just bumped into an old mate who reckons he recently bought an original single owner (recently deceased) 5.0ltr Executive with 75 000 clicks for $2500. The widow wanted it gone out the driveway and flogged it off cheap. He reckons he'll bring it round my place soon which should be interesting

saw one of these parked at the row of shops ner the corner of clayton and centre road.

it was red over mx, an exec and had the 5.0 badge and turbo hubbies.

15" rims would have been stock as bigger power = bigger wheels, also the biger booster and master cylinder, and breaks.
they should also have a disc 28 spline diff.

i was under the impression they have a berlina spec tacho dash aswell. but i am not 10% on that.

yeah they come with the bigger brakes, master cylinder and 15 inch wheels/ turbo hubcaps, im trying to workout what the go is with the berlina spec dash as mine doesnt have one if i can get a copy of another build sheet that would help heaps

have you got your build sheet? i will keep an eye out and ask the owner next time i see one.

i would say safely that the silver pinstriping is not stock and the berlina pinstriping is a dealer added option at the most

my mate with the 5.0ltr Exec came past the other day, original 75 000kays which I completely believe. Only mods are a resprayed bottom half to asteroid silver and new internationals as well as new top gun ignition leads, everything else stock standard. It was nice to go in a low kay unmolested VL, she even went pretty good despite the 5.0ltr being classed as a slug. Even had factory optioned LSD which I found surprising. All in all a great car which the ******* picked up for 2500 and apparently got offered 6 for it, but that who knows really

I'll try for ya thing is he's an old school mate I see here and there so only If i bump into him or if he comes past again will I be able to see but anyway I'll let you know. Also just for info sake its an 87 model, it had the 6 cyl Calais cluster with speedo, tach, oil pressure, volts, coolant and voltage. Also had the blue lines on the cluster face. The car was white and had the light grey interior (maybe bluish grey?) and had the original analogue radio. Factory AC, LSD, PWR steer everything else lower spec (manual window winder, side mirrors etc)
