History of the VH Group 3 Brock Commodore
The VH Group 3 is the most highly specified of the VH Group series. Based on a powerful 4.2-litre eight-cylinder, the Group 3 was equipped with all of the same specifications as the VC and was fitted with 15×7 inch wheels and Uniroyal Wildcat 60 series tyres. The body of this particular model boasts more enhancements than its predecessors, including a lower front air dam, side skirts, rear apron, fly through rear deck spoiler and large rearward-facing bonnet scoop. The Group 3 was also available with a 180-kW (245 hp) 5.0 L V8 and although it was initially sold in Maranello Red, it was also later available in Alabaster White. The last of the white VHs were painted in Alpine White before the introduction of the VK model.
VH buyers also had options when it came to wheels, seats and engines. Options available for their car purchase included 16-inch Centra road wheels and Stratos sports seats. For those wanting that extra kick, a high-output option was available for the 5-litre engine, but only a handful of cars would be built with this. Some of the cars came fitted with the VC’s wheel arch flares and stroker engines.
