    That's a few 100 dollar bills I would bid around that if I had money just taking brocks old comy for a lap would be worth that I might have to message Perkins and find what the motor spec was , I was thinking since I have all the Parts just alote of time on my hands over the next year I'm going to put one together can not wait to it's finish when I have done permit pick daughter up from school and go for a drive look on her face would be priceless lol

    Which '05' Big Banger ? The real one or the fake one ? One is original, the other is a replica.
    As PB had authenticated both the Bathurst Museum '05', and the heavily restored ex Peter Champion '05' as being genuine, I await your Googlexpert opinion as to which is which.

    HRT didn't exist in 1984, you are referring to HDT. I would suggest either trying the AV8 forum or the Brock Commodores.com website.
