None of them have codes on them as they were not built in the Acacia Ridge body plant. The GMP&A cars never appear in mainframe report printouts using A9X as a pivot search as they were never registered or warranted. From memory you’d never know if the shell was for certain a race shell or a replacement road shell for an SS other than by MC7 on the body plate (of most I’ve seen). And a lot of “A9X” sedans raced were actually upgraded L34’s, however that was the norm - lots of XB were XA, VC/VH were VB, VL were VK etc. That was normal.
Some of the A9X raced too were SS bodies “A9X’d” by GMH before being raced, Bob Jane’s car that was totalled at Amaroo was one of those, it was rebuilt by Gary Rogers using an ex HDT shell and finished 5th at Bathurst 1979.
Those GMP&A race cars were only ever intended to be seen and raced as A9X though, but in reality they are not really an A9X, not counted in build totals etc. They were a convenient and effective means to an end. As were the road going cars, but for a different purpose.
