Vendor Notes:
The car was purchased as a shell in 1988 which was from the firewall to the rear boot including both doors and trims. There was never an original motor or transmission – only the raw undercoat grey shell.

The car was rebuilt and engineered by a qualified mechanic and re-registered in 1989/1990. At this point the car was sent to the Victorian Police inspection branch where the ownership was verified, the VIN was restamped as V892789P. The car was taken to Vic Roads where all modifications were verified. The car was accepted as roadworthy and issued with registration OJT398.

The car remained registered until 2005 and transferred to club registration in 2006.

Original production plates and VIN details on the vehicle are reflected on the Holden Historical Services Production Report 0233702920H.

Our brother Chris was a passionate Holden Monaro enthusiast. He purchased this shell and meticulously re-engineered the shell to become the current modified streetcar it is today. He maintained a written record of all parts and money that he spent as he worked on this project. He passed away unexpectedly on 02.02.2023.

As well as being a member of the Monaro Club, he would take this car to car shows and exhibitions.

The car was used in a lap of honour in 1998 at the Holden Monaro 30th Anniversary celebrations at Airworld Wangaratta and at the Peter Brock Memorial at Bathurst in 2008.
