1996 HSV CLUBSPORT VS for sale

Price: $38,990
Quality HSV collector VS ClubSport Build No 1397 in striking Alaskan White now for sale from our Sydney Showroom.

The HSV ClubSport was born in the late 1980s when HSV decided it needed a new entry-level car to attract those who wanted the HSV badge but couldn't justify the price of the higher spec'd HSV models. The resulting ClubSport became one of HSVs most popular and effective performance cars featuring great looking body kits with deep front aprons, solid side-skirts, prominent rear spoilers, and aggressive five-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels. Under the bonnet, the 5.0-litre V8 was treated to a few HSV tweaks, including a cold-air intake, low-restriction exhaust and some fiddles to the onboard computer. All up, HSV endowed the ClubSport with 185 kW of power and 400 Nm of torque. Nothing like the power of the last of the Gen-F HSVs but still a decent whack of torque especially in the low rev range.

For sale is a superb example of the HSVs VS ClubSport. Build No. 1397 is presented in totally original condition throughout. The car features the original Alaskan factory paint and shows nil accident damage, rust or dents. In fact this has got to be one of the cleanest bodies we have seen for a long time. Mechanically, the ClubSport runs the matching numbers 185 kW 5 Litre Aussie V8 engine mated to the four-speed T-700 automatic gearbox. HSV set the ClubSport up with a firm ride and the car's long wheelbase, wide track and independent rear suspension make it stable and easy to punt around on a racetrack or cruise comfortably on the highways. Motoring journos of the day concluded that HSV's ClubSport had a raw, racy feel.

On the inside, Build 1397 is in excellent original condition with the interior seat coverings in very good unmarked condition despite the genuine 172,437 Klms covered since new. The VS model ClubSport also features the first of the driver airbags for the Commodore. The HSV features working factory Air conditioning, Cruise Control, an upgraded Alpine Stereo with Alpine Amp & 12" Subwoofer, front and rear power windows, immaculate trim with perfect map pockets in the rear of the front seats, mint hood lining and HSV floor mats.

Sold originally by McGrath Liverpool, NSW, Build No. 1397 comes with a HSV Compendium and authenticity certificate, McGrath Holden dealership folder, owners log books and comprehensive service history plus two sets of keys.

Mechanically, the VS has been thoroughly maintained with new battery and rear muffler. The brakes have been serviced with new pads and machined discs.

The Clubby is riding on the factory 17" ClubSport wheels which have been cleared with excellent Kumho tyres. In the boot is the immaculate boot carpet, factory tools and the factory spare.

Everything works the way it should and the car drives tight and smooth and is a great example of the VS HSV ClubSport.
