Product Description: 1:12 Scale Holden Dealer Team #25 Holden VK Commodore Group C - 1984 James Hardie 1000 Runner-up - Drivers: John Harvey / David Parsons

Limited Edition Number: To be announced

Product Specifications: Sealed body resin model with clear windows and detailed interior

About This Product:

In 2024, Holden, Bathurst 1000 and Australian motorsport fans will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of one of the most famous results at Mount Panorama featuring the 'Last of the Big Bangers', the #05 and #25 Holden VK Commodore Group C's raced by Peter Brock / Larry Perkins and John Harvey / David Parsons to finish 1-2 in the 1984 James Hardie 1000.

The sister car to Peter Brock's Big banger was always the bridesmaid but never the bride. Built at the same time as Peter Brock's VK they shared almost identical build processes, so was well placed to become runner-up at the 1984 James Hardie 1000.

Driven By John 'Slug' Harvey and David 'Skippy' Parsons, both seasoned veterans of the mountain, there was little chance of an outright victory when racing against their team mates, Larry "LP" Perkins, and King of the Mountain, Peter Brock.

While the race was virtually flawless for Brock and Perkins, #25 had a dose of bad luck, at one point the gear lever came straight out of the gearbox! Parsons was adept enough to cram the stick back in and pull in for a pit stop to fix the issue which put #25 down 2 laps. In the end that meant losing only one place, naturally to #05.

Now, 40 years after that magic 1-2 finish, Authentic Collectables are excited to announce our 1:12 scale replica of the #25 Harvey/Parsons runner-up model.

Scheduled to be produced in sealed body resin format, this impressive large scale model will feature clear moulded widows, detailed racing cockpit, incredible exterior finishing, racing wheels and more.

As with all our releases in 1:12, this model will be produced in an exclusive limited edition with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Due to Australian tobacco advertising laws, the model will be produced without the complete livery applied.

This is one of a pair of the most iconic cars in Australian Bathurst 1000 history, and in this impressive, large scale, it shouldn't be missed. It will be a centrepiece in any model collection, bar or man-cave display.

For Future Release Model Cars:

We have A LOT of future release model cars listed on this website and it's not uncommon for these items to take anywhere between 6-18 months to arrive.

If you're interested in ordering/buying these models then you have two options available to you:

Pre-Order Model Cars At Your Local Stockist:

If a model car is marked as a future release on our website then please enquire about placing a pre-order with your local model car / hobby stockist as soon as possible.

Please note, all stockists are seperate businesses to Authentic Collectables, we are suppliers to them. Each stockist has different ways of how they accept pre-orders for future release models.

To find your local Authentic Collectables stockist, please click here.

Register Your Interest For Model Cars Here On Our Website:

You can also register your interest for future model car releases online with us to be notified when they are released.

To do this you need to navigate to the product page of the specific model you're interested in.

Once you're on the model product page, please click on the black 'Register Your Interest' tab which should appear on the right hand side of your screen on each future release product page on our website, enter your email in the relevant section and submit the form.

When the model arrives in stock you will receive an advanced email notification from us letting you know that it is in stock with a link to complete and pay for your order while stock lasts.

Please ensure your email address is right before submitting the register your interest form. Unfortunately a confirmation email isn't sent when you register your interest for models on our website, the only time the system will email you about that specific model will be when it arrives in stock.

We offer this option due to the amount of time models generally take to produce (usually 6-18 months) so you're not out of pocket until the model actually arrives.

For Future Release Prints, Books + Other Products:

Depending on the type of product or brand, we also offer a paid pre-order option on our website.

If a product is available for paid pre-order on our website then you will be able to add it to your cart and purchase it like any normal in stock item.

Details about the pre-order will be listed at the top of the product description if it’s available and when we expect it to arrive in our warehouse.

A paid pre-order option will only ever be available on our website for products that aren’t models - we usually use this feature for prints, books and other non-model products.

We offer the paid pre-order option online with us for these products because we can predict production and shipping times more accurately and are usually much faster than the model cars to produce.

Of course, if you wish to order these items from your local stockist, please make an enquiry with them.

For All In Stock Products:

If a product is in stock then it should now be available at your local Authentic Collectables stockist or you can shop online directly with us and it will usually be shipped on the next business day unless otherwise stated or it's a holiday period.

 

Product images used on our website may be of a real car photo, model car photo, mock-up, render, illustration, prototype or production sample and are used for display purposes only.

Please be mindful that the vast majority of products available from us are produced in limited edition numbers and will only be available while stocks last which is why it is very important to pre-order at a stockist (or here online where possible - see above) or register your interest for future release models.
