What SL/R’s , GT’s and Charger. What colours are they.

I was getting back to the original story. There was an L34 looking car in there as well. I can't find the original video anywhere anymore.

This is the one I am interested in. The A9X rear flares remind me of one I have seen in the past few years.

Looks more like an L34 flare that has been later made way wider than even an A9X flare.

The car is neither a L34 or A9X.

 

From discussions i had early in the piece , Quote : It's a really bad clone .

I know the L34 and it’s correct in every detail.

The L34 left Patterson Cheney who did all L34 conversions with the smaller original wheels. The car was restored to its original format as it left the factory.

LCK186 I think it may have been sold new in NSW. The car has been in Victoria for many years. During the time the police had the car, they tracked down previous owners and had it authenticated by previous owners, GMH and people who worked on them at GMH in the day.
