which wore the vehicles build number) and some suspension work to make the cars handle as well as they went.
