I wonder if they were any quicker than the heavyweight Calais, the stockers still look good in their own right.

Just to dig up an old thread....

Mine is a A8S, although its 12/86, and I bought it from the original owner

No rear headrests, 1" master cylinder, rear disc 3.08, factory tow pack, black door handles (although with black scuff plates), but has a full instrument panel, and when i got it, had calais wheels on it....

Also, mine had been re-sprayed a few years before i got it, so cant help with pinstriping.

i recently bought a vl wagon with the code A8S. it's had alot of calais parts put on it and has had a two tone respray somewhere along the way. i bought it as a project as she's a bit rough around the edges, so just doing it up bit by bit.

sorry mate, missed your reply. nah mine's currently dark green over silver and started life as a gold colour. it's now got a calais front end, calais dash, grey seats and door trims

pic is just before i bought it, now wears vs statesman rims. i'm currently pulling bits and pieces apart to tidy it up, have removed gas setup and towbar, and halfway through installing a new built trimatic and b&m megashifter
