Rare Holden Brock HDT Director Sedan Goes Under the Hammer
Released just after the Brock/HDT partnership was dissolved, the VL Director’s mission was to take on European cars that were dominating the Australian automotive scene. Different from other offerings, the VL Director could offer more than 300 HP if ordered with the ludicrous 5.6-liter “Stroker” package and came with an unusual amount of luxury features, including leather seats and wood-grain trims.
It’s hard to say if these cars were actually successful since the late 1980s meant a lot of trouble, but the HDT Commodores are highly collectible in the Australian Outback and can fetch up to AU$200,000 ($207,020) depending on mileage and version.
This particular version of the VL Director we stumbled upon is going up for auction at the upcoming Shannons Melbourne Auction on April 29 and it’s expected to sell for at least AU$70,000 ($72,457). Assembled in 1987, the purple performance sedan shows only 71,350 kilometers (44,334 miles) on its odometer and sports optional Momo Star wheels.
