The IRS director is not a VLT but even talking vls as a whole there were 9 directors but only 4 1koo1-d HDT models.
Im pretty sure there are more then 4 HSV F20's too which I do believe are a rarity too but as stated was simply my opinion on what I thought were very desirable vlts and rare at that.
In saying that we have known where 3473 and 3533 have been/are owned by but the 2 black sports have vanished off the face of the earth.
As said the above was my opinion
I thought you may have been just referring to the 4 Black Turbo's.

Only 2 of the F20 model built. How many of the similar looking SV CC variant were built is another story. Supposed to be one 3L one and I have confirmed 3 Turbo's with a possible fourth one as well. SV CC models I know at least continued into the VN and VQ range.

As for the Director model (all V8) the answer isn't 9 built unless maybe the question is how many customer cars were built. To the best of my knowledge there were 14 built although two of them changed spec levels before being sold by HDT, leaving another 12 Directors with the first two wearing LE kits and the third being the car that was unveiled ending the relationship between Brock and Holden. I have seen 8 of the 14 in person which includes the two that changed spec and 4 of 5 IRS equipped versions.

post number 47 in this thread is the car in question and a pic with the color coded stars, beautiful car!
Also HDT invoice back in march 1987 was just over 10,000 for this car. That's a lot of money for then!

HDT/Brock fitted various stereo options, the equaliser being a rare option. Some Sports got these different stereo setups, some Sports didn't as below:

[COLOR="Silver"]

Some more sports to fill the gaps posted by Brockcommodores user: "HDT 046"
4101 - Factory 6.0 Litre


4122
[COLOR="Silver"]

Are these two photos the same car (Back window decal and badge positions the same)





and...





Does anyone know this NSW car? Rocked up to a Dyno Day and last seen 2004?



Another one spotted hanging around the internet plates TB969:



Emailed to me a (Current?) restoration?



...and of course the Sport Press car:



Have been emailed a photo of Build 4225, recently at Auction:



Another unknown Turbo Sport photographed from a magazine:



---------- Post added 01-01-14 at 12:37 ----------

I also updated the list on the first page...
