It is a fake. The vn ss group A is very rare car and I don't think someone would only want 12,500 for 1 of only 300 in Australia.. if the person lives near by go see the car and check out the badges and other sorts of things that group As have.

A 16 year old should not be able to own one of these machines, you can't handle it and will end up wrapping one of the amazing cars arouind a pole, not to mention thinking of modifying it ARE U THAT STUPID?

I think all you young fellas should go and buy something like a datsun for a first car not a streetable race car.

I agree that a 16 yr old owning a group A for a first car is stupid, I mean I'm 19 and own a worked VN SS 5sp and trust me its enough power, but then again its my first car too and mines at 230 kw and Group A's are 215kw... its not the power that's the main problem (if you can drive it safely) but the fact of how rare the group A's are.
... I wish I owned one... : (

I own Group A 406 of 302 built, with only 59,000 kms on the clock.
Always wanted one and finally got one after a long wait to find one at the right price and condition.
I get a little annoyed with the high prices that Walkys are selling at these days and know that the VN SS GROUP A is a much better car in every aspect.
Prices are slowly going up and parts off of stollen or wrote off VN Group A's such as the twin throts are selling up and over 10grand.
Remember people that the VN SS Group A was the first Aus car to have a six speed gearbox in it, and was the most expensive car Holden/HSV/ Australia had released at that stage.
I love mine and have had only minor trouble.
If you've got one, keep it. It will be worth a mint in a few years because they really are the last true Australian muscle car.

I noticed people referring for example to car #374 of 300 built, how does that work?
22nd Jul 2007, 03:09
There were only 302 built, but numbers were applied to the cars in any order.. As they expected to sell all 500 it wouldn't have mattered. But only 302 sold.. So the build numbers ended up being scattered and not in any order...

Thanks to everyone for spotting this vehicle. In case others haven't spoken to the police, I've submitted these details to the NSW Police Crime Stoppers website. Hopefully they can catch the people responsible.

I'd appreciate being sent the email address, as I've supplied my details to NSW Police, and I'll pass on any relevant information should they get back in touch.
Unfortunately I can't contact the owner of the vehicle, as I don't require contact details from comment posters.

Hi everyone, and thanks for all the help.. But I was also contacted by Vic police regarding Ebay.. The Campbelltown police are investigating... But I feel it is a hoax ad that's been placed.. The pics are from an auction that was on Ebay about 2 weeks ago.. That car sold for $47500 from a seller at Bass Hill.. The same pics have been used as well as some of the written parts of the original ad.. I have sent the seller an email and it seems that he is in the US, not Burwood, Vic as the ad says.. :( But will have to wait and see what turns up..??

This bloke on ebay tried to sell that Group A to me, but I did my homework and his story (how he got the car) was very suspect. Then I saw this forum, and mate I have reported him to ebay for selling stolen goods. I hope he gets locked up and that poor bugger gets his baby back, hopefully intact, and not damaged.
All the best mate.

Re: Auction on Ebay, it's a common scam, they are usually after a cash deposit of $500 or something... If it's too good to be true, don't ever hand over a dollar until your sitting in the car and you've done a stolen check. $47K? Is that the going price now? How many K's had it done?

Hi, I'm a 20yr old mechanic and was very keen on turning my VN SS into a Group A mock up, but after reading all these comments, I think by the time I take it for the first drive after it's done, I won't be owning it for too long. Please advise me what you think I should do, probably just leave it as an SS? Or what is a real legend car that I can mock up that some cheapskate isn't going to try and steal!

Way back in 1994 I had my VN Group A stolen, never to be seen again, and later I found out that the VN is very easy to start without keys, and even with an alarm, so if you have a genuine one, don't leave it anywhere! And get a tracker so the scum don't destroy this classic without it at least having a chance.
And by the way, I'm thinking of selling my VE 2 GTS manual, and I'll get another VN Group A to store and covet, and won't modify it.
