Holden VC HDT Brock Commodore, Palais white
You may be aware that the release of the white HDT VC Commodore has been subject to quality issues. We have gone thru many and they are all slightly affected. Its mainly the rear wing and flare fitment. I feel they still display well, but understand collectors may not want to buy one. We are happy to sell our stock with the understanding that they are about 80% of what a perfect model may have been. If you buy one and wish to return it, you will need to ship back to us at your expense.
Biante have retired this model due to the mould quality, and will restart the whole process in making the model with new technology. I think its going to take 3-5 years before we see any more VC HDT Commodores produced
1:18 scale. The change in the market and approach from the manufacturers was clear after Holden pulled its funding from motorsport at the end of the 1979 season and as a result of this, Peter Brock purchased the Holden Dealer Team. In order to fund the racing team, Brocks team along with a network of Holden Dealers conceived a plan where modified road cars would be designed and built by Brock and HDT Special Vehicles were born. The VC HDT was the first example of one of these cars being produced. With heavy mechanical modifications and exterior styling by design guru Leo Pruneau. To make the car appear similar to the Group C cars seen on the race track, the VC HDT both looked and drove significantly better than the stock standard Commodore from which it was based. The 4.2 litre V8 was upgraded to a 5.0 litre V8 and that, alongside a raft of other upgrades saw the performance improve significantly. Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, highly detailed engine bay, interior and outstanding finishing, this is a model that shouldnt be missed by any Holden or muscle car fan.
