VH Group 3

This VH Group 3 was the all out model available in the VH range and first introduced in Late 1982 in either white or red. Unlike the VC, The VH Brock range came in three models, consisting of the Group 1 (4.2L engine only), Group 2 (4.2L engine only) and the Group 3 (available with the 4.2L and 5.0L engines) detailed here.
It belongs to a mate , Craig, and at the moment he has put the Red beast off the road and into storage. Hes owned the Group 3 for 10 + years now. He has taken great care of it, and wants to keep it as Original as possible.

Like most Brocks, the VH was available to order, so a few cars left the HDT workshop with a few custom features, such as the flared guards from the VC, stroker engines and you could even option your car with Stratos seats. Wind splitters on the front guards for the first time were a standard feature.

Brock also made a few High Output examples of the VH which were identified by the Red Momo steering wheel with a white Peter Brock Signature, but there was only about 9 of these ever made.
