VH Group Three HDT Peter Brock Commodore Replica

With only 19 vehicles to ever be built, Finest Restorations was briefed on a turn-key build for this VH Group Three HDT Peter Brock Commodore Replica. This vehicle needed to have every Brock option and original HDT part from when the car was originally built. The team was able to source multiple unheard-of parts and options including NOS Peter Brock HDT and GMH parts. Before the process of painting, hours were spent fitting genuine parts to perfection including an HDT body kit and sunroof, full factory upgraded high output Eurovox stereo and Eurovox equaliser, HDT optioned Stratos front seats and HDT 16” Centra optioned wheels. The Finest Restorations team swung into action with a build of the stroker engine and driveline as per HDT original specs, consisting of a T5 5 speed and upgraded VL Turbo diff shortened to 10 bolt VH Commodore track with 3.45 ratio upon the owner’s request.

Further work carried out included upgraded VL Brakes, VL Group A Plus Pac upgraded sway bars and springs, Bilstein suspension and new fuel and brake lines. This build like many of our HDT car builds included factory underbody markings.

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.
