Even if you could get the numbers off it for now would be brilliant.

Thanks for your details. Also sent a PM. As for the red one you linked, it's been for sale on and off for about a year. Looks genuine but a bit of a dog.

Yep, the parts book says they were optional on the 1988 A9Y cars Marty, and to bear that out these cars had a different part numbered rear seat frame to any of the other wagons.

Item #43 (Seats Rear) on the PBS for the 1988 cars says "CAL".
I doubt yours would have had it being 1987 unless HDT welded some brackets in perhaps.

Notice rear seat head restraint and cover both listed for Production Option A9Y only -



Note pad and frame (this doesn't include the fabric) is seperate to all other wagons -

That'd explain why it popped up here this morning -

Sounds like someone has upset him.

I hate to hear stuff like this. Do you know much more about the car? Like if it was a genuine A9Y or if it was a turbo.
I guess even if it is a genuine A9Y and it's written off (which I bet it probably would've been), we can at least hope that no-one was too badly hurt.
If anyone knows anymore could they post it up please.

it used to be mine - i sold it to my wifes cousin about 6 weeks ago. He's ok but a bit shaken up.

It wasn't a genuine A9Y (V8 Berlina with a calais front), but a shame to see it gone... single vehicle accident - lost the back end clipped the curb, and flipped ... car is obviously a write off ... anybody got a good wagon shell going - hopefully going to re-shell it?

Not a bruise on him .... the roof was crushed down to the steering wheel at the front - the seat back broke so he kinda just laid flat until it stopped.

Had to kick out a side window to get out - but otherwise - no injury.

i'll try and get a pic off the car to post up, but it's pretty sad looking.

Thanks for your concern!

Jamie

Great to hear he's okay. As much as we love our cars I'm sure we can all appreciate that they're nothing at all compared to the value of a human life.
Sounds like he was lucky to escape unharmed with so much damage to the car. It's amazing how well seatbelts work (and that so many people still don't wear them ).
