VK HDT Brock Commodore SS Replica

Work Carried Out

This example of the VK HDT Brock Commodore SS Replica was a turn-key project painted in 2K Alpine White with the jams, boot and engine bay painted in the original acrylic used by Holden on the production line to enhance the authenticity of the build. Finest restorations sourced multiple Peter Brock parts including the Eurovox stereo, 380mm Momo steering wheel, genuine HDT body kit, Peter Brock HDT Scheel seats with the interior being retrimmed from top to bottom using the correct loop pile carpet Cerulean Velour and Herringbone inserts. The engine was freshened to include VK Group A spec roller rockers, Group A spec cam 955 manifold, Qudrajet with HDT Dizzy, all mated to a rebuilt T5 gearbox and rebuilt 10 bolt LSD with 3.08 ratio. Also attended to were electric brakes with the only non-HDT feature added being the Simmons Wheels opted for by the owner.

History of the Peter Brock HDT VK SS

Holden made the decision to drop the SS name for the new VK model, but after seeing its value, HDT adopted it as their base model vehicle for the VK series. Featuring a distinct ‘SS’ logo, stripe, 15inch aero wheels and the same boot spoiler as seen on the Group 3, the was a head-turner. The interior features HDT Scheel seats with the rear trimmed to match, a 380mm Momo Steering Wheel as well an HDT gearknob. The engine is the same as Group 3 and produces 177kws. It’s mated to an M21 4 Speed Transmission and a 3.08 limited-slip differential, which further increases the car’s speed capacity by 35%.

Many customers opted for the SS body kits and 16-inch wheels in addition to their purchase, but the base variant had only minimal styling enhancements
