I'm not looking at what's actually been done to the cars since new, just what they left the factory as.

If you have a 1988 Calais Wagon (or know someone who does) I would like to get good readable photo's of your option plates (the one that lists Model, Body No., Trim, Paint etc.). Either that, or just copy down the numbers and post them here. Even if you hear of a wrecker thats trashed one it would be worth seeing if they kept records of them.

Model - VL8VL35-A9Y
Body No. -
Trim -
Paint -
Built -

Eng. -
Trans. -
Axle -

A registration number would be handy if you're comfortable posting that here. If not, just the state the car is registered in would be great.

I'll post up a running total as I get more feedback about them -

================================================== ================================================== ===

Number of cars up to Post #845 (30/12/12) - 103 confirmed of the 200 built.

1 Alpine White
40 Imperial Blue
62 Cardinal Red

18 Turbo (14 Red, 4 Blue)
31 V8 (18 Blue, 13 Red)
54 Non-Turbo (35 Red, 18 Blue, 1 White)

Only four blue turbo's, and one VERY rare white n/a that wasn't supposed to have existed.
All built between February - April 1988.

Thanks.
Craig

Are there any details of the super rare alpine white A9Y? was it special in any other way? I wonder if it makes the total 201?

Not really. It was sold in Adelaide in August 2009 by a car yard. I went and had a look at it at the time. It was getting a little ratty, but normal for a car that had just been driven.

It does bring that total into question, and makes you wonder if there one or two more special colour orders.

Any chance you can post up your details ?
The list has been running for a while now so if you can post up the numbers I might be able to give you a bit more history on it if we've seen it before.

it looked to be missing a ot of factory parts that would be hard to track down. and it presented very poorly in the pictures. I'm glad someone purchased it but t that price they will still throw bucketloads more into it to gt it upto scratch.
