Thanks Brandon. These n/a's keep popping up out of the woodwork. There was also another one on Ebay recently with a fresh paint job that looked nice. That's three this week.

Thanks Jason. Yours is still a very rare one, especially if it has a HDT build plate on the firewall. I only know of a couple of those around the place.
Sorry to hear about the accident, it looked to be in great shape.

It'd be great if you could get some more details or pics of it. Maybe leave a note pointing the owner to this thread/site.

Finally added the details of my VL Calais Turbo Wagon. I've owned it for nearly four years now and am apparently the third owner. It's still nearly stock (3" exhaust and Strengthened, Shift Kitted Auto With 3000 rpm Stall) but will get a front mount fitted in the next couple of weeks and a new engine within the next few months (quite probably the one from LAGWGN) that will be making a ****load more power.
It had the sunroof option box ticked when bought new (shame it didn't get the LSD diff one ticked as well/instead) and I'd be curious to see if anyone knew how many of the Calais Wagons left the factory with a sunroof.

Model - VL8VL35-A9Y
Body No. - 277963-A
Trim - 15I
Paint - 2F 020-D
Built - MAR 88

Eng. - LW5
Trans. - MS1
Axle - GM 3






I'd love to hear from anyone else that has a Calais Turbo Wagon from WA as well. I'll start a thread soon detailing the history (under my ownership at least) of my pride and joy.

Thanks Graeme. That's perfect. Another turbo for the list.
There are two other CT members who have Calais turbo wagons on here so you may get a couple of PM's. In fact, of the four Calais wagons I have down in WA so far, at least three of them are turbo's, including yours.

Yours is also the only Calais wagon I have listed so far with a factory sun roof.

Thaks for keeping an eye out. Both are relisted. The red one actually looks really nice. It's an ex-Qld country car that was advertised early last year and looks to be everything the seller says it is.


New totals up too. Check the first post on page 1.
