Hi Lesley,

I have owned a Group A.

What is your build number xxx/500?

There is a "Bible" that has all the numbers of all HDT cars.

Your can buy it from one of the Brock Commodore forum members.

You will unlikely get what you want from GMH.

Hi gary i dont know the build number thats y i was asking wat do i do all i have left is about 6-8 sets of old rego papers pinkslips etc i have the tower number and engine number and thats about it is the r e a way to get the gm number as i spoke with the bloke at hdt and he said if i had the gm number he could reproduce the actual hdt tag and give me a letter of authenticity i thought the tegister wouldve operated from the actual body or tower number as ive quoted as the body number is ***** encorperated in the tag set up isnt it thats y i thought gmh may have somthing that i could go on mow back to the bible thing how do i go about getting a copy of that as i kinda remember its build number around 245 just cant b exact and with this nible thingy is it possible to identify my brock from either the tower number or engine number anyway if u could let me know where is get a copy of that bible and is it going to b able yo help cheers ***** *****

Hi Les,

GMH had some stupid identication manners in the early days.

I think you need this bible:

Hopefully it will take you backwards from an engine number etc.

I can still remember mine, 448/502, build no 2905, engine number VC551104.

I think if your engine and chassis matches within the bible, that should be enough.

Your engine number is ***** correct for a Group A, should start with VC, like mine.

Getting the plates will be near impossible though.

The worst part is knowing somebody else is trying identity theft.

Hi Les,

How are you going with your research?

Are you buying a bible from the ebay seller?

I do hope you get this sorted.

Kind regards.
