1988 Holden VL Walkinshaw SS V8 listed with $1 million hopes, as 'bogan boom' rages on

A 1988 Holden VL Walkinshaw SS Group A homologation special has been listed for sale in NSW, with price expectations “in excess of $1 million.” Of the 750 Walkinshaw SS cars built, this example is number 439. The odometer has clocked just 1479km since new, and the vehicle appears to have never been registered – according to the seller, it is in "complete original condition."

Victorian government proposes military vehicle production at old Holden site
