VL Group 3

The VL Group 3 was realeased just three months after the controversial Director and was one of the Post Holden/Brock era cars. As such, Brock was forced to buy his cars without the backing of the factory, which meant soaring prices for the consumer.

vlgroup3_blue

Due in part to the pricing and the Brock/Holden split, only 38 of the VL SS Group 3’s were built. All were Berlina based, white in colour (although there was one light blue, one burgundy one and even a red wagon) and featured the grey interior. Most of the vehicles sold were also fitted the three speed Trimatic gearbox as the Borg Warner T5 5 speed gearbox added a further $4455 to the price tag, making a Group 3 with Central locking worth $45108

vlgroup3_rearbadge

Outside, the car featured the one peice grill, similar to the one used on the Director and Aero (but protrudes less than the Director and Aero version), LE side skirts, a new front bumper featuring 3 air inlets and a lower version of the Group A’s boot spoiler. Wheels were the familiar Aero’s but had the vanes machined into a curved feature.

Of note is the fact that there was not a Holden Badge to be seen on these cars.
