I would like to see it proven in real,once a 5.0 auto is wound out you would be surprized what they could catch.
Come on,this is a VL site with no yellow BT1 pictures,where are they all?

just a bump to throw the spanner in the works.

I have recently got myself a Marinello Red V8 BT1
where on earth would they be from?
previous owner said a SA Sargent owned it?

Throw some pics up, there are a couple of people on here who could possibly verify it for you. Plus I'm sure like myself, others would love to see it.

I'd imagine it probably came from SA, Vic or possibly WA

unmarked cars came in lots of colours so no reason why it wouldn't be genuine

tags will verify anyway

LV2 is 304,
Early VK's were the last to get a 308.
Nitpicking I know, but it's a pet hate when people call the VL V8 a 308.

This was mine originally purchased back in 89 and sold a few years ago.
S.A ex chaser fitted with C.O.M.E racing 355 injected VP senator engine and interior. It would have been one of the first VL's to have a injected motor and SV interior back in 1991. I had Calais front end to go on but did not get round to putting it on. This was my daily for over 15 years.
There was a white / blue ones around at that time but never seen a yellow one.

This looks very nice. Shame I'm not looking or even just cashed up, I'd make the trip to check it out.
A guy I worked with in the RAAF had one back in the late 90's, had some work done to it and went like a shower of sh*t. Sounded bloody nice too.

high level stoplight

boot badges seem way too high up and LH one is wrong size for a 12/87 build

RE88's from new, don't think so

a very clean car though, I have a soft spot for the blue VL's too
