Rare opportunity to restore a car of this calibre, to your own specifications.
The Group C A9X hatch is the pinnacle of Australian Historic Motorsport. No other touring car has the charisma, excellent race record, provenance, reliability and user friendly handling charchteristics of the A9X. That's coming from a guy with a major Ford bend, who races a Group C RX7 Mazda! It took quite a while before the Commodores and Falcons, that came after the A9X, got down to similar lap times.
Footage of our 2 Group C 'HDT' GMP&A A9X's and our old Yellow Group C GMP&A we restored and sold in 2006.
With only a relative handful of these GMP&A special shells built for racing purposes, most of the circa 33 are accounted for and treasured by their respective owners. To find a genuine GMP&A hatch nowdays isn't an easy thing. They are either restored and on the race track, or original and sitting on display in museums and collections. An un-restored, project A9X GMP&A Hatch with genuine Group C race history, that is all there, just needing re-assembly and few odds and ends, presents an excellent opportunity to buy one of these iconic cars at a bargain price and turn them into whatever spec of racer, or collector car you want.
This particular chassis has all of its ID tags intact and was raced by Brian and Graeme Wilson sporadically in the late 70's, when more freedoms were given for greater reliabilty, safety and handling. The car had a hit at its last race at A.I.R, evidence of which is still with the car today. It was then converted to a road car (Cage and dump pipes removed) and registered. It still wore the same registration plate from 1980, when the current owner purchased it (See pictures). After spending a lot of time and money on unearthing the cars history and preparing the shell for a complete restoration, an unfortunate change of circumstances has occured, meaning this car must be sold as an "as is, where is" project only.
If you are daunted, or have never been involved in the restoration of a race car, and aren't too sure of the scale of the project, then please call for more information. Our own Ecurie Restorations will happily handle the job, building the car to the exact spec' of our 1978 and 1979 HDT GMP&A A9X Hatchback's. Our first car as a restoration team was a GMP&A Hatchback, we LOVE them and know them better than most.
