If I had the money I'd take a serious look at it. My Calais wasn't a HSV or that nice but had some work done and was a heap of fun to drive.

Looking for a SV88 anywhere in oz for sale

Hi guys, new to this site....I am on a mission to own a SV88. I have just done a full restoration on a 1963 beetle http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/paxto...upe/1038143366
I have just listed it on gumtree.

once i sell my beetle i will be on the hunt for one of these gems (SV88) I would love to get one that needs some work to save on the cost / buy price but lets see whats out there. anyone know of any for sale....(apart from the one currently on Gumtree for 35K)

Regards
Terry

Too rare, rarer than an HDT, you need to keep scanning the classifieds for a resto in need of help, even then you would struggle for originality, how would you go restoring a Walky steering wheel in blue?
Good luck finding an SV88 brick phone, gotta love eighties stuff.

I don't like the non original engine bay chrome, recovered black walky wheel, non color coded rims and lack of boot lip, 35K is creeping towards HDT offerings.
Still a nice VL but would be PMing him offers.

hi,

long time no post, we might be selling SV88 #30 soon.

the only original item missing from the car is the OE boot lid spoiler its got an HDT one instead, other original parts to go with it too such as OE steering wheel and stereo.

Has a built 355 with VN heads and TH350 installed, however we still have original motor and trans if you wished to return it to concourse.

No hurry to sell at the moment but get in touch if it sounds like a car you might be interested in. Would like it to go to an enthusiast who knows what it is just like my brother has cared for it the last 10+ years.

cheers

I'm pretty sure I've seen this a couple of times in the last couple of years. Once around The western suburbs and another when it was going into a public car park in the city.

I remember saying to myself, how could you do that lol.
